Permanent Brows

Permanent Eyebrows

Permanent or Semi-Permanent eyebrows also known as micro-pigmentation is a form of cosmetic tattooing to create long-lasting, smudge-proof brows. These techniques are ideal if you have over-plucked eyebrows, sparse brows or brows lacking in definition or symmetry.

Permanent Eyebrows are the perfect solution if you have suffered brow hair loss due to illness, chemotherapy/radiotherapy or suffer from alopecia or other medical conditions that resulted in eyebrow hair thinning or loss.

There are various techniques available in the form of permanent eyebrows and some will be more suited to you than others…


Microblading is a permanent makeup procedure that allows reconstructing the eyebrows fully, during this process, it is possible to achieve the most natural look or bolder finish if this is your preference. Eyebrow microblading is performed by manually scratching and depositing pigment under the epidermal layer of the skin using a handheld tool and a nano blade consisting of several tiny needles. Tiny incisions are made in the skin to create natural-looking strokes that imitate and blend in with the natural brow hairs. A small level of discomfort during the procedure will be present as minor breakage of the skin is taking place; however, the ‘Hailey Dallas One Pass Technique” dramatically reduces the procedure time with less trauma to the skin, more precise work and improved healed results.  

Microblading is the perfect solution to correct your current eyebrow shape, add volume to brows or fill in sparse areas. It is also suitable if you have no eyebrow hairs, as we will create a new, beautiful, natural-looking brow. The aim is to create a brow that nobody would be able to tell that has undergone permanent treatment.

This treatment is ideal if you have suffered from illness or, due to chemo/radiotherapy, lost brow hairs or alopecia or other medical condition resulting in eyebrow hair thinning or loss.

With the  ‘One-Pass‘ microblading technique, we create microblade hair stroke flow that follows the direction of natural eyebrow hairs naturally blending in and creating a natural finish. The aim is to create a brow that nobody would be able to tell that has undergone semi-permanent treatment.

Unlike permanent makeup brow treatment, the microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that are more natural looking.

Microblading can be carried out on most skin types but the long-term results will vary.  Certain skin types can affect how long microblading will last and how it looks on the skin once healed. On a normal/balanced skin type microblading should last on average between 18-24 months with crisp strokes. On oily or dry skin it may last 6-18 months and the strokes may blur slightly or appear slightly more greyish in colour.  On Mature skin, the microblading may last a few years.

Manual Shading – included with your microblading

Shading is essential when the natural brow hair is sparse to blend hair strokes into the natural hair and to create depth and fullness to the brow, particularly at the spine.

We also use shading to balance the brows; for example, if one brow is higher than the other or denser, we can colour the areas on one or both brows to create a more natural and symmetrical appearance.

If you are looking for a bolder powdered brow, manual shading is not the best option.  Machine powder shading would be the more suitable technique to achieve this look.

Powder Brows

Powder Brows is an eyebrow shading technique used with a permanent makeup device similar to a tattoo gun. This technique creates a soft pixelated look. Powder Brows are also known as ombre brows. The ombre effect means that the inner part of the brow is lighter and gradually gets darker further out towards the tail. This results in a three-dimensional look. In terms of pain, powder brows are less painful than microblading as it’s not as harsh on the skin.

If you prefer a more filled-in style then this is the right procedure for you.   If you already have brow hair but would like them fuller and if you wear makeup every day then powder brows are best for you.

Powder Brow is suitable for all skin types, however, if your skin is oily it will fade more quickly.

Combination Brows

Combination brows also known as Combo/Combi or Hybrid brows are a mix of two forms of permanent techniques: Microblading and Powder Brows.  Fine microbladed hair strokes are strategically placed around the outline of the brow to give the brow a natural look whilst using the powder shading to blend the hair strokes with the natural hair, to create balance, symmetry and fullness.

The technique offers the best of both ‘powdered’ and ‘hair strokes’ effects combined together to achieve a beautifully natural yet defined brow.

Combination brows are also suitable for all skin types but this technique is good for correcting, covering up or freshening up old faded and discoloured pigment in the eyebrows.

Nano Brows

Machine Stroke Brows, otherwise known as Nano Brows are a form of brow tattooing that implements a handheld tattoo machine and one very fine needle to semi-permanently lay pigment under the skin, creating the look of actual eyebrow hairs. Microblading and Nano Brows are very similar and can sometimes be mixed up. The main differences:

  • Nano brows is done with a machine and microblading is manually created. The machine features an extremely fine needle, which vibrates and pierces the skin, depositing pigments in tiny dots that add up to strokes. The needle is flexible and thin, so it causes very little trauma to the skin
  • There is less scabbing with Nano Brows
  • Nano Brows is less painful, it may feel tingly or stingy

In terms of what treatment is best for you, clients with normal/balanced or mature skin would benefit most from this treatment. If you’re looking for a natural brow this treatment or microblading is good as it creates hair strokes to match the pattern in which your own hair grows in, allowing the most realistic looking brow possible.
