Whether you like your brows arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are a distinctive facial feature. There are many ways in which to update brows including gels, pencils, and even tattooing. Yet there is also a very natural option that delivers semi-permanent outcome. Microblading is an advanced brow embroidery technique that results in extremely realistic hair strokes. This increasingly popular method is ideal for creating a very full and realistic looking brow and is now a service offered by medical esthetician and brow expert Jenell Arnold, owner of Touché Beauty Bar.
“Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked or over waxed brows. And those who just want to add a slight arch are also great candidates. Really, the method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows, which is why so many women are loving it,” explains Jenell.
According to Jenell, there are several hair loss conditions such as alopecia or trichotillomania in which women can benefit greatly through microblading, as well as those who are simply not content with their eyebrows. Jenell has been pleasantly surprised at how many clients she has been able to help with this unique new service she has been offering since becoming trained and certified in February.
Touché Beauty Bar client Jayda Williams shares, “When I first learned about the microblading technique, I knew without a doubt that Jenell would make the magic happen. If anyone was going to do it, it would definitely be Jenell. I trusted her completely and she restored my natural look without a flaw. Now I have fuller natural eyebrows that do not require maintenance. Microblading is so worth the investment.”
The results can last anywhere from one to three years depending on different factors affecting the procedure. Jenell includes a 30-day touch-up following the initial procedure and recommends an annual visit to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
“Jenell microbladed my brows, delivering the final 3-D touch in thirty days after the initial appointment. The result is gorgeous! I’m blonde and have had ‘brow envy’ for as long as I remember. I’m pleased to share I now have beautifully arched brows, of the c Ortega hue, that frame my face, highlighting my almond shaped eyes,” explains Dianna Rae.
Jenell explains that the pigments used in this method have been formulated to match the client’s original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. She emphasizes that it is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done after thirty days to assess how well the skin is retaining the pigment. This session perfects the brow when she can adjust the color or shape as well as add more strokes to complete the look for the client.
Commenting on the fabulous results, Tiffany Eklund shares, “Jenell did a great job creating a natural looking shape and color for me. I no longer have to use any product to fill or shape my brow nor do I have to be concerned about brow powder smearing or sweating off. The result is amazing.”
The microblading technique originated in China and quickly spread throughout Asia. In the last several years, Europeans have taken to microblading and adapted styles to their preferred stroke patterns and shapes. Now this revolutionary method for eyebrow restoration is offered at Touché Beauty Bar as it continues to be adopted throughout the United States.
While microblading is a semi-permanent form of tattooing, it differs in that a special microblading pen is used to draw individual strokes one by one. Jenell has been doing brows for thirteen years so adding this effective technique as one of her brow services seemed logical. “I love shaping brows and giving people the best brows they could ever imagine. Microblading mimics the natural hairline and gives brow hair shape, thickness and color,” explains Jenell.
