When a client comes for an eyebrows procedure, we have to analyze what she wants and what is the best technique for her according with how many hairs she has in her eyebrows, if it is a new procedure or is a touch up, and additionally, her style in order to select the correct color, technique, and needles.
The desired effect defines the technique and the needle to be used.
The beginning of the brow should be the lightest part, the arch area is the darkest part of the brow, and the tail of the brow should be in the middle.
In order to simulate this effect, pass over the front of the brow the least amount of times, the tail – slightly more times, and the arch the most times.
One of the most important things to keep in mind is to keep the brow looking extremely natural looking.
Do not put a definite/harsh shape in the front of the brow, this makes an eyebrow look totally artificial.
For individual hairs with the microblading technique use the curved configurations: 6 f, 6r, 16 f, and 14 r
For shading eyebrows use the needles of 14 r with the traditional Softap technique
For defined and compact eyebrows use the straight tips 9 and 12 with the traditional Softap technique.
What about the color?
One thing to keep in mind is that one out of three women color their hair.
Many women do not keep the same hair color for their entire life.
In fact, some women change their hair color frequently.
How to know what color to choose in cases like this?
The best thing to do is to go by the color of the hairs in the eyebrow area.
If you want to get a shade effect, choose a color that is lighter than those hairs. It makes for a natural undetectable look.
If you want to do individual hair strokes, select a color that matches her natural eyebrow hair. It is better to select a neutral or warm color. If you want a cooler effect, mix it with a cool color, but do not use a cool color alone.
If you want to achieve a solid effect, select the color that complements her skin tone.
For Caucasians select a neutral and light colors
For Hispanics, select a neutral and dark or any warm color
For Asians, select a neutral and dark or a cool color
For African- Americans, select a warm color
