Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi permanent, compared to the traditional hair stroke technique. Lasts anywhere from 1-2 years. It’s called many things-micropigmentation, 6D brows. The term “6-D” refers to the visual effect of distinct hair strokes, as opposed to a brow that is “powdered-in” for a more solid effect. Gone are the days of stencilled, pasted-on looking eyebrows. This procedure does not damage or inhibit hair growth in the future. In fact many alopecia clients see a surge of hair growth right after the procedure, as it stimulates the hair follicles.


Naturally perfect eyebrows are few and far between, however Microblading makes it possible to achieve super natural looking brows, which are the nearest thing to natural perfection! 6D Microblading (also known as hair stroke brows, microstroking and micro pigmentation) is a form of permanent makeup and is a relatively new technique of enhancing the appearance of eyebrows. Microblading is performed with the use of an ultra-thin blade. This blade is a grouping of extremely fine needles affixed to a handle to manually create clean and crisp lines that resemble eyebrow hairs. Using a hand tool and blade, natural pigment is deposited into the upper dermal layer of the skin, making it semi-permanent for 1-2 years, depending on the skin type and lifestyle. This technique will give your client thin and defined hair strokes opposed to the conventional permanent makeup machine which can create a solid and unnatural ‘drawn on’ look.


My trainers have travelled to Ukraine to bring our South African Technicians the most up to date training and techniques. The Master developed program gave me the ultimate in knowledge, skill and confidence to become a successful Microblading Artist.
