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.
