The Case Against Microblading - According to a Brow Expert

Being my mother's daughter made it pretty much inevitable that I would become brow-obsessed. My mom, Sania Vucetaj, is the owner of Sania's Brow Bar in NYC and has been in the industry for more than 25 years. A pioneer for full, bold brows, my mom trained me, my sister, and cousin on the art of brows, and we are now part of the business as well. I love being able to transform people's faces and enhance their confidence with a good brow shaping.

With that said, we've seen it all when it comes to brows. We've seen people try everything on the quest for fuller eyebrows from growth serums to brow hair transplants (ouch!) - but the new microblading fad may be one of the worst.

Microblading is a form of semipermanent makeup that uses fine deposits of tattoo pigments to enhance brows using small strokes. Or, it's another glammed-up word for "tattoo." Committing to something permanent or even semipermanent on your face is something you must carefully consider. Once that tattoo is drawn on, this is the shape you will be stuck with (at least, for a few years).

As someone who works on brows daily, I've seen some unfortunate results firsthand. Our team has had many clients' rush to our salon desperate to fix poorly or unevenly microbladed brows. Most women opt for microblading because they are hoping to shorten their morning beauty routines - but women with wrongly tattooed brows end up having to rely on brow products to fix them anyway.

While full brows are here to stay (and gladly so), as women, we have a right to change things up. Maybe we want to try a little bit more of an arch or a slightly straighter brow. Tweezers can achieve this with the pull of a few hairs (and maybe with the help of a few good products). But you cannot adjust the shape of the microbladed brow.
