WHAT ARE OMBRÉ BROWS?

Ombre Brows are defined as a traditional powder brow with an elegant unique variation. The most popular ombre brow look tends to be slightly larger, with a very defined brow base and tail.  However, it is entirely up to the client as to whether they choose more softness of the brow contours.

What makes this look distinctive is the soft brow front with the gradual building of colour intensity along the length of the brow.  That said, it is entirely customizable. Brows are designed for each individual client to be theirs alone, and do not have adhere to any requisite pattern. 

Just as the word “ombre” suggests, the front of the brow appears pixelated and translucent. The artist then builds the colour making it gradually more opaque.   An ombre brow is nearly always created with a top-of-the-line tattoo machine with the artist applying specific methods to achieve the final look.

An ombre brow lasts at least 2 years, if not double, with excellent post-care and routine colour boosts.

HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?

An ombre powder brow treatment involves an initial session in which client and artist consult on things like skin type, skin condition, health history and any other relevant sharing to determine the best approach and technique. 

Following this, the brow is shaped based on the client’s dominant bone structure and contours.  A credible artist will only design a shape that suits the client.  In other words, a shape that is drastically different from the client’s natural features is discouraged.  There will be occasions when the artist can help detract from down turned brows which exacerbate the look of aging.  This is accomplished by giving a slight lift of the brow front or tail or both.  As this may require some brow hair maintenance for the client, it is important this is agreed upon. 

After shaping, the artist applies a topical anaesthetic and then sets about creating a beautiful set of brows.   Following treatment, after care for optimal healing is prescribed and the client returns for a perfection session 5 to 8 weeks later. 

On occasion, a client may need to return for a second perfection session.  This is often due to skin condition and the always-important aim of respecting the integrity of the skin.  The first session takes approximately 2 hours, and the perfection session about 1 to 1.5 hours.
