For The Brows

OMBRE POWDER BROWS

Ombre powder brow is a semipermanent makeup technique done with a rotary tattoo machine. This procedure is a favourite one for all beauty lovers.

Who should do it: It is great for those of you who have normal to oily skin and want a soft powdered look for their brows. It is also a good fit for those who want to fill in, shape, or enhance their existing brows. The pigment lasts for 1-2 years and costs approximately ₹29,000/- for two sittings.

Note: You will need to take two sessions spaced at 6-8 weeks apart.

MICROBLADING

Microblading is precise strokes created with a hand tool to give the illusion of real brow hair. During the procedure, custom blended pigment is implanted in the skin to create the effect. It gives a natural brow look and the cost starts from ₹19,500 for one sitting.

Who should do it: This service is great for those of you that have dry to normal skin type.

Note: You will have to take two sessions spaced at 6-8 weeks apart.

Time required: Eyebrows require two sessions. During the first session they are brought up according to the bone structure in the facial proportions along with doing the procedure. The second session held in 6-8 weeks is called perfection session which is done to ensure everything heals evenly.

Durability: Semi-permanent services last up to 2-3 years depending upon the skin type and lifestyle. However, to maintain them, we recommend getting touchups every 12 months.

COMBINATION BROWS

This procedure is a combination of both microblading and ombre powder brows and gives the benefits of both procedures producing a striking appearance! It creates strokes initially and gives symmetry shape with the help of ombré powder brows. It gives you bold, defined shape brows like a natural brow look. It lasts up to two years and the cost starts from ₹ 20,000 onwards.

Who should do it: This treatment is for people who have scanty brows asymmetry or scars.
