Our brow expert, Ashley @BrowPro, is so excited to bring powdered ombré and combination brows to her offered services here at Byōōdē Bar! These exciting new trends in brows create a super soft, fresh makeup feel to your frons, in a semi-permanent procedure that lasts 16-36 months.
Let's break down what these new services are and why we're so excited about them.
Using a small rotary tattoo machine to implant pigment, powdered ombré brows are meant to look more filled and powdery, like a fresh makeup look. The tail of the brow is always darker than the head, which is where it gets its ombré name.
Your personal results will vary from soft, medium, or bold, depending on your individual skin and its receptiveness to pigment, along with your personal style and how much pigment is used. Immediately results will be quite bold but, like all brow procedures, will fade to a softer look within a few weeks. You will need a touch up after the initial appointment, but that touch up is FREE if you come within 90 days from your first visit.
The best part about these brows is that the advanced technology has made the procedure virtually painless - far less intense than microblading, that's for sure. The rotary machine only scratches the surface of the skin to achieve the long-lasting results you'll love.
If you like the filled-in brow look but loathe having to spend precious time actually, you know, filling in your brows each day, powdered ombré eyebrows are for you. You'll wake up looking like your badass self, saving you time and the frustration of having a bad brow day. Win-win.
If trying to choose between the natural hair stroke or the filled in makeup look is keeping you up at night, fret no more. Combination brows are, wait for it... a COMBO of both looks for maximum awesomeness. Considered the "ultimate brow treatment," combination brows are the best of both worlds, working in perfect harmony to achieve a beautifully natural-yet-defined brow.
With combo brows, the inner "head" of the brow is feathered with hair-like strokes, while the tail is powdered for that perfect definition. Using the same machine and techniques as the powdered ombré, you still enjoy the pretty-much-painless benefits of this new procedure while getting the perfect mix of hair and powder.
Healing and Aftercare
For both the powdered ombré and combination brows, healing takes 2-3 weeks. For the first 3 days your brows will be very dark, and then they will start to scab. Unlike microblading that scabs in patches, powder brows scab in one big (or a few big) pieces. And yes, that sounds gross, but it's a super important part of the healing process! Don't forget, we take your health seriously - read this post to find out how.
The best thing to do to take care of those healing brows is to leave them alone. NEVER pick at the scabs, as this will prematurely pull the pigment out of the tattoo, leaving bald spots. So don't touch them, and those scabs will naturally fall off about a week and a half after treatment.
Just like microblading, your brows will fade quite a bit after the first treatment and will need a touch up to transform into their final hue. Your first touch up is FREE with Byōōdē Bar, as long as you come back within 90 days of the first treatment (and after you are fully healed). If you wait longer than that, please contact us to find out what your touch up pricing will be.
So, which will it be - the powdered ombré or the combination? We can't wait to see you!
