We spoke to Beautiful Brows Scottish Ambassador Chris Christoforou about the evolution of microblading:

“Over the last 3 to 4 years especially it’s become a lot more popular. Europe took it up first and compared to semi permanent make up you can get a much crisper and more defined look. It’s done by hand and if you get a nice cure with it, it looks amazing. It’s a very sought after treatment by consumers.”

He went on to talk about whom the course would benefit:

“Not only people who do semi permanent make up but also people who do lashes and do nails because its very intricate work they do and we think they’d be very good at, so we’ve aimed it for them as well as people who want to learn how to microblade professionally.”

David Zhang To Do More UK Masterclasses

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

David Zhang

David Zhang returns to UK for microblading masterclasses.

Following the success of his last visit, eyebrow extraordinaire, David Zhang makes his return to host a series of microblading masterclasses.

If you’re not familiar with microblading (you can read our previous blog on it here) it is a semi permanent make up solution for eyebrows. A small pen-like tool with tiny needles is used to create individual strokes under the eyebrow hair. This gives the illusion of natural hair strands to build thicker looking brows that last for around three years.

Microblading is referred to as ‘eyebrow embroidery’ in Asia, where Zhang hails from and he founded his brand David Brow Art in 1992. During his 24 years working with brows, he has trained 16,000 students, been World Champion in eyebrow beauty competitions twice and is now the leading expert and a judge for the Microblading Expert Panel at the World Microblading Conference.

He has also honed his skills and techniques; including strokes he invented himself, the 6D stroke and the PPL stroke (Press Push Lift). His secrets will be divulged at his 2-day training courses in July. The courses are being promoted by Beautiful Brows and are only suitable for people with professional training in semi permanent make up and/or microblading, as the aim is to help them improve on their trade and skills.

Microblading: What is it?

Friday, May 20th, 2016


Microblading is the new way to get perfect eyebrows.

Eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature, no matter how you like them; arched and feathered or straight and bold.

If you’re not satisfied with the ones you have, there are so many ways to update them (some of which we have covered here), including brow gel, pencils, and even tattooing. But now there’s a very natural option that delivers semi-permanent results. You’ve maybe heard of microblading before. Unlike the sometimes Sharpie-like effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of fake solution done in strokes that look just like real hairs.

Jade Trapanotto, founder of Beyond the Brows says:

“It puts the finest hairs back into eyebrows producing the best definition and dimension possible”,
“It originated in Asia and is also known as brow embroidery. It’s a fantastic treatment for anyone looking to improve or enhance the appearance of their eyebrows.”

Microblading before and after

Microblading before and after

The main difference is that a manual pen-like tool with tiny needles is used instead of a permanent makeup machine, so the strokes aren’t blurry. If you’re still not sure how the technique differs from tattooing, keep listening. During the microblading process a special microblading pen is used to draw on individual strokes one by one. It’s an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete.

Since the results will last for up to three years before beginning to fade it’s good to know that the technicians pay so much attention to detail. The first hour the shape is drawn in with removable pencil. That’s the longest part and the most important step. During this time, the best customized shape for every client is chosen. Professional microbladers advise clients to be cautious of places that claim to complete the process in one hour. This is not a rushed procedure and it cannot be done in an hour. Anaesthetic will be applied to the area to avoid discomfort, although the procedure shouldn’t be painful.

One of the best parts of this technique is that your brows are good to go immediately after application. Professionals, however, recommend a follow-up one-month after your appointment. The healing process is different for everyone, and it takes between 25 and 30 days. After a month it is recommended a client should have a 40-minute touch-up. After they have been done there is little to no maintenance. They will not rub off and they won’t smudge. Microblading typically costs around $700 to $800, so £480 to £550 here in the UK, but it will give you prefect brows every morning.
