Microblading and Ombre

The eyebrows ‘frame’ the eyes and influence the total symmetry of the face. The composition of the eyebrow, if done correctly, including colour; will add youth, beauty and simplicity to your life. Unlike the harsh ‘stencil looking’ or waxy brows commonly seen, the technique used by Kim’s Total Beauty will result in an authentic brow, whether you choose a heavy or soft appearance. We use your bone structure (not a stencil) as a guide to create the most flattering eyebrow design for you. Depending on the technique and colours used, your permanent brows can have the appearance of natural hairs with our Microblading method or have the delicate soft appearance of colour from brow shadow. Whatever result you desire your natural facial features will be enhanced.

Microblading

Microbalding is perfect anyone wanting a natural, undetectable, “perfectly maintained natural brow” look. These can be done with microblades or nanoblades, or with a machine, to create the appearance of natural hair. We follow the natural growth of any existing hair, or if there is no hair, we create an illusion of natural hair by creating a brow following the natural directional brow hairline. This can be done using one single colour or multiple colours for those with multi-tone hair.

Ombre

Ombre powder fill brows use a more traditional tattooing method, with longer lasting results, and works with most skin types, including oily or combination skin. Clients come back for colour boosts closer to the 12-18 month mark. The brow is also fuller and more defined or dramatic than with the microblading method. If you are someone who fills in your brows regularly with pencil or shadow, then this is the method for you! It mimics the look of filled in brows, without all the effort each morning.

Combination

The combination of microbladed hair strokes and a powder fill gives an incredibly natural looking brow. It’s a bit more defined and filled in than just straight microbladed brows, and a bit less solid and dramatic than the ombre powder fill.
