Microblading, do you need it?
Updated: Jan 5, 2022
Spending to much time perfecting those brows? Microblading could be for you, find out why..
For many of us, perfecting our brows can be an everyday battle. The busy, arched and bold brow that we all dream of doesn't always come naturally. If you have sparse patches or narrow-looking brows then you'll know how much time, product and frustration it can take to get them looking fierce and bold. I don't know about you, but I used to spend up to 15 minutes just filling in my brows in the morning - I mean ridiculous right?
But with advancement in technology, new techniques have been introduced to help those in need of fuller brows and microblading is one of them (can I get an amen?).
With that being said, you have likely stumbled across this page because you are looking for a solution to your problem..
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face – a totally bespoke approach for each client,' explains Jalaf.
'The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end - needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut.
'The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.'

How is microblading eyebrows different from having your brows tattooed?
'Microblading, unlike tattooing, is not in the deep layer of skin, but more on the surface. This is also not permanent, and the colour fades within 18 months.
'The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo, as a handheld needle/blade is used – there is no electrical gadget that permeates deep in this technique. There is, therefore, more of a scratching noise, rather than a buzz of a tattoo gun which pierces the skin so deeply.'
Can you be allergic to microblading?
'There are people who are sensitive and allergic to some pigments, but in my experience, this is extremely rare. I will always perform a patch or scratch test to check you are not allergic prior to the treatment.'
How much does microblading cost?
'A Suman microblading treatment costs £500. This includes a consultation, the initial treatment as well as a top up treatment after 6-8 weeks.'
What actually happens when you get your eyebrows microbladed?
1. 'I shape the brow area by threading the hairs, cleaning up the area and preparing it for the treatment.'
2. 'Numbing – this takes 40mins using a topical ointment. While this is working its numbing magic, I'll show the client colour swatches and discuss together the best shade for their desired look.'
