There are three main types of microblading. They are all the same general process with different techniques and should last anywhere from one to three years after the initial appointment and a follow-up appointment six to eight weeks later. The amount of time you can go without a touch up depends on your skin type and other factors.
Hair stroke microblading is a classic type of microblading. With this technique, the makeup professional uses small hair-like strokes to make it look like there are more hairs in your eyebrows than there really are. This method is a good option for those who want to look like they woke up like this. It's a natural-looking option that provides the option of filling in for a more dramatic look when desired.
Shading, also known as a powder fill, is a much denser type of microblading. Instead of long, thin strokes that look like natural hairs, the technique is closer to that of a traditional tattoo, using dots of pigment clustered together to provide a more solid-color look. Shading is a better choice for clients who want their eyebrows to look filled at all times.
As the name suggests, the hybrid technique is a combination of hair stroke and shading techniques. Clients with more mature skin often benefit from this combination, but it is a happy medium that is versatile and popular with beauty fanatics of any age. In fact, if you're torn between hair stroke and shading, then the hybrid method would likely be a good starting point for you.
Clients with oily skin may find that they need touch-ups more frequently than those with dry skin. This is because dry skin accepts and holds onto pigment more readily than oily skin. Aging skin may also accept pigment differently and heal differently after the process is complete.
