Microblading vs. Micropigmentation vs. Brow2 Technique

As you probably know, microblading is a hot new trend in the beauty industry; however, many people either don’t know what it is, or they get it confused with other forms of Semi-Permanent Make Up (SPMU). Here is a guide to help educate you on the differences.

Micropigmentation: Any form of tattoo that is placed anywhere on the body – this includes traditional tattoos, as well as cosmetic permanent makeup. The practitioner can use any type of device, including a hand tool, digital cosmetic machine, or rotary tattoo “gun”.

Microblading: Uses a non-electric hand tool (it looks much like a pencil) to manually apply realistic hairstrokes into the eyebrow. Microblading uses a hand tool, and is only used to create hairstrokes. Many people use the term “microblading” as a general term for eyebrow tattoo. It is not the same! Microblading is a very specialized technique that takes years of practice to perfect.

Eyebrow Embroidery: This technique gives a similar look as microblading; however it can be created with any type of device or tool. It is mostly used to “embroider” hairstrokes in with existing hair, to give a realistic, fuller look. It may also include slight shading (also called “powder fill”) that looks like light fill-in color applied between the hairstrokes.

Brow2 Technique: This technique was created by and is used exclusively by Christopher Drummond. It incorporates all forms of micropigmentation (microblading, eyebrow embroidery, and powder fill), and uses all types of devices–to give you a customized eyebrow shape, style and truly natural look.

What is Eyebrow Embroidery?

Also known as microblading, this is a type of semi-permanent tattoo. We gently apply ink into the skin, so it looks like natural “hairstrokes”. The result is a very natural-looking, beautiful and undetectable result that lasts about 1 year. After the procedure, you only need a touchup once a year.
