Permanent Cosmetic Brow Styles – What is right for me?

There has been a lot of marketing and promotion about different brow styles which makes it very challenging for the consumer.  How do you know what is right for you?  Find a technician that is also a makeup artist and has studied classical brow shapes and the different facial structures.  Ideally your brows should follow the flowing arch from the top of the nose that curves up onto the brow bone.  This flow point is the ideal starting point.  Brows should then follow the bone structure.  Floating above the bone structure can create a “Mrs. Spock” alien appearance.  The brow should flow up the bone and then back down so that the tip of the tail is no lower than the base of the brow where it starts near the nose.  If it is allowed to drop lower at the tail it will pull the face down resulting in a more aging appearance.

Solid dramatic brows are one brow style.  They have a very “done” makeup look. While some people prefer this look, care must be exercised as it can be a harsher look on a mature face.  This style of brow can last the longest between re-enhancements.

Powder brows are a much softer look.  The appearance is less of a pencil and more like a bit of brow powder was added to fill in the brows.  They last well and can be re-enhanced typically every 2-5 years.

Hair stroke brows incorporate single hair strokes added one at a time with a very fine needle.  To keep the fine hair look less pigment can be implanted or the hair will get thicker giving a heavier look. While this style can look very realistic, this is harder to achieve if there is no existing hair.  Hair stroke brows require annual re-enhancement since much less color can be implanted to maintain the look.

Blended brows incorporate the hair stroke technique with some powder infill.  This style still maintains the individual hair appearance but with a denser look that requires much less maintenance. The brows are filled in more densely where they tend to grow more dense – on the inner half of the brow and the lower 2/3 of the brow. It is a very natural realistic looking brow for those who want a hair stroke look with ease of maintenance.  Like the powder brow this brow will need re-enhancement typically every 2-5 years.

My mom has been considering getting permanent brows. It seems to be growing in popularity. I feel like I’m seeing a lot of my friends doing this. Doing research and getting the opinion of a professional is an important aspect of making this decision, since it is permanent, like you said.
