Microblading is a fantastic procedure to invest in when looking for fuller, natural looking brows. If you’re looking for a flawless look that translates perfectly for your wedding day, both in person and in pictures, microblading is without a doubt the best procedure that will yield you the look you want. The best part? It will go far beyond your wedding day, honeymoon, and the first couple months of marriage. With that being said, it’s not exactly a procedure that you want to get days, or even the week, before your wedding.
In today’s blog, the team at iBrows Studio in Saco wants to talk a little bit more about the dos and don’ts about microblading when you have a wedding date approaching. Our hope is that these tips will provide you with the information that you need to schedule your microblading session with ample time. Let’s dive in.
Do Your Research
There are so many places that are offering microblading services at this point, you definitely want to make sure that you’re taking the time to do your research before committing to a particular studio. Aside from doing research on the process to better determine if it’s a good fit for you, you also want to make sure that the beauty technician that you see is someone you can trust. Check for testimonials and before and after pictures as well as pictures of brows that have healed.
Schedule Your Appointment in Advance
Once you’ve found a technician that you are excited to work with, it’s time to schedule your appointment. The healing process of the microblading procedure varies, but it’s best to give yourself at least three months time to let your eyebrows heal and fully settle. While the immediate results of this procedure are relatively natural looking, there will be some swelling that you’ll want to go down. Aside from that, giving your eyebrows a couple of months to heal will ensure that they look even more natural on your big day.
Find Your Ideal Eyebrow
Now that you’ve scheduled your microblading appointment, it’s time to find the ideal eyebrow shape and fullness. It’s always helpful to bring an image to the technician on the day of your appointment so that they have some idea of what it is that you’d like to achieve. Even though your natural shape will certainly contribute to the finished look, providing an example of thickness and shape can help to ensure you’re all the more satisfied with your results.
Follow the Aftercare Tips
The process of getting your eyebrows done is quick and virtually painless. With that being said, you are still going to need to prioritize the after care process in order for them to look the best they can. When the procedure is complete, make sure that you listen to your technician and ask any questions that you have. You want to make sure that you fully understand everything that you need to do to keep your eyebrows looking fabulous for months to come.
Don’t Skimp on This Procedure
When you have a big wedding coming up, the last thing that you want is to spend an outrageous amount of money on a beauty procedure. Even though that may be the case, this is not a procedure that you want to skimp on. Aside from less than desirable results, you can almost guarantee that cheap microblading won’t yield the long lasting results that a quality technician would be able to. For that reason, we always suggest budgeting for procedure rather than choosing a cheap technician.
Set Realistic Expectations
Microblading is an incredible procedure, but it’s absolutely necessary that you set realistic expectations prior to having it done. If you’re expecting a procedure that lasts for years on end, you’re not going to be pleased when you need to have your eyebrows touched up in six months. Aside from that, you also want to set realistic expectations for the process itself, the results that you’ll get, the cost of the procedure, and the after care that you’ll need to complete in order for your eyebrows to remain looking their best. By setting realistic expectations in all of these areas, you can feel good about the results that you receive very well knowing that they are what the procedure would yield and that you were prepared for them.
