Microblading vs. Microfeathering

What is the Difference Between Microblading and Microfeathering?

A common question we get asked here at Hairy Little Things is, “What is the difference between microblading and microfeathering?”. The answer simply depends on what your brow goals are!

Microblading

Microblading is for our 90’s babes out there who went a little too crazy with their tweezers. The microblading process involves placing strokes over your entire brow area to create fullness and shape. Someone who is a perfect candidate for microblading is one who wants a full brow reshaping, symmetry work, and fill-in as the strokes are placed closer together compared to microfeathering.

Microfeathering

Microfeathering is typical for those with already naturally full brows, but want an extra “oomph” to fill in those random sparse areas and ditch the brow pencil! Microfeathering subtly adds strokes in the brows for more fullness but doesn’t change the natural brow shape. This results in the most natural look possible. Microfeathering requires a 4-8 week second-session, just like microblading!
