LOL, I’m laughing at how much people are hating on bangs in this thread. Like “Noooo, don’t do it, you’ll regret it forever!” You know, some people actually look good with bangs. Especially sideswept bangs that blend with the layers around your face, that can look very classy.

I had powder ombre done (tattoo) and my brows looked like this for a couple weeks after but then they scabbed and faded significantly. Your brows WONT look like this permanently. I actually wanted mine darker after they faded and went in for a touch up.
However. The shade does look very dramatic. Without seeing the other side I can’t tell what it actually looks like on your face.

I have mine microbladed and mine were pretty scary the day after, they were so dark and intense but after a couple weeks of healing they looked amazing.
Hopefully after some exfoliating yours will fade, I would for sure call the place that you had them done and let them know it’s not what you asked for an if there’s anything they suggest. Or, call a reputable place and ask for some tips.

She said wait til the touch up to get the look og strokes of hair? No, that’s what microbladding is, strokes of ink to look like hair. I’m so sorry you’re going thru this. On the plus side, they will not be this bold in a few days, days 2 and 3 your brows will look the darkest. The other bees are correct, the color will fade. Whover did this, should not be licensed to do microbladding. This was my results, and how it’s supposed to look…

As a micropigmentation.master tech and instructor, I can tell you these will fade Dramatically… in the next 8 weeks. You will probably lose 50 percent if they were done with correct pigment. So don’t worry yet. You are looking at raw pigment. The skin layer has to heal over, creating a sheer diffusion. And, alot of the pigment will come off in flaking externally, also.in healing internally.
After 8 weeks, you will probably need to return for some lighter gentle strokes to break up and establish the brow. But it’s not abnormal for a “powder” brow to present this way, fresh. These pigments do not heal like a tattoo does, majority will fade and soften, and color will oxidize.

Btw microblading is a trendy word. It’s the oldest and most inferior result for micropigmentation. Which is why.it looks great initially and fails over time. It’s a new buzz on.old technology

Umm is this TATTOO???? what process is this?? Im not familiar with brow stuff.
May I suggest though, that you not cut your bangs but order clip-in bangs from Amazon or go into a Sally’s?

Oh man- do you use retinols on your skin? If so, use it on your eyebrows every day- that will fade them quickly.
Also, if your result was what you wanted, your timing would have been perfect. Now to July is a great amount of time to get your brows done and have them “set” by July (maybe with a touch up session between now and then).
The woman I go to is amazing and she explicitly told me she would not do my brows just before our wedding (I was closer to 6-8 weeks out) because she didn’t want me to feel rushed or stressed about the results not being exactly what I wanted.

I’m curious- you said microblading is a new buzzword on an old technique that doesn’t have long lasting results but you’re also someone working and training others in the industry- what do you usually recommend people do if they are looking into microblading or other treatments?

Can you update us with a pic OP? I’m curious to see both side by side.

Here’s an updated pic of both brows and a close up of the messed up one. Although they’re both not ideal, I feel that if she would’ve stayed inside the hairline on my right brow, it could have been manageable once healed in 2 weeks. You can see on the closeup that the tail end is beginning to lose color.
Depending on how much it fades over the next two weeks, I might just continue with my routine of microdermabrasion and microneedling to lift the pigment instead of getting a removal procedure.
Here’s what I’ve been doing:
– Washing 3x day with sensitive skin Dove
– Wiping the brows with hydrogen peroxide after washing (pigment comes off each time I do this)
– Retinol at night

i also got microblading and while i’m in love with my results, i will say that it will fade drastically. Within the first week of getting it, I was kind of afraid that it was too dark, but now i’m kinda wishing it didn’t fade as much (even with a touch up). So don’t lose hope, bee! Also, when I put on foundation or tinted moisturizer it definitely fades the eyebrows even more, so hopefully that gives you a little hope! Overall, I don’t think they will look too bad, especially if you have some eye makeup on, I think your eyebrows will look as if you just filled them in with pencil.

I only came by to say that I now know why Americans call a fringe “bangs”. Well, I don’t know why exactly, but at least I know where the term came from . ie .a style of cut for a horse’s tail apparently !

i dont know anything about microbladding, but it looks OVER done to me, like shouldnt the line stop where your natural eyebrow is, one of them looks like it ends a centimeter higher then the actual eyebrow, but im guessing this is the “messed up” one your referring too. The other one looks fine cause it looks like it lines up with the eyebrow hair.
And maybe thats why the other one is messed up, she was insistent on making them as even as possible so she just added more to the top of the other one even though it didnt line up with the hairs.
