What's the difference: Microblading, Ombre Brows, and Nano Brows

Step into the world of brow enhancement as we explore the details of two popular techniques: Ombre Brows and Nano Brows. We'll break down the tools, techniques, and learning curves for aspiring beauty professionals. Join us in discovering what makes these methods stand out in the ever-evolving field of brow artistry.

Why We Don’t Teach Microblading Anymore Microblading is an older technique that uses a manual blade tool to cut the skin and implant pigment. While it was once popular, we've moved away from it because it’s less precise and can be more traumatic for the skin. Instead, we focus on Nano Brows and Ombre Brows, which use tattoo machines for better results.

Ombre Brows: Soft Shading Ombre Brows have become a favorite for those wanting a more filled-in and polished look. This method uses a tattoo machine to deposit pigment, creating a gradient effect that beautifully shapes the eyebrows and can sometimes include machine hair-strokes in the forefront.

Learning Ombre Brows usually takes a few months. Artists need to practice machine techniques, pigment application, and perfecting the shading effect. Hands-on training and consistent practice are crucial. We do recommend our ombre brow course as a beginner intro to PMU in general.

Nano Brows: Precision Nano Brows are at the forefront of brow enhancement, using ultra-fine needles to create precise hair strokes. This technique offers unparalleled detail, giving clients incredibly realistic eyebrows.

Mastering Nano Brows takes dedication and a keen eye for detail. Due to the precision needed, the learning curve can be steeper. Expect to spend additional time perfecting your technique with lots of hands-on practice.
