Microblading is one of the most popular eyebrow design techniques around, but it is not for everyone. If you are part of that group, then there are excellent news ahead for you!

At this point, we all know that microblading uses tattoo ink to fill sparse areas of your eyebrows. And micro-shading does the same thing, but there are some differences.

What is micro-shading?

Micro-shading is a brow treatment where the brow technician uses a fine pen to make individual tattoo marks that resemble subtle shades in between your eyebrow hairs.

Sometimes, this technique can be also called “powder brows.” The technician uses a very fine pen with semi-permanent ink and it is called that way because it creates the illusion of a shade, unlike microblading, that draws fine hair. Treatments can cost anywhere between $300 or $1000, depending on where you get it done and the skill of technician.
