Microblading eyebrows first started about 25 years ago throughout Asia. HDi embroidery brow is a form of semi-Permanent Makeup. That provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. Over time the strokes can blur and fade and will need refreshment.
Its history is not well-documented, but it went by so many different names such as:
- HDi embroidery brow,
- feather tattooing,
- eyebrow tattooing,
- “the Japanese Method” feathering,
In Asia, the technique matured as artists experimented with different brow patterns and tools and application techniques.
IN EUROPE AND NORTH AMERICA
A lot of modern techniques are now taken for granted and commonplace. Originally, many artists would cross hairstrokes in an “x” pattern, since in real life hairs do cross. However, this would injure the skin and looked less natural. Therefore these days, most artists are taught never to cross hairstrokes.
Today, more advanced techniques such as “3D Eyebrows” are popular throughout North America. Newer techniques start from the East and move to the West. Such as the “6D Eyebrow” by artists like David Zhang.
In the last few years, it had a surge of popularity throughout Europe & Australia, where schools and artists have established themselves as the frontiers for the West.
The history of microblading is very brief, but its future looks very bright and promising.
