Battle of the Brows

May 11

Anyone in the beauty community can tell you brows are a hot topic and an important feature. From sharply defined arches to soft, fluffy and natural looks, there are countless ways to achieve whatever brow style you’re after. But, if you’re looking for something more permanent than daily cosmetics, you may want to consider nano-blading, and the technicians at Merle Norman Cosmetics will be your new go-to!

Nano-blading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing that is used to create shaped, full brows. Unlike micro-blading, nano-blading uses fine and flexible pins to deliver pigment and create thin strokes that mimic natural hairs, with less trauma to the skin.

Techniques used in nano-blading not only thicken the appearance of your brows, but can also aid in re-shaping the brow, and filling in thin spots. Because the pins are incredibly small, or micro, the application is precise and extremely accurate, and with proper aftercare, the results can last for years.

When you begin your nano-blading journey, a Merle Norman Cosmetics technician will consult with you to determine your desired eyebrow shape and colour. From there, they’ll mark out the shape, tidy up your natural brows if necessary, and apply a numbing cream to the area being bladed. Then it’s time to nano-blade and fill in the area with fine hair-like strokes to give you the brows you’ve always wanted.

During the healing process, your brows may look darker than you anticipated. This is totally normal and in just a few weeks, your nano-bladed brows will blend seamlessly with your natural hairs.

Once everything is fully healed it’s important to see your technician again for a follow-up. At this point, your trusty technician will evaluate how your nano-blading healed and may make a few final adjustments or additions to ensure your brows are nothing less than perfection.
