I wrote up this post straight after the proceedure. It's called Microblading, or Eyebrow Embroidery. I am absolutely deligted with the results.
A little bit of a background story - I wanted to get my eyebrows done for years (I am one of the victims of overplucking), however finding the right person for it was quite a task. Eyebrows are the frame of your face - hence the person doing it, in my opinion, must have artistic skills - that's where the main issue for me was. One day I stumbled upon Branko Babik's work - it's pure art, however I missed my opportunity to get it done by him last year. I was recommended to go to Vesna Jugovic, who runs his Phibrows branch in Vienna. This is what my eyebrows looked like:
She then used her tools to measure and establish the right proportions and curves of the brows.
Once I was happy with the shape and the suggested colour (she recommended matching my natural eyebrow colour), Vesna proceeded with hair strokes application using a blade. Minor pain, not anything significant. Here is the result:
As a final step I had this mask applied to my brows:
The cost of the proceedure was €259 + €50 for correction which I will have to go back for in 4-6 weeks, just in time for the Christmas markets!
