Microblading is a modern, semi- permanent, custom type of eyebrow tattooing. Microblading is accomplished entirely by hand through a precise technique customized to create your perfect brow. This technique is perfect for dry and fine textured skin. Oily skin with larger pores or thicker skin requires the hybrid technique for optimal results.
Monarch Signature Brow Enhancement is a revolutionary micropigmentation modality combining modern machine shading techniques with microblading. The result is a soft, powdered look with fluff for just the right amount of fine detail, also known as Hybrid Brows. All skin types can benefit from the hybrid technique eyebrow.
Your brows are carefully mapped according to your unique facial structure using specially designed software as well as the technician's artistry and ability; it can take nearly an hour to perfect your custom brow map, which will be used as a guide during service.
