EYEBROW HAIR GROWTH
Natural brow hair grows in different directions and is not always uniform. You must study different people’s eyebrows and notice how the direction of the hair growth differs massively even over only one brow. You should therefore always follow the natural direction of the hair growth of the brow and neaten up the shape for them to look as realistic but groomed as possible. 

In Summary: 

  • Eyebrow hairs have a thicker bulb, tapered tip and the shaft is slightly curved
  • Eyebrow hairs lay in different angles generally across the length of the brow
  • There are natural spaces between the brow hairs
  • The medial aspect of the brow is bolder and thicker in hair density and therefore more defined
  • The lateral aspect(tail)is tapered, and the density is sparse
  • At the medial aspect the first 3-4 rows of hairs lie at an 80-degree angle appearing to stand upright
  • From the medial aspect to the rise of the arch the hairs lay at a 35-45-degree angle
  • At the arch the hairs lay almost flat
  • At the lateral aspect(tail)the hairs lay at a slight downwards angle

Learning to draw perfectly symmetrical brows for all your microblading and Powder Effect clients is the most difficult part of the microblading process according to many technicians. Used by beauty professionals, designers, architects an engineer all over the world, including many greats like Leonardo da Vinci, the Golden Mean is a mathematical formula that helps you achieve the perfect pattern every single time! This mathematical formula is present in nature and in all things beautiful. For centuries, its perfect proportions have been considered aesthetically pleasing. Caliper includes four points that together fit the proportions of the Golden Mean formula.

Our eyebrow artists use the Caliper every single day when working with clients, but it doesn’t stop there. We also use it on our days off to practice drawing different brow shapes! We love practicing microblading and Powder Effect in our downtime. We are always striving to improve our techniques and learn new ones to cater to more clients’ wishes! 

When a technique is new to us, we try it for ourselves first on paper with pencil, then on artificial skin with professional tools. The Caliper helps us find the exact shapes we need in both instances! And it is there for us as we move on from paper and artificial skin to live models and clients. Simply put, we cannot do what we do with out this tool!
