What Are Bold Brows? Popular Microblading Pattern Explained
Microblading has become such a popular term it’s impossible you haven’t heard of this treatment. “Tattooing” delicate hair strokes and thus getting perfectly shaped, natural-looking eyebrows became a huge trend, and different patterns developed, all under one name – microblading.
PhiAcademy is one of the pioneers in the industry and besides the already famous PhiBrows, Bold Brows became an even more desirable pattern. Let’s find out all about it.
What Are Bold Brows?
BoldBrows is a microblading pattern that gives a hyperrealistic eyebrow look with more volume. So, BoldBrows artists create hair strokes in a different way and the brows look more fluffy and more natural because the drawn strokes follow the natural direction of hair growth.
Bold Brows microblading uses so-called ‘twisted’ strokes in combination with short strokes to create a more voluminous effect. This technique gives eyebrows volume and fluffiness.
Do Bold Brows Have to Be Bold?
No, Bold Brows don’t have to be big, fluffy and bold. BoldBrows is just the name of the technique and this pattern of microblading can be done for people who want thin delicate eyebrows.
So, even when and if the trend of big brows becomes unpopular, that doesn’t mean that this technique will be obsolete.
How Is Bold Brows Done?
The same tool is used for Bold Brows as for microblading. It is a manual tool that consists of tiny needles. The needles make up a blade that is dipped into microblading pigment and then dragged through the skin to create hair strokes.
Some artists even use a newer, more delicate tool – nanoblade, so the strokes are even thinner.
Once healed, the created strokes resemble natural hair strokes. They are so delicate and thin that you can’t tell the difference between natural and tattooed brow hairs.
What Is the Difference Between Microblading and Bold Brows?
As explained above, the principle is almost the same – same pigments, tools, and procedure. Most people will not be able to tell the difference between microblading and BoldBrows.
However, BoldBrows technique is advanced and more sophisticated, so those who are familiar with it will definitely choose it over regular microblading. Natural is trendier so it’s understandable why Bold Brows take the win here.
What’s the Difference Between BoldBrows vs PhiBrows?
Both PhiBrows and BoldBrows stand for microblading techniques created by the members of prestigious PhiAcademy.
PhiBrows is basically a brand of microbladed eyebrows and great for people who have sparse and thin brows, while BoldBrows creates hair movement that gives super natural, hyperrealistic and bushy look.
The PhiAcademy members use their own tools and pigments and their name is known for quality.
How Much Does BoldBrows Treatment Cost?
BoldBrows treatment price, if the artist is not a complete beginner, is similar to the average cost of microblading. It is somewhere around $600, but the price may vary. The more experienced and professional the Bold Brows artist is, the more they will charge.
Who Can Perform Bold Brows?
Only a person who completed a Bold Brows training course and got certified by the PhiAcademy can perform BoldBrows treatment.
