3 Day Certification

In Person Training

Ombré Powder Brow Certification

Microblading and Ombré Powder Brow Certification is a 4–day in person training course. Day one and day two are dedicated to learning the art of microblading including a guide to mapping the shape, skin types, skin thickness, pressure, and color theory. Day three is dedicated to learning the art of ombré powder brows.

What is Ombré Powder Brows?

The desire for crisper lines and deeper pigmentation is growing. Defined brows that make a statement are popular due to icons such as Kim Kardashian and Lady Gaga. Ombré powder shading defines the brows. It is our experience at BrowBeat that people use the word “natural” when they actually mean: “Please don’t let my brows look like a tattoo.” Many clients are leaning toward a more highly pigmented brow for a fashionable camera – ready look. Two treatments are required to bring the brows to their result, adjusting color density and depth during the second treatment / touchup. The density and color depth can be added to for clients that are usure of color depth in their initial treatment.

Ombré powder brows or shading performed with a machine, is different from the microblading technique. A shading machine is used to add soft layers of pigmentation that provide a blanket of color over the brows. This blanket of color creates color density or “fill” that gives the brows definition. Shading is not hairstrokes, but tiny dots of color (or pigmentation). This added color or pigmentation, will make a brow more defined and dramatic and may mimic a makeup powder or pomade. While microblading alone can look natural and understated, an ombré powder brow can make the brow stand out, structuring the brow and making it a statement.

Ombré powder brow shading pigmentation is more dominant at the tail fading towards the head of the brow. This faded head or “ombré” graduation keeps the brows from looking harsh and over pigmented. The eyebrow shape is one of the most important parts of the treatment outcome. Our eyebrow shape defines our look. Some people like bold, some like slim- medium, whatever the case, the objective is to enhance the natural beauty of the client, creating a low to no maintenance brow. Most clients will obtain a 60 – 90 percent result on the first treatment. The second treatment is vital to complete the brows and to address minor discrepancies after healing. This meticulous second treatment / touch up is essential, as there will be pigment loss during healing. Ombré powder brows pigment can reduce by up to 40% when healed. Additionally, the second treatment / touchup will make the brows hold in the skin for a longer period of time.

About The Day

The ombré powder brow certification is the third day of the 4 – day course. Learning the art of ombré powder brow shading is imperative to a microblading business. Clients are asking about shading as a service, so it is an important skillset to learn from the get-go. The microblading outcome is sometimes not enough for all clients to be satisfied with the results. Adding ombré powder brows or “shading” (they are one and the same), can increase pigment and bring the client to their desired look. Shading is a versatile skill and can also be used to create combo brows and correct past treatments. The students will learn all about shading during day three of the Microblading and Ombré Powder Brow Certification.
