Powdered Brows Are In. Are You Ready to Ombré?!

One of the things that I love about the beauty industry is that there are a ton of different ways to bring that pop to your personal style. Eyebrows are no different. Between microblading, henna, and powdered brows, the possibilities of creating fierce looks for your eyebrows are endless. And while I love all the techniques, lately, I’ve become obsessed with ombré powdered brows and my clients are loving it too. In this week’s post, I’m doing an FAQ on all things Ombrè. I dare you to try this amazing new brow shaping technique at your next Sugarlillies appointment.

So what exactly are Ombré powdered brows?

It’s a semi-permanent powdered brow that produces hair strokes that are full, yet very soft. The technique looks like daily makeup done with eyebrow pencil or eyebrow shadow so it’s absolutely perfect for my clients who already have brows but are just looking for a little fill in.

What’s the difference between ombré, microblading, and henna?

The powdered brow is a great look for those who have brows but are looking for a more solid look. Microblading is a slightly more intense process and involves creating fine hair strokes and allows the artist to create a more “natural” looking brow. Henna brows are similar to the powdered brow but they are temporary, great for my clients who have sensitive skin or are looking for vegan-friendly options.

How is it done?

It’s a manual process of inserting pigment into the top layers of skin. It’s a two-step process that starts with the initial insertion of pigment and follows up with a touch up 6-8 weeks later.  

How long does it last?

Anywhere from 2-4 years, but it will eventually fade over time, but it tends to last a little longer than microblading.

Does it hurt?

That’s always the million dollar question, right? It’s different from person to person, but I will say that if you’re one who already waxes or plucks your eyebrows regularly, you probably won’t feel much. If you are someone who doesn’t regularly pluck, it might be a little uncomfortable, but trust me, you’ll be totally fine.

Each One Teach One: Giving Back to the Next Generation of Hennaticians

It’s true. The beauty industry is by and large focused on what we look like and as an aesthetician, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t obsess about the latest looks and trends. But one of the reasons I got into this business was to help women embrace their natural beauty and find looks that not only make them look great, but feel confident and beautiful. Another thing that excites me about my work as I grow as a professional is to help and inspire other entrepreneurs in this field.

Today, I look in the mirror and I see a confident successful business woman and artist, but I didn’t always feel that way. It took some time to get here and there were others along the way who mentored me and helped me sharpen my skills. And that’s why I’m committed to mentoring, teaching, and empowering other women in the business. My work is my passion and when you’re serious about your craft, you have to be at the top of your game. If you’re an aspiring aesthetician, or you’re experienced and are looking to get your hennatician certification, this opportunity is for you.

That’s why this September, I’m teaming up with Jenn Boyd of @jennboydink to teach our Hennatician Certification course. We’re coming to New York City, Dallas, and D.C.! Spots are filling fast so get on the list!



Henna Brows???

Take this quick quiz to find out if henna is the next big move for you and your eyebrows!

✓ Into the Vegan lifestyle

✓ Have sensitive skin and need a natural alternative to typical powdered brow looks

✓ Want well-defined, natural-looking eyebrows

If you checked at least one of these boxes then you need to add henna eyebrow shaping to your monthly beauty regiment. It’s not only one of the biggest beauty trends shaping the nation (pun intended), it’s a safe, au naturel, painless, alternative to microblading and traditional powdered brow looks that may irritate your skin.

Have I got you interested? Great! Here’s a quick and dirty guide to henna eyebrow shaping.

  • How long does it take? The entire process can take up to 45 minutes.

  • Is it painful? Nope. Unlike tattooing, the henna is brushed on. No pain involved!

  • How long will the results last? The henna coloring can last up to 7-14 days on the skin depending on skin type and lifestyle.

  • Yeah, this sounds good, but is it expensive? Henna brow shaping cost depends on the artist. Check out our pricing!

  • Is it natural? Yes, ma’am! The henna coloring is completely plant-based and is mixed with a purified water instead of a chemical activator.

Got more questions? No worries; we’ve got you covered. Drop us a line.
