Microblading / 3D Hairstroke Eyebrows
3D Hair Stroke, also known as eyebrow embroidery, has become very popular in the last couple of years. Partly due to the trend of the fuller more natural looking brows that we see on catwalks and magazine covers all over the world. The brow is back, and it’s a statement that is here to stay.3D Hair Stroke, also known as eyebrow embroidery, has become very popular in the last couple of years.

3D Hair Stroke is a cosmetic procedure in which the technician will use a handheld machine to tattoo individual hair strokes to mimic the natural look of your preferred brow shape. Up to three different pigments can be used for this procedure to give it a natural multi-layered result that gives you the glamorous look you see on Hollywood stars. The benefits of 3D Hair Stroke is that it is tattooed into the top layer of your skin leaving the epidermis intact, meaning it is often quicker to heal and longer lasting than other brow procedures. This makes it a good option for a brow procedure for almost anybody.
When you think of eyebrow tattooing you may think of the blue-ish gray smudges that look like they were drawn on with a crayon. This is often the case of a poor quality eyebrow fill and not an individual procedure. At Goddess Permanent Makeup, we like to say that you will always notice bad cosmetic tattoo brow procedures, but you will never see GOOD brow procedures because they look so naturally most people don’t even see the difference. Not to mention the benefit of tossing your many brow liners, pigment powders, and the tiresome morning routine of filling in your brows yourself every morning just to have them wash off that night in the shower.
So what’s the difference between 3D Hair Stroke and Microblading?
3D Hair Stroke and Microblading can achieve similar results, with just a few differences. 3D Hair Stroke uses a machine while Microblading uses a single needle on a handheld tool. 3D Hair Stroke ‘tattoos’ your hair strokes in versus Microblading that ‘slices’ it in. 3D Hair Stroke tends to be a quicker procedure and heals in less time and lasts longer than Microblading.
Some will argue that Microblading looks more natural that 3D Hair Strokes but that is not true. A professionally experienced technician like the ones you would find at Goddess Permanent Makeup would be able to do this procedure with nearly identical results. The great thing about 3D Hair Stroke is it’s a tried and true method, that has been perfected by leaders in the industry for 25 years! The choice is always up to you, and we are here for you if you have any questions or concerns about either of these procedures.
