Powder brows


The Powder brow or Ombre brow has been created to mimic the look of an eyebrow tint stain. They are more dense in colour at the tail and arch of the brow and they soften towards the front of the brow to create a gentle faded look.

The Ombre is created by building up soft pixels (dots) with a fine needle. This technique heals to reveal natural results and lasts for up to three years providing the aftercare is carried out correctly. The colour will soften around 20% in the first 2 weeks of healing and then a top up will be carried out around 8 weeks after to make sure they are perfect.

Combo Brows


The Combo brow is a mixture of powder and hairstrokes, the brow starts with fine hairstrokes at the front and softly blends into an ombre brow throughout the arch and tail. 

This technique heals to reveal natural results and lasts for up to three years providing the aftercare is carried out correctly. The colour will soften around 20% in the first 2 weeks of healing and then a top up will be carried out around 8 weeks after to make sure they are perfect.

Top-up appointment


8 weeks after your initial appointment, if required.

After 5 years of perimenopause hair loss my eyebrows had almost completely fallen out. I found Linda online and we had a consultation. Linda explained all of the options available to me and how it would work. Linda was so knowledgeable, professional and understanding of my circumstances.With her informed advice we selected the right treatment, colour and size for the most natural look to replace what I had lost.Linda made the process so easy and explained what she was doing. We had a great chat along the way which really helped me to relax and just let Li da do her thing. I’m so pleased with the results and Linda’s great work. I will definitely be going back when the time comes.

I’ve got my eyebrows micro bladed by Linda.I was quite abrehensive to let somebody else have control over my eyebrows but Linda’s got a really great eye for how someone’s eyebrows should look to suit that person.I am a natural looking person and she matched my eyebrows carefully to suit me as well as listening to what I wanted.She was great at keeping me relaxed and talking me through crushing and she is really easy to talk to.

I highly recommend Linda! I had my brows done by someone else the first time I ever did it a few years ago and I wasn’t very happy, which really put me off trying again. I told Linda my concerns and she was so lovely, patient and reassuring and they turned out amazing! I am so happy with the results. I will definitely be a regular now 🙂

I had my second eye liner appointment with Linda last month and I have to say a huge THANK YOU to her. I have a scar caused by an operation on my eyelid which goes into my lash line and Linda worked her magic and after the healing process it's not noticeable anymore and my liner looks just awesome.She spent time explaining how she would pass over the area and explained the pain factors involved. We discussed colour and shape and she just made me feel comfortable as possible because she's placing a tattoo on my eyeline.Looking forward to coming back for my powder brows 😊

Linda is exceptionally informative, kind, considerate and thoughtful. Right from the initial consultation she took the time to explain everything, being honest about the procedure, pain that might be experienced and the initial couple of weeks after the treatment. During the procedure itself she was thoroughly professional and attentive to my wellbeing and reactions. Soothing, calming and dedicated to her skillful work, she managed effortlessly to combine the treatment with a gentle, reassuring conversation. Her aftercare is reassuring and rigorous.Microblading was definitely not an easy treatment, I found it a little painful at times, but others may not. Linda was reactive to my flitches, applied more numbing balm and was always honest and informative about the possibility of a touch of pain.It was absolutely worth it though. As a lady who literally had a few hairs as eyebrows and was sick of my eyebrow pencil, I love the difference. They look so natural, they look fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend Linda for this treatment. She ensures you enter the procedure fully informed, with a clear understanding of the pro's and con's of the procedure and a detailed guide to aftercare to get the best out of your treatment. Thanks Linda. X

Absolutely recommend Linda! I was super nervous and she explained the whole process and reassured me throughout. Very calming & professional, brows are stunning but really natural which I was worried they wouldn’t be. LOVE not having to draw them on everyday x

Powder Brows Guide

Understanding Different Brow Treatments

When it comes to enhancing your eyebrows, there are several semi-permanent brow treatments available. In this section, we’ll discuss three popular techniques: Powder Brows, Ombre Brows, and Combo Brows. 

Powder Brows 

Powder brows are a semi-permanent brow treatment that involves using a machine to deposit pigment in the skin, mimicking the appearance of makeup. The technique is ideal for those who prefer a soft, filled-in brow look. By layering the pigment, a gradient effect can be achieved, providing a natural but well-defined appearance. Powder brows are well-suited for all skin types, and they tend to last longer than other treatments, like microblading, which uses a hand tool to create hair-like strokes. 

Ombre Brows 

Ombre brows are similar to powder brows, but with a slightly different effect. This technique also uses a machine to deposit pigment, but the concentration is gradually lessened from the tail end of the brow towards the front, creating an ombre, or fading, effect. The result is a soft, natural-looking gradient that mimics the natural growth of your brow hairs. Ombre brows work well for those with sparse or light brows, as the pigmentation creates a fuller, more defined appearance [1]. 

Combo Brows 

Combo brows, also known as combination brows, combine two semi-permanent techniques: powder brows and microblading [2]. This treatment offers the best of both worlds: the natural, hair-like strokes of microblading and the filled-in look of powder brows. The combination of these techniques results in a more defined and filled-in appearance than microblading alone, but without the solid, dramatic look of the ombre powder technique. Combo brows can be customised according to your desired outcome, skin type, and individual preferences [3]. 


Each of these brow treatments offers unique benefits, so selecting the right one depends on your individual preferences, skin type, and desired outcome. Working with a skilled professional will ensure you receive the best possible advice and results for your specific needs. 

Exploring Permanent Makeup 

Permanent makeup treatments have gained popularity in recent years due to their ability to enhance facial features and simplify daily makeup routines. This section will discuss two types of permanent makeup treatments: Eyebrow Treatments and Cosmetic Eyeliner. 

Eyebrow Treatments 

Eyebrow treatments are a popular choice for those seeking a lasting solution to enhancing their brows. There are several techniques available, each catering to different preferences and desired outcomes: 

  • Microblading: This technique uses a handheld tool to create hair-like strokes, providing a natural result. Microblading is ideal for those with sparse brows or who prefer a subtle enhancement. 
  • Powder Brows: Utilising a tattoo machine, Powder Brows create a soft, filled-in appearance similar to the effect of eyebrow makeup. This treatment is suitable for those who desire a bolder, more defined look. 
  • Ombre Brows: These brows are created by gradually shading the pigment from light to dark, giving a natural yet striking appearance. Ombre Brows are perfect for those looking to balance bold and subtle features. 
  • Combo Brows: A combination of microblading and powder brows, Combo Brows offer the best of both worlds. The brows are initially microbladed, followed by shading with a tattoo machine. This technique provides a defined yet still natural look. 

Powder brows, also known as powder fill brows or shaded brows, involve creating a soft, powdered look by shading the entire brow with pigment. Combo brows, on the other hand, are a mixture of microblading and powder brow techniques, combining the natural look of microblading with the definition provided by shading. Ombre brows, similar to powder brows, create a shaded appearance but with a gradual change in colour from light at the front of the brow to dark at the tail, achieving a softer look. 



The microblading process begins with a thorough consultation. During this initial meeting, we will discuss various aspects such as your desired brow shape, colour and overall expectations. It is important to share any medical conditions, allergies or concerns so we can ensure a safe and effective procedure.

Mapping and Outline

Once the consultation is complete, we will will begin the final look at mapping and outlining the new brow shape. This step involves measuring your facial features and creating a symmetrical, customised design tailored to your unique face structure.

Eyebrow treatment Procedure

The final stage of the process is the treatment procedure itself. Utilising a machine and blade, the practitioner makes punctures in the skin, creating fine, mimicking soft hair strokes. These hair strokes are carefully etched into the upper layers of the skin, allowing for the semi-permanent pigment to be deposited. Multiple layers may be necessary to achieve the desired results.


Immediately After the Procedure

After the eyebrow treatment, it is important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best results. The immediate aftercare involves gentle cleaning and applying a protective ointment to the treated area.

  1. Cleaning: Use a damp sponge or washcloth to dab the area around the eyebrows gently with warm water and a mild soap. Avoid touching the brows themselves and make sure not to scrub or rub the area.

  2. Ointment: Apply a thin layer of ointment prescribed by your technician to keep the area moist and reduce the risk of infection. This is usually done multiple times a day for the first few days after the procedure.

Ongoing Aftercare

As your skin starts to heal, following these ongoing aftercare measures will help achieve the best results with least discomfort:

  • Tenderness and Itching: It’s normal for the treated area to feel tender and itchy during the healing process, which typically takes 25 to 30 days. Refrain from scratching or picking at the brows, as this can cause scarring or affect the pigment.

  • Flaking and Peeling: Your skin may begin to flake or peel during the healing process. Do not pick or pull the flakes; let them shed naturally.

  • Scabbing: Microblading may cause some scabbing around the treated area. Avoid picking or removing scabs, as doing so can affect the pigment and final results.

  • Avoid Swimming: Do not submerge your brows in water, including swimming pools, beaches, or baths, during the healing process.

  • Avoid Saunas: Stay away from saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs until the skin has fully healed, as exposure to steam and heat can affect the treated area. Source

Following these aftercare guidelines diligently can greatly contribute to achieving the best possible results from your microblading treatment.

Healing Process and Touch-Ups

The healing process after a microblading procedure can generally be broken down into a few stages. It is normal to experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness during the first few days. Scabs may also form on the eyebrows as the micro-wounds heal.

On day one, the eyebrows will appear darker than desired due to the fresh pigment. However, clients should be reassured that the colour will fade over time as the healing process continues. By days five to seven, the scabs and flakes on the eyebrows start to fall off, making way for new skin. It’s important not to touch or pick at the healing eyebrow area though, as doing so could interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

Throughout the healing period, which typically lasts 25 to 30 days, clients should follow the aftercare instructions provided above. This may include avoiding sun exposure, applying antibacterial ointments, and resisting the urge to touch or apply makeup on the brows.

After the initial healing process, clients should expect to have a touch-up or follow-up appointment. This first session is often scheduled six to eight weeks after the first microblading session. During the touch-up, the microblading technician will assess the healed results and make any necessary adjustments or enhancements to ensure a balanced and refined appearance. Touch-ups are crucial to achieving the best possible results and maintaining the appearance of the semi-permanent eyebrows.
