Microfeathering: Everything You Need to Know About the New Brow-Filling Technique

Now that everyone and their mother knows what microblading is, a more minimalist take on the brow trend is becoming popular. (I've lost count of the amount of times even the most random people in my life have asked me if they should get their brows microbladed.)
Microfeathering is like the no-makeup makeup version of the semipermanent brow tattoos, and celebrities like Mandy Moore are visiting Kristie Streicher at STRIIIKE, a beauty studio based in Beverly Hills, Cali., to get it done.
The biggest difference between microblading and microfeathering is surface area. Microblading usually involves tattooing over your whole brow area to create fullness and shape. People with alopecia or super-thin brows often get it done so they don't have to constantly draw on their brows. Microfeathering, on the other hand, is for those with naturally full brows. The name comes from the look Streicher created called the Feathered Brow. (Not to be confused with feather brows, of course.) She helps her clients have the most lush, bold but natural-looking brows in the game. For six to eight weeks, they must avoid all forms of hair removal on their brow area, including tweezing, waxing, and threading. Then, Streicher performs her magic. If there are any naturally sparse areas, that's where microfeathering comes in.
