What’s next in permanent makeup? Pros offer these predictions.
There’s a technique in Russia that uses technology like a coil machine, and it allows you to create the hair-like strokes without slicing into the skin. The results can last two to three years. I believe we’ll see advancements like this: Microblading techniques that allow you to get even more longevity out of the service.” —Lynn La Palermo, Occhi’ Lash & Brow Studio
The permanent makeup market is constantly evolving. In the near future, I believe there will be newer and better methods of creating even more realistic-looking eyebrows and eyeliners. Better quality needles and pigments will make our work easier, and will allow us to deliver superior results to our clients.” — Sandra Plasencia, Chicago Permanent Makeup Academy
Even though the technique of ombré shading has already been introduced and is being offered by many technicians, it’s the next big thing in permanent makeup/enhancements.” —Terry Tribble, Houston Wellness Boutique
