Powder Brows are the new cosmetic trend for deceptively real and beautifully full eyebrows. Get all the info on the permanent make-up technique here.
What are Powder Brows?
Full and even eyebrows are very popular. But what to do if your natural brows just don’t have the density and volume you want? If you don’t want to keep redrawing your eyebrows, you can make your dream of full brows come true with the help of permanent make-up. Powder brows are currently particularly popular because a special application technique creates a very natural look.
Powder Brows and Microblading – what is the difference?
Just like Microblading, Powder Brows permanently apply color under the skin. However, the procedures used to achieve this are different. “Microblading” uses a small knife, with the help of which the color is scratched into the skin. Powder Brows, on the other hand, are stung with a tattoo machine,” explains Patrizia Wagner, founder of the Urban Spa studio chain in Hamburg. “The technique creates a very light beautiful shadow, as if you had powdered the eyebrows,” the cosmetics expert continues.
For Powder Brows, two different colors are often used to create a color gradient. That is why this type of eyebrow modeling is also called “Ombré Brows”. Immediately after the treatment, the color is still very noticeable, but this subsides. The coloring gradually becomes more natural.
When asked if Powder Brows stitching is painful, Patrizia Wagner explains, “In my estimation, Powder Brows stitching is more comfortable than a Microblading treatment.”

Durability: How long do Powder Brows last?
On average, painted-on eyebrows can last up to a year and a half. “After a year, a small touch-up is usually recommended,” says the expert.
This way, the color stays nice and fresh. However, it is not possible to make a completely accurate prediction for the durability of Powder Brows. How long the permanent makeup will remain visible on your skin depends primarily on how quickly your skin renews itself. The younger the skin, the faster it regenerates.
How much do Powder Brows cost?
Of course, the prices for the treatment differ depending on the provider. For example, at the Urban Spa in Hamburg, it costs 350 euros. Usually, the prices are similar to those of a conventional microblading treatment. This can range from 300 to 600 euros, depending on the studio and the effort involved.
