27.05.2024 - Maria Agustin

Are you a Brow Professional looking for ways to offer your clients the best of both worlds when it comes to semi-permanent and permanent makeup (PMU) brow treatments? While some clients may be ready to dive into the world of permanent makeup, others might be hesitant to commit to something long-lasting. In this blog post, we will discover how Brow Henna and Liquid Dye can mimic the look of Ombré and Powder Brows, offering a great alternative for clients who want a temporary taste of permanent makeup. Let's dive in!

What is a Semi-permanent brow treatment?

Semi-permanent brow treatments are a great option for clients who want to achieve beautiful, natural-looking brows without the long-term commitment of permanent makeup. These treatments include Brow Henna and Liquid Dye, both of which offer temporary results that can last for weeks.

Brow Henna is a plant-based dye that stains both the brow hairs and the skin beneath, creating a fuller and more defined brow look for up to 6 weeks on the brow hairs. It is one of the most favorite brow treatments ever! Liquid Dye works very similarly, providing vibrant color that lasts up to 11 days on the skin and 6 weeks on brow hairs. Our Liquid Dye is nourishing and protecting brow hairs, as it is infused with Keratin. It is definitely a game-changer in the brow industry!

What is a Permanent Makeup (PMU) brow treatment?

Permanent Makeup (PMU) Brow Treatments, like Powder and Ombré Brows, offer long-lasting results that can keep your clients looking fabulous for years! These methods use specialized Brow Pigments to create beautiful and flawless brows that last.

Powder Brows create a soft, powdery finish, mimicking the look of filled-in brows. This technique provides a natural and well-defined brow look, perfect for clients who want their brows to look fuller and more polished.

Ombré Brows, on the other hand, blend lighter shades at the front of the brows with darker tones towards the tail, creating a seamless, gradient effect. This gives the brows a soft and multidimensional look that enhances any face shape. Clients all around the world love this PMU treatment!

If you're ready to explore the world of PMU, we collaborated with Perma Blend to bring you the best of Brow Pigments in the newest Capsule Collection, the Supercilium x Perma Blend Brow Pigments Kit! This collaboration brings you four versatile Brow Pigments, carefully crafted for all fellow and aspiring PMU artists to achieve stunning results with their clients! This kit has all the shades you need to create stunning brows that will last for years.

Differences between semi-permanent and PMU

Now when you are familiar with both, let's breakdown the differences between semi-permanent and permanent brow treatments:

Semi-permanent vs PMU

Why offer both PMU and semi-permanent treatments?

Have you ever thought about why many Brow Artists offer both PMU and semi-permanent treatments? Well, it's because each client has different preferences and needs. By offering both options, Brow Artists can provide their clients with the best possible results.

Chloé, a PMU artist from Centerfold PMU and Supercilium trainer, believes that offering both Henna Brows and PMU is really great for clients:

"Henna brows and PMU go hand in hand! It's so beneficial to have your clients experience the shape and color of Henna Brows before committing to a more permanent option of PMU brows. It's very helpful for new artists to begin their PMU career with henna brows so they can build skill in shaping and color matching clients. Henna brows have a much more approachable price point, making it easy for clients to 'try' their new brow look before selecting a larger, more permanent style!"

By offering both PMU and semi-permanent options, Brow Artists can expand their skills and provide clients with a more personalized brow experience!

Make your services affordable

Adding both semi-permanent and permanent brow treatments to your services isn't just about giving more options – it's also about meeting the practical and financial needs of your clients, especially in today's economic climate. We all feel the pinch of increasing prices everywhere. Permanent brow treatments can be a big investment for a lot of people. While it can be too much for them to pay for a PMU treatment or touch-up, a monthly session for a lower amount is something they sometimes can afford.

By providing affordable monthly sessions for semi-permanent brow treatments, you give your clients the flexibility to achieve stunning brows without breaking the bank. This not only makes high-quality brow enhancements accessible to a wider audience but also ensures a steadier flow of income for PMU brow professionals. So, whether it's Brow Henna, Brow Lamination, or Liquid Dye, integrating semi-permanent options into your offerings is a thoughtful move that benefits both your clients and your business in the long run.

Mimic the PMU brow look with Brow Henna and Liquid Dye

Did you know that semi-permanent treatments like Brow Henna and Liquid Dye can help your clients experience the magic of PMU without making a lifelong commitment? With these treatments, you can create amazing brow looks that closely mimic the effects of Powder and Ombré brows, but with the flexibility to change things up later on!

Brow Henna and Liquid Dye can stain both the hair and skin, offering a well-defined and full look that your clients will love and give them a better idea of how they would look with PMU brows.

This is a fantastic way for clients to experiment with different shapes and colors until they find their perfect brow style. It is important to build trust with your clients if they are hesitant to try PMU. That's why we love how these two different worlds complement each other: semi-permanent treatments provide the perfect taste of PMU results while still leaving room for adjustments and changes. Give your clients the best of both worlds and watch their brows come to life!

PMU and Brow Lamination

PMU brows can last for a few years, which means that client retention is generally much longer. However, if you'd like to encourage your clients to return to you more frequently, you can add Brow Lamination to your services!

Brow Lamination can be performed after PMU, but there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure that your client's skin and brow hair stay healthy. Brow Lamination can add volume and definition to PMU-treated brows, making them look even better and more polished. Follow these simple and easy-to-follow instructions to perform Brow Lamination after PMU:

  1. Make sure the PMU-treated brows have fully healed.
  2. Discuss the desired brow shape and style with your client.
  3. Cleanse the brows to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup with Pro Cleanser.
  4. Apply Relaxing Solution to the brows and let it sit for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Apply The Laminate to the brows and let it sit for 5-9 minutes.
  6. Apply Nourishing Elixir to moisturize the brow hairs.
  7. Provide the client with aftercare instructions.

By following these simple steps, you can perform brow lamination after PMU with confidence, and offer your clients a stunning combination of both semi-permanent and permanent brow treatments. All you need for Brow Lamination is in our Brow Lamination Starter Kit!

Mimic the Nano Brows look

Brow Lamination can also help your clients visualize how Nano Brows might look on their faces. This is because Brow Lamination mimics the look of Nano Brows, where the brow hairs are carefully styled and set in place to create a fuller, more defined appearance.

Offer the best of both brow worlds

Remember that offering both semi-permanent and permanent treatments can open up endless opportunities for creativity and satisfying your clients. By combining the flexibility of semi-permanent options with the longevity of permanent solutions, you can help your clients feel confident about exploring their brow dreams. Whether it's using Brow Henna, Liquid Dye, or Brow Lamination to achieve the perfect PMU look, the possibilities are truly limitless and exciting!

So, keep practicing and trying new techniques. Your clients will love you for it, and your own brow journey will be all the more rewarding! Wanna become a PMU professional? Read our newest blog post about why PMU is the next step in your career- this is your sign to SHINE!
