Personally I dislike thick hairy eyebrows and find them a big turn off
If that's a reconstructive operation it might be worthy to bring them back to a natural look but don't over do it

They can look really natural if you do your research, don't get a Groupon deal or search for the cheapest option. I believe they do fade after a few years, so they aren't permanent. I bet after you do your research and find someone you can explain your situation and they would drop the price or do it for free. Generally a good artist will charge about $500 total after the consultation and touch ups.

Hey there, KayBee01! I 'reported' this post for you so the mods will be able to move it for you to the appropriate forum. I thought you were new, but realize you have been an RFD member since 2009! It's good you would post to the RFD'ers, generally you'll find they are a super good bunch!

I worked in the brow industry for over 25 years (waxing/shaping.) I did not do microblading, but have recently been researching it. Go to your local city groups on FB, ask around there, and VIEW photos of those people who do microblading. It CAN look natural but you have to go with someone who is great at it - this means getting the shading correct as well as the technique and appropriate 'feather strokes' needed.

In the meantime, grab some Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Brow Gel at Beauty Boutique.ca, etc... It's $$$ ($32) but is well worth it (and this is coming from a true RFD'er who loves saving money!) Of course, aim to buy it when Shoppers Optimum points are optimized, etc. etc. Lol! Check out Sephora as well, they carry it there. (3 free samples with every order, sigh!) I have light to med. brown hair naturally but the lightest shade that Benefit makes is perfect to fill out my somewhat overtweezed (80's gal, you know!) brows.

I'm sorry your brows didn't go through the growth you hoped for - and I really hope you are doing well health-wise!!!

Edited to add: I meant to tell you, once you have some links, etc. to someone you are interested in for microblading, please feel free to PM me the info. and I can take a peek too and give input if you want! Just today, in our city I was looking at 4 different microblading artists - and only 1/4 stood out to me as being really good.

Further edited: One more thing! It is always better to pick a slightly lighter shade than you think you need, (for either the Benefit product or, the actual microblading), rather than a shade too dark. Apparently, the same goes for hair colouring. My pet peeve today was seeing brows that were either too red OR too 'grey/ash' tone. (When looking at the microblading.) That, and leaving a square point where the brows start up. Or, leaving too thick of a front part of the brow, and not enough taper into the shape. UGH!

I was looking at photos today too and I thought the exact same thing about the square edge, that is not natural at all, but I guess that's what some people want

@jory29 Could you recommend some general brow shaping/grooming salons, or professionals in the GTA, as well?

This not about you or your preferences so no need to give the OP advice about what you find pleasing.

OP, wherever you go, please make sure the service provider is inspected by the local health unit.

Oh, I wish! I am out in the West though. If you ever want me to take a look at someone's work and provide feedback, pm a message if you want and I can give you my input, FWIW.

The OP was asking though, if microblading can look natural, or not, indicating a preference to obtain a more natural look. I don't think there was anything offputting about digger1's comments, and they even stated that it was a personal opinion, by using the word personally. 100% agree with you, everything needs to be thouroughly safe/sanitary and inspected at regular intervals. Excellent point!!

Natural looking and thick and hairy are not mutually exclusive though. So what if someone wanys thick and hairy eyebrows? To each their own, right? :) Besides, microblading isn't a service that gives the look of thick and hairy eyebrows.

In the GTA, look at permanentcosmetics.ca.
