PERMANENT MAKEUP FOR MEN
It’s time to put the record straight with a resounding YES – permanent makeup is just as much for men as it is for women! Male grooming has grown exponentially over the last few years and our male counterparts are taking great pride in their appearance. Like us, they have their own hangups and insecurities, so why wouldn’t – or shouldn’t they – deserve the same opportunities to improve their features as women do? The fact that the word ‘makeup’ is so associated heavily with women can deter some men from even considering permanent makeup as a viable way to address their issues. However, as with the permanent eyebrow, eyeliner and lip treatments Pretty Permanent Artists perform every day, we’re seeing more and more men take advantage and walk through our salon doors asking for this treatment.
Ok, so they’re not asking for brightly coloured lips or a vibrant winged eyeliner, they’re turning to permanent makeup and the skills of our team for natural looking results that either enhance or correct their features.
At Pretty Permanent we use our expert skills and special considerations throughout the procedure to ensure the desired results are achieved. For example, during an eyebrow treatment they will consider the different texture of the skin (which is often tougher for males) and the shape, look and flow of hair strokes. The shape needs to be thicker and less defined and the hair strokes are made to look coarser. This is to replicate a more naturally masculine look, which is completely different from the delicate strokes which would most likely be used for a female brow.
