Microblading, Shading, Ombré, and Digital Brows are fabulous treatments for enhancing your brows, whether you have plenty of hair or none at all.

Microblading vs Shading vs Ombré vs Combo Eyebrows?

Microblading, Shading, Ombré, and Combo Eyebrows are forms of Permanent Makeup, but use different methods to implant the pigment into the skin.


With microblading, we manually use a super fine blade to create cuts into the skin which look like hairstrokes.

Shading is always done in combination with microblading (also called Microshading) and adds a thin dark shade to your microbladed eyebrows. 


For Ombré, we use an electronically powered machine and a needle, which is more similar to a conventional tattoo (but much less aggressive and the pigment is not implanted as deeply). It is similar to shading but stronger in color. 


Using a combination of both ombré and microblading, we can achieve a wider range of effects such as shading, ombré and also super natural hairstrokes. 

This is my 5th year of having my eyebrows tattooed at Victoria Beauty Nairobi, all the therapists are fantastic, highly skilled and professional. I receive compliments on my eyebrows all the time, they look so natural and last over a year.

When Microblading eyebrows, we manually use a super fine blade to create cuts into the skin which mimic the appearance of natural hairstrokes. The microblading technique was first discovered thousands of years ago using a super fine microblade to etch lines into the skin that flow in the same direction as your own hairs, this is the ideal brow look for those who want an extra natural and soft effect with the pigment being placed into a higher layer of the skin.


Consult with your technician beforehand, as microblading isn’t suitable for all skin types and you may be better off with the Ombré brows. 


Microblading and Shading

If you love the look of filled-in brows, this is for you. When using Microblading & Shading on eyebrows (also called microshading), the microshading artist creates small pin-point dots on the brow area repetitively. Microshading is great for those with sensitive and oily skin.



If you are looking for something a little more striking or usually fill your brows in every day with conventional makeup, Ombré Brows are a great choice. We can achieve a wider range of effects with Ombré such as shading and supernatural hair strokes.


For Ombré Brows our Artists use a specialised shading technique to create a mist of colour across the full brow giving a powdery finish. We gradually build up colour from the front of the brow, with more colour density towards the tail – creating a gradient effect. Always bespoke, this effect can be tailored to you and made as bold or as subtle as you desire!  


Combo Eyebrows

Combo Eyebrows are one of Victoria Beauty most requested treatments. Combining different hairstroke and shading techniques to create beautiful hybrid brows that are a little more defined and subtle than Ombré or Microbladed Brows.


When you come for your treatment we can discuss with you what you want to achieve and use our expertise to determine which will be the best technique for you.
