Microblading is the new lash extension -- everyone's doing it. Those perfect brows you're seeing on Instagram aren't the result of brain surgeon-steady hands applying gel, they're the work of artists tattooing them onto faces. And yes, let's be clear: microblading is absolutely a tattoo process. They're placing ink under your skin, that's the very definition of tattooing, so if you're consulting with someone who tells you otherwise: R-U-N away.
My own hair is short and curly. I haven't had hair past my shoulders for about 20 years. The idea of having Disney princess hair was enchanting but I knew little about the process. How exactly are the extensions attached? How long does it take? How much does it cost? How long do extensions last? Time to do my research!
India is obsessed with skin colour. India's skin bleaching business racks in over 450 million a year! Fair & Lovely, a skin whitening brand that launched in the seventies is still one of the more profitable brands under Unilever's portfolio. In fact, it's the largest skin whitening cream in the world. The Indian community believes the paler you are, the more beautiful you are. And this is where things get confusing.
