Semi-Permanent Makeup

At Hair to Ware, a leading UK-based hair clinic, we offer a range of hair solutions for all ages and conditions.

Among these are semi-permanent makeup for cosmetic treatments, as well as medical tattooing for body imperfections, including scarring tissue. Here’s a look at what these could mean for you.

What Is it?

This is a cosmetic procedure that injects pigmentation into the superficial skin layers, adding colour to areas such as the eyes, eyebrows, and lips, among others.

These two treatments are similar, in that pigmentation is being added to an area to enhance the overall aesthetic for an extended period of time.

Types of treatments

Semi-permanent makeup is a growing industry that provides individuals with a lasting makeup solution with incredibly natural effects.

Here are some of the more prominent types of treatments:

Procedure For Eyebrows

The eyebrows have long been a focal point for cosmetic attraction, from extremely thin to bushy to thinner again, the eyebrows have a major impact on the overall look of the face.

That is why this procedure for eyebrows – often through microblading – has become such a popular cosmetic treatment. Microblading has resulted in two popular techniques:

Microshading: This technique uses pin-like dots of pigmentation to attain a powdered eyebrow look.

Micro feathering: This is a variation of microblading where a different application technique is used to create an undone, natural, feathered brow.

Treatment for Lips

This treatment has various uses, whether it’s to re-define the area with a lip liner, to correct an irregular lip shade, to camouflage scars or ageing lines, to make the lips appear fuller, or just to enhance a natural lip shade.

  • Lip blushing or lip tinting:
    This is a simple wash or sheer of colour that is placed across the lips, either a slight enhancement of the natural lip colour or deeper shade.
  • Lip liner:
    For a subtle lip outline, or even a thicker, bolder look, then this procedure can be applied as a lip liner.

Eyeliner Treatment

To give the eye a bit of depth and definition, this treatment is a great treatment option.

The high-quality pigmentation means you don’t ever have to worry about smudged eyeliner during hot summer days, getting out of the shower or pool, or even shedding a few tears. The eyeliner is a fine line that can be applied to either the top or bottom eyelashes, giving a subtle yet impressive look.

Benefits of this procedure

If you’re still uncertain whether semi-permanent makeup is the right treatment for you, then here’s a look at some of the benefits associated with this particular cosmetic solution.

Cost Savings

The price of quality makeup can be substantial, and it is something you will have to spend every few weeks or months. Add to this the price of makeup remover, and the costs keep growing. Although the initial cost of the treatment might be a bit higher, you will be benefitting from the results for three to five years, saving you huge amounts in makeup purchases.


Once the treatment is done, there is no more need to wake up in the early hours to apply makeup before heading out to work or just generally face the day. There is also no need to finish the day, strenuously removing your makeup. You will save so much time by investing in this procedure, even if it’s just one treatment.


In addition to the time and cost savings associated with it, the fact that you don’t have to carry around touch-up makeup when you’re out and about, or worry about re-applying makeup after a swim or shower, makes life that much more convenient.

Skin Conditions treatment

The many additives in makeup products can cause skin reactions for many people, meaning they’re left with few alternatives. The high-quality pigmentation used in Hair to Ware semi-permanent makeup means no issues with allergies for users.


Whether it’s semi-permanent makeup or medical tattooing, the treatment is designed to enhance your self-esteem and boost confidence. It could be disguising scars, or simply enhancing your natural aesthetics, semi-permanent makeup is a great way to improve your personal outlook.


With age, our natural lustre can diminish, with skin tone fading, lips losing volume, and eyebrows losing density. With this treatment, you can achieve your previous youthful look, defining lips and eyebrows, with a plumper, healthier overall appearance.


No matter how careful you are, particularly when you’re in a rush, your makeup might not be quite as natural or symmetrical as you’d like. We’re not all artists! With this treatment, you can be assured our artists are providing you with a consistent, yet natural look every time.


One of the concerns we hear is that clients will tire of their look when opting for semi-permanent makeup. However, not only does the ‘natural’ look complement your tones, you can also change the look by blending in other colours for a special occasion.

Health and Safety

Our trained technicians are all specialists in the application process, following all regulations and using only the best quality equipment and pigmentation.

What to Expect After The Treatment?

Once the procedure is complete, we’ll give you a thorough run-through of all the necessary after-care treatment. But, to give you an idea, here’s a look at what to expect.


You will have to avoid extreme temperatures until the area has fully healed, which means no sunbathing, tanning beds, and saunas.

Avoid makeup:

For semi-permanent eyeliner, you will have to avoid wearing makeup for about a week or two to prevent infection.

Avoid touching:

You will need to avoid picking, itching, or rubbing the area to allow the colour to heal evenly.

Colour lighten:

The colour of the makeup will be much darker directly after the treatment, attaining its eventual colour after about a week or two.

Your Treatment Package

The semi-permanent makeup package includes a 30-minute consultation, the initial procedure, and an aftercare pack, as well as a refreshing colour boost, 4 to 6 weeks later.

This professional package means you can achieve permanent, perfect brows without the hassle of filling them in every day.
