Ever wonder how microbladers are able to get symmetric brows in the right size and shape? While there’s a lot of art to that answer, we have to give credit to our brow rulers. A proper brow ruler allows us to create the exact brow shape faster and more precise than if we were only doing it by hand.
I have used two brow rules and I want to give you a little information on both because some artists will prefer one over the other for different reasons. Today we’re going to compare one ruler from Amazon and the other from Jen Boyd Ink.
How are the brow rulers laid out?
The brow ruler I ordered from Amazon is what I started out using and it works well, but I would find myself getting irritated with a few things. I really didn’t like how the middle of the Brow ruler went in between the brows because if I want to change the height of anything, I makes it difficult.
I also really do not like how close together each of the measurement lines are. They lack numbers or anything identifying so I would need triple check the lines land the same on each side. I do not like how each side of the brow ruler rounds around the brow.
The nice thing about the brow rulers from Amazon is that the adhesive doesn’t stick and pull the hair. The ruler is also clear which is really nice because I can see the lines I have created underneath.
The Brow ruler from Jen Boyd ink is straight across, which is a plus for me. This makes it a lot easier to parallel the horizontal lines created on the face. Another major plus about this brow ruler is that it has sections for the head, arch, and tail, telling you about where they should lay. The measuring lines on the ruler are also a bit more spread out than the ruler from Amazon and this makes them easier to count.
The brow ruler is colored blue, which doesn’t bother me, but it is a stickier than the other ruler and it can sometimes pull the baby hairs around the client’s face.
How are the brow rulers Packaged?
The Jen Boyd ink puts 14 rulers on one sheet and sells them in sets of two. I like this a lot because I think it is a little bit more environmentally friendly. There is less packaging, so less waste.
The brow rulers from amazon are sold in sets of 100 and they are all stacked.
How much are brow rulers?
Jen Boyd sells her rulers for $14, so that’s 50 cents for each ruler, a really good deal considering they are custom made and I haven’t seen any other ruler that is labeled in the same way. Using these brow rulers really does speed up my process time because it’s easier to see where I marked each line to match the other side.
The Amazon ruler is a variation of the tradition brow ruler and you can’t go wrong with it. It is 10.99 for 100 rulers, so that is about 11 cents for each ruler.
There is not a huge price difference, so it really depends on your preference and what you think will suit your needs more! You can’t go wrong with either.
