The consultation is done at the beginning of your appointment. At this time we will discuss your preferences and provide you with expert advice and recommendations if needed. The shape of your desired brow will be created and we will discuss color options.
Microblading is a manual method that uses a handheld tool to create hair-like strokes throughout the eyebrows in which pigment is deposited to the very top layer of the skin. This technique blends seamlessly with those with a lot of existing hair. The results are fuller, natural looking eyebrows. If one has sparse areas or very thin brows, they may add shading to this service. This technique is best for those with normal to dry skin types.
Ombre Powder is a technique that uses a machine to create small pixelated dots of pigment to fill in the eyebrows. This technique works well with all skin types and can be created as natural or as bold as you’d like. Don’t let the word “machine” scare you. This technique is very gentle on the skin and clients have even fallen asleep during their procedure!
Combo Brows is a technique that combines microblading and ombre powder. This is an advanced technique and can be performed multiple ways upon request or recommendation. Suitable for most skin types and can be created as natural or as bold as you’d like.
What Our Clients Are Saying
Frequently Asked Questions
The term “microblading” has taken mainstream and is believed that it is the most natural eyebrow technique which surprisingly, isn’t true. One major factor to consider when deciding which technique is best for you is determining your skin type. Those with oily skin should not get this technique because the oil in their skin will cause the “hair like strokes” to blur together over time, which defeats the purpose of getting microblading done. Clients suitable for this technique are normal to dry skin types and those with a lot of existing eyebrow hair.
Yes. Permanent Makeup is a two step process. The color of the pigment will fade anywhere from 30-40% lighter in appearance once healed. Each individuals body chemistry is different, therefore, we cannot determine how much pigment your body will retain. At your touch-up appointment we can make any minor adjustments to the shape, color, and size of your permanent makeup. A touch-up appointment will also ensure your permanent makeup lasts a period of time.
Eyebrows heal in 7-14 days . Please plan accordingly and refer to the pre and post care instructions.
Ombre powder is an eyebrow technique that creates a filled in look especially in areas that are sparse. It is done by creating tiny little pixels of color and depositing it into the skin. This technique is customized and buildable to look natural for those clients who prefer a soft powdered look and bold for those clients who prefer a makeup look. More clients are choosing a shaded look these days because it heals very natural, is less invasive, and lasts the longest, and is suitable for all skin types!
Immediately after your service your eyebrows will appear dark in appearance. As this is not the final result, it is important to know that your eyebrows will heal lighter once healed. During the healing process your brows will start to exfoliate off; this is because our skin naturally turns over creating new skin. In the following days your brows may appear very light until the skin pushes the pigment out to the top layer of the skin. You will see the true color of your brows at week 3 to 4 from your initial appointment.
