Permanent Makeup For The Brows

Our technique is so gentle that it’s almost painless! In fact, it is very common for busy moms to fall asleep during the treatment. Topical anesthetic may be applied to ensure that you are comfortable.

Brows typically take 2-3 hours.

Each individual is different however brows can last 1-3 years or more before needing a color boost.

Permanent Makeup is typically a two step process that requires two sessions to complete your desired look while  very few people will only need one session. Color Boosts are recommended every 1-3 years to refresh their look.

It’s extremely important to do your research when searching for a permanent makeup artist. You want to make sure the artist is licensed and insured and you want to take a deep dive into their portfolio. Every artist has their own technique and you want to make sure that their style compliments the look that you are trying to achieve.

You must refrain from sweating and working out for about 7-10 days or until fully healed.

There are a few things you must avoid before your treatment such as avoid alcohol, caffeine, energy drinks, and green smoothies 24hrs before. Not following these instructions may result in less than desirable results and will cause bleeding making it difficult for your artist to work. For a full list of precare instructions please visit the precare page on our website.

Microblading is best for those with normal/dry skin types and those who have a good amount of existing eyebrow hair. This service is not recommended for those with oily skin. Other options are available for this skin type.

Combo brows are a combination of hair strokes and ombré/powder shading. This technique is great for those who have sparse areas on their brows that need to be filled in while still having the hair stroke look at the fronts.

Powder Brows creates tiny pixelated dots of pigment to fill in your eyebrow shape. This technique can give you soft natural results or a filled in look as if you were to use a brow pencil or a shadow to do your brows.

Ombré means the fronts of the brows will be lighter and the body and tail of the brows will be darker.

We have a thorough consultation during your appointment to discuss what technique is best for you based on your preferences and current condition of your brows. In person consultations are available upon request.

Pigment choice will be based on factors such as hair color, skin undertones, and personal preference.

A color correction is when the brows are too cool or too warm in appearance and the color needs to be neutralized. For example, if the brows present colors such as red, grey, blue, green, or purple a color correction will be needed.

To inquire please send photos of your bare brows in good lighting to 

Those with existing work must get approval before scheduling an appointment.
