Microblading is a modern form of permanent cosmetics in which the specialist uses a tool with very fine blades to deposit pigment into the epidermis to manually create hyper-realistic hair strokes. Thin eyebrows can be made to look fuller and shaplier.
Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair you currently have. Microblading can last 1-2 years depending on skin type and aftercare compliance.
People suffering from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows.
Recommended for clients with fine brow hairs and dry to normal skin type.
This form of eyebrow style does not include any hair like strokes that can mimic the look of natural brow hair. Instead this technique requires complete shading of the brow, from the head to the tail. The ombre/powder brow is compared to brows when filled in with makeup. The head starts out light and gradually gets darker all the way to the end of the tail. This style is for those looking for a fierce and sharp look.
Recommended for clients with all skin types.
This style of brow combines microblading and shading all in one. Microblading to create hair like strokes and added shading for depth. Perfect for a super natural, yet more profound style of brow.
Recommended for clients with dry to normal skin type.

Pigments used for the eyebrows have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color. If your eyebrow hair are still present, the new pigments will blend perfectly together. Initially, the brows will appear darker but will fade over a two week period.
It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well your skin will retain the pigment.
This is a two step procedure. Second procedure is done 4-8 weeks after the initial appointment.
After taking a before photo, the brow, eyeliner and/or lip design is drawn with a pencil, to give client an idea of shape and form.
* Please note that majority of faces are not completely symmetrical. Eyebrows are not meant to be identical as it is impossible to attain this look even with natural brow hair.

Once both client and artist have agreed on a final shape (ultimately it is the client's decision but the artist will make recommendations based on their knowledge of what suits her aesthetically.
We then decide on a color. Topical anesthetic is then applied to ensure comfort.
It takes up to 10 days for the outer layer to heal. In that time any redness will fade and the initial darkness of the eyebrows, eyeliner and/or lip color will begin to lighten. Minor swelling and irritation is normal. It is normal for the color to flake off and disappeared as new color moves forward again during healing process which can fully take up to four weeks.
It is most likely. Within the first two weeks of the initial procedure the color fades as much as 30-40%. Your procedure may look patchy and uneven as the skin heals, drys out, sheds and color moves forward. Your skin may or may not retain the ink. Everyone does heal differently and therefore the outcome varies.
After this period, typically between 4-8 weeks, a touch up is done.
Touch up session, also allows any changes and adjustments to be made to assure the client's satisfaction.
The touch up procedure is less time consuming than the initial one.
Very minimal to none.
