Is Microblading right for you?
this method is ideal for a natural look with some exciting brow hairs, not recommended for oily skin types
What is POWDER SHADING/OMBRE??
-a semi-permanent service using a machine that fills in brow area giving a appearance of a powder makeup application. Shading from light to dark, front to back of brow is ombre. Everyone is ideal for this brow method.
Can I get two methods combined?
YES! combining Microblading with Shading is the most requested as it is the best of both worlds, if you have no to little eyebrows this is the best option! This service is know as SHADE & BLADE, COMBO BROWS, HAIR STROKES & SHADING
Is it a tattoo?
Yes, any pigment that is placed under the skin with any device, is considered a tattoo.
Can I donate blood after microblading or permanent makeup? Both services are methods of tattooing and therefor you will need to wait 30 days until you can give blood, always consult with your physician.
Why is it necessary to have at least 2 sessions?
The 2nd appointment is the perfecting session for re-enforcing and making any adjustments with the shape, color, and strokes.
How long does it last?
Each person will retain pigment differently due to sun exposure, skin care routines, skin texture and type that the rage of time varies from 12months to 18 months.
Does it hurt?
The discomfort is relative as everyone has a different level of sensitivity. Numbing is applied for numbing before and during the process.
How will I look while healing?
First couple days you can have slight swelling, redness, and tenderness. The first week your brows will look dark and begin to flake. There is no down time, so you can assume your regular activities. It takes 30 days to see the final color, shape, and strokes.
How is the shape created?
By measuring the portion of features and bone structure with the use of string method, golden ratio, and a caliper ruler. The final shape that is mapped out, will be shown to you to ensure you are happy with the shape.

How early should I get my brows done before a special occasion such as a wedding, vacation, etc?
I would suggest you allow time for both sessions to be completed and healed, total of 16 weeks prior to your events.
What is the maintenance for Microblading vs Permanent Makeup?
There are different factors (sun exposure, medication, skin products or treatment, etc) for each person in when a touchup is needed, therefor the time frames are general. Microblading is approximately between 6-24 months, Permanent Makeup for the brows last approximately between 2-3 years.
