Microbladed brows tend to be the most natural looking style. These brows are achieved by using a fine handheld needle dipped in pigment. This needle is then pulled across the skin to create the illusion of eyebrow hair. This technique heals best on dry skin And lasts 1-2 years before needing a touch up.
Powder brows provide a more filled in look. These brows are achieved via a single needle tattoo pen. The pigment is implanted only on the top layer of skin. This results in brows that appear to be filled in with makeup or “powder”. Powder brows are suitable for ALL skin types and last 2-3 years before needing a touch up.
Combo brows are a combination between the microblading and powder technique. We use microblading towards the front of the brow which fades into powder towards the end of the brow. This gives a natural looking front that fades into a sharper tail. This is my personal favorite technique! Combo brows are suitable for all skin types and can last 2-3 years before needing a touch up.
Unfortunately permanent makeup is not suitable for everyone. Please make sure that none of the following apply to you prior to booking.

Topical numbing cream is applied to the skin before tattooing begins. Pain tolerances vary greatly between people. Some clients fall asleep during the procedure while others state more discomfort. Many people liken the pain to a cat scratch. I reapply the numbing cream throughout the appointment to make the experience as painless as possible.
Yes! Before the tattooing begins we always map out the brows first. Your face is measured to find a brow shape that suits your features best. Everyone’s face is different so you will be shown a few options for shapes that fit YOUR face. Once both the client and the artist are happy with the shape, the numbing process Begins.
The whole process takes about 2 hours. The consultation and mapping can take an hour and the tattooing itself usually takes 45min to an hour.
6 week touch ups are crucial for good healed results. Following your first brow appointment, you will be scheduled for a 6 week touch up. At this touch up your brows will be mapped, numbed and tattooed again. This process is repeated because of the way our body heals the skin. After the first 6 weeks a lot of pigment in the skin is lost and the brows lighten 40%. This appointment allows the artist to darken the brows as well as adjust the shape and style.
These touch ups can be done anywhere from 9 months to 2 years after the 6 week touch up. These are maintenance touch ups. They freshen the color of the brows and typically are done yearly.
