However you may like your brows, highly arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are arguably your most important facial feature and can make or break your look. Brows play a huge role in shaping the face, giving you a more polished look. The difference can be life changing.
And what about when we go swimming? No one wants to get out of the pool with your brows smudged or completely off. You don’t want to accidentally wipe your face and your brows come off with the wipe. That’s the worst. And let’s not forget summer where your makeup can sometimes melt right off your face. I’m sure I’m no different than all the other women in the world wanting to look natural and put together even when I wake up, at the beach or the pool, or when I’m exercising. And that’s the beauty of microblading and why everyone is obsessing over it!
Ladies, & gentlemen I’d like to introduce you to microblading. Microblading is an awesome semi-permeant, extremely natural solution that delivers the most natural results. Unlike the sometimes Sharpie looking effects of permanent brow tattoos, microblading is more of an embroidery with strokes that look just like real hairs.
What is Microblading, and Why do I need it?
Would you like perfect eyebrows with little or no maintenance that lasts more than a year? Microblading is perfect for those who would like to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, and fill-in over plucked brows.

for OVER 1 YEAR! Doesn’t that make life a little sweeter?
Here’s a list of what Microblading can help with:
* Fill in sparse areas or "bald patches" in your brows
* Make brows look fuller and thicker
* Darken blonde or light brows
* Correction of old eyebrow tattoo
* Correct uneven brow shape to make them more symmetrical or
* Create a whole new brow if you have little or no hair
* Great for alopecia or trichotillomania sufferers!
Also, if your brows could use a little “lift” microblading can solve this too! Some clients naturally have brows that are turned down at the ends giving them an undesirable look. Reshaping the brows and Lifting the arch and tail can create a world of difference in your appearance. It opens the eye area making the eyes look bigger/brighter and makes clients look younger & happier!
First, I consult with the client about their wishes and evaluate the condition of their eyebrows. Then some initial drawings are made and corrected until the client is fully satisfied with the results. Pictures of the eyebrows are taken to check symmetry. Next, I match the color of the pigment with your hair color and skin tone. The entire process takes about 2 hours.
During the microblading process a special microblading needle is used to draw on individual strokes one by one. It's an extremely meticulous process in which I pay much attention to detail.
Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. Some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it's relatively painless. Some relate it to having their brows threaded.
The best part about the technique is that there is no downtime. Your new set of brows will be ready for a selfie immediately after the process. However, it is recommended to have a follow-up one month after your appointment. The healing process is different for everyone, and it takes about 30 days.
After a month, you would need to come in for a 45-minute to an hour touch-up. Once you have microblading completed it is SUPER low maintenance. Once healed, you can rub your brows, go swimming, exercise, etc. There's nothing to worry about. Easy like Sunday Morning!
No special care is required, except for a brief touch-up once a year. The experience will cost you anywhere between $375 and $800. But waking up every morning with perfect brows may be totally worth it!
