You have to be 18 years of age.

Usually 2-2.5 hours. In that appointment is the consultation, brow design, microblading, and aftercare discussion.

About a year give or take on skin type. Normal or drier skin typically lasts a little longer than oily skin. Oily skin may not last as long and may require more touch ups. Also, if you expose yourself to sun often, it may fade quicker.

No. Keep your hair so we can work with it.

Yes. The procedure is performed with proper sanitation and sterilization, along with the following guidelines:

  • Pre-sterilized and disposable pigment cups
  • Pre-sterilized and disposable needles and hand tool, opened in front of clients
  • New gloves for each client and changed when needed
  • Barrier film on necessary surfaces
  • Distilled water is used
  • New cotton rounds, micro-brushes, and disposable cups
  • Hospital grade disinfectant wipes for all surfaces and instruments

Microblading is the form of semi-permanent makeup that gives the illusion of real hair like strokes. It is done with a manual hand tool where pigment is inserted into the skin. Very crisp strokes are created giving the most natural results!

If you are simply unhappy with your eyebrows or if you suffer from conditions that cause hair loss microblading is absolutely for you. No more spending time in the mirror each morning trying to make your brows perfect.

It depends on your pain tolerance but most have said on a sale of 1-10 its about a 2 or 3. I’ve been told it feels like tweezing two hairs at once or if you’ve had threading done I’ve heard it’s similar to that.

I include the first appointment and touch up for a total of $350. This is a very great price in this industry as well as for my work and the value I deliver!

Microblading works best if you have a normal to dry skin type. If you have oily skin and large pores microblading may not last as long for you. We want to be honest up front.
