Microblading is a form of permanent makeup that creates natural, beautiful eyebrows manually with a handheld microblade. It’s perfect for people who have overplucked or those who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows.

Technically, microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. However, unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists apply each hairstroke with a handheld microblade. This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hairstroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client’s existing brow hair. 

This procedure can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the client and eyebrow shaping. Majority of clients require 2 sessions to have their desired brows. Touch up appointments can be made 2 to 3 months after your first initial visit.

Microblading is NOT recommended for cover-ups/correction work. Microblading is best suited for those who have normal to dry skin and LOTS of brow hairs. Oily skin and aging/thin skin is not recommended as results will not heal, or look as natural. If this is you, you would be a better candidate for Ombré Powder, Combination, Microshading, 3D Nano Hairstrokes.

  • Pregnant or Nursing
  • Diabetic
  • Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
  • Viral infections (diseases such as Shingles, psoriasis or eczema on the area of treatment)

  • If you have extremely oily skin, the microblading technique is NOT ideal for you as the oil produced will cause your 'hair strokes' to heal much softer with a powder look rather than a defined stroke.
  • If you have an old existing brow tattoo.
