What to expect at your appointment

When you first arrive you will fill out your paperwork - make sure to have your photo ID

We will then sit down and have a consult discussing your brow concerns, desires, and expectations

Then we will map out the brow shape and make any adjustments

Numbing cream is then applied and will sit for 20 minutes

Then we start microblading!

The first pass creates a skeleton of the shape, the second adds some density to the body of the brow, and the third is just to touch up any spots that need it

If you’re getting the Combo Brow then after microblading a hand tool shader is used to gently tap in pigment behind the microbladed hairstrokes to create an illusion of density and help blend in the hairstrokes.

Last we discuss aftercare and you’re sent home with everything you need to care for your new brows!
