Am I a candidate for microblading or permanent brows?
Permanent brows re great for anyone who has no brows, thinning brows or is simply tired of filling in their brows every day. Please refer to the list on the right for contraindications (if viewing on mobile, it will be at the bottom of the page)

How long does the procedure take?
Appointments average around two and a half hours. This allows time for paperwork, consultation, brow mapping, pigment selection and the procedure itself. They may be shorter or longer depending on the current state of your brows and your desired look. However long it takes to have you leaving happy! 🙂

Does it hurt?
Pretty much all of my clients say it is not nearly as bad as they expected. It is a form of tattooing, so there is discomfort associated with the procedure. A lot of clients are able to fall asleep and say it is quite relaxing! Numbing can be provided before and during the procedure to keep pain at a minimum.

How long is the recovery time?
There is no immediate downtime after the procedure, though you will need to follow aftercare instructions for two weeks. Your brows will go through a few phases including darkness, lightness and flaking while healing. Techniques that involve shading (shading, combo brows, ombre brows) tend to have more intense flaking.

How long will my brows last?
This is different for everyone. The pigment may never fade out completely but will get lighter over time. Your skin type, lifestyle and many other factors can affect how quickly your brows begin to fade. It is recommended to get a yearly touchup to maintain the color and shape.

How do you choose a shape?
We will map your brows out according to your face shape and proportions. We’ll talk about your preferences and I’ll draw a shape that I think is a good fit. We can adjust the shape until it looks just right for you.

How do you choose the right brow color?
We will select the perfect pigment for your brows based on your current brow color, hair color, skin tone, and desired results. You will always get to approve the color before beginning! Keep in mind, your brows will usually heal a bit lighter than they look immediately after the procedure.

Can I have this procedure done while I’m pregnant?
You may not have microblading done while you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Will I still have to keep up with waxing, tweezing, threading, etc?
Yes, hair will continue to grow on your brows as it did before your brow procedure.

What is the total cost for new brows?
The cost for all new brow appointment is $550. This is the same for everyone and is not dependent on how much work does or doesn’t need to be done. This includes two sessions; the first appointment and the perfecting session.

Is the deposit additional?
No, the deposit is deducted from the total amount of the service. The remainder will be due at your appointment.

Do you offer financing?
When booking your appointment, choose to pay in full instead of the deposit only (top button). Log into your PayPal account or create a new one. You will see a link to apply for PayPal Credit when completing your purchase. PayPal Credit offers no payments and no interest if paid in full in 6 months. (Subject to credit approval)
