MICROBLADING & MICROSHADING
Microblading and Microshading are two forms of eyebrow micropigmentation. Both treatments are ideal for people who have patchy, uneven, or nonexistent eyebrows due to over-plucking or medical conditions.
Microblading implants pigment into tiny etches in the skin to resemble hair strokes. On the appropriate skin type, this should blend seamlessly into existing eyebrow hair (if present), creating a soft and "wispy" look.
Microshading (aka Powder Brow) implants pigment strategically in a diffuse fashion, rather than mimicking hair strokes. The healed result is soft and powdery, and can range from being "barely-there" to bold and defined depending on the client's wishes.
Regardless of the technique used, our artists take a conservative approach to create a soft and understated look.
Two sessions are necessary to perfect the design, performed 6-12 weeks apart. If you have an existing brow tattoo, you are required to send clear, makeup-free photos for approval before setting an appointment.
A 20% booking fee is required to secure your appointment. The booking fee will be applied to the cost of your treatment and is non-refundable. In the event that you need to reschedule, please allow 48 hours advance notice so that your booking fee can be applied to the new appointment time.
Oily, thin, sun damaged, scarred, sensitive or mature skin will not retain tattooed hair strokes (Microblading) and may be better suited to a shaded powder technique (Microshading) at your artist's discretion.

On the day of your appointment, it's a good idea to minimize caffeine intake. Please wear your makeup as you normally would (or no makeup, if that's your style) so that we can get a feel for your aesthetic and the way you like your eyebrows.
