Thanks to timeless icons like Audrey and new-age babes like Cara, eyebrows are having a major moment. So what’s a girl to do when her brows are a little sparse (looking at you, Mona Lisa), unpredictable or shapeless? One of the fastest growing methods in cosmetic makeup – microblading – can help.
Microblading (a.k.a. eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking and feather touch) implants pigment under the skin using a series of very fine needles that produce thin, hair-like strokes to define and fill in your brows. The result is full, realistic brows, with each hair drawn individually.
The microblading technique requires two procedures: an initial appointment and a touch-up to perfect the look and shape of your new brows. You’ll enjoy your beautiful, well-shaped brows for 12-18 months. (factors like skin type, skin condition, and sun, chlorine and salt water exposure can affect your microbladed brows’ retention time.)

The initial procedure takes about 2 hours, where we discuss your desired brow shape, choose a color and draw the initial outline for you to approve. While faces are not perfectly symmetrical, we’ll create as much symmetry as possible. After you’ve approved your brow shape and symmetry, we trace your brow shape with a disposable microblading hand tool and apply semi-permanent pigment. Please note the tool is used by hand and is not a machine.
The touch-up procedure takes approximately 1 hour scheduled between 5 and 10 weeks from your initial appointment. Touch-up procedures scheduled after 10 weeks will incur an additional fee as outlined in our schedule.
For optimal results, it is imperative you complete the touch-up procedure. Your brow color will fade significantly within 4 weeks as the skin heals, peels and fades, and the touch-up fixes any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes and color tones.

PLEASE NOTE: Microblading results in a very natural and fuller-looking brow. While your brows will initially appear darker, they will fade significantly over a two-week period. It is absolutely crucial to complete the touch up procedure. It is also difficult to predict how well your skin will retain the pigment. Due to varying factors, we cannot guarantee your microblading results.
