what to expect at your appointment
Step 1: Consultation
Our artist go through a thorough consultation before starting the microblading appointment. We believe the consultation is the most important part. During the consultation, we ask clients to show us any photos they like, don’t like and/or how they normally draw on their eyebrows to get an idea of the client’s unique style.
STEP 2: DESIGN
Our artist will then measure all the points of the client’s face with a ruler to ensure symmetry and precision. Once our artist finds what she needs to make a perfect pair of eyebrows, she begins designing based on the client’s natural eyebrow hair and their desired look. This is all done with a pencil first to ensure that the shape can be adjusted, if needed, before we start. Once our client approves the shape drawn, a color is selected among the artist and client. During the design process the client is in control the entire time, as artist we will never continue until you love the design, color and all your questions have been answered.
STEP 3: NUMBING
We want to ensure your utmost comfort so we apply a topical numbing cream for 15 minutes before we start microblading. Numbing is applied throughout the procedure to ensure the utmost comfort.
STEP 4: MICROBLADING
Only after the client has approved the shape, color and the numbing is completed, then we proceed with microblading. This is when the magic happens! Pigment is then implanted into the skin in a form of natural hair strokes to give it the illusion of real fine hair. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction so we always make sure you walk out the door happy and loving your new brows! If your nervous about microblading, don’t worry! At your first appointment our artist are super conservative when it comes to your brows because we can always add more thickness or color at your perfecting appointment in 6 weeks. Each client will come back in 6 weeks for an included touch up appointment to perfect their microbladed brows and make any adjustments needed.
frequently asked questions
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Natural Hair Stroke Microblading is a form of a semi-permanent makeup. The ink enters the epidermis, as apposed to traditional tattoos, which penetrate deeper in the skin. Precise lines are made in the brows to mimic natural hair strokes. This technique creates a brow that is fuller and perfectly shaped. Microblading is a two-appointment process, your initial appointment and then an included touch up appointment in 6 weeks. Pricing includes both appointments, as well as eyebrow threading and shaping during each appointment.
Why is there a 6 week touch up?
Microblading is a multisession process, meaning, touch ups are necessary. This session is done 6 weeks after the initial procedure. At this session, our client and artist will go over any concerns they may have had during the healing, fill in any areas that may have faded or simply go thicker or darker than the first time! We go conservative on the first session to ensure the client is satisfied and adding more at the touch up is no problem.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND COMBO BROWS?
Involves making tiny hair-like strokes in the eyebrows with a hand tool and ink; resulting in an eyebrow tattoo that looks like real hair strokes.
it’s the most subtle and most natural looking.
Typically fades the fastest.
Better option for people with dry and/or normal skin.
Not the best technique for people with extremely oily skin or people who are prone to bleeding.
Combo brows is simply microblading with shading.
This technique blends both hair-like strokes and shading into one blended outcome. First, microblading is done. Then, a tiny pen-like machine is used to provide a soft, diluted version of color to fill the space between strokes.
This makes the brow look fuller and slightly more pigmented than what can be achieved by just microblading.
Looks like hair strokes but with a lot more coverage.
Lasts longer than microblading alone.
Best option for those with little to no hair, or large holes in their natural brows.
Better option for people with oily skin.
DO I NEED A CONSULTATION FIRST?
We offer a FREE over the phone no obligation consultation for all of our permanent makeup services. So give us a call today at 270.283.8688
A consultation prior to your appointment is not required because your appointment includes a thorough consultation in which we discuss your brows, including the best brow shape for you and the color that is best for your complexion. As a client, we want you to know you are in control through every step of the design process. However, if you would like to book a consultation you totally can, click here.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE ?
Do you want perfect and natural looking brows all day everyday? If you answered yes then you are a perfect candidate!
However, if you are currently pregnant or nursing, have a history of keloid scarring, have you used Accutane within the last year, and if you have a previous eyebrow tattoo then unfortunately, you are not a good candidate.
If you have a previous eyebrow tattoo that you don’t love do not worry! We offer tattoo removal for clients wishing to have one of our artist fix their brows. Click here to book tattoo removal.
DO I NEED TO SHAVE OR WAX MY BROWS FIRST?
No! It is better to let your eyebrows grow out 3-4 weeks before your appointment so we can see your natural brow shape. Your brows will be threaded and shaped during the design process.
DOES MICROBLADING HURT?
Everyone is different therefore pain tolerance varies by client. Most clients describe the pain level as minimal and find tweezing and threading more uncomfortable. We use the best local anesthetic cream available to minimize discomfort. Most clients rate the pain level a 2 or 3 out of 10.
HOW LONG WILL MY BROWS LAST?
If after care instructions are followed diligently, your new brows will last approximately 12-24 months before mostly faded; 12 months on average. Sun exposure, tanning beds, chemical peels, oily skin and other factors may affect the life or your tattoo. A yearly touch up is recommended to maintain great looking brows!
WILL THEY LOOK NATURAL?
Absolutely! We use The Natural Hair Stroke Microblading technique to create realistic, simulated hair strokes that look like genuine eyebrows! Your brows can be as big and bold or as soft and subtle as you like! Our goal is to make your brows look beautiful and natural without anyone ever knowing you got them tattooed.
