How does microblading work and what to expect
A typical microblading appointment lasts up to 2-3 hours. A touch up appointment lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the amount of work that needs touching up.
A standard appointment will have the following steps:
Step 1: We Interview You
After you book your appointment, we’ll interview you about your makeup routine and lifestyle. First the microblading artist will assess the client’s lifestyle and taste. Do they want something bold or natural? Do they wear makeup every day or just special occasions? What face shape does the client have? Do you draw your brows on every day or only special occasions? Do you like bold, statement brows or soft, subtler brows? This interview will help the artist create the best brows for their client. Many clients have over-plucked in the past, and want a return to their signature look. During the interview, we’ll work with you to customize your best brow.
Step 2: We Draw Your Best Brow
Once we determine your best brows, we’ll sketch your new eyebrows directly on your face with a vegan wax pencil. This will be the artist’s guide for the microblading procedure. This also allows the client to see the final look before any permanent work is performed. Our goal is to create beautiful brows that match the symmetry of your face. We’ll help you find the perfect color and shape just for your face.
Step 3: We Numb Your Brows
A lot of clients ask us, “Does it hurt?” The answer is: nope! Most clients do not complain about any pain, and some even fall asleep during the process. Before and throughout microblading, we apply a topical anesthetic to ensure you feel as little discomfort as possible. You can sit back, relax, and dream of having eyebrows you always envisioned!
Step 4: Microblading Begins
Once your eyebrows are numb, we begin microblading. This takes 30 minutes to an hour. Each hair stroke is meticulously hand drawn, matching the color and coarseness of your natural hair. Unlike traditional eyebrow tattoos, which use a machine, this process uses a microblade. That’s why microblading is an art form
Step 5: We Reveal Your New Eyebrows
And finally, the big reveal! After microblading is completed, there is lots of extra ink remaining on the client’s face. We’ll wipe away any excess ink and reveal your brand new eyebrows. Except for some redness, the client will be ready to go back out in public, no problem. This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship between you and your eyebrows. No more stressful morning maintenance. Just perfect brows every day, rain or shine, for up to 2 years! A touch-up after 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment is required.
Step 6: Say Goodbye to Drawing Your Eyebrows in the Morning
The end results are natural, undetectable and the best part about the technique is that there is no down time. Our happy customers wake up to flawless brows, and we take great pride in that. As an artist, we’ll photograph our work for many reasons, not the least of which, to have a record and for future reference. Microblading is life changing, ready to discover microblading for yourself?
