Fequently Asked Questions

What is Microblading vs Powder/Ombre Brows?

  Now you can have the eyebrows you've always dreamed of.  Imagine waking up everyday with the perfect eyebrows, no fuss!


  Microblading is a technique that uses a hand-held pen to create your desired natural looking eyebrow hair by hair. This is done by depositing organic pigments into the outer layer of the skin using a very fine "microblade."Unlike eyebrow tattooing, the microblading technique is semi-permanent and lasts anywhere from 9 months to 2 years depending on skin type and how well they are cared for.  The final result is a very natural looking, (looks like actual hairs) full and beautifully polished brow!


Powder/Ombre Brow is also a semi-permanent procedure but it uses a machine to deposit the organic pigment into the surface of the skin. The final result is a more of "makeup filled' look very crisp an polished!

(see gallery for examples)


The benefit of these semi-permanent treatments, is that you are able to make adjustments over the years. No one ages symmetrically and eyebrow styles change! Maintaining your perfectly polished eyebrows will keep you looking your best, your youngest (as you can achieve quite the brow lift!)  and in style!

What can I expect during the Consultation?

  Jennifer will meet with you to explain your options and which procedure would be the best option for you. She will go over in detail what to expect and how to properly care for your new brows. An analyse of the following will take place: face shape and brow bone, eyebrow thickness and natural color, skin tone, hair and eye color.  If you have any pictures of desired eyebrow shapes and styles, please bring them to the session to help determine exactly the type of eyebrows you would like.

Jennifer will draw your new shape onto your face to show you what your new improved eyebrows will look like.

A consultation takes approximately 15 -30 minutes and is designed to answer all of your questions so you can make an informed decision to see if this is a fit for you.


All Consultations are Complimentary!

How long will the Procedure take?

  Your private, one on one initial brow treatment will take between 2-3 hours.

 A 3 hour appointment time is booked to ensure plenty of time is given for additional questions and/or if breaks are needed. The following 6 week touch-up appointment is a 1.5 hour booking. An annual maintenance appointment (a fill) is a 2 hour booking.  


Clients will never be rushed and all treatments are in a private studio - no assembly lines here!!!

Is it Painful?

  No, however this is a medical treatment. As with most procedures on the skin, it is expected that there may be some minor discomfort. Two anesthetics are used topically on and in the skin (no needles, just creams)  to ensure you are comfortable during the entire procedure. There may be heightened sensitivity during your menstrual cycle. 

Most clients are surprised that simple tweezing is more uncomfortable than this.


Is it Safe?
