BROW 101

Microblading  |  Hybrid Brows  |  Ombre Powder Brows

All of the techniques we offer are considered permanent makeup, or tattoos, to help make you look younger, more refreshed, and more put together with NO effort!

 

Specifically, all of our brow permanent makeup techniques involve the insertion of ink into the skin to create natural looking eyebrows. We only use the highest quality of cruelty-free/vegan pigments as well as disposable sterile needles.

 

All of our Brow Artists are licensed & insured cosmetic tattooists who have trained with some of the best permanent makeup academies in the U.S & Europe. It’s crucial that you choose not only a certified permanent makeup artist, but also a licensed one to ensure your health is protected!

 

Because all procedures result in eyebrows that will be on your face for a while, it's important that you understand exactly how all this works. Our goal is to educate you on the brow process so you can feel confident in your decision about choosing our salon to “GLAM” your brows.

 

Please take a few moments to review our “Brow 101” guide to learn more about the permanent makeup process.

 

We look forward to earning your Trust! 

 Three Types Of Brow Permanent Makeup

MICROBLADING
HYBRID BROWS
OMBRE POWDER BROWS

Microblading

This technique involves making hair like strokes into the skin with a hand tool and ink, resulting in an eyebrow tattoo that looks like natural hair. The Microblading strokes that are created will camouflage in with the natural eyebrow hair. This option is for those who want very natural looking subtle brows.

  • Looks like hair strokes

  • Best for people with dry skin. Oily skin is not recommended as the microblading strokes will not heal well.

  • Better for people who have a good amount of natural eyebrow hair. Not ideal for thin or sparse brows.

 

Typically lasts 1-1.5 years. Yearly Touch Ups are needed to maintain the color & shape
