A message from Lisa
Being a reformed over-tweezer myself I know first hand what it is like to have less than perfect brows. When I was in Jr. High I got a hold of my moms tweezers and went to town, basically solidifying my next 20 years of thin, over-tweezed, mishapen brows that were WAY too far apart, and honestly just sad. Every morning I would try to draw my brows in, make them match, make them look somewhat "normal" and try to give them a symmetrical shape. I would get so frustrated with all the time (and money for makeup) I was spending on my brows. Often, all of that time and effort was wasted when I would sweat, shower, swim or my sunglasses or toddler would rub one of my brows off mid-day. I knew I needed to find a solution to my brow anxiety.
Then I discovered the amazing art of microblading and my brows (and life to be honest) were forever changed! After having my own brows microbladed (and then later converted to a combo brow), my love of all things brows blossomed thanks to my own brow evolution. I quickly realized how much more time and confidence my new brows gave me. I was always getting compliments from strangers about my brows, and I wasn't paranoid that pulling a shirt over my head in a dressing room was going to leave me walking around the mall with one eyebrow. So I set out on my journey to take a leap and help others have the same experience, by enrolling in school, learning all about waxing/tweezing, brow shaping and becoming dual certified in microblading and powder brows. I am so lucky to get to share my art with others like me that have struggled with brows that bring them down. Truly, getting your brows done will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. It is one of those instances where you think "Why in the world did I wait so long to do this?!" I look forward to being a partner and an expert in your brow journey.
THE AVERAGE PERSON SPENDS 15 MINUTES PER DAY FILLING IN THEIR EYEBROWS.
THAT'S MORE THAN 91 HOURS PER YEAR.
Don't waste your precious time worrying about your eyebrows any longer.
smudgeproof & waterproof
Brows won't wash, sweat or rub off when you bathe, swim, or exercise. That means no more drawing your brows back on each day after you shower. No more trying to make them even and matching. You can live your life to the fullest, and your brows will stay put.
Our brains are naturally attracted to symmetry and proportional, defined features. These have long been associated with youthfulness, health and beauty. We will discuss your desired shape, and use specialized tools to map your facial features using the Golden Ratio of 1:1.618 to ensure your new brows perfectly compliment your individual face and look perfectly balanced with your features.
(money & planet)
Having your brows done is not only good for your wallet in the long run, but it's also good for the planet. Plastic makeup tubes, containers and applicators take years (sometimes hundreds of years) to decompose and end up sitting in landfills or polluting our oceans and waterways. Think about all of the different pencils, powders and potions you've tried to get your brows looking good, most of them just ending up tossed in a drawer or the trash. Feel good about your brows, in more ways than one.
Types of Brows
Microblading is a permanent brow service in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin, creating fine individual hair strokes that look very realistic, and improve the appearance, shape and density of the brow. This method is best for those with dry to normal skin type and those with fluffy and full brow hairs. When healed, this looks the most natural, and will be similar to real hair strokes. The result will look less filled in than a combo or powder brow. At your appointment we can discuss your specific brows and which look would be best for you and your brow goals.
HAIR STROKES ONLY
HAIR STROKES + SHADING
Combo brows are a combination of two different techniques, Microblading and Shading (also known as Powder Brow). A microblade tool is used to create hairlike strokes either throughout the entire brow or just in certain areas (determined on a case by case basis), then a shading tool is used to tap/stipple pigment directly into the skin to create a more dense look that helps to further fill in sparse areas and areas between the hair strokes. When healed, this looks similar to a powdered makeup look, and is more filled in than just microblading alone. This shading can be done throughout the entire brow, or just partially, starting in the tails and getting lighter as it gets closer to the front of the brows, also know as Ombre Brows. This technique is best suited for Normal to Oily skin, or for those hoping to achieve a more filled-in look. At your appointment we can discuss your specific brows and which look would be best for you and your brow goals.
It is not a requirement to have a consultation before having your brows done, in fact, most people don't. When you book an appointment to have your brows done, each new brow appointment will begin with a thorough consultation to discuss your brows, answer questions, and review paperwork. We will also spend extensive time mapping/shaping/matching your custom pigment color. If you feel like you would like to come beforehand and ask specific questions/discuss the procedure or specific individual brow concerns, please feel free to book a consultation first. This is a 15 minute appointment and during this time I will evaluate the shape, coloring, any previous tattoos or microblading and answer any questions you may have before moving forward with the procedure, including which procedure might be best for you. Please note, it is not a requirement to have a consultation before having your brows done, in fact, most people don't. (When booking it will state that this appointment is $20 - If you book an appointment after your consultation to have your brows done, you will pay the $20 at this appointment and it will be deducted from the total price of your microblading the day of your procedure).
