Microblading (also known as Feather Stroke or 3D Brows) is a modern, semi- permanent, custom type of eyebrow tattooing. Microblading is accomplished entirely by hand through a precise technique customized to create your perfect brow. After a thorough consultation, your brow is carefully mapped according to your unique facial structure using specially designed software as well as the technician's artistry and ability; it can take nearly an hour to perfect your custom brow map, which will be used as a guide during service. At the time of your appointment, the technician will carefully follow your brow map, meticulously hand-drawing each hair line into your brow for a hyper-realistic, subtle look that is nearly indistinguishable from your natural hair. Results will last for up to a year and a half.
This treatment is ideal for anyone who needs gaps filled or have over-plucked eyebrows from decades past. If you're simply tired of using pencils and want to achieve a no maintenance brow, Microblading can be an excellent option.
Prices start at $350 for microblading only. Price includes a refining session 4-6 weeks after the initial service.
Hybrid brow enhancement is a revolutionary technique combining modern machine shading techniques with microblading. The result is a soft, powdered look with fluff for just the right amount of fine detail.
Prices start at $450 for hybrid brow enhancement. Price includes a refining session 4-6 weeks after the initial service.
12 month touch up appointments start at $200.
Additional touch ups (between 12 month sessions) start at $75 and are assessed in person or by photo. Only for existing clients.
Your initial consultation is free.
