A.K.A "OMBRE BROWS" / "POWDER BROWS"
How Microshading Works.
You’ll have a brief discussion with your licensed esthetician about the look and shape you want to achieve with your brows.
We’ll start with mapping (or drawing) your brow shape onto your face.
Next, we’ll decide on the best pigment ink color for your brows to match your hair color.
We’ll then use a tattoo pen to go over the map of your new brows with the decided pigment color. Most clients describe the pain in this phase as very minimal. And the process only lasts a few minutes for each brow.
We’ll then use numbing cream to numb the area on and around the brows.
Then, we use a special microshading pen to create ink dots that fill in the brow shape and achieve a fuller, thicker brow!
Perfecting session: Most microshading procedures will require a second, “perfecting” session 6-8 weeks later where we add more pigment to the brows to make them thicker and adjust the brow shape if needed.
WHICH ONE SHOULD I GET?
Brow Lamination vs. Brow Wax + Tint
Tell us about the look and shape you want to achieve with your brows.
We start with applying a special, “brow lifting” solution to your eyebrows to stretch and soften the hair. This makes the hair easy to work with, so we can move the hairs into the shape you want. Pretty much, it’s a perm on your brows.
Then, we apply a setting cream to set the hair in its new shape, and then brush the hair in its new position.
We’ll also wax away excess hair and tint the brows (color enhancement) for full, bold, fluffy brows.
Brow Wax + Tint
First, we'll dye (or tint) your brows according to your hair color
Then, we’ll shape the brows with our unique mapping technique and remove excess hair with wax to create that perfect arch.
Finish it off with some brow concealer and brow gel for beautiful, enhanced brows.
Brow Lamination is for you if:
If you want an alternative to microshading that still lasts an extended period of time (6-8 weeks) and requires little-to-no daily maintenance.
Brow Wax + Tint is for you if:
If you want no-maintenance brows that take less than an hour but require touch-ups more often. Due to the tint naturally fading over time, we recommend coming in every 4-6 weeks.
Microshading / Ombre Powder Brows (3 hrs)
This service is for you if you want full, thick brows that last up to 2 years with occasional touch-ups. We create a map of that perfect brow on your face and then use a special machine to fill in the mapped brow with pigment ink dots that match your hair color.

Brow Wax + Tint (45 m)
We define and enhance your brows by dying your brows with a tint to match your hair color and removing excess hair with waxing. Beautiful brows in under an hour that lasts up to 10 days on skin and 6 weeks on hair.
