FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is microblading?
Microblading is an artistic technique of tattooing individual 3-dimensional hair strokes with a hand held tool called a microblade - made of up tiny micro needles. Unlike traditional tattooing, miroblading artists (aka Rita & Jordan) hand draw each hair to match the color, coarseness, and natural hair growth pattern of your eyebrows. It's very important to only let certified and licensed artists do this process as it has to be done with precision and accuracy.

What's the difference between microblading, shading and combo brows?
Microblading is done by using a manual blade to create hair-like strokes. This technique gives the brows a more natural appearance as if it was your own hair.
Microblading & Shading are two techniques combined to give the brows a more filled in appearance that resembles makeup while still appearing natural. This specific technique combination can benefit clients with little to no hair by adding more density to help blend the areas with less.
Ombre/Powder is a technique done specifically by a machine and a makeup lovers favorite! It resembles a powder filled in brow where the tails of the eyebrow are darker and fade into a light start of the brow leaving a soft powdery look. Ombre/Powder is a also a great technique for clients that have very thick eyebrows.
How do you pick a shape and color?
Whether you're just looking to enhance the fullness of your natural eyebrows, correct symmetry issues, or create an entirely new brow, we will take it one step at a time. We work together to choose the shape of your new brows according to your preference, our professional opinion, and measurements. Measurements are based on your brow bone structure and facial features.Because the 3-dimensional strokes are so small there is no real way to show you what they will look like, we will show you an outline of the new shape using a cosmetic pencil.
The goal is for the pigment to blend in with your natural brow color to achieve a realistic appearance. To do this, we have a variety of colors and only use a high-quality pigment that is a perfect match based on your skin tone, hair color and preference.
We will NEVER start microblading until you are 100% satisfied with the shape and color!
Who is not suitable for microblading?
We would love to offer microblading to every client who requests it but it's important to remember that not everyone is a candidate for microblading. Below are a few scenarios that would NOT be good fits for microblading:
Have had Botox in the last four weeks
Have gotten a deep tan or chemical/laser peel in the last two weeks
Allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine or epinephrine
Anyone who has a serious medical condition may require a physician's medial release (skin disease, irritation, diabetes, etc.)
Can microblading lead to scar tissue in the future?
