I’m a graduate of Von Lee school and have had my esthetician’s license for 12 years. I recently completed my microblade training via PhiBrows June 2017.
Microblading is semi-permanent tattooing in which pigment is deposited into the epidermis only by a manual 14-pronged microblade using a cutting motion. The color will fade between 12-18 months depending on aftercare and skin type. Clients will oily skin will need touch ups more frequently than clients with dry skin. Each session takes approximately 2-2.5 hours to complete. This includes measuring, drawing, and perfecting eyebrow placement using the Phibrows app on my phone to ensure symmetry and client satisfaction. Next, numbing solution is applied. Then the initial pass of cuts is made in the direction of natural hair growth and pigment matching the client’s hair color is deposited. The cuts/passes need to be redone at a minimum of 3 times to ensure pigment is deposited since the cuts are much more shallow than traditional tattooing. The process is repeated in approximately 4 weeks to correct pigment loss that occurred (and is expected) during the healing process.
I also offer Lash Lift & Tint as an add-on or stand alone service. A lash lift is designed to create lift at the root of the lash to give the appearance of a more wide open, youthful eye. Lash lifts are perfect for those who are pleased with the length of their natural lashes but desire a semi-permanent curled lash look. Three levels of lift are available. Lash lift and tint is a low maintenance alternative to eyelash extensions. Results last an average of 6-8 weeks. This service includes a tint that gives your eyes definition without wearing mascara.
I am available by appointment (and will take walk ins when possible) at Westminster Tattoo Company on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12-7pm as well as Thursdays 11-4pm. I am also available during those times for consultations. Tuesdays will be available for doing any touch up appointments from 11-7pm.
