What brow options are there and what will suit me?
During the consultation we will discuss how you would like your brows to look and I will draw them on for you to see and make sure you're totally happy before we start. My main aim is to enhance your natural brow shape, and in most cases give the brow more thickness, arch and density, to the give the most natural and best result. As powder brows is a denser pigment than microblading it is advisable to start off on the thinner side and build the thickness if needed, as its a more defined finish.

I have oily skin, can I get Powder Brows done?
Yes Powder Brows are great for oily skin. Microblading can stay on oily skin but over time the strokes will blur due to the oil content in the skin. With Powder Brows the are no strokes to blur, so this treatment is much better for oily skin than Microblading.
Should I get my brows waxed before Powder Brows?
It's up to you, however I would suggest leaving the brows to grow so I can see where your hair is naturally.
