Stop Worrying About Re-applying Makeup
Beautiful Eyebrows That Last
This is a hair stroke technique using a blade that makes little cuts. This service is best for younger clients with healthy dry/normal skin and a decent amount of existing brow hair.
This technique is meant to look like powdery makeup and can be as bold or natural as desired. This service works well on all skin types and is the most popular and least traumatic for the skin.

The eyebrow shape, color, and texture is fully tailored to each individual client for the most realistic results. Courtney spends a great deal of time working on the shape beforehand, using calipers, string, and rulers, and gets approval from the client prior to beginning the tattoo. Microblading differs from conventional permanent makeup tattooing because it is a manual procedure.
Microblading is done by using a manual tiny blade (like a mini exacto knife) and making thin, superficial cuts in the skin that are filled with ink. These cuts are made in a design that mimics brow hair. It is only recommended for dry or normal skin with a lot of collagen since collagen will be needed to repair the trauma of the cuts. It is not recommended for oily or mature skin or those with rosacea because it does not heal well most of the time on those skin types.

Powder Ombre Brows
Powder brow is a style of eyebrow tattooing that is meant to resemble eyebrow powder or pencil makeup. It is done with a tattoo machine and Courtney gently implants pixels of pigment to build up color. Depending on the preferred style, she can create a natural, light powder makeup look, a gradient, or a crisp shape.
It can be used to give dimension to brows where microblading can’t. It can look very natural or very much like makeup. It all comes down to personal preference. If a client is used to filling in brows with makeup, that look can be achieved with a tattoo.

Combo brows are a combination of the hair strokes and powder brow shading. It is good for people who have little to no eyebrow hair because it creates an illusion of depth and fullness. It also helps fill in areas where microblading doesn’t blend well with existing eyebrow hair.
Courtney often will do machine hair strokes instead of manual microblading because the machine is better suited for more skin types.
Manual microblading involves making little cuts in the skin to mimic hair and filling those cuts with ink. It does not typically heal well on mature skin, oily skin or those with inflammatory skin issues such as rosacea.

What to Expect During your Brow Appointment
Once the shape is approved by the client, numbing gel will be applied for 12 minutes, then the tattoo portion begins. The brow tattoo itself typically takes 30-50 minutes, depending on the skin and size of brow. The vast majority of clients are so comfortable, they feel as though they could fall asleep through the brow procedure! Courtney will have the client sit up when the tattoo is 85% finished to check symmetry/balance.
Once the tattoo is finished, she will go over aftercare directions (a hard copy will be provided) and take pictures. The entire appointment, including paperwork, numbing and pictures, is 90 minutes (105 minutes for correction work). A 6-8 week touchup needs to be booked, which is 50 minutes and not as intense as the initial service. At the touchup, any patchiness, shape or color issues can be addressed.
What to Expect During the Healing Process
Day 2) Oxidization: Brows look large, dark, and scary. Swelling may have them looking a bit lopsided. Trust the process!
Day 3-5) Drying: Healing wound is drying out and is less inflamed – keep them clean and moisturized with the aftercare provided.
Day 6-10) Cracking & Flaking: The thin scabbing is pulling apart and is flaking away in fish-food-like chunks. Brows will be much lighter in color and quite ashy.
Day 30) Cracking & Flaking: The thin scabbing is pulling apart and is falling off in fish-food-like flakes. Brows will be much lighter in color temporarily.
Day 45) Skin is fully healed and you’re ready for your 6-8 week touch-up.
