Is Permanent Makeup Right For Me?
Microblading is a great option for anyone who struggles with thin, sparse brows as well as those who wrestle with symmetry or penciling in their brows on a daily basis. Microblading can also be an excellent solution for extremely light-colored brows and individuals with alopecia and trictotillomania or those undergoing chemotherapy (please check with your doctor before having any services completed). However, microblading is also perfect for individuals who just want to wake up with gorgeous brows and spend less time filling them in!
Looking for a less permanent solution? Henna Brows are a great solution to “try before you buy” if you’re afraid of the commitment of microblading or you donʼt qualify for microblading due to illness/medication preventing you from having permanent makeup. It’s also ideal for special occasions and those looking to save time during their “get ready” routine.
