Am I too old to be doing this, or too old to be concerned about my eyebrows?
I don't think there is a cut-off point when we quit wanting to look our best. I have many clients in their 70s and 80s for permanent eyebrow make up, and sell lots of gift certificates for Mother's day, Grandmother's day, and Christmas. Health and skin condition (ability to heal) determine if a procedure can be done. Some of the older ladies will need to be done in smaller sessions instead of trying to do the whole thing in one session. Which permanent cosmetics procedure the person wants is a consideration also. I might be willing to do permanent eyebrows on a person that I would not be willing to do permanent eyeliner or lips on.
Do you use stencils?
No, I free hand it so the eyebrow will fit the individual's face. Using stencils is putting the same brow on everyone...when they don't fit anyone. The differences in the two sides of the face often require that one side be drawn modified for both sides to look the same. A true artist does not need stencils to create perfect brows.
Do I draw my eyebrows or do you?
If you like the way you draw your eyebrows, come in with them already on. I will still measure and mark the parameters, double check symmetry, and offer suggestions. Most people let me draw their eyebrows for them. I measure and mark the parameters: start mark, stop mark, and point where the break of the arch should be - plus any modifications needed for a particular face. Next step is to draw them in to the shape and thickness the client prefers. When the client likes the way the eyebrows are drawn on, that is my pattern.
Do you have a book of eyebrows to choose a design from?
I have many before and after photos but it is best if we work with your natural pattern, enhancing and perfecting the perfect brow design for you.
Do I come in with or without makeup?
For eyebrows, I like to see how you have been wearing them (the shape and thickness you prefer). We can wipe them off after you arrive. I draw the eyebrows, then you look in a mirror. You might like it the first time, or you might say you like it thinner, thicker, more arch, less arch, etc.
If you don't like someone’s eyebrow design, do you refuse service?
I will offer suggestions that would make the eyebrows more aesthetically correct, and pleasing. If the eyebrows desired are merely dramatic, "on point", or bold...we will proceed. If the eyebrow design is way off the charts and we cannot agree, I bless my competitors with the referral.
Will I be charged for cancelling my appointment?
A credit card is required to book and hold your lash extension appointment. Appointments cancelled less than 6 hours prior to your scheduled appointment will incur a $25 fee.
Having your eyebrows permanently tattooed on can shorten your makeup routine. When you apply your brows with makeup, it takes time to draw them on with the eyebrow pencil, and then fill them with eyebrow corrector. Tattooed brows remove that aspect of your makeup routine.
Permanent eyebrows are the most sought after permanent makeup procedure in our studio, because of the way they define your face. A well-placed, well-shaped brow can make the face look thinner, younger, and more polished.
Many cancer and alopecia patients benefit from permanent makeup procedures. The right color, shape, and definition, restores the brows appearance, and a client's confidence.
