Microblading is a technique in which a "micro-blade" is used to cut hair like strokes into the eyebrow area which is then gone over in a pigment that matches your natural eyebrow color for better blending. The idea is to follow the natural growth pattern of the hair while also creating a better shape and fullness. Once healed you will have strokes that resemble real eyebrow hair! This technique is best for those who naturally have a decent amount of eyebrow hair, but may be lacking shape or fullness.
Ombre is a technique that is different from microblading because rather than it resembling hair strokes, it resembles a soft, powdered brow. Your artist will start with light shading at the front of the brow (near the nose) and then shades the brown in just a bit darker at the bottom of the brow to define the arch in an area where it won't appear too harsh, then at the tail for better definition. Most photos you see of the ombre are immediately after the procedure. Once healed, it presents much softer. This technique is best for those who may have areas of missing hair or not enough eyebrow hair for there to be a natural shape.
The Combination is a combination of Microblading and Ombre, which gives an all over shaped, defined brow with hair strokes mainly in the front of the and ombre shading through out. (Though some may need microblading through-out as well). This is a great option for those who have little-to-no eyebrow hair, and rather than an enhancement, are looking for a more dramatic change - complete, natural, defined eyebrows.
All About Touchups
Touch-ups are important to keep your work looking it's best and how often you need a touch-up is dependent on your skin type and the kinds of products you choose to use on the area. For example, those with very oily skin or who use brighteners often may need touch-ups more frequently.
We recommend that everyone comes back for their first touch-up 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure and usually recommend you have your next touch-up one year later, though for some we may recommend less or more time.
Pricing for touch-ups depends on how long it's been since you were last seen here.
If you are coming in more than two years after your last touch-up the price can be anywhere from the 2 year price, up to that of a new procedure.
If you are scheduling a touch-up here but were last seen at another studio, pricing is determined on a case-by-case basis. The quickest way to find out pricing for this service is to send a photo to (714)595-6688. Please include in the message that you are wanting touch-up pricing, how long it's been since you last had work done and any changes you're wanting to make. We will get back to you with pricing and can schedule the appointment from there.
