Terms & C
CONSULTATION (15 MINUITES)
This is where we’ll have you fill out the consent form and get to know you and your brow lifestyle. We’ll examine your shape and ask you a few questions about your daily routine. You’re welcome to to bring any brow inspiration photos you may have and we’ll discuss your shape preferences and brow pigment color.
BROW DESIGN (30 MINUITES)
Using our measuring tools, we’ll custom design a brow outline that’s best proportioned to your facial features. At this point we may ask you to smile, frown, talk and laugh so we can see how your mimic muscles move.
We’ll both review the design and make any adjustments necessary. Once the brows are approved, we’ll clean up the shape and start the Microblading procedure.
MICROBLADING (1.5 – 2 HOURS)
This is where we draw each individual hair by inserting pigment in the uppermost layer of the skin using a tiny handheld tool with a blade made of microneedles. We only use sterile and disposable tools and are compliant with all regulations by the OC city health department.
Each brow design is unique in the sense that no two natural eyebrows are the exactly same. Our shapes will be as symmetrical as they can be for your face, but to achieve the most natural look, the hair strokes may vary slightly per brow.
We will review after care instructions with you and provide you with an aftercare kit that includes everything you’ll need for the initial healing period of 7-10 days. It’s vital that you adhere to the aftercare instructions to achieve the best results and retention for your brows. We wouldn’t want to waste all that time and TLC we just invested into them!
To achieve the most beautifully natural brows for your face, you will get the absolute best results by prepping for the appointment and following the after care. The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.

THE HEALING PROCESS
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST 6-8 WEEKS:
The first week is going to be gnarly. Here’s a list of thoughts that will probably cross your mind:
- OMG these are way too dark and way too thick
- What have I done???
- Why are they staring back at me?
- I can’t go out like this.. I look crazy.
The good news is, the Intensified colour and slight redness are part of the initial stages of healing and will only be from days 2-5. Don’t worry, don’t freak out.. just be patient.
This is the initial shock phase and we ask that you just simply trust the process. After 7 days, the brows will fade about 20% and shrink about 10% to a much more natural look. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal peeling or flaking may take place.
Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process. Healing will vary with skin type, but you may experience colour fading and loss of hair strokes. This is completely normal.
We like to include a complimentary touch up session where we can assess your healing and fill in any missing strokes as well as give it a colour boost. We can then recommend the best follow up timeline for future appointments.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup that creates natural, beautiful eyebrows with a handheld microblade. It’s perfect for people who have overplucked or those who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows.
Technically, microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. However, unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists apply each hairstroke with a handheld microblade. This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hairstroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client’s existing eyebrow hair. With a strong artist at the helm, the results can be gorgeous and very lifelike.
Microblading typically takes two appointments to complete. In the first appointment, the client is profiled and the eyebrows are drawn on with a brow pencil, so the artist and client can agree on the look. The artist then microblades the eyebrows and the client is ready to go back into the world. There are some pre-care and aftercare required, but your microblading should be completely healed in 30 days.
The second appointment is a touch up at least 30 days after the first session, but we prefer to do it at 6 weeks. This allows enough time for the ink in the epidermis to naturally slough off, and the color to settle into your skin. In the touch up appointment, the artist can see how your skin has received the ink and make any necessary corrections.
WHO IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR MICROBLADING?
Microblading is not recommended for those with oily skin or large pores. If that’s you, you may want a shading or combination shading and microblading technique. We also do not provide microblading for people:
- under 18 years old
- pregnant or nursing
- if you have diabetes, glaucoma, skin diseases such as Shingles, psoriasis or eczema on the area of treatmentallergies to makeup
- Keloid disorder, HIV/Hepatitis, skin cancer, hemophilia, or if you’re taking skin medications like ro-accutane and steroids.
HOW DO YOU MATCH THE COLOUR OF THE HAIR?
Our pigments are of the highest quality and are pre-mixed to match every type of hair color. We can mix in additional pigment colors to match each individual client. Beauty Angels Pigments are hypo-allergenic, vegan friendly, and have great retention!
Brow Pigments are a blend of red, yellow, and black which makes brown. Yellow is the color that typically fades the fastest, which may leave brows more reddish or cool grey. Phi Pigments compress the yellow ink so that it fades evenly with the other colors, to create the most natural finished result.
HOW LONG DOES IS LAST?
Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 2 years for most people, before it usually needs a touch up. This can vary depending on the skin type and how you take care of the treated area.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
You’ll be able to wear your new brows back to brunch! In the first 7-10 days, you’ll need to avoid getting them too wet (in the shower), working out (sweating) or wearing brow makeup. Please see aftercare for more details.
DOES IT HURT?
Most clients report little to no pain, and would compare it to a tweezing session. Many clients even fall asleep! Topical anesthetic is applied prior and during the procedure so the client can feel at ease while receiving the treatment.
HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE?
A microblading sessions consists of a consultation the day of, where we review your lifestyle and daily brow maintenance. We then map the brows according to your facial structure with the golden Phi ratio of balanced proportion. Once you approve the brow shape, the procedure takes about an hour and a half. This entire session takes a total of 2.5-3 hours.
