WHAT IS MICROSHADING?
Microshading, aka combo brows, is a combination of microblading and ombré powder brows. The combination of hair strokes and shading gives a natural looking brow. It's more filled in than just microbladed brows, and less dramatic than the ombré powder brows.
A touchup is required 6-8 weeks after initial appointment.
*TOUCH UP INCLUDED IN PRICE*
Aftercare instructions will be provided at your appointment along with an aftercare kit.
- All skin types (dry, oily, combination)
- Those who fill in their brows regularly with pencil or shadow
Results do vary based on lifestyle, skin type, health, preferences, etc.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Microshading can last between 1-2 years depending on your skin type.
To keep your brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested 1 year after 6-8 week touchup.
DO I NEED A PATCH TEST?
Patch tests are optional.
All pigments used are non reactive, and hypoallergenic.
Although allergic reactions are extremely rare, a patch test is recommended at least 48 hours prior to your appointment.
If you wish to have a patch test done, please contact us to schedule a consultation. If you wish to proceed without a patch test, you are required to sign a waiver at the time of your appointment.
