Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent.
Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine.
The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look.
Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
Lash extensions draw more attention to your eyes than mascara alone, and 24/7, so you’ll look fab when you wake up, after your workout, in the office, on the beach…
One lash at a time, we’ll frame your eyes with a long, thick, luxurious set. Single strands of high quality mink lashes are applied onto your natural lashes to enhance and extend. Our lash artists create a bespoke look, using a variety of extensions to build the right volume, length and curl for your unique style.
And what’s the difference between ‘lash extensions’ and ‘cluster lashes’?
Lash extensions are individual synthetic strands, curled like natural lashes – but better! Cluster lashes are made up of 3-4 strands fanning out from a “bulb” glued on to your natural lashes.
So, cluster lashes are more difficult to blend in with your natural lash line… and they’re usually lower quality, too. You’ll likely find cheaper rates for cluster lashes – and if you see them applied, you’ll know why!
Be warned, lash extensions are incredibly delicate – so give them the TLC they deserve! Exposure to steam or extremely hot water, and touching, picking, or rubbing your lashes can weaken the adhesive bond on your extensions.
Typically, clients get infills every 2-3 weeks, however some clients prefer to replace their full set every 4-6 weeks.
Longevity also depends on the glue used to apply your lashes. The stronger the glue, the stronger the bond, and the longer your extensions will last. The downside to strong glues is an increased chance of adverse reactions. The stronger glues have vapours that may cause severe tearing, itching, stinging, swelling of the eyes, and allergic reactions. As such, we do not use these glues, and do not recommend extensions applied this way!
