In case you missed it, I got my eyebrows microbladed yesterday!!!! This is something I have wanted to do for so long now but being pregnant the last year followed by nursing meant I had to wait until I was no longer breastfeeding (unfortunately it came to an end recently which I will touch on in another post) but this meant I could finally get my brows done!
My very dear friend Linda recently opened her own Brow Studio, Bella Brow and Spa in south Edmonton! I have known Linda for almost 6 years and there is so one I trusted more to do my brows!!
First step is to decide whether you want Ombre or Feathered Brows. These are two different techniques that give two very different outcomes. Ombre Brows have a darker tail of the brow and fade to a lighter shade as you near the head of the brow giving the appearance of a finished makeup look fading from dark to light. Feathered Brows have a more natural look mimicking the look of real hair follicles/stems. I chose to do the feathered technique because I am not wearing makeup much these days and wanted the appearance of fuller, more natural brows!
Next step and one of the most important aspects of the procedure is the measuring. It is critical to make sure your brows are even (most natural brows are not) . Here is a photo post measuring and outlining of my brows!
Next we selected the ink that best reflected my natural hair colour. Once your brows are healed the pigment of the colour will fade 30-40%, the brows appear very dark immediately post procedure as you will see in the photos below but once healed will look very natural in colour!
The feathered microblading process uses a single blade with ink to slice the skin, replicating the natural look and curvature of a brow hair. It feels like a cat scratch, Linda was great and used numbing cream which made the treatment very comfortable. Most appointments range from 1-2hrs depending on the desired shape and thickness!
Lastly lets talk about pricing! Linda charges $350 whether you are wanting ombre or feathered brows and the first touch up is FREE!! The rest of her services and pricing you can find here. This is THE most reasonable price I have seen especially considering there is no fee for the initial touch up appointment!!
Overall I could not be more ecstatic with the results, they are absolutely gorgeous, they look so natural and they are exactly the shape I was hoping for! Ive added some before and afters below! Seriously how amazing do they look!!
