Microblading? Combo Brows? Nanobrows? Ombre?
What is right for me?
Are you brow curious but overwhelmed by the lingo and the choices? Do you want brows that compliment YOUR face and don’t look like a template that belongs on a 20-year-old Instagram model? You are in the right place!
I’ve spent half a decade perfecting my hyper-realistic, ultra-natural and wearable brow for real women. Not Instagram models who use 30 products to get a “natural look”. But real women who want to wake up looking their best so they can get on with their day and not spend extra time in front of a mirror fussing with their brows. Or maybe you have sparse and blonde brows and you want to look alive when you go to your yoga class or hop on a Zoom call. Whatever your goal, together we can make it happen.
My work has been recognized by the American Academy of Micropigmentation as a Gold Certified member — the FIRST in Central Texas and the fifth in the entire state. I am also a 2021 Sponsored Artist with MEI-Cha Global, an international leader in the permanent makeup industry.
Is Microblading Right for Me?
Microblading, Nanobrows, Combo Brows, and Powder Brows are types of semi-permanent cosmetic eyebrow tattoos. They are semi-permanent because of the type of pigment used in micropigmentation as well as the depth the pigment is implanted in the skin during micropigmentation procedures. The difference between microblading and nanobrows is that microblading is done with a manual tool to create hairstrokes, while nanobrows is performed with a handheld cosmetic tattoo device to create hairstrokes.
Microblading is best for those under 60 years of age with normal to dry, healthy skin.
Nanobrows is best fitted for those over the age of 60 or those with very oily or very fragile skin.
Powder & Combo Brows use the same handheld cosmetic tattoo device but with different techniques to create a velvety soft powdered effect – as if you had filled in your brows with a soft brow powder.
Combo Brows are just that, a combination of hairstrokes and feather soft shading. This is suitable for most all skin types but especially for those who have large gaps in their brows that need to be filled in daily or when repairing shape.
