Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the process take?

This can depend on a few factors including face shape and skin type. Generally the pre procedure measurements can take between 45-50 minutes and the micro-pigmentation procedure between 1-2 hrs. We advise you allow 3hrs for your appointment time.

 

How long does it last?

Semi permanent makeup is not maintenance free. We recommend a colour boost every 12- 16 months depending on how well you care for your brows. Skin type, lifestyle and sun exposure also plays a huge part.

What happens at the consultation?

Consultations can be tailored towards client preferences offering a face to face or over the phone personal service. When visiting the salon you will undertake a patch test and be given a pre procedure form detailing all the do's and dont's pre and post treatment. it is important that you read the information thoroughly and inform Sarah of anything you believe may effect your treatment to prevent last minute postponing of your treatment and loss of your booking fee.
