So. I have no tatoos, never had surgery for anything more than giving birth, never been cut on. The idea of someone cutting on my face sounded pretty dang scary & I totally almost chickened out. SOOOOO glad I didn’t. I got my brows micro bladed!
I’m pretty embarrassed to show you guys my before pic but it’s a must sooo here it is. I tell people, I have no eyebrows. No jokes y’all. They’re not pretty, well, they weren’t anyway. Mine were so thin and light that I did a combo of microblading and micro powdering.
A friend of mine turned me onto Timeless Beauty KC, she had been there for microblading herself and her brows looked bomb. So I knew I liked her work & trusted the results; I made an appt! Bad “beauty blogger” move, I got no pics of the inside but her salon is very chic! You know how those type places just generally really pretty, they just relax you? They just make you feel better about what you’re doing, for whatever reason, her salon is just like that. The consult was quick & you don’t have to do a pre-procedure consult if you don’t want to. You can do that right then & there, that’s the route I chose. You go clean faced, hydrated and well moisturized. She had me draw on my brows like I normally would and then she drew them on with the right dimensions and shape for my face; I wasn’t too far off but still it was different. I showed her a couple pics of brow shapes I liked and the coloring I wanted. She walks through all of that while you sit with numbing cream for 30 minutes. Then she begins. The process it’s self takes about an hour, I was there for a total of 2 with consult and numbing. There was minimal pain involved more of a slight burning sensation for me. After she was done, I couldn’t of been more pleased!! They looked soo good. If you’ve been thinking about doing it, I totally recommend it! Even more so, I recommend Timeless Beauty KC.
Just some little details about the process
Microblading involves little cuts being made to create fine lines, creating the illusion of hair. Color is deposited into those cuts, making brows look more “real”.
micropowdering gives the brow a gradient appearance with small pin-point dots
The healing process is about 7-14 days, in that time the coloring will soften some.
You can’t get your brows wet for 3 days, which means no makeup around your brow area either (I just wore a ball cap for a couple days to keep from wearing makeup on the top half of my face HA!).
During the healing process, your brows may scab some, DO NOT PICK. I thought this would be a hard task for me (I’m a little bit of a picker) but I haven’t touched them!
You follow up in 4-6 weeks. She will check to make sure you’re happy with shape and color and do touch ups if needed!
Heres my after. 2&3 weeks post cut; I go back in 2 weeks for a follow up/touch up!!
