Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, 3D brows, or feather stroke brows, is a form of cosmetic tattooing or 'permanent' makeup performed manually giving the artist more control over how fine and natural the strokes or 'hairs' will look.
The technique is performed using a hand held tool comprising of a tiny blade composed of very fine needles which deposit pigment into the surface layer of the skin in order to create natural-looking hair-like strokes. The procedure is done manually using sterile and disposable tools and specially formulated pigments are used to match the natural eyebrow colour.
Microblading is intended to fill in patchy brows to create more fullness and definition or to create eyebrows entirely in the case of complete hair loss. The result achieved is very subtle giving the overall facial appearance a whole new dimension.
The PhiBrows microblading technique involves the use of PhiBrows pigments which are of the highest quality around; this means that your semi-permanent makeup will never fade pink, purple or greenish unlike traditional eyebrow tattoo. With PhiBrows, the new shape of your brows are calculated according to your face. The hairs created, flow with the natural direction of hair, the shape designed bespoke to your facial features and the colour is blended to mimic your natural tones. All of these factors are paramount in achieving a natural and realistic result, lasting up to 18 months before a top up is required at half the original treatment cost.
The shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to your facial proportions. Brows are designed bespoke to your face. You are then shown the carefully drawn shape for your agreement.
Hyper-realistic hair strokes are drawn on individually and artistically following the natural hair growth direction using a superfine PhiBrows single-use sterile blade hand-tool. Any discomfort felt is interpreted differently from person to person but is temporary and intermittent.
The pigment is planted into the strokes, precisely filling each of the individually drawn hairs to give long lasting results. Your new natural and hyper-realistic brows are revealed! A soothing ointment is applied and given to you along with full aftercare directions. The full treatment is a two-part process. A retouch is essential 4-6 weeks following your first treatment.

A £50 booking fee is required to secure your booking following a pre-consultation to determine suitability for the treatment. This is deducted off the full price at the end of the treatment.
Retouches are recommended 4-6 weeks post initial treatment to redefine any strokes that have not healed sufficiently. If any further retouches are required within three months, the additional charge is £50 per additional retouch.
An annual refresh is recommended approximately every 12 -18 months or so from your initial treatment. This is charged at half the original treatment cost. Treatments maintained after this time may be charged at full price due to the time needed to do a new enhancement.
It is illegal to perform a cosmetic tattoo on anyone under the age of 18, therefore ID will be required from young clients.
