What to expect during your treatment:

Please arrive to your appointment on time.  Paperwork will take about 5 minutes to complete.  We will take before and after pictures of the treatment area and pre numb you for 20 minutes to help with any discomfort. 

After numbing your artist will pre-draw an outline of your desired look.  The initial shape is drawn but ultimately it is up to you what you would like your shape to look like, your artist will always give their professional opinion. 

When a shape is decided on your artist will then select a few options for pigments based on your skin tone, undertone and color of your natural hair.  Your artist will never begin the treatment until a shape and color is agreed upon together. 

Your entire treatment will take up to 2 hours. A lot of your time is spent numbing throughout the treatment and having the pigment soak into the area that was bladed. 

Your artist will thoroughly go over after care instructions at the end of the service and you will be sent home with after care balm and instructions via email.  Please make sure to have a date in mind for your follow up visit 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment.
