Q & A FOR BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Thank you so much for trusting me with your beautiful face!
Prior to booking an appointment, we ask that all SHE BROW & MAKEUP clients read and review the information below in full to ensure they are properly informed about our payment and cancellation policies, consent, and client record forms, frequently asked questions, and more. It’s a lot of information, but it’s very important that each client understands everything prior to booking an appointment. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about anything!
How do I book an appointment?
Once you have reviewed the information in this packet, ask us any questions you have, and then we will choose your appointment date. Your appointment is not considered booked until the deposit is paid, so be sure to pay that as soon as possible! Remember to bring your photo ID to your appointment. Also, it’s very important to book your touch up appointment when you book your initial appointment! This is to ensure that you get a date and time that works for you before our schedule books up. The touch up appointment should be 4-8 weeks after your initial appointment. Lastly, please do not book an appointment without a consultation if you have ever had prior permanent makeup before, no matter how long ago it was or how faded it looks to you. We cannot cover most old eyebrow tattoos that we see. Thanks!

Failure to do so may result in disappointment and loss of deposit if you arrive to your appointment and it cannot be covered.

Please review our cancellation policy below prior to booking.
Please read this policy before booking any appointments at SHE BROW & MAKEUP to make sure you fully understand. The reason for this policy is that we remain very booked for all services, with some clients waiting many months to be seen. While we are ever so grateful for our wonderful clients, timely and efficient service is necessary for us to provide outstanding customer service. If you fail to comply with these policies we are unable to service everyone in a fair and efficient way. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority, and these policies exist to give all clients the absolute best experience possible. We are so thankful for your business and welcome any inquiries about this policy!
For all permanent makeup/tattoo appointments, a 48 hour notice is required to cancel or reschedule your appointment. We just ask that you please call and let us know, (voice mail if necessary), text or email us at least 48 hours prior to your appointment time to cancel or reschedule. Should you fail to cancel or reschedule your appointment at least 48 hours before your appointment, you will forfeit your booking deposit. Should you wish to reschedule your appointment at that point, you definitely can! You will have to pay another non-refundable deposit to book another date.
Should you cancel or reschedule your appointment within 12 hours of your appointment, or no call/no show, you will not only forfeit your booking deposit but also will be required to pay the full balance of your missed appointment cost before you can re-book with us. Once you pay the full cost of your original missed appointment, another deposit must be paid which will go toward the new appointment cost to book another appointment. As usual, the balance of the new appointment cost is due at the time of the new appointment.
Should you cancel or reschedule your free 4-8 week touch up appointment within 12 hours, or no call/no show for your appointment, you will be required to pay for your touch-up. Touch-up prices are listed in our pricing menu.
If you are over 15 minutes late to any appointment, you will be asked to reschedule, and the same policies above will apply. This is because all clients receive thorough consultations and detailed, precise work. As a result, we will not rush your appointment or others. Therefore, if you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment you will forfeit your deposit and be required to pay for the balance of your appointment before you can re-book.
There will be no exceptions to this policy. By booking your appointment with SHE BROW & MAKEUP, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to the Cancellation Policy.
Who is a good candidate?
The simple answer is, anyone that wants to have full, beautiful brows all day, every day! That would include busy parents or business people who don’t have much time to apply brow make up, active people who don’t want to worry about sweating off makeup while working out or swimming, or any person who struggles with getting that perfect shape that the celebrities and YouTube makeup artists always seem to have. Other clients include those suffering from scarring, Trichotillomania, Alopecia and Cancer, or other diseases and disorders that have led to natural hair loss.
Let SHE BROW & MAKEUP do all the work for you!

Allergy to Nickel (allergy test is needed before booking)

Botox within last 2 weeks
Accutane within last year
History of keloid scarring
People suffering from severe acne
Chemotherapy patients will need to check with their physician and provide a doctor's note
People with conditions that cause them to bleed very easily (this impacts results)
People with prior permanent makeup may not be good candidates for Mircoblading. This is determined by consultation.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are you certified and licensed to operate?
Yes! SHE BROW & MAKEUP is a licensed tattoo studio and all working artists are certified permanent makeup artists. The salon and staff are all insured. All artists completed a hands-on apprenticeship and received certification from or more permanent makeup artists and training academies. All artists have received extensive training and certification in Blood Borne Pathogens as deemed necessary for tattoo artists by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It’s crucial that you choose not only a certified Microblading artist, but also a licensed one to ensure your health is protected!
Do I need to shave my hair?
No! We will shape your eyebrows as needed with threading and/or tweezing and choose a color pigment that blends seamlessly with your natural brows.
How are Microblading, Shading and Ombre Powder Brows different than a traditional eyebrow tattoo?
The most common type of traditional eyebrow tattoos involves the use of a lot of pigment and a block style brow, which leaves the client with a dark outlined eyebrow and no depth. These often fade to really unflattering colors. SHE BROWS & MAKEUP services leave the client with natural looking eyebrows that look real! Careful selection of pigment is chosen to give depth and shape so that the natural brow hairs and permanent makeup blend seamlessly.
Does it hurt?
Every client is different and pain tolerance varies by client. Most clients describe the pain level as minimal and find tweezing and threading more uncomfortable. At SHE BROW & MAKEUP, we use the best topical lidocaine cream available to minimize discomfort. That being said, this is a still a tattoo. You will feel some discomfort. Based on experience, we would describe the feeling a slight burning, astringent like sensation. Very tolerable and worth it!
How long does it take?
The process takes approximately three hours from the moment you walk in the door to completion of your beautiful new brows. The first hour or so is spent designing your new brows and numbing the area. There is no downtime! Occasionally, some clients will have some slight redness and swelling around the area which is very normal and will subside within a couple of hours. Most clients go on about their normal day when they leave their appointment.
What is the healing process?
Some swelling and tenderness after the procedure is normal and may last a day or so, depending on the client. Your new brows will appear DARKER, WIDER, AND SHARPER than the way they will heal. This is especially true for days 2-5. This is harder for some clients than others. Clients who rarely wear makeup may find that they don't like how their brows look on these days because they are too intense. That's normal! The pigment is sitting on top of the skin and has not yet settled into your face. As your skin heals over the tattoo, your brows with lighten and soften. This process takes about 7 days or so on average. It’s important to follow all after care instructions and to attend the required follow up appointment to make the finishing touches to your new brows! Your healing is only about 50% in our control. Once you leave it's up to you to be diligent about following the instructions you're given to get the best result! And no matter how great they look, it's important to come for your touch up appointment to get the final result.
How long does it last?
This will vary by client. If aftercare instructions are followed diligently, your new brows will last approximately 18 months before they're mostly faded. For some people, their brows will last even longer. Certain factors such as sun exposure, getting chemical peels, oily skin type, etc. will affect whether your brows will last on the higher or lower end of the expected 12-18 months. Also, some clients really prefer a fresh, bright look. Most clients opt to come in for Color Boosts every 12 months instead of waiting for their brows to completely fade.
Will it look natural?
Absolutely! The technique used at SHE BROW & MAKEUP creates realistic, simulated hair strokes and/or powder fill that looks just like a real eyebrow! It’s important you choose the right artist that can give you this realistic 3D look. Your brows can be as big and bold or as soft and subtle as you like!
Are there some clients who cannot retain the pigment?
Yes this does happen. Some people have highly effective immune systems that reject the pigment, and some just have highly effect skin healing. It's very rare, but it's important that all clients understand this is a possibility and in most cases, there is no way for us to know if this will take place prior to the work being done. Occasionally, I will recommend a third appointment to further touch the brows up if the client is retaining some pigment after the first touch up, however anything beyond that would likely be too much for the skin and the client would likely not be a candidate for further permanent makeup.
Should I wear makeup to my appointment?
Ideally yes. We would like to see how you look normally to help design your brows. It's helpful to see how you wear your makeup and hair, and what style of dress you choose. Also, we like to see how you do your brows and what color you use, if you're used to filling them in on a regular basis.
