In the last year or so eyebrows have become the focal point of every woman’s face. Approximately 10 years ago the trend was too have super thin, over-tweezed brows. I definitely took advantage of that trend in high school. My brows were very thin and I definitely over tweezed. My eyebrows have not been growing back in the “right” spots. I also have very light eyebrows – they are light light brown, almost blonde. I was so embarrassed of my eyebrows that I would draw them on before I did anything every morning. About 6 months to a year ago, my mom mentioned microblading to me (my mom also has very thin eyebrows – we both have to draw our eyebrows on everyday) and I finally decided to try it out.
The place that is the best for microblading in Jacksonville, Florida is Frangipani – sooo many people recommended Frangipani to me. I finally decided to make an appointment with Courtney. She was great – I definitely recommend her! Courtney’s brow instagram is: thebrowbabe_
The appointment took about 2 – 2.5 hours. First, Courtney went over details about microblading, aftercare, etc. Next, she drew on brows as a guide. I then approved the brows and she made a few corrections that I asked her to change. She then puts a topical numbing cream on your brows – so you don’t feel anything! She then begins the microblading process – I can’t exactly explain everything because I was laying there with my eyes closed (basically it involves putting ink into your skin but not as deep as a tattoo goes.) After she was done, I looked in the mirror and was so excited to see that I have thicker, real looking, beautiful brows!
The best part of microblading is that it is semi-permeant which is perfect since brow shapes constantly change! I am too afraid to tattoo my brows on forever. I go back to Courtney in about six weeks for a touch up appointment. So the pictures of my brows now are technically not the final product. *I will do another post after my touch up appointment *
The microblading appointment was $500 + tip. (I tipped 20%). The price includes the touch up appointment because that appointment is necessary. Below I included my before and after pictures – the difference is crazy! Let me know if you have any questions about microblading.
