The Bossy Brow Postiche

Enhance your brows with this manual permanent makeup treatment that uses a hair stroke technique to resemble the look of natural brows.

Pigment is manually implanted directly under the skin by using a small uniquely designed blade.

Regardless of the amount of hair present the results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly.

Meet Your Certified Permanent Makeup Artist, Kerri Shackmann

A dual topical anesthetic method is used for all procedures. This ensures a comfortable experience while you achieve the brows of your dreams. Most clients describe the overall sensation as similar to a brow wax or threading.

The initial heal will occur over a two week period. The stages that the brows will go through are all part of the healing process. All microblading procedures require a “dry heal”. This means that the brows CAN NOT get wet for ten full days. Over the course of the two week period the brows will darken and scab over, the scabs will shed and new skin will replace the old, the hairstrokes will appear much lighter, and finally around day fourteen the hairstrokes will brighten into a close representation of the final color.

At the eight week point, a second visit is REQUIRED. It is impossible to know how each person’s individual skin type will retain the pigment color. This touch up appointment is to enhance the initial treatment and give you the final product. You will go through the same healing process as the first treatment.

The results can last anywhere from 12-18 months depending on skin type, age, and proper skincare. A color boost once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.

A non-refundable booking fee of $50 is required to make your reservation. This fee WILL be applied to your procedure cost. You will pay for the remaining at your first procedure visit. The total cost includes consultation, two treatments, and a care package.

Services and Descriptions:The Bossy Brow Microblading at Postiche

3D Hairstrokes ~ $400
3D Hairstrokes provide the most natural look in cosmetic tattooing! It can be used to enhance an already beautiful shape, fill in a brow that has been over tweezed or waxed, or completely replace a missing brow due to alopecia or post cancer treatment, etc.

Powder Technique ~ $400
The Powder Technique uses the same handtool to create the look of fllling in your brow with a pencil or brow powder. This is a much softer look than the “traditional” brow tattoo.

Hybrid Brow ~ $450
This is the combination of 3D Hairstrokes and Powder Technique over the full brow shape. This is the most dramatic look of the techniques that I offer.

Yearly Color Boost ~ $275
The microblading procedure provides a beautiful, natural looking brow by implanting pigment that is not near as deep as a traditional tattoo. This results in some fading over time. I recommend a yearly color boost to keep those brows looking beautiful!!

Does it hurt?
I use a dual topical anesthetic method for all of my procedures. This ensures a comfortable experience while you achieve the brows of your dreams! My clients best describe the overall sensation as similar to a brow wax or threading.

How long does this procedure take?
Please allow approximately 30 minutes for the consult and about two hours for your procedure.

How long does it last?
This varies greatly from person to person depending on their skin type and care regimen. Approximately 1-2 years for the 3D Hairstrokes. I recommend a color boost each year at a reduced cost. If the yearly color boost is skipped, the procedure will be full cost.

Will 3D Hairstrokes work well for me?
3D Hairstrokes are not for everyone. If you have excessively oily skin, receive certain skin treatments, take certain medications 3D Hairstrokes may not work well for you. There are other services that would have a more pleasing appearance for you. I would be happy to discuss all options and if you decide to go ahead with 3D Hairstrokes I would be happy to do so!
