I hope your week is going well so far!
Today I went to get my eyebrow embroidery treatment done as I have been really wanting to get them done for some time now and I have heard so much about them, I have also seen some amazing results on different people. I don’t really have much of a shape to my eyebrows and they are quite fair so I used to have to draw mine on when I done my makeup as I am a makeup artist also so I have had plenty of practice with drawing on eyebrows ( lol ) sounds crazy I know but in my opinion eyebrows really do shape your face so I decided to take the plunge and get them embroided.
I have done some reasearch on them and where to get them done as I wanted them to be perfect and professional, so I did find a place in Arklow Co:Wicklow not to far from where I live and the name of the place is called High Glamour which is a hair & beauty salon and they have a facebook page which I have just left the link to here, They have all their work on what they have done on the Facebook page too.
I gave them a ring and asked about the eyebrow embroidery they do so I got talking to a lovely girl named Pille and she is the beautician in the salon, so I made an appointment with her to come down and have a consultation done which I did she explained what the procedure was and went through what we will be doing on the day which was perfect so I made my appointment to come down the following week and gave her €50 deposit for treatment! The total cost of the eyebrow embroidery is €250 which is great price.
The treatment day itself, I went in at 10am that was the time of my appointment and was given a form to read and sign basically all about treatment & aftercare too which I got a copy of to take home. I then went into treatment room and Pille applied numbing cream to my eyebrows and I waited around 15-20 minutes for that to work, she then drew on my eyebrows with eyebrow pencil just to see what shape I wanted and measured them.
I was happy with what she had done so she proceeded the treatment, I lay down on the bed and she used a microblade with some pigment in it, she used light brown on me because I have blonde hair and quite fair so we both decided to go with that, I felt so relaxed getting the treatment done and I didn’t feel a thing as my eyebrow area was numb, throughout the process she got me to sit up a few times so she could see that both were accurate enough when the process was finished she gave me a mirror to look in and showed me the final result which I was thrilled with, it took about 2 and a half hours for the total eyebrow treatment to be done. I will be going back in 30days time for a touch up so you pay the first €100 on you very first eyebrow procedure and then the other €100 on your touch up, that is the total cost then of €250.
Pille also trained her eyebrow embroidery with Elizabeth Oakes Permanent Makeup artist which she is a experienced & qualified permanent makeup artist known all over Ireland, US & UK! So I knew I had picked the right place to come and get them done. Overall I was really happy with treatment and I couldn’t recommend Pille enough as she is lovely girl and makes you feel so at ease when you are there.
