FEATHER BROWS

CLAUDIA LOUIS-MARIE | MAKEUP ARTIST 


ABOUT

ALSO REFERRED TO AS - MICROBLADING, FEATHER TOUCH / MICRO TOUCH AND BROW TATTOOING. LASTING BETWEEN 6-18 MONTHS, FEATHER BROWS GIVE THE EFFECT OF ULTRA FINE, DELICATE HAIR STROKES - CREATING THE MOST NATURAL SEMI PERMANENT BROW IN THE WORLD.

THE TECHNIQUE USED TO FEATHER IS TO CREATE EXTREMELY FINE SCRATCHES TO THE SKIN USING A HAND TOOL WITH A BLADE. A ROW OF TINY NEEDLES IN THE BLADE IS USED TO CREATE THE STROKES, WHICH MIMIC THAT OF A NATURAL EYEBROW HAIR.

EACH STROKE IS GENTLY FILLED WITH PROFESSIONALLY FORMULATED BROW INK TO MATCH AND FLAWLESSLY BLEND WITH YOUR NATURAL HAIR TONE AND COMPLEXION. YOUR SHADE IS CUSTOM MIXED + BLENDED BY CLAUDIA, EVERY TIME.

PERFECTLY MEASURED, BALANCED AND MAPPED OUT, CLAUDIA’S BROW SHAPING IS ONE OF A KIND. CLAUDIA BELIEVES EYEBROWS ARE THE FRAMEWORK TO ANY FACE AND AIMS TO EHANCE YOUR FEATURES USING HER SKILL AND TECHNIQUE IN BROW FEATHERING.






PROCEDURE

FEATHER BROWS REQUIRE TWO SESSIONS, FOUR TO SIX WEEKS APART. AT LEAST TWO SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED IN ORDER TO LAYER STROKE, THEREBY ENSURING A NATURAL AND DIMENSIONAL TEXTURE IN YOUR BROWS.

YOU WILL FILL OUT A CONSULTATION FORM, WHICH WILL ENABLE CLAUDIA TO GAIN A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR SKIN, HEALTH & WHAT YOU ARE WANTING TO ACHIEVE WITH YOUR BROWS.

ONCE COMPLETE, CLAUDIA WILL ASSESS THIS FORM, ANSWER ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS AND DISCUSS ALL ASPECTS OF THE PROCEDURE WITH YOU BEFORE NUMBING YOUR BROWS WITH A TRIPLE ACTION NUMBING CREAM. ONCE THE AREA IS NUMB, WE BEGIN THE DESIGN PROCESS.

USING A COSMETIC PENCIL, CLAUDIA CREATES YOUR TEMPLATE, THAT IS CUSTOMISED TO EACH CLIENTS NATURAL FEATURES & EXISTING BROW. CLAUDIA WILL CAREFULLY DESIGN YOUR START, ARCH AND TAIL TO REPRESENT THE SHAPE SHE INTENDS ON CREATING FOR YOU. ONCE FINALISED, CLAUDIA BEGINS WITH A FEW SMALL HAIR STROKES TO GIVE HERSELF A GUIDELINE. EACH HAIR STROKE IS PLACED PERFECTLY TO ENSURE IT FLOWS AND BLENDS WITH THE NATURAL HAIR GROWTH GIVING A SEAMLESS RESULT.

AFTER THE BEGINNING STROKES ARE COMPLETED, CLAUDIA WILL SHOW YOU WHERE THEY WILL SIT ON YOUR FACE, THE COLOUR & MAKE SURE YOUR NUMBING CREAM IS TOPPED UP WITH A FAST ACTING GEL. FROM HERE THINGS COME TOGETHER QUICKLY, IT'LL BE OVER BEFORE YOU KNOW IT AND YOU'LL BE WALKING OUT WITH NEW AND IMPROVED BROWS!


FIRST SESSION


IN THE INITIAL SESSION, THE FOUNDATION IS LAID. THIS IS THE BASE OF YOUR FEATHER STROKE BROWS, AND TAKES APPROXIMATELY TWO HOURS. CLAUDIA WILL BEGIN WITH A FULL CONSULTATION. YOUR BROWS WILL THEN BE MEASURED AND DRAWN ON WITH A COSMETIC BROW PENCIL. THIS IS WHEN YOU DECIDE EXACTLY HOW YOU WANT YOUR FEATHER STROKE BROWS TO LOOK. THIS PROCESS IS NOT RUSHED, AS CLAUDIA WILL TAKE HER TIME UNTIL YOU ARE ONE HUNDRED PERCENT SATISFIED WITH YOUR BROW SHAPE AND LOOK. ONLY WITH YOUR APPROVAL WILL CLAUDIA START THE PROCEDURE.

YOUR COMFORT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE, A TOPICAL NUMBING CREAM IS APPLIED PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE STARTING TO EASE THE MINOR DISCOMFORT FROM THE FEATHER STROKING. A TOPICAL ANAESTHETIC GEL IS ALSO APPLIED TO THE BROW DURING THE PROCEDURE TO MAINTAIN YOUR COMFORT.

FOLLOWING THE COMPLETION OF THE PROCEDURE, CLAUDIA WILL TALK YOU THOROUGHLY THROUGH THE HEALING PROCESS OF YOUR FIRST FEATHER STROKE BROW SESSION, INCLUDING SHOWING YOU HOW TO USE THE TAKE-HOME CARE KIT SHE SUPPLIES.



SECOND SESSION

THE SECOND SESSION IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS, AS IT INVOLVES BLENDING ANOTHER LAYER OF HAIR STROKES THROUGH THE BROW, ADDING SHAPE AND CREATING DEFINITION. CLAUDIA WILL FINISH THE BROWS BY ADDING ANY FINAL TOUCHES AND CREATING DEPTH OF COLOUR IN SOME PARTS OF THE BROW WHERE IT HAS BEEN LOST DURING THE NATURAL HEALING PROCESS OF THE FIRST SESSION.

THE SAME PROCESS WILL BE REPEATED, JUST LIKE YOUR FIRST SESSION WHERE CLAUDIA WILL REDRAW, ENHANCE AND LAYER YOUR FEATHER TOUCH BROWS. THIS IS WHEN YOUR BROWS ARE PERFECTED.

FOLLOWING THE COMPLETION OF THE PROCEDURE, CLAUDIA WILL TALK YOU THOROUGHLY THROUGH THE HEALING PROCESS OF YOUR SECOND FEATHER STROKE BROW SESSION, INCLUDING SHOWING YOU HOW TO USE THE TAKE-HOME CARE KIT SHE SUPPLIES. 4-6 WEEKS AFTER YOUR SECOND SESSION IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR BROWS TO FULLY HEAL.



AFTER CARE

CLAUDIA WILL GUIDE YOU THROUGH A 7 DAY POST - TREATMENT CARE PLAN, DEPENDING ON YOUR SKIN TYPE.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOUR FEATHER STROKE PROCEDURE, YOUR BROWS WILL APPEAR DARKER AND RICHER IN COLOUR THAN YOU MAY HAVE EXPECTED. THIS IS GOOD, AND NORMAL AS YOUR BROWS WILL ALWAYS SOFTEN IN APPEARANCE OVER THE FIRST SEVEN TO TEN DAYS. AS EVERY INDIVIDUALS SKIN HEALS DIFFERENTLY, SOME CLIENTS MAY HOLD PIGMENT BETTER THAN OTHERS, THEREFORE THERE ARE DIFFERENT DEGREES OF FADING.

DURING THE FIRST FIVE DAYS POST-PROCEDURE, YOU MUST NOT WEAR OR USE ANY MAKEUP, COSMETIC OR SKINCARE PRODUCTS ON OR AROUND THE BROWS. YOU MUST AVOID WATER, STEAM, SUN AND ANY ACTIVITIES THAT WILL MAKE YOU SWEAT. IN SHORT, YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR BROWS AS DRY AS POSSIBLE TO OPTIMISE THE HEALING OF YOUR NEW FEATHER BROWS.

HEALING BALM IS SUPPLIED FOR YOU TO USE EACH DAY, WHILST YOUR BROWS ARE HEALING. YOU WILL BE ADVISED HOW AND WHEN TO USE THE BALM. IT IS NORMAL FOR CLIENTS TO SEE A LOSS IN COLOUR OF UP TO 50% DURING THE FIRST HEALING PHASE. A SECOND SESSION 4-6 WEEKS LATER IS ALWAYS NEEDED TO COMPLETE YOUR FEATHER BROWS.



THIRD SESSION

A THIRD SESSION MAY OR MAY NOT BE NECESSARY, AS EVERY INDIVIDUALS SKIN HEALS DIFFERENTLY. SOME CLIENTS MAY FIND THAT THERE CAN BE A FEW GAPS SHOWING, EVEN AFTER THEIR SECOND SESSION. THESE WILL NEED A FEW MORE FEATHER STROKES AND/OR A LITTLE EXTRA COLOUR. THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL, AND SHOULD THIS BE THE CASE WITH YOUR FEATHER BROWS - YOU CAN BE ASSURED THE THIRD SESSION WILL BE YOUR FINAL ONE, PROVIDED YOU HAVE FOLLOWED AFTER CARE CORRECTLY.



YEARLY REFRESH

TO MAINTAIN FLAWLESS AND FRESH FEATHER BROWS, CLAUDIA ADVISES A YEARLY REFRESH + MAINTENANCE SESSION. REFRESH SESSIONS BOOKED WITHIN 14 MONTHS ARE AT A LESSER PRICE. THOSE WITH OILIER SKIN TYPES HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO REQUIRE A REFRESH WITHIN A 6-9 MONTH TIMEFRAME AS THE PIGMENT WILL FADE AT A FASTER RATE TO NORMAL / DRY SKIN TYPES.
