I am a PhiBrows Royal Artist, Phi Brows is a high quality brow technique using the golden ratio to create perfect brows for your face. During the brow process your new perfect brows will be drawn to shape using a special compass to mark out the perfect shape for your face dependent on your own unique facial structure, checked with a symmetry application and once agreed they will then be filled using your chosen method. PhiBrows Microblading uses only the BEST quality pigment which contains no heavy metals and providing skin quality, do not fade red, blue, or green as many others do!
All treatments must have a patch test prior to appointment, so please include information asked for when booking to provide this.
After your initial treatment you will also have a complimentary top up after 3-10 weeks – to get your finished brows perfect!
During the consultation period fo your appointment we will discuss the look you want & colour. Pigments range from light blonde – black so we will use one to match & suit your look.
If you are unsure of which brow type to choose, please use the guide below to help or book in any type (if hyperrealism is one of your options please book that option, as if you do decide to pick this one it takes a longer appointment time!) and I will guide you to the best technique for you and your desired outcome.
TYPES OF BROWS
I am a Royal level Phi Microblading artist. Microblading involves using a small ‘micro blade’ made up of small pins that scratch pigment into the skin to create ’hair strokes’. We have one of the thinnest blades available! I can also combine manual shading to blading to give sparse brows added depth!
Microblading usually lasts 6- 18 months depending on skin type and post treatment aftercare. Its best on dry, normal or mildly oily skin types. Results can be temperamental on some melanin rich skin tones and very oily skin. Pigment used is Phi SUPER.
Powder brows are like having powder or make up on the brow, semi permanently. I use a hand held digital machine to create tiny pixels or dots of colour which when built up, create a powder effect. Results usually last 1-3 years, before a colour boost is required. It is suitable for all skin types including oily skin. It’s very good for covering old spmu.
Pigment used is Phi or Brow daddy.
Ombré brows are like having ombre effect make up on the brow, semi permanently. I use a hand held digital machine to create tiny pixels or dots of colour which when built up, create a powder effect. With ombre brows colour is graduated from dark and intense on the tail to light on the front area of the brow. Results usually last 1-3 years, before a colour boost is required. It is suitable for all skin types including oily skin, and very good for covering up old spmu. Pigment used is Phi or Brow daddy.
Nano brows look like microblading, but because they are done using a hand held digital machine the results can last longer and it suitable for a larger variety of skin types then microblading. Results usually last 1-3 years, before a colour boost is required. It is suitable for most skin types, however very oily skin can require extra top ups. Pigment used is Phi or Brow daddy.
Combination brows look like hair strokes and shading/powder combined, usually hair strokes at the front of the brow and graduating the shading/powder effect on the tail. Results usually last 1-3 years, before a colour boost is required. It is suitable for most skin types however very oily skin can require extra top ups. Pigment used is Phi or Brow daddy.
HYPER REALISM BROWS
Hyper realism brows are wispy hair strokes and small areas of shading to create a fuller, fluffier brow. They are done using a hand held digital machine. Results usually last 1-3 years, before a colour boost is required. It is particularly suitable for older or thinner skin as its a very delicate technique.Pigment used is Phi or Brow daddy.

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE FROM HAIR STROKES AND SHADING?
Microblading, Nano brows or hyper realism brows create natural hair like strokes, whilst shading or powder brows create a ’make up’ effect, similar to powder on the brows. Shading can also be used in small amounts in microblading, nano or hyper realism brows to add depth.
WHATS THE PROCESS?
All appointments are a 2-step treatment – the initial treatment which includes the shaping and then a touch-up 3-10 weeks after. (You will also need a patch test at least 48 hours before, which is sent out when booking)
The procedure will normally take about 2 hours.
We begin by marking the faces golden ratio measurements and create a shape from this, drawn on with a special pencil. During this time I will ask the style you like and thickness etc, and you will have an opportunity to amend things with the shape you may want different.
We then discuss pigment shade, without input I always go to the natural brow hair colour by default. I then begin the first strokes of microblading using pigment, The pigment is applied just below the epidermis and the most shallow part of the dermis, making extremely fine realistic hair strokes according to the natural hair growth direction or powder effect dots depending on technique chosen. Anaesthetic is then applied and the strokes are then filled or further shading will be applied.
I will then go through your aftercare procedure.
A top up is included after your initial treatment. Although rare, depending on how your skin takes to the pigment you may also need further touch ups at an additional price.
DOES IT HURT?
Microblading and machine methods feels a bit like a scratch or scratching the skin. An anesthetic is used to numb the area after the initial hair strokes/ powder dots (around 5-10mins) are created. Some clients find it mildly uncomfortable while some find it easy.
WHATS THE HEALING PROCESS AND AFTERCARE?
Healing varies for each individual. It takes about 7-14 days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off, and about 30 days for the color to fully set in.
You will be given a wash routine and aftercare cream and explained how best to treat your brows. AFTERCARE IS 70% of the result so is extremely important. During this time there will be periods, length depending on individual healing when you can’t get them wet, or sweat or expose to direct sunlight.
The brows will lighten up in color as it heals. There is absolutely no downtime. The skin will have an opaque look to it, this is due to the tissue still healing. Once the new skin reaches the surface the beauty and clarity of the brow will show.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE A TOUCH UP?
Yes! Everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Some areas may hold during the first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may also need to be adjusted.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
The treatment is considered as semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, they will fade over time and may need to be refreshed every year. They can last anywhere from 6 months to 2.5 years depending on the skin. Machine methods tend to last longer then microblading, as microbalding is more delicate.
Frequency of touch-ups will depend on many factors including:
- Oiliness of skin
- Pigment colour used ( Lighter can fade faster by nature)
- Sun/ Sunbed exposure
- Excessive exfoliation and peels.
Please note Microblading or machine methods are not suitable from everyone and that final results can’t be guaranteed as each skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. You will be re-evaluated on how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and any necessary changes will be made. Previously tattooed areas will generally always require additional appointments.
CAN I HAVE IT OVER OLD TATOO’S AND SEMI-PERMANENT MAKE UP?
I am very selective when working over tattoos. If you have had your eyebrows previously tattooed, we will need to see them before your appointment booking. For Microblading especially, I can only go over some existing tattoos depending on depth of colour and shape remaining. Machine methods are usually easier to cover old semi permanent make up.
DOES I MATTER IF I HAVE HARDLY ANY or LOADS OF HAIR?
I work on brows that have no hair, to thick brows that need filling in. Only hair outside of the shape drawn will be removed!
If you no eyebrows at all and want microblading or nano brows, I will most likely add shading to make your brows more ‘3-D’
HOW LONG IS THE APPOINTMENT?
The appointment will run about 2 hours.
WHO ISN’T SUITABLE FOR MICROBLADING or SEMI PERMANENT BROWS?
• Pregnant, pregnant within the last 6 months/ Breastfeeding within 6 months
• History of Keloids or Hypertrophic scarring
• Diabetic (require doctor’s clearance)
• Chemotherapy (consult your doctor – 6 months after is usually okay )
• Viral infections and/or diseases
• Pacemaker or major heart problems
• Organ transplants
• Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
• Immune diseases & Thyroid issues
• Accutane in the past year
• Heart conditions, Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure, Poor general health.
• Any treatment, medication, or illness that compromises the immune system / healing would make you NOT a good candidate for micropigmentation procedures.
HOW DO THEY HEAL?
Your new brows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
Be PATIENT during your 2 weeks healing process, your brows will change and appear different from day to day, this is NORMAL.
The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still seating on top of your skin and has not yet settled in completely. The colour of the pigment will soften gradually.
Around days 4-5 you will experience dry skin formation and your brows may look dry and flakey. DO NOT PICK your scabs, let them fall off naturally. If they come off prematurely, they will take with it pigment. Its also crucial not to wipe on aftercare cream or rub brows on the pillow during this time.
Your eyebrows will be the lightest tones during says 5-10 because the colour is absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin. Later skin cells push it back to the upper layers.
The durability of the pigments depends mostly on the skin type and life style, after care.
The final result will appear 4 weeks after second session, although in some cases further top ups are needed.
I HAVE VERY OILY SKIN, CAN I HAVE THE TREATMENT?
Machine methods (ie, all but microblading) are recommended for oilier skins, as microblading is very delicate the oil can mean the pigment doesn’t retain very well in the skin.
