Brows and lashes can really make or break a gal. They can either make you feel like a total babe, or totally self-conscious.
Whether you were a chronic over-plucker in your earlier years, have a health condition that may prevent your brows or lashes from growing full, or have naturally thin brows or short lashes, Erin and her team of professional brow and lash artists will transform your brows and lashes so that you’ll go from avoiding your reflection, to not wanting to look away when you pass a mirror.
"After years of debating whether or not to take the plunge and try microblading, I can wholeheartedly say that it has been the BEST investment I have made in a long time. Erin is a master of her craft and takes time to truly listen to her clients before the appointment even begins. My brows were virtually non-existent due to overplucking as a teen. Using the combined technique of microblading with shading, Erin created incredible brows that frame my eyes perfectly. I wake up every morning feeling fabulous and with 5 extra minutes since I have officially called it quits with my brow pencils and powders!"

Achieve dreamy, natural-looking brows with Microblading services—a semi-permanent makeup technique that’s used to make delicate, realistic hairstrokes using ink formulated specifically for cosmetic tattooing. We only go about 1mm into the skin to ensure your brows stay soft, crisp, and absolutely luscious!
Erin is a licensed tattoo artist who takes great pride in helping women like you achieve their picture-perfect look customized to your aesthetic and texture preferences.
Before we begin, we discuss the shape and color you’re envisioning for your brows. Then, taking into account your eye shape, face shape, and natural placement of your brows, we create a look that balances your vision and what will best compliment your features.
We like to consider microblading as an art, rather than a science. Erin will measure and map out your brows for symmetry and free-hand the rest to create the most natural-looking, flattering look for your features.
We are trained and licensed professionals who will never create an over-the-top or unnatural look. You’ll feel confident knowing you’re in the hands of one of Connecticut’s most experienced and reputable microblading professionals.
Fusion brows are microblading with shading added in. This allows you to have the look of hair strokes and like you filled your brows naturally with pencil or brow powder. For shading, we use a special machine to give a soft effect. The results are gorgeous and is Erin’s most requested style of brows.
Not everyone is a great fit for microblading. The ink retains best for normal-to-dry skin types. If you have excessively oily skin, microblading alone won’t be the best fit for you. We recommend you schedule shading services, or fusion brows, to achieve the best look.
Microblading lasts approximately 1 year, give or take. Erin will assess your skin at your appointment, and provide skin care recommendations and what to avoid to get the most out of this service based on your skin type.
Yes. If you already have microblading or old brow tattooing that was done elsewhere, you still need to pay the full price and schedule a consultation with Erin before booking your appointment. Consultations are $50, which can be applied towards your booked service.
For first-time clients, a non-refundable retainer of 50% is due at time of booking, with the remaining balance due the day of service.
You'll have to take a brief hiatus from your favorite glass of wine or gin cocktail for 3 days before your appointment. You must also avoid taking Ibuprofen or similar pain meds and blood thinners for 1 week prior to your appointment. If you’re taking blood thinners prescribed by your doctor, please consult your doctor before stopping any meds. If you’re on any meds after having chemo, please let me know what they are and consult your treating physician.
Yes! This is one of the most gratifying services for Erin and her team to do on someone with Alopecia. Our clients with Alopecia have been elated with the results. The confidence this gives you is beyond what you can imagine!
Microblading has a very unique healing process. On the first day, your brows will be dark. Over the next couple days, your brows will get even darker as the ink settles into your skin. You’ll then start to scab—which more often looks like dry, flaky skin. During this time, the color turns ashy and as skin flakes off, it can leave bald spots that make it look like the ink has disappeared. But no need to panic! The ink will begin to reappear over the next week or so.
Erin will go over aftercare with you at your appointment, as these instructions will vary depending on your skin type. Please make sure to purchase spray Bactine to use after your service. If you get botox or any other neuromodulator, this must be done no later than 2 weeks before your microblading appointment and no sooner than 2 weeks after your appointment.
Yes, your first touch-up is included with the price of microblading. Your microblading must be touched up between 4–6 weeks after your original service. If booked later than this time frame, there will be a charge.
Yearly touch-ups (4 months or more after your last appointment) start at $200. We require a non-refundable retainer of $75, with the remaining balance due at the time of your appointment. The final total of your touch-up cannot be accurately determined until after Erin sees your brows in person.
• If you cancel within 3 weeks of your appointment, you will be charged 50% of your service if we can’t fill your space.
• If you cancel within 48 hours or less of your appointment, you will be charged the full balance of your service.
• If you wish to rebook, you will need to place a new non-refundable retainer of 50%.
Cancellations must be made by email AND phone call. Appointment times are in very high demand so we appreciate you understanding our strict policies.

P.S. We highly recommend this service for brides a couple weeks leading up to your honeymoon!
Using an ophthalmic-safe solution, we place a soft, flexible rod to curl your lashes around and then apply the curling solution to give you the perfect lashes that look longer, fuller, and oh so flirty. Results last 8–10 weeks.

Avoid the DIY eyebrow plucking or waxing disasters—keep those babies in check by having them shaped professionally! We’ll keep your brows looking freshly groomed by tweezing, trimming, and waxing to maintain your perfect shape. We’ll even take the time to show you how to fill them in properly with a complimentary shade from our brow pencils. You’ll leave feeling like a new woman!
Let’s get down to (brow) business. We’ll begin your first appointment by mapping out, measuring, and discussing your brow goals to make sure we achieve your desired look.
We recommend scheduling follow-up appointments every 2–4 weeks depending how quickly your brows grow.
You can also have your brows tinted for longer-lasting color for $30.
We use a synthetic lash extension to adhere one extension to your own natural lash. Your artist will customize your lashes to your desired look while always keeping the integrity and health of your natural lashes in mind. We can create various effects by length and volume. The results are flirty and fabulous!
(And up depending on how many lashes need to be filled in. (Beyond 4 weeks from original date will count as a first full set.)
Your Lash Artist will go over after care with you but here are some helpful tips:
We highly recommend purchasing our lash growth serum which can be bought in the studio. This will condition your lashes and help them grow quicker and stronger most times resulting in your lash extensions lasting longer. We want you to get the best out of your investment.
Arrive for your appointment with no mascara or eye makeup of any kind. Avoid moisturizer on or near the eyes before your appointment.
• Do not get your new lashes wet or exposed to steam or sweating for 48 hours after your service.
• Never pick or pull at your lashes as this will result in damaging your natural lashes.
• Avoid sleeping on your face as this could put a kink in your extensions.
• Avoid oils or cream based cleansers or eye makeup remover as this could loosen the lash adhesive.
• Cleanse your lashes every day (after the 48 hour period from your service) with an approved cleanser.
• Daily brush gently through your lashes with a clean, dry spooly brush. We will provide you with one at your appointment.
"I was one of Erin's brides. I had decent lashes but I wanted them to look good for my honeymoon and not have to worry about wearing mascara while on the beach. I had the lash lift and tint and the results were awesome. My lashes were curled and shiny black. It looked like I was wearing mascara! The best part was they lasted for about 2 months. I love having this service done year round now."
