"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 microblading must be touched up between 5–8 weeks after your original service. This is where we will reinforce the pigment where it faded more than the desire results and will ensure longer lasting results until your yearly touch up. We like to refer to this as the "perfecting session".
Yearly touch-ups (4 months or more after your last appointment) start at $200. We require a non-refundable retainer of 50%, with the remaining balance due at the time of your appointment. The final total of your touch-up cannot be accurately determined until after we see your brows in person.
• If you cancel within 4 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. Appointment times are in very high demand so we appreciate you understanding our strict policies.
"I did the microblading and have gotten so many compliments, several of my friends are going to be booking as well! Also, no need for lash extensions just have them do the lift and curl to your lashes. Great experience and results!"
