The thing that I love most about microblading is seeing and hearing the joy expressed by my clients afterwards! It’s an amazing, fulfilling, feeling to know that I have helped someone look younger and be so excited!!

My training was from my incredibly talented daughter Haley Buckner. She has HaleyBucknerBrows in Long Beach, California and she is phenomenal. People call her “The Brow Queen” and has become a sensation on Instagram with 101,000 followers. Haley was a celebrity makeup artist and now does brows for stars like Mary J Blige, Demi Lavato etc. I’m a proud mom.
I’ve been doing microblading part time for two years.

I use a single microblading stylus and sometimes a shader. Microblading is a multiple step process. The initial process. 8 week touch-up. Touch-ups thereafter every 6/8 months. This will give the color boost and fill-ins needed to maximize the best results!

Yes. Oily skin, may need sooner touch-ups.

Microblading is not without a little bit of pain but with the numbing cream and gel, my clients stay comfortable and say that it’s definitely worth it and easier tolerated than some other semi-permanent makeup processes.

The brows look fine before this time though. I explain the full step by step process in full before the procedure send home an aftercare sheet and specially formulated coconut oil for microblading.

I regularly charge $450 for the initial microblading. I’ll honor a special for $375 until September 15! 8 week touch-up is $100. 6-8 month touch-up is $150.

Also, doing retouching on their portraits. This gave me tons of experience with facial features. Before photography, I was also a painter. Art is in my blood!
