Permanent make up is definitely getting more popular....your absolutely right! it is featured all over the place nowadays!Susie H said:I think its getting more and more popular because so many of us have such busy lives that anything that can save us a bit of time with out us looking dog rough is going to prove popular. I want to have my lips done because I can have the line done a little bit out side my natural lip line and get a fuller look which will last a lot longer than the colegen injections.
my replies are in purple....hope this helps! xxleah82 said:Hi i was just wondering then where would you go/ who would you contact to do this sort of thing?
do a search on the net, you should get loads of choices
Was thinking of having my eye-brows done, was gonna have them tattooed on but thought if i didn't like them then i'm stuck?
whoever you choose to do the procedure should go through a thorough consultation - this ensures that when the procedure is done there is very little chance of you not liking them! you decide on the colour and shape and the specialist needs to then mix a custom blend of colour pigment to exactly match your desired colour and then helps to make sure both your eyebrows are even....this is essential before the procedure is started.
How long do they last?
This varies from person to person but is generally around 3-5 years
As they fade don't they?
How quickly they fade will partly depend on how well you look after the your eyebrows when they have been done.
Don't know of anywhere near me that does this sort of thing? I have my eye-lashes done now & then, but they don't do permenant make-up. Don't want to go to just anyone as i don't have thick eye-brows through choice i thicken mine with a brow pencil, so if they messed up boy would it show!!
go to someone who knows what they are doing and this won't happen!
How much does it usually cost by the way??
This varies from area to area and also how experienced the specialist is. Ask loads of questions and ask about their training, how long they have been doing the procedures and how many they have done. Another good thing to ask about is if they have any reccommendations from clients who've had it done.....i have a book of letters from happy clients, new clients like to see these. oh, and one other thing ask to see loads and loads of before and after pics! this should help you decide if you want that person to do yours for you!
Sos for all the questions!!
your right kimmi, it does cost a lot of money to train to do permanent make up...over the last 5 years i have invested over £20,000 in training alone, plus the added costs of having the majority of my products and equipment shipped in from the states! not to mention trips out there to update my knowledge!!Kimmi Rocks said:Can I just say..............as a possible client, that it's way too over priced. To have it done that is. Yeah, yeah, I know it costs a lot to train but then so do most professions, i.e. Nails, Hair, Alternative Therapies.
The average for eyebrows is £350 and that is exactly why the machines sit in the corner gathering dust. If you charged £100, they'd be lining up around the block and you be making a massive profit in no time.
