BEFORE THE TREATMENT
Q. Do you do hairstrokes or block brows?
A. We specialize in ultra-realistic permanent cosmetics. For brows, this means we can imitate natural brow hairs – whether you have any left, or none. Alternatively, if you do want a block brow style that can also be achieved. We will work with you to achieve the perfect brow style for you.
Q. Can I have my brows waxed, then have a brow treatment?
A. Any waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the treatment.
Q. Can I have electrolysis on my brows, then have a brow treatment?
A. You should wait a minimum of five days between having electrolysis and permanent cosmetics for brows.
Q. Do I have to have all my eyebrows shaved off?
A. No. We prefer you to keep your own brows - don't even tweeze them before you come in as we like to work within your natural shape if possible.
Q. Will you need to remove any of my natural brow hairs?
A. Ink & Arch Salon will work with whatever brow hairs you have. It’s a common myth that brow hairs need to be shaved off for permanent cosmetics treatments. This is not the case at all. The only time brow hairs may need to be removed is if there is any errant growth which needs tidying up, either through tweezing or plucking.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
Q. Will my brows look very dark after the treatment?
A. You should be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. This will subside and become lighter as the skin heals. This process can take up to 10 days.
