Save money on a pair of shoes but pay top dollar for the tech that is about to put permanent eyebrows on your beautiful face.
Occasionally I will hear from a client say “so and so got her permanent eyebrows done for x amount.” They often look at me for a response in which I say. “Well you really don’t want to look for a deal when a tech is about to tattoo on your face.” Generally that ends the discussion. Not meaning to be blunt or callus in my response I am being very serious. You really do get what you pay for.
Top doctors, lawyers, plumbers, hairstylist have spent years training, learning and perfecting their craft. It is no difference in permanent cosmetics arena. Top techs in our area have spent years in training and spending a fortune on classes. It is known in our industry that it takes about average 5 years to be really considered a top level provider in permanent cosmetics. Tattoo artists are the same, in fact in their profession they require most new artists to do a one year apprenticeship prior to working on any client.
Permanent eyebrows look easy in the videos. It looks like we just put on some pigment and take our tools and zippity do da you have perfect brows. Not so. First of all the design work alone is challenging for many reasons. Human faces are not even or equal on each side. There are minute differences that us, as professionals must compensate for to create an even pleasing natural look. Eyebrows are sisters, not twins.
Not only is design challenging there is a whole world of color choice. Color is complex in our professional. There are over 500 pigment blends to choose from. We have to not only decide on a color we have to see the future and estimate what it will look like once healed and how it will look in the skin. On the skin looks very different than IN the skin. Skin is not a clear window there are layers of color in there including blues, yellows, reds and more. We have to analysis all that and come up with a plan.
Our Permanent Eyebrow Tools
Needles are our paint brushes and there are many choices, brands and styles of machines. We have to choose the best tool to achieve the end result and our clients skin health determines what speed we use. Then you add in numbing creams creating a comfortable experience for our clients there is a layering method to achieve the best comfort. Add up all those talents and you can understand why top talent charges what they do.
Correcting poor quality work is also very expensive, emotionally disruptive and can require ongoing touch ups. My take home message is save money on a pair of shoes but pay top dollar for your tech that is about to put permanent eyebrows on your beautiful face.
