I confess…I was the chick that over plucked my eyebrows when I was in high school and now live to tell the tale. Enjoy the story on my eyebrows…

As I am of Indian descend, I was blessed with bushy hair, bushy brows and thank goodness, no bushy mustache. The bushy eyebrows were something that really annoyed me when I hit my teenage years. All of us can relate to the the fact that when you are in your teens, it’s all about being beautiful and fabulous.
Without a mom to guide me, as well as living a specific lifestyle in the Cape flats, the pleasures of waxing and threading were completely oblivious to me. Back then, the only thing I was familiar with were tweezers. My fingers became tweezer happy, and before I knew it, my beautiful brows were history.As I grew older, I longed to have them back. I tried all sorts of miracle creams and vitamins. You name it, I’ve tried it! I lost all hope of having them back and resorted to shading them in everyday.I started to resent the decisions I made as a teenager and came to the conclusion that the situation I was in couldn’t be it. There just had to be answer to this very common problem.

This is when I discovered micro blading. I was fascinated by this beauty cosmetic procedure.
However, being the skeptic that I am, I was a bit hesitant at first. After all, this latest cosmetic exercise was a permanent one and there would be no turning back. Besides, this is my face we talking about and this would ultimately be a lifetime choice.

I did tons of research online and even included a few visits to various cosmetics houses to gain as much insight into this procedure as possible. After all of this I finally made up my mind and decided that this is the route I wanted to take. The company that won me over was Powderpuff/Lisl Boshoff, situated in Strand, Cape Town – South Africa. I have followed her for months and have read numerous client reviews. I really appreciated the fact that she posted her work on her site for potential clientele to view her skills.
When I met with her, she explained briefly that micro blading is a form of tattooing, with a 3D effect to give the illusion of hair strokes..

The procedure including consultation was approximately 2 hours. The longest part of the session was waiting for the aesthetic to numb the brow area. You do not feel a thing – it literally feels like someone is drawing lines on your eye brow area. It is generally recommended that you come back in 6 weeks for a touch up, thereafter it should last you between one and two years depending how you manage your brows with the aftercare instructions. It takes approximately 5-10days to heal, and once the scabs fall off, you ready to go.

Prices range between R1700 to R3000.I can honestly say that I am extremely happy with the end results and definitely recommend this procedure to any person lacking eyebrow’s…like I did 
