Now HERE's a FUNNY one... REGARDING BOTOX & DERMAL FILLERS:PLEASE DON'T GO GET INJECTIONS AFTER GETTING PERMANENT EYEBROWS, AND THEN BLAME ME FOR THEM BEING CROOKED. (Can I get an LOL here?) The natural (or enhanced) shape of your brows should be taken into consideration PRIOR to injecting. The injector should be ARTISTIC enough, to be able to balance the muscular structure with your natural (or new) brow placement.
WHEN THINGS DON'T GO AS PLANNED... This happens in your life as well as mine. So if things ever get stalled, I will be patient with you and I hope you will be patient with me, as well as with the person in my chair who may be having trouble making decisions - or - in some cases, their skin may be less cooperative than what I would like it to be... . Also, we live in a huge hectic city and we all have lot's of things pulling on us. From traffic, to family and those last minute things that jump up and bite us...
Whatever the reason might be, it is best to schedule your appointment on a day where you are more flexible with time. And if you end up having to wait, please be patient, because I promise to be just as patient and attentive, when it's your turn to sit in my chair.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
By the way... :)
I WANT TO SAY A BIG "T H A N K Y O U" TO ALL CLIENTS, past and future... ...who allow me to post their photographs on line... And also to those who allow me to show their photos in the privacy of my office. Because without you guys, I would have nothing to display at all!
PAIN CONTROL I will do my best to keep you very comfortable with a numbing process that takes about 15-30 minutes, prior to the procedure. While your skin is numbing, I will use that time to set up for your session, and then we will go through an extensive design process. Once you say you LOVE the design, I will gently start the process.
an appointment, please schedule your appointment on-line.

YOU HAVE READ the MOST IMPORTANT PAGES and you UNDERSTAND that PERMANENT MAKEUP IS A PROCESS that may only take one session to complete or it may take many - depending on many variables that are covered on this website.
YOU ARE PREPARED TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE the FREE ALLERGY TEST. Testing helps determine potential reactions. Most people are NOT allergic, but we never know who will be. So if you would like to take advantage of this complimentary test... you must schedule your consult and test at least 5 days PRIOR TO the actual procedure. SPECIFY OPTION A or OPTION B (above).
BE SURE TO READ ON, there's a lot to learn to prepare you for a satifying experience. I'm looking forward to the opportunity of helping you!
Well, if you DON'T get permanent makeup, you will surely be stuck with plain! (insert chirping crickets here...) I'm just playing... but really, there is nothing to worry about (if things are done right...) Because NO PERMANENT MAKEUP makeup, you’re going to look “better” than you would, if you had no makeup on at all. And that feels pretty good on those days when you don’t have time to apply make up ...or just don't feel like it.
Permanent or Semi-Permanent? Honestly, It’s ALL considered permanent because it will not smear or wash off, but some techniques are applied more superficially, creating softer and more natural looking results, while others are darker and longer lasting. The down side of the softer approach, is that it fades faster than traditional tattoos. The downside to the darker application is that it can look too harsh and ...fake.
Great Candidates for permanent makeup include . . .
Women allergic to traditional cosmetics.
Those who have lost motor skills, and can no longer apply their own makeup.
Busy Professionals, who have limited time.
Women with oily skin who struggle to keep their makeup in place.
Athletes, gardeners, swimmers who want to look good, but not totally made up.
Men and women who have facial scars, especially in the brow area.
People with other scarring due to injury or post surgical scarring.
Women who have had mastectomies or breast augmentation surgeries.
YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKEUP IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, NURSING A BABY OR HAVE DIABETES...
MY PERSPECTIVE ON PERMAMENT COSMETICS... There's a very fine line between too much and just enough permanent makeup.... the problem is, that line is different for EVERY CLIENT. So, it is MY job, to find that line... without creating permanent problems - ON YOUR FACE. It can be tricky... every procedure is experimental because we never know exactly how things will turn out. But if we go following
Every client has different skin types. Young skin with a fine and smooth texture may look better than someone with aged skin. Oily skin may heal differently than dry skin, etc...
Every client has a different metabolism, and will process each color differently.
Every client heals at different rates. Faster healers generally do better because the pigment get covered with new skin more quickly, allowing less release of color.
Some are on medications that slow down healing.
SMOKERS may not heal as well as others due to carbon monoxide that blocks oxygen to cell.
MEDICATIONS AND NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS: Some can benefit the process, while others may impede it.
So you see, there is really no way to tell how successfully a person will heal and how much pigment each person will retain. For this reason, there CAN BE NO GUARANTEES... So I approach each treatment with reasonable caution and I treat each process as experimental, because it is.
BROWS AND SCAR CAMOUFLAGE vs OTHER PERMANENT COSMETICS... ALL PERMANENT MAKEUP IS A PROCESS! And taking baby steps always makes for softer, more beautiful results in the end. Especially true for BROWS and PARAMEDICAL procedures as they require a little more artistic skill to make things look realistic. Eyeliner and Lips can be applied more dramatically at the first session.
PRICE SHOPPING:CHEAP WORK IS RARELY GOOD ~ GOOD WORK IS NEVER CHEAP. So before settling on price alone, please make sure that the person who is about to tattoo permanent marks on your FACE, can actually DRAW. If you're not sure if they can... Just ask them to draw a set of brows on paper to show their style of drawing. If they can't, that is a good indicator that the artistic skill set is lacking. Be careful. Because if you are not happy, you'll end up with regrets and a new bill for corrections.
But at the same time... I do understand money does not grow on trees. If you feel that you can't afford high quality work. I am happy to offer CARE CREDIT. So soon, you too can end your war with shifting brows, smeared eyeliner and vanishing lips! Just imagine how great it is going to feel, to be in REALLY GOOD HANDS - and to also be free from those worries.
AND JUST SO YOU KNOW... One reason my prices are higher than some places is that I DON'T HERD PEOPLE IN AND OUT... I work with you until you are HAPPY! Because of this, I need to schedule less procedures in a day than most other people. This way, I can spend more time per procedure, which NORMALLY allows for everything to run smoothly.
FREE ALLERGY TESTING: ALLERGIC REACTIONS can happen at any time to anyone. They may show up immediately following a procedure - or at any point in the future. Even if you've had previous tattoos, permanent makeup and even if you have never had any other skin reactions. Testing just shows us if you will be "immediately" affected, and in no way indicates that you will always be free from an allergic reactions.
ALLERGY TESTING IS ALWAYS RECOMMENDED for your safety! But the truth allergic reactions are extremely rare. Problem is hile extremely rare, So if you want to minimize potential issues, and decide that you want the test, you must schedule a separate date for testing (a minimum of 5 days) prior to your procedure for results to appear. THIS TEST IS STILL NOT A GUARANTEED CONCLUSION that you will not develop an allergy, months or even years You may decline the test and proceed with the procedure immediately after your consultation, if you choose to.

Back in April of 2014... Freeman of CHANNEL 2 NEWS to do a segment on MicroHair Simulation. It was a great experience, and brought light to a much needed process to help men and women who are struggling daily with hair loss.
FOR MEN: I ONLY recommend Micro Hair Simulation if you are looking for a clean shaven look, as shown above. For men you should know, that there is NO WAY to make tattooing look like your natural hair, if you don't keep it shaved, or at least 1-3 days growth. Even the BEST attempts will not be as flattering as a bald look. I DO NOT PERFORM HAIR SIMULATION FOR MEN WHO ARE NOT COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING A BALD LOOK.
FOR WOMEN: If you are suffering from mild hair loss, this process will help you appear to have fuller hair, by applying some color on the scalp, it reduces the reflection of light through thinning hair. Again, if your hair loss is significant, this might not be the best procedure for you.
I hope you find the answers to all of your questions here and get a sense of relief, knowing that permanent makeup CAN look great.
feeling. I will always tell you the truth... Like this: If you're looking for absolute perfection, I'll say that's probably an unrealistic goal - especially if you expect too much, too fast. You just can't rush this process... and expect perfection. But with time and patience, I know how beautiful it can be when I am allowed to perform a layering process that takes place over a period of a few months. Most people need to heal for at least I am confident, that together, we will create something beautiful! You will never experience a solid, fake looking filled in look. Each stroke will be deliberately placed, just as an artist would do when creating a realistic looking piece of art!
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NATURAL LOOKING HAIR PROSTHETICS SYSTEM, KNOWLES HAIR & WELLNESS
Something else to know is this... Regardless of the procedure are you are interested. It all boils down to this. I am an artist, and your SKIN is my canvas. But it's not paper! It's a living, breathing, moving organism, and there are going to be reactions, to one degree or another! It may be 100% favorable or it may need EACH PROCEDURE IS BASICALLY EXPERIMENTAL and it could take multiple sessions to complete. The higher the expectations, the mores sessions it may take. I try to make everything look as real and natural as possible. I almost always use multiple colors to custom blend pigments in with your specific skin tone, and I will be keeping your personal preferences in mind the whole time...and, you will have a mirror at your request just for your own piece of mind.
Just as some artists allow their paintings to dry some between the layers... I do the same with your skin. It's called the healing process.
You should KNOW IN ADVANCE that multiple follow-up sessions are recommended in order to produce the most realistic results. So there are NO SURPRISES!
There is an artist for every style... so my style may not be the best choice for your needs. But the clients that I want to attract, are those who need semi-permanent makeup, without looking tattooed. They value true artistry. By "value", I mean to have an understanding that I am not operating a BROW MILL where you are moved in and out, just to get to the next person. I, along with anyone I work with, will WORK HARD to create a look, that not only fits your face... we want them to take your appearance to a whole new level.
Hello World! So what's new with YOU? Did you see Dominique's eyebrow videos? Well, I am happy to say that the response has been thrilling! And I would like to apologetically admit, that it's also been somewhat overwelming... So it's possible that I've missed a call or text, here or there. If that was you, please try me back! I think we are better prepared now to answer your inquiries in a more timely manner!
You can alway book your consultation class & your appointments on-line (see outline to the right).
Just know, that I strive to give each client the same amount of care and attention, and I’m extremely excited that you chose me to be your artist!! I cannot wait to give you the beautiful results you desire.
Just ANOTHER head's up... My calendar has run away with itself! I'm currently booked solid for several months in advance now. So, in order for ME, to help YOU, I would appreciate it very much, if you would first read over this website for answers to some of your basic questions. And remember... Most procedures take approximately 2 hours, but plan for at least 3 in case things aren't moving as fast as planned. I do take my time on each client.
PLAN AHEAD & AFTER CARE PAGES will teach you what you need to know to protect your investment and help ensure OPTIMAL RESULTS!
PRICING INFORMATION can be found on the link at the top of each page on this website. Please check there (before calling) to find out prices on all procedures.
IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE WITH ANYTHING, PLEASE LET US KNOW...
If you are seriously interested in having work done . . . I recommend that you click on the BOOK NOW button above and reserve at least 3 appointments. Scheduling these appointments in advance just reserves your spots on our calendar. This helps in planning your treatment, so that you don't end up having to wait too long for your next appointment!
NOTE: Scheduling followup sessions in advance, does not require you to come if you don't need to. You can always cancel or postpone (without penalty) a few weeks prior to the appointment, if you feel things are looking ok.
CONSULTATION CLASS - These classes are held every other Tuesday night at our office in the Galleria area. Attendance is recommended prior to procedure for an evening Questions & Answers and to receive an allergy test.
Plan to schedule AT LEAST one Follow-up sessions to give us the opportunity to make adjustments to your permanent makeup. Due to the conservative nature of our treatment, it's normal to need at least one. More followup adjustments will lend to a more realistic looking outcome.
For things to heal in with favorable results, PROPER AFTERCARE is important, as is your YOUR GOOD HEALTH. Good skin plays a major role in the whole the picture too. And IF YOU SMOKE or DRINK HEAVILY or have an auto-immune disorder, or are on medications, fish oils, or anything that thins your blood, it may take extra sessions to tweak things into perfection.
Next, it is very important to understand, that my approach to implanting color into skin is based on one FACT. We can always add more. SO PLEASE KNOW, IN ADVANCE, THAT MY APPROACH TO PERMANENT MAKEUP IS ALMOST ALWAYS, A CONSERVATIVE ONE!
What does this mean, exactly? It means that we AIM to err on the side of caution! It means that it's best if you also enter into our relationship, with patience and understanding that SLOW AND STEADY, WINS THE RACE... Sort of like how wedding cakes take a greater investment than a cake from the grocery store. And BMWs cost more than a Ford, for a reason! Instead of working too heavily to start, with the hopes of somehow fading BACK into perfection, why don't we just inch up to the finish line, instead!? With proper color or shape adjustments on subsequent sessions.
Does anyone ever heal in just right? Occasionally, but that's not the norm. Inevitably, some people will end up holding the short end of the stick with permanent makeup! You have to ask yourself which end you want to be holding, the TOO DARK end or the TOO LIGHT end? It's unfortunate, but we will probably never know (in advance) who WILL hold a lot of color and who will NOT. Either scenario could be YOURS! Which do you think is easier to adjust? So please, DO NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, if YOURS happens to be too light, because the cornerstone of our success, is from being conservative. So be sure you have, the patience that we have, and are willing to stick with the plan.
The reason that I have excelled in this field, is that I came into this profession with formal art training. I have a natural eye for color and symmetry and because of this, I am able to perform Permanent Cosmetics that DO NOT look like tattoos. There is a certain order, colors should be applied and doing it all at once, cheapens the look, in my opinion.
My goal, is to ONLY do realistic looking work, not PERFECT work. I find that TRUE PERFECTION, lies in the ability to add just the right amount of imperfection, to create something that does not attract a puzzling stare from others. This is especifically true of brows services.
Did the strokes stay light and crisp?
Did the strokes spread out? If so, how much?
Did the color stay warm?
Did the color heal in cooler than expected?
Did the strokes stay consistent, from beginning to end?
Once all of this data has been collected, I will create a new plan. I may use all the same colors as in the first session, or I may pick new ones to enhance or counteract the original colors. Because the bottom line here is, I can use the same color on 10 people who have similar skin tones. But each one will heal in with a unique look.
