Microblading: Four Things to Know 

Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa knows you might have a few beauty-mistakes in the early 2000s, trying to obtain Gwen Stefani’s penciled-like brows. Now that the style-pendulum has swung to full and thick brows, we can help correct old mistakes. Microblading is this decade’s biggest beauty blessing. It’s a service that allows even the most-plucked among us to have thick, full-looking brows.

1.) Not Unlike a Tattoo

Microblading isn’t unlike getting a tattoo. It’s a manual technique of depositing pigment into the skin with a tiny tiny needle. These fine little needles are what give the hair-like strokes effect. Also, microblading doesn’t deposit the ink as deep as traditional ink.

2.) It won’t stop your brow hair from growing

We get this one a lot. Folks are worried that if they get microblading, that their natural brow hair will stop growing, or it’ll come in patchy. Not the case. And actually, it’s been noted that microblading can stimulate hair growth.

3.) It’s all about the artist

Listen, there are times in your life when you can go with a service provider who might be cheaper and less experienced, but microblading isn’t it. Again, we’re talking about a tattoo on your forehead. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa’s microblading providers go through extensive education and training.

4.) After-Care is Vital

During your healing period you’ll have a few rules to follow. You’re not gonna want to apply any brow products or submerge your face in water fully. But just for a few days. After that, you’ll want to avoid the sun as much as possible (good idea anyways) and retinols. This will protect your brows from lighting up. It will speed up the life of your brows, requiring a sooner follow-up.

Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is team lumberjack, but our resident barbers are here to provide you with a few tips on taming the beast.Wanting to grow it out and afraid to trim?

Trimming your beard will ensure it grows out smooth and orderly. Tools of the Trade: You’re gonna need a few things to do this properly. Treat yo’ self.

1.) Wash it Out

Never start this process with a dirty beard. Try our PaiShai shampoo to get your face-locks in order.

2.) Brush it Out

Before you start clipping away, brush your beard out against the grain. This will allow you to see the crazy whiskers more clearly.

3.) Clip and Snip

You can either use your scissors or clippers, but you’re gonna tackle the strays first. Go with a larger guard on your clippers to start, so you don’t make a grave mistake.  If you’re looking to take some length off, use clippers and go with the grain (downwards on your face).

4.) Stache

Comb all of your mustache down over the top lip, and use clippers without a guard or scissors to cut anything that obstructs the lip. It’s an easy, no fail way to clean up your mustache.

5.) Comb and Style

If you’ve really taken some length off, give yourself a rinse. Then brush your hair back into place. While your beard is still wet, use a beard oil or balm for the finished look.
