Microblading is a form of a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup performed using, a manual (not a machine) disposable handheld tool, composed with very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade (we call it a microblade), to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin.
Having thin, uneven, or patchy eyebrows, can be challenging. Spending countless hours in front the mirror, feeling insecure, trying to fix them will make your head spin. Going out at night and worrying if they got smudged or out of place can make you feel hesitant and unsure.
That's why getting microblading at Salon Adair can be a life changing moment - it can put an end to this vicious cycle and liberate you from the chains of imperfect brows!
Each new hair stroke that is drawn by an MLA Master Artist is meant to simulate the client natural eyebrows hair and seamlessly blend it with the client existing brows to add color and fullness resulting in a very natural look. Our microblading process ensures that we design a customized shape, look, and feel that complements your face and your personality. With our experienced MLA Master Artists at the helm, the results will be gorgeous yet undetectable

The Healing Process
Taking care of your new brows after treatment is extremely important to how your eyebrows will look after they are fully healed and the longevity of your eyebrows.
Our MLA Master Artists created a masterpiece fused with your own natural beauty, as they were trained to do, but taking care of it afterwards is your responsibility so we highly recommend to follow these aftercare instructions methodically:
Keep clean and dry, do not touch your eyebrows! They may feel tender and appear a little red.
Brows will start developing a thin layer of scab, continue keeping your brows dry and clean.
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment on each eyebrow with a cotton swab and clean hands, spread a VERY THIN layer of the ointment across the treated area every morning and night.
Brows should not appear greasy, glossy or shiny, if so you used too much, as this can suffocate the skin and delay healing. Never apply ointment on wet or damp tattoo. Continue ointment until your brows are no longer scabbing.
Brows are safe from water. Client may return to normal skincare routines.
Brows will appear very light, after scabs comes off, every week up to 6 weeks color will continue to surface and brows will get darker again
Your brows are healed and you're feeling unstoppable!!!
Maintaining Your Brows
A new set of Microbladed eyebrows takes two appointments to complete and for that reason your 6-8 weeks touchup appointment is complementary. After the complementary appointment we recommend a yearly touchup to maintain the crispness and freshness of your brows. However, we do offer different touchup schedules because everyone experience the fading process differently and may need to get a touchup sooner than one year.
* All touchup prices are determined by calculating the time since your last paid appointment (which included any paid touchup appointment)
How long does it take to heal? What is the recovery time?
Brows will take about 4- 6 weeks until they reach their final look. But it only takes 2 weeks for scabbing process to complete. After 2 weeks you can return to normal routine and activities.
How often do I need a touchup?
We recommend yearly touch ups to keep the color fresh. It varies from client to client, but it can be 9 months to 2 years, depending on the client’s skin type and life style.
Who is suited for this procedure?
Clients with normal skin are perfect candidates for microblading, not too oily or sensitive. Our Master Artist will sometimes suggest Combo Brows for client’s with moderately oily skin and are oily skin clients are better suited for Powder Brows. Our Online Appointment Process will assess your eyebrows and skin by asking you a few questions and based on your answers it will recommend a certain technique (Microblading, Powder brows, or Combo brows) and artist best suited for you.
Who is not a candidate for microblading?
Anyone with oily skin. Oily skin will cause the hairstrokes to become thicker over time. The oil in the skin causes the pigment underneath the skin to disperse. If you suspect you have oily skin, we offer a consultation over email.
Just send us a photo of your skin without makeup at its normal level of oily-ness and one of our Master Artists will evaluate your skin and make their best recommendation. You can upload a photo on our contact page. Clients with oily skin are better suited for Powder Brows.
