Bold, natural eyebrows are back with a vengeance, and if the 90's marked you in any way you are still struggling (like myself) to grow them back from gruesome over-plucking.
Shaughnessy is the owner and HBIC at Studio Sashiko in Vancouver, Canada; where clients flock in to get their brows transformed from Payless to Prada in no time.
She’s honed a wonderful skill in tattooing hella realistic-looking brows using a process called microblading… and no that’s not the stencil-on BS they offer at your local nail salon.
I reached out to the Brow Queen with some questions I had about the procedure and was pleasantly surprised that she was happy to answer. Say goodbye to sharpie-esque eyebrows of the past, and allow me to introduce the work of Shaughnessy Keely...

Can we expect a similar sensation as getting a normal tattoo, or is it much different?
What is a normal session like?
How long do eyebrow tattoos usually last for?
Does micro-blading damage the hair follicle?
In the business of facial semi-permanency, you must experience many clients that get cold feet. How do you deal with it?
How many girls come in asking for the “Delevingne”?
