If you have been following along on Instagram (and I hope you are), you probably know that back in October I got my eyebrows microbladed. I went for my touch up session 6 weeks later in November. Now that I am totally healed and adjusted, I thought it was time to share my experience. Today I am here to deliver everything you need to know about microblading in general as well as specifically who to see if you are local here in Tulsa.
Everything You Need to Know About Microblading in Tulsa
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo on your eyebrows to mimic hair. It either fills in your hair or creates an eyebrow for you if you don’t have hair. Microblading lasts anywhere from 1-3 years depending on your skin.
What is the microblading process?
There is a beauty highlight on my Insatagram where I took you all along for each step of my service! I asked Becca (more on her next) all your questions, and she answered. I am recapping everything below.
- Consult – discuss shape you want and draw it on
- Apply numbing cream
- Select color together
- Actual microblading
- Healing – darkest at first, lightens by day 10, color returns by day 21. You will receive specific aftercare instructions from Becca. I had NO scabbing. I had some flaking of dry skin.
- Touch up 6-8 weeks later where you repeat steps 1-5 again
Where did you get your microblading done in Tulsa and how much does it cost?
I went to Becca Fuller of Beauty by Becca, and I cannot recommend her more! She is cosmetic tattoo artist and esthetician who is BBP certified. In Oklahoma, unlike some other states, you must be licensed and work under a doctor both. Be careful who you go to for this type service. I would recommend looking at Becca’s “Law License” highlight for more info if you are not local (or even if you are). The cost is $450 which includes the first service and touch up.
Why would you want to get microblading?
Good question? For me personally, I have a decent amount of hair, but it wasn’t very dark. I think your eyebrows shape your face and are the most important part of your makeup routine. If I did nothing else, I always filled in my brows. I knew getting microblading done would save me time on the regular. Additionally, try as I might, I could never get my brow shape exactly right on my own. Now, I have a shape to follow all the time. I never have to go in for waxing (though I didn’t do that before). I just tweeze on my own using my line. On a normal day, I do not fill in at all. I just use this brow gel to hold my actual hair in place.
Tips or suggestions?
Actually, if I could do anything over, I would go one shade darker in color. It is shocking when you first see the lines drawn on (see my highlight for proof) and then the color right after. That it when it is the darkest. Mine has faded as my skin flaked some and just as time has gone on. They look amazingly natural, and I love them. Don’t get me wrong. I just picked the lightest color out of fear of this being the first time I had ever done anything like it. I think if I were to do it over, I would go the next shade up. Becca was so kind and let me make all the decisions.
In the healing process, I did have some flaking. I think I might have used a little too much of the tattoo goo/balm. I think that might have made it worse too. Who knows!
Let me know if you have any questions I can answer for you.
