FO U S based on client’s skin tone. “Every brow is done custom, I don’t use a stencil,” said Lerbakken, who has had her own eyebrows, eyeliner and lips enhanced. A numbing agent is applied to the brow area. Lerbakken then dips the microblade into the pigment color and hand draws each hair stroke on to the skin. Powder also can be used on the eyebrows rather than mimicking hair strokes. Powdered brows, Lerbakken said, provide a soft, natural, finished look. “I leave as much of your natural brow hair as possible. My personal style is to use your natural shape as a guide and enhance it.” Eyes also may be enhanced with per- manent eyeliner pigment that is tapped into a client’s skin. Lip tinting, where pigment is added to the lips, giving them more definition, also is popular. “It’s not lipstick, but it gives your lips a natural tint,” she said. Most of Lerbakken’s clients chose the procedures to enhance their beauty. She also has several clients who have their eyebrows constructed because of medical issues they have that cause hair loss. Clients may see some redness after a microblading procedure, and puffiness, tenderness and redness from the eye liner and lip enhancements. Because of the irritants clients must avoid wearing mascara and eye shadow for a week. “The initial healing period is around seven-10 days, and a complete healing is over the course of six weeks,” she said. Each procedure takes two hours, varies from $250 to $475 and lasts 12-24 months depending on the individual. Clients also may return for color boost to redefine the intensity of their coloring. For Wilson, her microblad- ing was money well spent. “They are amazing,” she said of her new brows. “When I have pictures I have eye- brows again,” she said. kim.schmidt@kearneyhub.com @HubChic CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 YOU ... BETTER: Lerbakken’s clients say her treatments are money well spent Brittany Lerbakken courtesy ALLYSON WILSON, 29, of St. Paul is being prepped for her microblading procedure. From top left to right, the micro- blading procedure begins by first temporarily mapping out the eyebrows with a template that allows clients to see how their brows will look with their face shape. A numbing agent is applied to the brow area, then the microblade is dipped into the pigment color and each hair stroke is hand drawn onto the skin.
