Visit our Graceful Lashes Beauty Lounge at 188 Owen St., Barrie, ON! Make an Online Appointment



Those with hair loss or lack of definition, thin brows caused by years of over-tweezing, those who have undergone chemotherapy or have been affected by alopecia, scars, lengthen/shorten or correct asymmetry, those with active lifestyles or for those who simply do not want to apply conventional makeup.



Furthermore to the traditional microblading technique the microshading is fantastic for clients who have sensitive or oily skin.

Combo Brow is a Mix of Both Brow Styles for the Most Flawless Finish!

Microblading (hair stroke technique) and Microshading (ombre / powdered brow technique) is a less invasive form of permanent makeup and the most innovative and natural looking semi-permanent tattoo to define your brows and face.

Graceful Lashes pigment is a non-toxic and metal additive free blend so you will not fade into those un-natural colours.

Clients undergo a full consultation where they are in full control of the colour being chosen as well as shape. The technician learns intense colour theory that they will apply to help the client understand skin tone along with proper hair colour for them. Every colour is custom blended by the technician and ok’d by the client for their individuals' needs before the microblading or microshading procedure begins.

Technicians are fully trained in not just colour theory but also designing the shape of the eyebrows. They learn extensively face shapes, facial symmetry and mapping and measuring out the perfect brow using the Brow Quad Ratio. Only a technician with extensive knowledge of the face as a whole will get a perfect shape and keep facial harmony each and every time.



How Can I Prepare for My Appointment?

1. No alcohol for 24 hours

2. Do not book within 4 days prior to 4 days after your menstrual cycle as you will be much more sensitive

3. No Botox for 2 weeks before and 4 weeks after

4. Avoid laser and chemical peels 2 weeks prior to the appointment

5. Do not take blood thinners for 72 hours prior to the appointment unless medically necessary

6. No waxing tanning or tinting 3 days prior to the appointment

7. Arrive with no makeup to the appointment

8. Be prepared for your brows to look a little red and dark after the procedure

What Type of Pigments Do You Use?

We use a non-toxic and metal additive free pigments that will fade over time into a lighter version of their true colour - they will not fade into greens, pinks, blues etc.

Will the Eyebrow Microblading Fade?

Yes, it is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo so on average you will get 18-24 months before needing to re-do the eyebrow microblading. Microshading will fade within 2-3 years. However, the initial appointment is not complete without a 4-6 week touch up as the brows will fade much faster without this appointment that promotes the longevity of the microbladed eyebrows.

Can I Have This Procedure if I Have an Auto-Immune Disease?

Unfortunately no as your immune system is prone to being lower and can sometimes interfere with the healing process.

Can I Get Microbladed if I am Pregnant?

No, unfortunately, we can not microblade anyone who is pregnant under any circumstance it is for your and babies safety but we'd be happy to help after!

Are There Any Side Effects?

Your brows may be slightly swollen, red and in rare cases bruised; however, rare it is considered a normal side effect. You can use a gel ice pack 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for 1 hour to alleviate any discomfort. These side effects will subside within 24-48 hours.


48 Hour Cancellation/Reschedule Policy or Client will be charged 50% of the service cost. Credit Card is required to hold any booking.
