Previously Tattooed:

Clients that have work done by other artists need to contact Ally before booking an appointment. A picture of your brows can be sent via email or text (949.929.9478)  in order to evaluate how much pigment you have remaining. Not all previously tattooed clients are good candidates for Powder Brows.

What are Powder Brows?

Powder Brows are permanent tattoo using a  powder "look" technique which implants pigments into the epidermis/dermis layer. Results are lighter in color at the front of the brow and gradually get darker towards the end of the tail which resembles a make up look. This technique is achieved with a tattoo machine and needle.​ The end result can be very light and subtle to more filled in and darker makeup look.

Can anyone have Powder Brows done?​

Powder Brows or Ombre Powder is an ideal option for all skin types, unlike Microblading (as long as the skin is healthy and acne free)

You cannot receive Powder Brows if you are:

  • Pregnant/breastfeeding

  • Currently using Accutane, or have used Accutane within the past year

  • Have a fresh tan or sunburn on your face

  • Are on blood thinning medications 

  • Have rosacea on your face

  • Are currently undergoing cancer treatment

  • Must be off Chemo or Radiation for 6 months

  • Botox/Fillers - has to be done at least 30 days prior to appointment

  • Antibiotics - has to be stopped at least 30 days prior to appointment


Contact Ally if you are under the care of a physician to see if you qualify. A doctor's note may be needed.​

What factors will affect Powder Brows?

  • Sun Exposure: Increased exposure to the sun will cause premature fading

  • Age and Metabolism. The faster your metabolism the faster the pigment will fade

  • Excessive Bleeding: Excessive bleeding during your procedure will greatly affect how your body retains pigment. While this is not entirely in our control, it is important that you follow pre care instructions to help minimize bleeding. This includes avoiding blood thinning medications, alcohol, and caffeine at least 24 hours before your procedure.


How long do the brows last?

The procedure is semi-permanent and your results last approximately 1 - 3 years, depending on your skin type, beauty products and environmental factors. Powder Brows is typically a 2 step procedure with the initial appointment and the touchup session around  8-12 weeks later. This ensures that the color is locked in and doesn't leave the skin completely. 

How is the shape determined?

During your first session (approximately 2.5 hours), Ally will custom design your brow shape using a brow mapping method based on your bone structure, eye placement, face shape, and desired look. 


Do I need to wax or trim my eyebrows before my appointment?

No, it is not necessary or recommended for a client to get rid of any natural hair she may already have. Ally works with your eyebrow hair so please no waxing or tweezing before your appointment.


Does it hurt?

For most clients, there isn't pain associated, but rather discomfort at times. Once Ally does the outline and first pass, a gel epinephrine is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. Most of Ally's clients are able to relax and snooze away.


What is the precare for my appointment?

  • Do: Please fill in your eyebrows as you normally would so we can see what you are used to. Feel free to bring in photos of brows you love so we can get an idea of you brow goals.

  • Do: leave your brows as full as possible. Any shaping will be done during your session.


  • Do not wax, tweeze, or thread a minimum of 3 days before your appointment.​

  • Do not take Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, and Ibuprofen a minimum of 72 hours prior to their appointment. 

  • Avoid alcohol 48 hours prior to your appointment and limit caffeine 24 hours before

  • Avoid sun and tanning bed exposure for 30 days before and after your procedure. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the pigment with it which is not ideal for best results. 

Note: Plan any tropical vacations a minimum of 14 days after your procedure as you need to protect your new brows from the sun and water. 


What is the aftercare/at-home care like?

You will need to keep your brows extra clean.

  • You will gently wash them morning and night for 7 days with the cleanser provided. Make sure to wash outside of the shower with cold/warm water and only wipe in the direction of hair growth, no circles or hard rubbing. 

  • Use the brow balm 1x time daily & gently apply with a Q-Tip

  • Avoid hot showers for the first 7 days

  • No excessive sweating for 7 days

  • No sauna, hot tub, pool, ocean, etc for 7 days

  • Do not pick, rub, or scratch the new brows or peeling flakes and avoid sleeping on face till healed

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks

  • No anti aging or acne products on them ever (Retinol, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or other chemical exfoliants will cause fading)


What can I expect during the healing process?

Immediately after your first session your brows will appear bolder and sharper than what they'll actually heal as.


  • Day 1 - 3         Brows will be dramatically darker and seem a bit thicker due to the skin healing

  • Day 4 - 15       Brows will peel and seem very light 

  • Day 16 - 42     Brows will reappear and may be a bit patchy

After 6 weeks the brows will be completely healed and this is when we can perfect them with a Touchup Session.

For most clients, minimum of two treatments are usually needed, 8-12 weeks apart. At your touchup session, we will assess the color and retention and make adjustments if necessary. Touchups are not included in the cost of the initial procedure.


Powder Brow Results:
YOUR BROW GIRL does not guarantee healed results on anyone. The final result will vary from person to person. Makeup may still be required to give you the results you desire. At times, additional sessions after the first touch up are necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly after the first session, this is normal. We can easily go darker and add more saturation during your Touchup Session.


If you have any questions or concerns not answered in the FAQ, please feel free to call or message.
