Hair Unlimited offers microblading services. Microblading is a type of semi-permanent tattooing for your eyebrows, which creates a long-lasting and natural appearance of fuller brows. The look is created with very fine needles that make hair-like strokes of natural-looking color through your brows. Microblading pigment lasts from one to three years before it’s fully and safely metabolized out of your skin.
Our microblading artist is trained and licensed by the State of Maine. She’ll work with you to create the brow shape and texture that best works with your face and hair color. The procedure is done safely in a hygienic environment with sterile tools and new needles. Once it fades, you can return for touch-ups to maintain the look of beautiful brows for years.
Microblading service: $300
