The blade and shade gives you a 3D effect we call this a combination brow which leaves hair strokes within your brow to give you a softer appearance. This brow is fantastic if you have over plucked at the base of your brow and want more definition then just microblading. This procedure will always fade down to 30-40%.

Are you certified?
Yes, I am a certified semi-permanent makeup artist and insured. I have attended many training courses and received plenty of certificates from many semi-permanent makeup and tattoo artists that have perfected only the best Microblading techniques and training, my clinic is licensed to tattoo by the local council and insured by Babtac.
Will it look natural?
The technique used at the white house clinic creates realistic, simulated hair strokes that look just like real hair It’s important you choose the right artist that can give you this realistic 3D look. Your brows can be as big and bold or as soft and subtle as you like!
How long does it last?
This will vary by client. If aftercare instructions are followed correctly, your new brows will last approximately 12-18 months. For some people, their brows will last even longer. Certain factors such as sun exposure, getting chemical peels, oily skin type, etc. will affect whether your brows will last on the higher or lower end of the expected 12-18 months. Also, some clients really prefer a fresh, bright look. Those clients opt to come in for Colour Boosts every 12 months instead of waiting for their brows to completely fade.
What is the healing process?
Some swelling and tenderness after the procedure is normal and may last a day or so, depending on the client. Your new brows will appear DARKER, WIDER, AND SHARPER than the way they will heal. This is especially true for days 2-5. This is harder for some clients than others. Clients who rarely wear makeup may find that they don't like how their brows look on these days because they are too intense. That's normal! The pigment is sitting on top of the skin and has not yet settled into your face. As your skin heals over the tattoo, your brows with lighten and soften. This process takes about 7 days or so on average. It’s important to follow all after care instructions and to attend the required follow up appointment to make the finishing touches to your new brows! Your healing is only about 50% in my control. Once you leave it's up to you to be strict about following the instructions you're given to get the best result! And no matter how great they look, it's important to come for your touch up appointment to get the final result
How is Microblading different than a traditional eyebrow tattoo?
The most common type of traditional eyebrow tattoos involves the use of a tattoo gun and a block style brow, which leaves the client with a dark outlined eyebrow and no depth. These often fade to really unflattering colours. Microblading by the white house clinic leaves the client with crisp, thin lines that look identical to real hair. Careful selection of pigment is chosen to give depth and shape so that the natural brows and Microbladed strokes blend seamlessly.
Are there some clients who cannot retain the pigment?
We are pleased to announce this year we are offering gift vouchers, you can pay for an amount towards a procedure or the whole procedure, once we have received payment, you will have recorded delivery to your home address or collection from the clinic.
Can I buy a gift voucher?
Yes, this does happen. Some people have highly effective immune systems that reject the pigment, and some just have highly effect skin healing. It's very rare, but it's important that all clients understand this is a possibility and in most cases, there is no way for us to know if this will take place prior to the work being done. Rarely, I will recommend a third appointment to further touch the brows up if the client is retaining some pigment after the first touch up, however anything beyond that would likely be too much for the skin and the client would likely not be a candidate for further Microblading.
can my poorly tattooed eyebrows be fixed?
In most cases you can, however your expectations need to be realistic as results are not always comparable to a fresh, new brow procedure. Poorly shape, unnatural colour brows need to be corrected.
can I wear makeup after?
We advise not to wear brow make up after the procedure until the skin has healed as this may cause an infection and hinder the healing process, you can wear face make up to your brow but please be careful you have no contact with the brow, we advise a good make up brush.
what if I’m on medication- will this affect my results?
There is some medication that are contra- indicated, it is vitally important to let us know and we can discuss it with you.
do you advertise?
No – all of our clients come from word of mouth, we feel very lucky and always 4 months booked ahead. This is a very good sign when booking in for your brows, getting in next week is not unless through a cancellation- we take great care in the quality of brow given so only so many brows will be carried out throughout the day and we always give ourselves a break.
who have you trained with?
Zara has been on over 10 training courses, this is following her decade of working in hair loss industry, she has very high standards so will choose very carefully and never goes cheap. She will be a trainer by the end of this year to share and train to her standards. .
what if the style or trend changes?
If you are a true professional you will not do anything too trendy, we measure the brows for your face measurements, this will show you where your brow should be placed, we do not aim to take any hair or too much away as this is why you are coming to us, colour is always chosen very carefully together for your skin and hair tones.
how soon after the procedure can I go out?
Immediately! As mentioned the colour will appear a little darker than required for the first few days, the aftercare lotion we give you can leave a shine to the brow but nothing scary
does it look natural?
Semi permeant make up should always look natural, the brow should sit where it should, blend in with your hairs and fit within your brow pattern.
what are the risks of infections?
At all times, I’ve achieved the strictest sterilisation procedures. We only use sterile and disposable, disposable needles- which are opened in front of each client and are used for your complete safety.
