My Eyebrow Microblading Experience at Jonelle’s Brows
”I am SO happy with the results! Microblading, a semi-permanent tattoo technique, is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, or fill-in over plucked brows. Before it begins, a topical numbing cream is applied. I felt only minor discomfort at times & there’s no down time. Jonelle has been in the beauty industry for 20+ years, including the account coordinator/trainer for Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is very easy on the hand – you can always go back and add in what is necessary, but you can’t take away! Great prices and amazing references. Mention Jen’s List. Call 818-448-3805.”
