The Microblade method:

Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattoo/permanent make up (PMU). The term ‘microblading’ refers to the tool that is used – a pen like, hand held device with a number of tiny needles positioned together to form a ‘blade’. The Microblade is used to break (or 'scratch') the skin and implant pigment. No machine is used for this this method. Rachel uses this method to create individual hairstrokes giving a natural effect and helping to fill gaps. Please note that microblading is not suitable for all skin types – results are best on healthy and younger skin. Oily/porous/mature/thin skin is usually more suited to the machine method. 

The Machine method:

Rachel uses the machine method to create a 'powder' effect, whether that be soft or bold or something in-between. It is performed more like a traditional tattoo, using a machine with a vibrating needle(s) to implant the pigment. It is actually a more gentle method of PMU and good for delicate/mature skin. It is also a better option for oily skin. A natural effect can be achieved and can look similar to brow pencil/powder or a brow tint and 

  • Both methods are types of permanent make up (PMU). However results do fade over time and this depends on each individual’s skin and lifestyle factors. Top ups are required every 9-18 months to keep the colour fresh.

  • Rachel spends time with each individual to create brows that are bespoke to you. No two sets of brows are the same.

  • Results are always dependent on each individual’s skin, lifestyle factors and following the correct after care. 


  • In most cases a 6 week top up after the initial treatment is required to ensure the best possible results. This is included in the price of the initial treatment.
