ENVY ADD MICROBLADING TO SERVICE LIST

Envy are now offering Microblading .    

Micro-blading gently enhances clients’ natural features, giving them more confidence in their overall appearance.

The phenomenal eyebrow treatment is ideal for people who: aren't happy with their brow shape, have over plucked or loss of hair / patchy areas that won’t grow back (potentially due to nuclear medical treatments such as chemotherapy).

However, it doesn’t suit certain skin types:

  • Problem skin broken Capillaries
  • Acne
  • Moles within the brow
  • Keratosis
  • Seborrhoea Dermatitis
  • Previous brow tattoo of pigment is still saturated 
  • Very dry or peeling skin.

What happens in the Consultation?

A COMPULSORY patch test must be applied 24 hours before your microblading treatment.

An outline will be drawn by pencil, this way you get a feel for the shape and form.

We then conduct an in-depth photo analysis of your facial symmetry and features. This allows us to provide you with our expert advice on how to proceed forward with your selected style.

 

On the Treatment Day:

Your eyebrow area will be sterilised with hygienic pads and draw the brow form on to your skin. Again we take another picture so you can get a good picture of what's happening. The camera also shows up any defects in the design.

A Sterile disposable Micro-blading tool and blade (also disposable) are used during your procedure.

We only use EU regulated permanent makeup pigments for both quality and your safety. These are specially manufactured for Micro pigmentation.

 

How long does it last?

Microbladed eyebrows will last from 12 - 18 months depending on your skin type.

Does Microblading hurt?

Not at all. On a survey recently conduct in the UK, customers voted an average of 3 on a 1-10 pain scale.

 

Aftercare: Touch Ups

You will need to return for your touch up treatment no later than 6-12 weeks after treatment. 

Everyone’s skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment.  It is important to understand that this is a two part process and the second, Touch Up Treatment will complete the procedure and, after healing, you will see the finished result.   

Price:

£199 for initial treatment. 6 to 8 weeks later £50 for top up - £50 non refundable booking fee to secure appointment date (£50 taken off total price on appointment)

GUESS WHO'S BACK?!

HE'S COMING BACK!!

Envy are pleased to inform you that former RWY salon manager, Steve Dyer will be returning to ENVY from Tuesday 15th March 2016.

Envy RWY, currently are taking bookings for Steve, to make his return a busy one. He will be working Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Book now to secure your appointment 01752 251351.

Team Envy look forward to welcoming him back, and seeing all his friendly clients again soon.
 



INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

International Women’s Day. 

A celebration of women who continue to contribute towards social, economic, cultural and political achievement. 

The Duke of Cornwall hotel in partnership with Shekinah Mission, The Eddystone Trust and Trevi House, held an afternoon of cream tea and invited female business leaders to chat  informally to women who are supported by the charities. In the hope to gain an understanding to the challenges faced by vulnerable women in the city but also to inspire the women and help sow seeds around them gaining confidence to move forward in their lives. Tracie Gunningham attended - “I think talking informally over a cup of tea and a scone helps find mutual ground in regards to children, family life, and some difficult things that they may have encountered. It was definitely an eye opener for all parties involved”. 

“The support from the charities involved is fantastic to see. I was glad I could be of assistance, I wish everyone good luck for the future”

 

Envy supplied goodie bags containing KMS hair products and other treats for each attendee.
