At Beautissima, we believe Eyebrows are the unsung heroes of beautiful faces. Perfectly arched and positioned brows give your eyes definition, your face balance, they define your features and can even make you look younger.
But unfortunately, we never really appreciate our eyebrows until they've gone.
We've all made mistakes. Getting over-enthusiastic with tweezers is one of the pitfalls of youth that we pay for with eye pencils in later life. Others may have lost brows due to alopecia, chemotherapy, injury or just through the ageing process. Some of you may simply feel your brows could be more symmetrical.
Whatever your reasons, Beautissima is here to help you restore your brows to their full potential.

The treatment in detail:
A Permanent Eyebrow treatment is a three-part process that is usually completed in two appointments. This consists of an initial consultation, the treatment itself and a follow-up appointment, all of which are included in the price quoted and are listed in detail below:
Megan Fox, Cheryl Cole, Twiggy or somewhere in between? The Beautissima process starts with a thorough one-to-one consultation. You can either keep your consultation separate from your treatment or, as most clients prefer, you can combine it with your treatment.
You will be asked about the look you want and your reasons for considering Permanent Make-Up; whether it's a fresh face for the school run, a polished look for work or a more dramatic transformation to match your hectic social life. Subtle or celebrity glamorous – it's your choice. Whatever your reasons, you can expect the same expert opinion and honest advice before you commit to any treatment.
All the options will be talked through and the whole process explained, as well as going through a few essential health checks, so you're completely comfortable before starting your treatment. Your trip to Beautissima should be an enjoyable experience so we'll do everything to make it feel that way.
Once a decision has been made, Mellissa will draw on your brows with a make-up pencil and won't start the tattooing process until you are totally happy.
Using a specialist low frequency tattooing machine, Mellissa will gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. There should be little discomfort felt, although you may feel small 'vibrations' as she works. The treatment takes about two to two and a half hours and you will be given breaks should you need them. Initially, the colour of your eyebrows will appear 40%-50% darker than the pigment chosen but this will fade within 7-10 days.
The next part of the treatment is a follow-up appointment which is usually 6-12 weeks after your initial treatment. The reason for this second appointment is to go over the treated area to add more pigment because after healing takes place, there is the possibility that one or two areas might not have held the pigment as well as the rest.
How long does it last?
As the name suggests, permanent cosmetics won't wash off at the end of the day, week or year, however the amount of time it lasts varies from person to person dependent on various different factors such as: skin characteristics, use of certain medication, natural skin undertones, personal pH balance of skin (which can vary from visit to visit), diet, alcohol intake and smoking and post treatment care. The intensity of the colour will fade as your skin regenerates, which is why we strongly advise that you come back to Beautissima for a Colour Boost roughly every 6-18 months to restore colour intensity. As Mellissa says "it's important to remember that Permanent Make-Up is a low maintenance not a no maintenance treatment". This is a good thing because as we age, our preferences change and trends change. Over time your permanent cosmetics can change with you.
How long does the treatment take?
A Permanent Make-Up treatment takes between 2-3 hours.

Whether your brows are overgrown or over plucked, HD Brows can sculpt them into the perfect shape for your face and transform the way you look and feel about yourself.
What are HD Brows?
As a HD Brows Master Stylist Mellissa has reached the pinnacle of the HD Brows qualifications enabling her to perform and perfect the latest brow trends including brow lightening, ombré effect, brushed up brows and advanced facial waxing techniques.
To start your HD treatment, Mellissa will begin with an in-depth consultation to discuss the size, shape and look you want before beginning work on your bespoke brows.
Custom-blended colour is then applied and whether Mellissa darkens, lightens or simply tones the natural colour of your brow hair, she’ll ensure your new brows complement your look, and your style. From there, Mellissa will use the HD Brows exclusive brow mapping formula to design your unique shape before using a combination of hair removal techniques to create it. Finally your brows will be perfected using the HD luxury make-up collection.
And don’t worry if there isn’t enough hair to create your perfect arch immediately, Mellissa will put you on a re-growth programme and work with you every step of the way to achieve the perfect brow for you.
How long does it last?
The length of time your results will last depends on how quickly your hair grows back and how well your hair holds colour. On average you will need them done every 4-6 weeks.
How long does the treatment take?
HD isn't just a brow shape, it's the ultimate brow experience; it takes around 45 minutes - so sit back and relax while Mellissa works her magic.
I've over-plucked my brows. Can I still have HD Brows?
Yes - hope isn't lost! Mellissa can put you on a re-growth programme that will train your brows into shape over a course of visits. To speed up your re-growth and make your brows look better between visits, there are HD Brows products that will stimulate growth and make your eyebrows appear fuller and more defined. Whether it’s soft and subtle or a more dramatic brow look you’re after – Mellissa will recommend the right product for you.
Can I choose a shape?
Absolutely. Eyebrow shapes are tailored to the individual as they have to suit your look and personality. Your brows can be made dark or light, thick or thin, sharp or soft. Your input is important in deciding the best shape and look for you. Mellissa will consider your hair growth, look, colouring and face shape when deciding on your brow design.
Who needs it?
Anyone looking for truly beautiful eyebrows.
