MICROBLADING BY JULIE SHIPLEY
Imagine waking up every morning with flawless eyebrows that are the envy of others? This can be a reality with microblading by Julie Shipley Brow Stylist.
Not everyone is blessed with eyebrows like Cara Delevigne. Instead, microblading creates fuller, natural looking eyebrows and is the perfect treatment for people in the pursuit of correcting and perfecting over plucked, thinning or sparse eyebrows, or even those who have naturally good brows and just want more definition. With its precise application, microblading creates a super natural finish and delivers long lasting results.
I perfected my microblading skills at the K.B Pro Training Academy, the UK’s number one permanent cosmetics training facility and as a HD Brows Master Stylist, I have the very best skills, knowledge and experience to make sure your new eyebrows perfectly frame your face. I also use the hand held tool, which allows me to draw in detail on each brow to simulate real hairs for a flawless finish.
Every microblading treatment is a three part process that’s completed in two separate appointments.
Here I’ll talk to you in detail about the look that you are trying to achieve and what I recommend is right for you, from the shape to the colour. The consultation is very much a two way street, where I listen to what look you’d like to have and advise you the best way to do this.
Once I know what style and shape of eyebrow you want, I then draw the brows on with makeup pencil. This can be redone and adjusted as many times as you wish, as I want to make sure that you’re completely happy with what your brows are going to look like before we begin the treatment. Every eyebrow shape, colour and intensity is matched individually to you, based on your facial features, preferences and to perfectly blend with your existing hairs.
Pre treatment advice
You will achieve much better results if you properly prepare for your Microblading procedure. The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive and non-irritated.
Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, it is advised that you do not make social plans for the same day.
Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to 10 days.

Using only the best industry tools and methods, the microblading treatment involves me creating tiny precision hair-like strokes by hand that mimic the appearance of natural hairs. In doing so, pigment is implanted into the skin by the microblades and the sensation is similar to a light scratch. But don’t worry, as numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to the treatment meaning there’s minimal discomfort. A microblading treatment cannot be rushed and I take the time that’s needed to leave you with beautifully defined, realistic looking and fuller eyebrows. An average microblading treatment by me from my home based salon in Longridge, Preston, is between 2-3 hours.
Once complete, I will take you though how to care for your new brows. As with any permanent makeup treatment, the eyebrow may look up to 50% darker in colour than what was chosen during the consultation, but rest assured that this will soon fade to your chosen colour. It is also completely normal for your eyebrows to flake or peel during the early stages. I provide every client with the best aftercare products and advice on how to care for your new eyebrows to make sure the ends results are fantastic.
A second appointment is needed around six weeks after your first treatment to add more pigment into the brow area. As the eyebrows heal after the treatment, some areas of the brow may not hold all the pigment meaning that you may have some patches that need more colour. This is completely normal as everyone heals differently. Whatever the level of retouch you need, I make sure every clients comes back to the salon for their complimentary top up to make sure they have perfect eyebrow results. Microblading usually lasts between 12-18 months depending on your skin type and I always recommend returning to my salon for an annual colour boost to keep your new brows looking fabulous.
Surface healing time usually takes up to 10 days to complete, although each individual will react differently. If you are feeling less than 100% healthy, it may take longer to heal and symptoms can appear more prominent. Proper care following your treatment is necessary to achieve the best results.
My clients have so many different reasons as to why they come to me for microblading treatments, such as:
- To save time filling in their brows each morning
- Medical reasons such as alopecia, hairloss or chemotherapy
- The brows don’t smudge or smear off – great for those with an active lifestyle!
- It’s completely safe and virtually painless
- It delivers natural looking eyebrows that makeup often cannot achieve
