What to expect in a 30 minute Microblading Consultation

Micro-blading & Micro-shading is the latest manual hair stroke method that can resolve any brow issue.  The best way to decide whether Micro-blading is for you is by booking a 30 minute consultation with a brow specialist.

This article is about what to expect in a Microblading consultation appointment at Haniye Artistry with me:

  • I will first determine your skin type.  This is an important aspect of  the Micro-blading treatment and will help me to assess whether Micro-blading, Micro-shading or a combination of both methods is the best fit. I will explain the possible outcome to you.
  • Together with you, I will design the perfect unique outline that will enhance the natural brow and eye shape. The eyebrow makeup will give you an opportunity to experience a non-permanent result for a day.
  •   The Micro-blading treatment process will be explained in detail.  You will know what to expect from the treatment such as the length of time it will take, the tools and technique involved and the approximate duration of the semi-permanent affect.

This 30 minute consultation and brow makeup is only $50 and is a great way to decide if semi-permanent brow enhancement is the right choice for you.  If you would like to experience a longer affect, a brow henna treatment can last up to 2 weeks.  This service can be booked as a separate appointment.  Eyebrows frame the eye and face providing a bright and youthful appearance.  It can take several minutes a day to achieve this look with a brow pencil and  can be an arduous and time consuming task each morning.  Treat yourself to a Brow enhancement today and reclaim those precious minutes.


Be “walk out the door” ready every moment!

Eyebrow Trends for 2019

Beauty trends are constantly changing whether it’s lips, cheeks, eyes or brows.  Eyebrows in particular have been evolving since the Millennium from thin and light coloured, half moon shape to bold, thick and arched.  Women of all ethnicities are interested in brows that frame the eye giving a more open, bright and lively appearance.  Especially for women who are very fair with naturally blonde pigment, it is essential to find a way to darken the brow and lash hairs.  This is no easy task though there are several beauty products that will provide a desired affect.  Cosmetic companies have developed brow pencils, powder and gel in various pigments that can deliver a temporary fix but there is a down side to these products.  First, it takes several minutes daily to apply brow products and to master the art of application.  Even with a steady hand and desired product a perfect brow application may start out great but not hold up throughout the day.  It may require reapplication!! This daily regimen of brow application can become tedious even for the most seasoned makeup diva!  Fortunately, there is a couple of other options that will deliver a semi-permanent affect well worth the effort and expense.  Eyebrow Henna and Micro-blading are 2 such treatments that are offered at Haniye Artistry.  Henna tattoo will last up to 2 weeks and Micro-blading will create an incredibly natural custom brow affect that will last up to 1 year.  If you are considering a semi-permanent eyebrow application Henna tattoo and micro-blading are 2 excellent options.  At Haniye Artistry our technicians are well educated and specialize in reconstructing, defining and covering imperfections and filling gaps in over-tweezed brows.  We also specialize in creating brows that have been lost through illness and cancer treatments.  You CAN have that brow shape and pigment that you weren’t born with!  If you have dreamed of a bold, full natural looking brow take a leap of faith and give it a try!  At Haniye Artistry we are ready to pamper you!  Give us a call at 250 590 5054 or book a consultation on-line at haniyeghajar.com

Getting Facial With Eyelash Extension, Yes or No?

how to protect your lash extension

Getting eyelash extensions can be pretty great, especially since they don’t fall out like regular falsies. They make your eyes look amazing and bring out the sparkling beauty of your eyeball, creating an illusion that they are bigger and sexier. A very good care of your new lash set is so important to increases the longevity.

Today’s question is “Does facials affect the retention of my lashes?”

I should say, Yes! Ladies, taking facials is a killer for your extensions life.  If you are like a lot of other women, then you go to the spa during the weekends or holidays to relieve your face of all that pent-up stress and damage caused by the sun, then make sure to protect your lash extensions from all those oil based products applying on your face. The problem with this however is that this can end up ruining your lashes leaving it all oiled up. Any kind of oil will dissolve the adhesive cause fast lash fall out.


Here is some recommendation! Ask your aesthetician to cover your eyes with a lint free cotton pad to avoid any oil splashing on them. Also it is very helpful if you cleanse your lashes with a lash cleanser if they show signs of oiliness after you have done the facial. This will prevent the oil from staying on the lash and dissolving the glue.


Don’t forget ladies that you aren’t supposed to get a facial right before or after your eyelash extension appointment. Coming to your lash appointment right after facial can ruin your lashes with the process. The oily lash surface doesn’t let the glue cure very well also your lash tech will have such a hard time to work on your oily eyes and lashes which delivers you not a flawless long lasting lash set. On the other hand, Doing facials right after your lash extension treatment will leave your lashes messed up with a poor retention so you need to book an urgent lash touchup appointment Which will cost you, right? It is better you do it two or three days before the process.


We care about you, your natural lash health and your extension retention. Please read our other blog posts related to lash extension if you are a lash lover like us.

How To Take Best Eyelash Extensions Break?

Eyelash extension removal

Have you had Lash extensions for long and seeking a break?  Well, there’s no harm from feeling your beautiful natural self again because sometimes an eyelash extension break is just the thing to do. And while resting your lashes, how about treating them to nourishment simultaneously? Simply follow our easy guide below and notice a visible change in the appearance of your lashes in only a few months.

Ladies, for starters, remove all of your Lash extensions. You can easily use olive oil, coconut oil or vaseline to remove your eyelash extensions in the comfort of your home. If you are hesitant yourself, hire a trustworthy lash technician to have them removed professionally.

Moving forward, keep your lashes clean and devoid of makeup periodically. As continuous application and removal of mascara can cause clogging and lash pulling out. If you’re still adamant on using mascara, an organic one will be safer Wipe eye makeup with a gentle eye makeup remover avoiding any tugging and pulling. Or create your own DIY eyemakeup remover combining olive oil and almond oil. Clean lashes are vital to bring them back to life.

Keep your lashes free from chemicals and oppressors. Natural lashes look beautiful on their own. Take pride in what you have and stop using strip lashes for a month. Instead go organic as much as you can to have strong lashes.

Take supplements to improve the appearance and growth of your lashes. In this case, Vitamin B3, Biotin and Vitamin C help tremendously, as these support hair growth which will benefit your lashes and protect against infect-ants too. With supplements, a good diet will too ensure healthy lashes so Ladies, take protein-rich foods, such as fish, eggs, etc and eat lots of avocados, olives and leafy greens. .

Stress, hormonal and metabolic changes are the culprits behind lash loss so avoid this at all costs. Busy yourself in energetic activities, fulfill your 8 hour sleep, think positive, pamper yourself and do exercise to de-stress your body. And never forget to wash the salty sweat off your lashes after a gym session and avoid rubbing them as such actions will cause your lashes to break.

Nature has blessed us with the ideal ingredients to nourish lashes and with our knowledge, problems don’t stand a chance! Similarly, applying coconut oil thrice a week and castor oil daily with a clean Q-tip will stimulate lash growth. And usage of Vitamin E Oil or Organic Shea Butter will nurture the lash hair follicles.

Beat dull-looking lashes with a lash enhancing serum (any brand) and get a fuller, longer and thicker pair quickly.

If you get eyelash extensions again, practice eyelash extension aftercare religiously or irregularity will ruin both your Lash extensions and natural lashes.
