We all believe we over-tweezed in our youth, but the truth is that eyebrow thinning is a fact of life. Brow hair becomes more sparse as we age. As dark and full eyebrows are associated with youth, a thinning brow can contribute significantly to an aged look as can a dated eyebrow shape.At Halcyon Cosmetic we believe that the look of a fuller brow can improve appearance, but we also believe in creating the brow that is right for you and that is not always a permanent or perfectly coiffed, straight-edged ombre brow. For some clients, a short-term solution is more appropriate than a long term enhancement. Each of us is unique and what is right for one person might not be right for the next. When creating a longer term eyebrow enhancement, we are committed to quality and longevity. Creating an eyebrow for an Instagram photo is very different than creating a brow that looks natural on you and will continue to look natural for years to come.
A short-term brow treatment, such as shaping and tinting, or henna, might last a number of weeks while brow enhancement techniques including microblading and powder brows might last years.
If you have never worn brow makeup or if you struggle with eyebrow thinning, you might be better suited to try short-term brow tinting. If you fill in your brows with makeup but are young and not committed to one particular shape you might try brow henna.
If you are a little more mature and not really following eyebrow trends, but have learned what looks best on you, it’s probably time for a longer term brow enhancement such as a powder brow. If your brow shape is very dated, a longer-term shape correction might be a great way to resurrect your youth.
All of our short-term brow professionals are licensed estheticians or experienced makeup artists. Our brow tattoo artists are not only very experienced but are some of the very few Canadian artists to be CPCP certified. Our junior artists are all working towards certification.
The permanent makeup profession is unregulated in Canada. Anyone can purchase the products and tools required to tattoo and begin practicing. The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals is a worldwide organization that has worked tirelessly for 25 years to instill regulation in our industry. To receive CPCP certification an artist must meet the minimum 100 hours of training, hold a current Bloodborne pathogens certificate, and pass a thorough examination covering all aspects of safe tattooing.

Yes. There are occasions where a client’s expectations for eyebrow treatments are not realistic. We may also choose not to proceed with treatments for other reasons.
