My Final PMU Brows
Happy Friday! I wanted to give you an update on my PMU brows with B Shea Vanity. I shared my full experience HERE. You can read all about how long it lasts, if it hurt, how long it takes to heal, etc. in that post. Now that my brows have completely healed, I can share my final thoughts with you!
First of all, the number one thing I can say is that it’s worth every single penny. To wake up every day with brows and come out of hot yoga with full eyebrows is totally priceless (as someone who doesn’t have them naturally). I’m saving time (and money) by not having to fill them in or get them tinted. Blakeley did an INCREDIBLE job. I love how the color ended up and think they look very natural. In person you would probably just think I had penciled in my brows.
The procedure itself was not that big of a deal. I didn’t LOVE the prep (you can’t drink the night before or have coffee the morning of) or the healing time (you can’t workout for a week which is the worst part), but for the end result it was totally worth it. And for the record, I don’t drink often, but both procedures fell at awkward times for me. The first one I had a friend in town visiting (didn’t drink), the second one I was celebrating my birthday with my girlfriends (did drink; huge mistake). I HIGHLY recommend following Blakeley’s instructions! The first time I had my brows done it didn’t hurt at all, and I barely bled. When I came in for my touch up (and had a few glasses of wine the night before) it hurt a lot worse, and I definitely bled more. Here’s my thing: if you’re spending this kind of money for something semi-permanent on your face, follow the instructions.
The other thing to note (and I talked about this on Instagram stories while it was happening), is that your brows will scab over and peel off. It doesn’t hurt at all, but it’s not the most attractive (especially with how dark mine were). I’m not the kind of person who really cares about that kind of thing, so I just went about my life with crusty, flaking off brows. I do think it is important to know that it’s part of the healing process!
I think the comment I heard the most in the beginning is that they were too dark. And guess what? They were too dark! They had to be that dark so they would end up the color they are, which I think is perfect. Blakeley is very up front about all this, so I think the best advice I can give is to trust Blakeley and trust the process. In the picture above you can see my brows before (and that is with tint on them, they are almost blonde naturally), immediately after she finished the first round of PMU, then 6 weeks healed when I was there for the touch up, then immediately after she touched them up, and the last picture is 5 weeks later and the final product!
I honestly can’t recommend this procedure and Blakeley highly enough! For inquiries, email Blakeley ( B.firstname.lastname@example.org ) or if you have any questions for me, you can always email me ( Megan@shopboem.com ).
