Permanent Makeup

What is Powdered Brows?

Powder Brows is designed with a digital cosmetic machine. For Powder Brows we mimic the stippling movement done in painting and drawing to create a filled in brow which looks very similar to makeup! The stippling movement is done by ‘drawing’ dots that produce a color throughout the brow. This is our personal favorite service.

What is Combo Brows?

Combo brows are a mix of both Micro Blading and Powdered Brows for the best of both worlds! This technique creates perfect, soft micro-bladed fronts with the added powdered definition through the brow.

What is Micro Blading?

Microblading is a manual method of semi-permanent makeup. We ‘draw’ on hair strokes following the natural direction of your hair to make shaped, filled-in brows. This is done by etching hair like strokes into the skin and then filling the etches in with pigment. What makes this so natural is the space of skin between each stroke. This technique makes a very natural and realistic brow customized to enhance your natural beauty! Ahna no longer offers this service as years change so does the permanent makeup world. This technique isn’t recommended for majority of skin types. Therefore she offers Powder brow and Combo brow as a replacement.

What is Lash Enhancement Liner?

Lash Enhancement liner is a way of tattooing a natural looking eyeliner. A Black or Brown line is tattooed in between the lashes, giving the appearance of fuller and thicker lashes.

What is Permanent Eyeliner?

Eyeliner is the next step above a lash enhancement liner. The Placement of this liner gets its name because the pigment is up onto the eyelid. Creating an eye opening look!

What is Lip Blushing?

Lip Blushing is a form of tattooing the lips to create a more defined lip line and natural lip color. This treatment involves shading and lining the lips to achieve a natural-looking tint. This technique does not produce a lipstick look but more of a lip stain.

Eyelash Extensions

What are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent fibers that are attached to your natural eyelashes in order to make your lash fringe look longer, fuller, and darker. Individual lash extensions are applied to each of your individual natural eyelashes (one extension per natural eyelash) using a semi-permanent glue. We offer a variety of extension lengths, curl patterns, and tints so clients can customize their look.

What Style of Eyelash Extensions Are Offered?

1. Classic – a single placed lash extension placed onto all of your natural lashes, creating a natural look.

2. Hybrid- two different types of lashes mixed to create a more makeup effect, a combination of classic and volume lashes.

3. Volume- multiple lashes places on a single lash creating a look similar to a strip lash look.

How Long Do Eyelash Extenstions Last?

As with the hair on your head, eyelashes follow a natural cycle of shedding and regrowth. All of your lashes are at a different stage at any point in time, which means that some of your lashes are getting ready to shed while others are experiencing a period of growth (this is true if you have eyelash extensions or not). Since an individual extension is applied to an individual lash, that extension will fall out on its own when the eyelash sheds from the lash line. Typically 2-4 weeks before needing a fill.

Are Eyelash Extensions Damaging?

Lash extensions alone will not ruin your lashes. Damage to the natural lashes is the result of improper application. There are a few main factors that contribute to this problem: Applying extensions that are too heavy for the natural lash will result in premature shedding. Rubbing your eyes will also result in immediate breakage. You can do everything right and still find that eyelash extensions cause breakage to your natural eyelashes. There are factors that you have no control over (like if you rub your eyes in your sleep or if you genetically have a faster lash cycle than what is considered normal) that can compromise your natural lashes—including causing your natural lashes to fall out or break off. Keep in mind though, eyelashes are hair—and unless you have a pre-existing condition or circumstance, hair grows back. Which means your eyelashes will grow back. While damage to your natural eyelashes is certainly not ideal (nor is it sustainable over time), any breakage or fallout should resolve itself in 1-3 months, as part of a typical lash growth cycle. We also have a lash extension safe growth serum to help prevent this feeling.

Eyelash Life & Tint

What is A Lash Lift and Tint?

The lash lift mimics the effect of an eyelash curler. It makes your lashes bend upwards, leaving them looking longer, and your eyes more open and bright. Meanwhile, a lash tint is tinting your natural lashes darker using typically black or brown. With the final result looking darker and longer lashes with no makeup.

How Long Does A Lash Lift Last?

A lash lift isn’t permanent. The effects fade with time, and after a few weeks, you may find yourself once again reaching for the mascara. In general, a lash lift lasts for around 4 to 6 weeks, but this can vary depending on your lashes.

How Often Can I Get My Lashes Lifted and Tinted?

You may re lift your lashes every 8 weeks and re tint your lashes every 4 weeks.

Are Lash Lifts Damaging?

No, lash lifts should not damage your lashes. Even if you end up with a lash lift that goes a little wrong, the effects of the procedure are only semi-permanent. Eyelashes naturally fall out and regrow every 4 to 6 weeks, so you won’t have to worry about damaging your lashes long term. We suggest using Elleeplex that is sold at the salon to help condition the lashes after the service.

How Does Xtract Work?

Yes, Xtract® is very different from the average saline tattoo removal product. Xtract® removal is a 4-part process. Xtract® Activation Serum does contain Himalayan Saline, however unlike standard saline removal Xtract® only contains less than 1% saline because it has been proven anything above 10% in a hypertonic solution suppresses the immune system. Xtract® works synergistically with the immune system not against it. Step 1: Xtract® has a proprietary needling technique to minimize epidermal exfoliation to ensure the integrity of the skin and hair follicles. Step 2: Xtract® Activation Serum also utilizes 1,3 Beta Glucan to stimulate the macrophage cells to release tattoo ink. It does this by tricking the body into thinking there is a yeast invasion in the worked area. Not only does this let the stagnant macrophage cells release the ink, but it triggers more macrophage cells to come to the area and remove the ink. Step 3: Xtract® Withdrawal Mask traps the ink at the surface of the skin removing 50% more ink than just the serum alone. It contains over 74 natural occurring minerals exhilarating the healing process and reducing localized inflammation by increasing local oxygen. It utilizes Ink Chelation Technology™ to draw heavy metals, toxins and allergens to the surface of the skin through a binding of positive and negative ions. Step 4: Xtract® utilizes moist wound healing which allows the continuation of the Chelation of ink and also allows growth factors to move freely to minimize scar potential and proven to heal 3-5x’s faster. Throughout the moist wound healing process we utilize Xtract® DNA Repair Serum that contains patented Zinc Finger Technology℗ which activates the body’s natural remodeling process to remove scar tissue, normalize pigmentation and accelerate healing.

Temporary Tattoos- GEL 

What is Jauga Gel?
  • Jagua is a temporary tattoo product that colors the skin a blue-black color. Jagua comes from the Genipa Americana tree, which can be found in the jungles of South America. Jagua has been used for body ornamentation and medicinal purposes by the indigenous people of the Amazon for centuries.
How Long Do They Last?
  • Depending on skin type, life style, and such will be a factor in your longevity of your tattoo. Typically it lasts 14 days. 
Does it hurt?
  • No. The skin is never pierced and it does not hurt. The gel is applied, like henna, on top of the skin, and it only penetrates the uppermost layer of the skin. The application of jagua gel to the skin is 100% pain-free.
Is There An Age Limit?
  • No. It is safe for everyone, even pregnant women. 
Are There Any Side Effects?

No. As with anything else in the natural world, however, allergic reactions are always possible, depending on the individual (think peanuts or strawberries). It is known that certain drugs can sensitize the skin to things such as sunlight and certain topical preparations. Therefore, we recommend that people taking medication check first with their doctor before applying jagua (or anything else, for that matter) on their skin. In addition, it is always prudent to do a small patch test first before attempting a full-size tattoo.

  • Something else to consider: jagua is a fruit. Anyone with sensitivities to fruit should definitely do a patch test first.
