FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!!! I was finally able to see Erica, for the Precision Brow Sculpting with tint! I'm beyond the moon happy with my results! I will definitely return. Awesome experience!

Maria G

Karlye was amazing, it was my first time trying a lash lift and I was a little bit nervous, just the resemblance with the perms that we used to have back in the 80’s gave me some concerns. But she gave me so much confidence, she walked me through the steps with her sweet and caring personality that made the process so easy. My eyelashes look fabulous!

Mila C

This studio is the best, and I don't mind driving in all the way from Austin to my appointments. Bri is absolutely amazing. She was with me through my entire eyebrow journey. I had some microblading done elsewhere that was fading to a weird color and she did my laser removal. I went to several places before I found Her Velvet Hand (not many tattoo removal shops will do makeup removal!). Once we got that done, I fully trusted her to do powder brow, and she made sure it was absolutely perfect for me. She's also just great to talk to and a genuinely good person. Well worth the investment and time spent! I will be coming back when I am ready for a touch up.

Jackie H

I feel very lucky to be in the hands of Bri’s artistry. She is meticulous in making sure that every detail is exactly how you want it. She knows the right questions to get you to think about your brows. She is so gentle in her manner and her hands. I am beyond happy with my results.

Deborah C

Courtney and her team are the BEST. Not only have they perfected their craft, but they are genuinely sweet and kind humans who you want to be around. They are extremely professional while still welcoming, and are detail and hygiene oriented--making you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
