Let’s be honest. Brows are probably the first thing we all look at when meeting someone. So when you’re having your boudoir session done with your favorite Boston boudoir photographer (that’s me!), you want to make sure you’re eyebrows are killing it. Check out these 3 Boston microblading shops to find your perfect fit.
Microblading is a permanent makeup that mimics hair strokes to strengthen the eyebrow. You can think of it as a tattoo almost. Your esthetician will numb the area and spend time drawing out the shape for perfect symmetry.
Amy opened Boston Microblading after studying and earning five certificates from schools and Master Artists. She is a licensed microblading artist in Boston, Watertown, and Medford, as well as a licensed esthetician in Massachusetts. At Bostom Microblading, Amy offers her clients various microblading services, which you’ll find below.
Machine Hairstrokes is perfect for those wanting longer-lasting results. It also has better retention for all skin types and lasts around 2-3 years. Machine Hairstrokes is a semi-permanent tattoo that illuminates natural hair strokes.
The Machine Hairstrokes service is $850 with a $100 non-refundable deposit that goes towards the final payment. You’ll want to maintain your brows every 12-15 months with the Maintenance Boost service. The fee is $375 with a $100 non-refundable deposit that goes towards the final payment.
A Hybrid Brow is perfect for those wanting a more natural look than a solid brow. It’s also better for oily and dark skin, resembling makeup. Hybrid Brow is a mix of tattooed hair strokes and shading, which gives it a soft shaded brow look.
The Hybrid Brow service is $850 with a $100 non-refundable deposit that goes towards the final payment. Like with the Machine Hairstrokes, you’ll want to maintain your brows every 12-18 months with the Maintenance Boost service. The fee is $450 with a $100 non-refundable deposit that goes towards the final payment.
For both services, you’ll also receive a complimentary touchup within 5-7 weeks of your initial appointment. Although rare, if a second touch-up is needed, you will schedule the work within three weeks of the first touch-up. The cost is $20.

When you go to Brow Muse for Boston microblading, you’ll have a consultation with Mila to create a professional design for your brows. From there, she’ll begin the process of creating the hair-like strokes and shading. At Brow muse, they offer particular types of microblading. Nano Brows is the most gentle and uses a digital machine, layering pixels of color. 3D Microblading is considered eyebrow tattooing, where the skin is gently scratched to look like hair strokes. A combination of the two is also available and will take around 2-3 hours. This process is $1000 and a $250 deposit is required.
As with most beauty procedures, maintenance is required. For a 7-13 month color boost, you can expect to pay around $375. At 14-18 months, you can expect a $400 fee. For a 19-24 month color boost, your cost will be around $525. After two years, you’ll need to start the service again at full price.
The BrowMuse operates from 115 Newbury Street, Suite 304. They also have a location in Miami if you are on vacation and need a boost!
