+ How do I book an appointment with Kara?
Kara books Monday-Friday. You can book online or by calling us at 737.802.3199 Some Saturday & Sunday appointments are available and are reserved for new Microblading/PMU clients only. PRO-TIP: If you are more than 10min late for your appointment it will need to be rescheduled. A Rescheduling Fee of $150 may apply.
+ Why is there a price difference for Kara other microbladers in the area?
Simple, experience. Kara has been in the brow industry for 20 years, contuiously learning & teaching, has a hefty celebrity roster and has been published in several national and local magazines.
If you're shopping around you'll notice that the touch-up is rarely included and the yearly refresher appointment is generally the same price as the 1st microblading. Kara wants to be the only person who works on your brows so she includes everything in one price AND gives you $250 OFF your yearly touch ups!
Kara also takes your safety very seriously and uses only disposible implements, opened in front of you, the highest quality ink and numbing to keep you comfortable and ensure the best HEALED results. Kara is also fully licensed and insured. Most microbladers don't even carry insurance which is terrifying so we encourage you to ask.
+ Can I go back to work after my appointment?
Absolutely! The photos you see of Kara's work are taken within 3 minutes of the end of the procedure. That's how you look when you leave. Your brows will darken over the next 2-3 days but most will just think you've used a darker brow pencil. They will be a little shiny though from the ointment but that is the only visible part that people may notice. PRO-TIP: To get the best results plan to avoid sweating, sun and swimming for 10 days after.
+ Do you offer consultations?
We sure do! You can book that here for $50 which will be deducted from your balance when you come in for your appointment. Out-of-town clients or those not wanting to have a physical consultation can send a photo for Kara's review to Hello@KaraSanchez.com before booking. PRO-TIP: To get the best close up/detailed photo, stand near a window in daylight without any makeup in your brows.
+ Where is Kara?
We are located in Brodie Oaks Plaza [4021 S Capital of Texas Highway, Suite B, Austin, TX 78704] (between SAS Shoes & Edward Jones)
+ How do I prepare for my appointment?
Stop tweezing, waxing, tinting, threading the minute you book your appointment! Doing this will give you the best possible results. If you use retinols or take Omegas, prenatals or aspirin (unless prescribed), please stop at least 3 days prior to your appointment. PRO-TIP: Our services are intended to relax! Please feel free to bring earbuds, your bunny slippers or whatever will make you feel comfortable.
+ How do I shape my brows after my procedure?
Kara will shape them for you at your first appointment and clean them up for you again at your touch-up. Usually clients are able to maintain their shapings by following the microbladed/pmu guidline but if you are worried you'll mess them up you can make shaping appointments with Kara once you are a client.
+ What happens after my appointment?
You'll likely wake up the next day in a panic since they have darkened. Don't worry, this happens to everyone except usually light blondes. Trust the process and follow your card. Strict healing instructions are given for days 1-10. Remember complete healing occurs over the first 30 days so you should avoid:
- Peels, Injectables and Retin-A (avoid Retin-A & peels in the treated area for the life of your procedure to prevent excessive fading) PRO-TIP: Plan ahead to make sure that you can adhere to the above for your 1st appointment + your touch-up.
- Will I scab?
If you follow Kara's aftercare you should not scab. Some flaking may occur around day 6-10 but that's it!
+ What about aftercare?
Kara has very special and specific instructions for your aftercare and she provides you with EVERYTHING you need to get the best results possible.
+ How long will my appointment last?
2 hours for your first microblading appointment and 1.5 for your followup visit. Nano/device brows can take longer on the initial appointment but may only require a 10-30 minute touch up, if at all.
+ Can I pay in cash the day of?
Since a credit card deposit is required to book you can pay your remaining balance in cash if you prefer. If you would like to pay your deposit in cash, please stop in to see us in person and we are happy to help you with that!
+ Do you offer discounts for microblading or nano brows?
Once a year, on cyber Monday we have a flash sale for 24 hours. There are 10 appointments available at the discounted price and last year it sold out in 13 minutes! Set your calendar reminders for 10am on Cyber Monday!!! We also have a referral program so you will get a $25 Gift Card if you refer a friend for microblading!
+ What's the best way to contact you?
