Hello & Welcome to Brows Ink.!
Just wanted to say a big hello and thank you for visiting our website!
My name is Esther... I am an experienced Semi Permanent Make Up Artist with a special kinda love for brows. Those who know me will be familiar with this life-long obsession of mine. Random fact - someone I grew up with recently reminded me that I used to sneak tweezers into school and gave friends brow consultations during break times (aged 10). Also, due to my Middle Eastern heritage, another memory is being taught how to thread eyebrows as soon as I developed my delightful 'monobrow'. For those of you wondering what a monobrow is, you clearly weren't blessed with the excessive hair gene.
So if we fast forward a decade or two... I trained in Semi Permanent Make Up (back in 2014) and began working soon after as a Freelance Artist covering most parts of London, predominantly on a mobile basis. The method I trained in at the time was was with the digital Semi Permanent Make Up (SPMU) machine. I spent the next few years travelling around the big smoke meeting an array of fabulous clients whilst taking care of their Eyebrow, Lash Liner & Lip Blush needs. Despite specialising in all 3 services, it goes without saying that I used to do a little 'happy dance' every time an eyebrow booking came through!
Fast forward some more and in September 2017 I became Mama to my miracle baby boy - weighing just over 3lbs and born at 34 weeks gestation! Due to a very challenging pregnancy, coupled with single parenthood, I took a year out to concentrate on me & baby and to plan the next steps of my SPMU business! Last year was a year of reflection, weighing up options and putting building blocks in place to create the foundations of what is now Brows Ink. It was a very straight forward decision to have a brand new studio space created allowing clients to visit me at home whilst slowly bringing all mobile relationships to an end. This would allow me the flexibility to juggle mummy/work life whilst continuing to be my own boss, doing something I absolutely love! The only caveat was a clear need for up-skilling myself as I had become aware of the relatively new 'Microblading' technique which had taken over the SPMU arena during my time off! Just after my 30th birthday in September 2018, I took it upon myself to make Microblading training an absolute priority. Once this was ticked off the list, I made the decision to completely revamp the old business brand (formerly Beauty Spot - for those who may remember!), shift my business focus and switch-up the marketing strategy to give it a fresh and modern vibe.
I would like this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Ayo at Extensio (Digital Marketing) & Amy and her team at Silvertoad.co.uk (Website Development) for helping make my vision an actual reality, so quickly yet so effectively too! Brows Ink. came to life on 1st December 2018, and thanks to all your support has continued to go from strength to strength in its first few months of business.
