Who We Are?
Bare Beauty Spatique is a boutique spa specializing in eyebrow microblading in the Galleria area of Houston, TX. We strive to create the perfect pair of eyebrows for each client with exceptional customer service. Each of the artist has an exceptional eye for detail and their own artistic approach to their craft.
What is microblading?
Microblading is semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that utilizes a sterile and disposable microblading pen to place semi-permanent pigment into the surface of the skin. The effect very closely mimics the look and detail of actual brow hairs, creating a bolder, natural-looking brow. This procedure does not require a tattoo gun and is quite different from a traditional tattoo in terms of procedure, permanency, colour, detail, and overall look. Microblading is simply the best way to create natural-looking brows. It can also be referred to as eyebrow embroidery or feathering.
What is microshading/ombré shading?
Microshading and ombré shading is also a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure where it uses a needle that places semi-permanent pigment in the upper layer of skin in a stippling technique. The overall look of the eyebrows once it has healed is more of a filled-in make-up look compared to the hair-like look of microblading. Some clients prefer this type of look or if someone has an oily skin complexion, this procedure might be more ideal for better healed results.
What is combination brows?
This is the best of both worlds - combining microblading and ombré shading together. Usually microblading is completed at the fronts of the brows to keep it looking more hair-like and fluffy and ombré shading is completed in the middle of the brows to the tails to keep the shape looking defined and more filled-in. Usually if your skin-type is more oily, this method is great for retention longevity. If you are unsure which technique will be ideal for your brow goals, please email us at for our professional opinion.
How long does it last?
Your brows will last between 1-2 years. We recommend that our clients come in for an annual touch-up to keep the brow colour looking fresh and to ensure the strokes are defined.

How long does the procedure take?
The initial procedure takes approximately 2 - 2.5 hours. The appointment includes brow shaping, customized colour matching and microblading/microshading. The first half of the appointment is the consultative component of the procedure and the second half is the microblading itself.
Does the procedure hurt?
A topical anesthetic is used to numb the brow area prior to the procedure. You can expect some minor level of discomfort during the procedure similar to threading or tweezing.
What is the healing process like?
Within a few days, the lines that we've placed throughout your brows will begin to scab. This is completely natural but it could look a little patchy at first. To relieve the brows of itchiness or dryness, you may use jojoba oil.
Once the scab falls off naturally, the lines will begin to appear darker and your brows will take a fuller, more natural look within a few weeks.
Does everyone's skin heal similarly?
Everyone's skin is different and therefore may heal differently from this procedure. Depending on your skin type and how well your body heals from small scabs, some areas might retain pigment better than others.
We will do our best to ensure pigment is placed well within the skin to achieve exceptional results. A small percentage of clients might need two touch-ups instead of one. Please be patient and know that we are committed to getting you the results you want.
