What is Microblading? 

Microblading allows the artist to create crisp, fine hair strokes that fill in thin brows, or can even create total brow reconstruction. Microblading is a semi-permanent make-up procedure that creates life-like hair strokes on your brows that typically last 18 months. This is done by inserting cosmetic pigments into the dermis layer of the skin. Microblading is also known as brow feathering and hair stroke tattooing.

Is it painful?

Most of my clients report little or no pain. Often, they say it's a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10, You will be treated with anesthetic-numbing creams that are FDA approved.  The first cream is applied to the eyebrow area 20 minutes before we begin the process, clients feel totally numb during the procedure. After the procedure clients say it feels like a slight sunburn, or no more painful than having your brow tweezed.

What happens during an Asheville Ayes Eyebrow Appointment?

First, a topical numbing cream is applied that stays on for about 20 minutes. Next, your brow color and texture is analyzed and the best custom brow is designed for your bone structure and face shape. You will be given the opportunity to share your thoughts on what you like or do not like about the design. Once you are satisfied with the shape and thickness, we choose the perfect color.  I only purchase the highest quality tools and pigments for the best final results, Microblading is exploding in popularity, and so, todays permanent makeup colors for brows are the newest and best on the market.

Finally, you can relax though the procedure and know that there will be absolutely no shocking surprises. I can promise you that you will be thrilled with your first look in the mirror after the procedure.  The entire visit lasts two to three hours, allowing plenty of time to reassess every choice. Your complimentary touch-up “perfecting” appointment will then be scheduled for 6 weeks after and shouldn't take longer than 90 minutes.

Why is the second appointment necessary? 

The second appointment is extremely important to ensure desired results. This allows enough time for the epidermis to naturally slough off and for the color to settle into your skin. During the perfecting session appointment the artist can see how your skin has received the ink and make any desired corrections and refinements.


Why get Microblading?

Microblading is perfect for people who have over plucked brows, who and are tired of having to daily draw in matching brows that end up “smearing off”.  

Microblading is especially perfect for the more mature women, in time our brows grow thin, lighten, and drop with our skin. When brows are perfectly measured and drawn in harmony with your natural features, microblading will give a more youthful appearance with color and definition. In many cases it creates a type of face-lift in appearance!  

People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who just aren't happy with their eyebrows. 

**This method is ideal for anyone simply wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows.**

After your Microblading session.

Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. The day of the procedure you will be encouraged to gently blot your brows with tissue. Within 24 hours you may gently clean your brows with water and apply Aquaphor.  This will help prevent scabbing and flaking.  Typically, no one will ever know you just had microblading, unless to compliment your new brows. The process of cleaning with water only in the morning and evening then pat dry and add a thin layer of ointment should continue for the first 4 to 5 days. *Keep pets, dogs and cats away from your brows for the first four days!!**

How long do the results last?

An average of one to two years. Hair color, skin type, after-care, and lifestyle also affect longevity of the results. Done correctly, the treatments do not change color and fade naturally away with time. This allows future flexibility with shape, as standards of beauty change. Yearly touch-ups are recommended to maintain the results.


Can I get a cosmetic tattoo if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

According to health department regulations, cosmetic tattoos can NOT be performed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid alcohol and medications that may thin your blood before your appointment, unless prescribed by your doctor.

Kelli Delperdang 

Who am I?  I am a licensed art teacher, experienced mural artist, a trained Lancome makeup-adviser and mother of 3 daughters, all which have equipped me to be well crafted at microblading eyebrow artistry.  I am an artist first, an artist who became trained in perfect 3-D microblading hair strokes. You can trust me to design the correct brow shape, to know the best color, and to draw perfect 3-D microblading hair strokes.  

I originally became interested in learning about microblading when I helped my daughter search for a microblading technician. It was a challenge to find someone we trusted, someone who would be marking her face with semi-permanent pigment.  It was a scary search. There were so many unknown factors, yet trust ended up becoming the biggest factor.  Our concern was not so much about doubting the procedure, but about finding someone we could trust to do the microblading with natural looking results.  Both my daughter and I are artists and ended up having to ask the technician if we could draw the brow design ourselves. After watching the process, I knew that I could have microbladed a more natural looking brow. Going through the process as a client, helped me be a MUCH better professional. I realized that the client may have a different perspective, and that they should absolutely be listened to.


Microblading is a semi-permanent and very personal decision. We create the brows of YOUR dreams, not OURS.


Making the leap from penciled in or powdered brows, to ones that are maintenance free, can be an unnerving process. We specialize in personalized brow design, and thoroughly study your images & communicate clearly throughout the process to determine what the best course of action for your brow session is.


I would recommend this place HIGHLY to anyone that’s thinking about getting there eyebrows Micro Bladed. I’ve had blonde eyebrows my whole life. I always put powder or eye pencil to color them in. Now I don’t have that problem anymore! I am so happy I trusted Kelli Delperdang with my eyebrows, she matched the color perfect with my hair and completely shaped them. Kelli reassured what I wanted and made the whole experience very enjoyable. The eyebrows she gave me really lifted my face. I’m ecstatic with the results. I am now a lifetime client to Asheville Ayes. Thank you so so much Kelli!

To say that Kelli exceeded my expectations is a gross understatement. She listened intently to all of my input, and during our consultation asked me numerous questions. She accepted all of my emails with inspirational brows, and freely gave me her experience and advice. If you’re considering microblading PLEASE do yourself a favor and choose Asheville Ayes.

What an incredible experience working with Asheville Ayes Microblading to get the perfect brows! Kelli was professional, friendly, helpful, and made me feel amazing! My natural brows are very thin and I have been meticulously filling them in for several years. It was exhausting and time consuming. But now my eyebrows are awesome and I don’t have to spend time working on them and trying to get them to look presentable. I love what Microblading has done for beauty routine and my confidence!
