DAN CEARNS The Standard
UXBRIDGE: At her business titled Elevated Beauty by Rachael, owner Rachael Jardine is looking to help women feel confident and empowered.
On Saturday, January 27th, she held a grand opening at the business’s location, at 18965 Hwy. 12, in Uxbridge.
Elevated Beauty by Rachael offers a service called microblading.
“Microblading is a new form of the old way of tattooing eyebrows. It is a semi permanent solution that lasts anywhere from one to three years before needing a touch up. It uses a handheld tool that embeds pigment into the skin, making individual hair like strokes,” Ms. Jardine explained.
According to Elevated Beauty’s website, microblading is different than a tattoo because “pigments are implanted 3 layers into the skin, while a traditional tattoo is 9.”
Ms. Jardine explained why she decided to open the business in the community.
“I am from the area, we live here, and I do have a visual arts degree from the University of Western Ontario. I’ve always been enthralled in the world of beauty, makeup, fashion. After having my eyebrows microbladed I knew the sense of empowerment I felt was something I wanted to share with women everywhere through microblading.” she said.
She added, she enjoys the artistic part of it, as well as giving women the shape of eyebrows they were looking for and seeing their reaction afterwards.
“People really don’t realize what it would be like not to have proper eyebrows, whether you’ve over tweezed them, over plucked, they are too thin, the shape isn’t right, etc. Being able to properly give a woman the shape of eyebrow they are looking for and seeing their reaction afterwards is my favourite part of it.
Ms. Jardine describes the businesses atmosphere as a “very chic, elegant studio.”
“I really want to create an environment where women can come, feel relaxed and like they can trust me with their face. I try to make them feel as comfortable as possible,” she said.
