Microblading is a fun, new beauty procedure everyone is talking about.
This beauty treatment is a form of tattoo done to the eyebrows for increased thickness and definition.
Microblading technicians use a needle to create tiny cuts along your brow line that they fill in with pigment that matches the shade and shape of your existing eyebrow.
This non-surgical treatment provides semi-permanent results. The pigment lasts about three years before it needs to be touched up again.
And, treatments like this one are growing in popularity in and around New York City.
Non-surgical treatments — like microblading — have increased by 44% in the last five years alone.
Some famous celebrities that have undergone this eyebrow treatment include Adele, Mila Kunis, Lorde, and Lena Dunham.
This permanent makeup procedure becomes more and more popular each and every day. It’s a relatively easy surgery, with minimal recovery time and limited risks.
Though, you do need to be careful where you get your eyebrows done — unregistered micro blading technicians put you at higher risk for bacterial infections, allergic reaction and blood-borne illnesses like HIV.
That being said, where are some of the best places to get your eyebrows microbladed in NYC?
Let’s find out.

EverTrue Microblading Salon
The EverTrue Microblading Salon is a dedeicated microblading establishment in NYC. But it also offers a number of other beauty services in a chic, Flatiron location.
And, it’s got a five-star rating on Yelp which backs up its claims.
Here’s what one of the five-star reviewers thought:
I had a microblading treatment with May Lin, who was phenomenal. She is one of the newer brow technicians there, but I felt totally at ease and it was easy to have clear communication of what I wanted: natural looking, slightly thicker and darker than my natural brows without too harsh of an arch.
Brows By Renee
Brows By Renee is a Hell’s Kitchen hot spot for all things microblading.
Whether you want a traditional microblading treatment, a more advanced version of microblading, or you just want to get your brows done, this is the place to do it.
The staff is friendly, the space is inviting and there’s a lightness to the air that is extremely refreshing.
According to one reviewer:
Renee is a super sweet artist. Her office is impeccably beautiful, and her demeanor made this experience feel more like a spa than anything else. She explained the process in detail and gave me a mini tutorial about the shape of my brows and sketched out the brows to make it more flattering for the shape of my face. After the painless microblading process, she gave me a mini postcard that went into detail on what to expect over the next 3 weeks. I’ve gotten so many compliments for my former non existent brows. Its so nice to be able to get up every morning and not take 10 minutes to draw them out. I can’t wait to go back for my touch up. Thank you Renee for the amazing experience. I will be back!
SIX+AIT Microblading Studio
Six+Alt Microblading Studio is one of the highest quality salons in the city. It’s clean, comfortable and professional. You can’t help but feel confident you’re going to have killer brows after a visit.
One reviewer had this to say on Yelp about the exceptional service:
Absolutely recommend SIX+AIT if you want some fleeky eyebrows!!! I booked an appointment with Lucy online and the process is super smooth. I got there and instantly Lucy was super friendly; she walked me through the entire process and reassured me that the end results will be great. She started off with drawing the shape based off of photos I had + what she thought would look nice. I wanted to stay close to my natural brow and Lucy was able to make that happen but also level it up a bit. After we agreed on my shape, she applied the numbing cream (for ~20 minutes) and after that started the process. Throughout the entire time, she would always check up with me and make sure it wasn’t too painful. The end results are A M A Z I NG and I love Lucy!!!!
With over 100 reviews on Yelp, Lash Eyeland is definitely a popular microblading salon in Manhattan.
Here’s what one reviewer had to say about her amazing experience:
I have been to lash island multiple times to get lashes done but decided to do a review after I got a microblading done. After quite an awful microblading experience a few years ago I decided against it although I have sparse eyebrows that needed a lot of filling. That was until I saw pictures of lash island’s work which made me give it another try. And it was a great experience and results were so much better. I didn’t feel a lot of pain throughout the process and none afterwards. The color looked so natural even during the darker phase. And the eyebrow shape was the perfect fit for my face. They are very consultative with the process making sure you’re getting exactly what you want. I haven’t gotten my touch up yet but I’m excited!
Mia Min Beauty
Mia Min Beauty is located in Koreatown. It’s a clean, friendly and informative establishment that offers state-of-the-art microblading services.
The technicians are extremely knowledgeable and open. They talk you through the process and make sure you feel comfortable, informed and at ease.
Here’s just one review on Yelp that shows the expertise of the salon:
Mia is WONDERFUL! It was my first time getting a brow tattoo and I, as a person who is overly-cautious, did a research for several months trying to find a professional who can actually do the job done right. Just like all the reviews I’ve read, Mia was very professional and most importantly she was willing to accommodate my requests while giving advices as a professional. Her technique is amazing and the result came out exactly how I wanted it to be. I absolutely love waking up and not having to spend my time drawing and fixing my brows.
Mia Min Beauty will answer all of your questions — and then some. That makes it one of the best spots in the city for your microblading needs.
