Blindfolded Microblading

By Sheila Bella

I love a challenge! The aspiration, the grind, the euphoria of achievement... these are all natural endorphins for feeling great. But between those moments of giving it my all, I need some low-key time where I can just let loose and breathe before I get into the mindset to conquer my next goal. I recently spent some quality time outside of the office with my tribe of amazing friends, who also happen to be the talented Artists of Sheila Bella. It is my good fortune to have such strong, funny, and remarkable women in my life. Check out our crazy anecdotes and microblading skills (even when we are blindfolded). Thanks to these ladies, I’m ready to crush my next challenge.

Hairline Microblading

By Sheila Bella








While the terms “receding hairline” or “widow’s peak” may traditionally be associated with men, the unfortunate truth is that hair loss also impacts a great number of women. In fact, a wide variety of causes, ranging from genetics to a physical display of emotional distress, can result in sparse hair framing the face. In these cases, women may avoid hairstyles that pull away from the face in order to prevent the exposure of bald spots and/or making the forehead appear larger. The options available to address these issues haven’t been great… until now! I’m excited to announce that Hairline Microblading can fill in sparse areas with hairstroke...

Milan, Italy BioTek Convention

By Sheila Bella



Sheila Bella and Julie Go to Milan for BioTek!









I feel exhilarated. I am inspired. And I have new goals. Being part of the community of artists at the Biotek Convention 2018 has been amazing. Exchanging tips and tricks with people from around the world who are molding this industry is nothing short of invaluable. But even more than that, the support from people who are equally passionate about OUR craft gives me goosebumps. The feeling of a collective WE motivates me to not only learn from others, but also to be an active contributor. Our shared encouragement, collaboration and dedication keeps the momentum of this artform moving toward results that are increasingly more beautiful and natura...

Indigo Ball 2018

By Leil Villarta

LGBT Indigo Ball 2018







There was a time when I wasn’t entirely comfortable in my own skin. In the course of growing up, I gained experience from friends of different personalities and cultures, developed the confidence to be own unique self and eventually fell in love with a partner who both challenges and supports me. There were moments when I didn’t know any of this was even possible but the journey through the tough times was worth it. Now that I’m a mother, the world I want to create for my children is one of acceptance and the freedom to express their true selves. It was amazing to be able to honor this vision with an incredible group of LGBT advocates at the 2018 Indig...

Why Discomfort Is Necessary

By Sheila Bella

My comfort zone gets bigger every year. Why? Because I push myself to do hard things. I want to be my best self and that comes from new experiences (both good and bad ones!), dedication to my goals and surrounding myself with people who love and care about me. It can be hard to try new things. It can be hard to stick with something it until you feel that it has been completed. It can be hard to steer clear of negativity. But in the end, these actions make me feel strong, accomplished and good about myself. Take a peek at my conversation with Lauren Wood about how discomfort helps us be our best.

The Importance of Safety and Sanitation

By Sheila Bella

Trust is often defined as consistency over time. It does not happen overnight. It does not happen without effort and open communication. As a brand, Sheila Bella has made a commitment to the safety of our clientele by implementing the highest standards of sanitation during all of our procedures. From the moment we set up our equipment to the reveal of our work, we focus on building that trust daily. In fact, we encourage questions about the process because it’s just that important to us. These details matter to us and we hope that they matter to you too!

What They Don't Tell You About Motherhood

By Sheila Bella



For all of the Moms out there.. sure, they advised you about sleep deprivation, loss of time for yourself, and weight changes. But did they tell you that you'd possibly pee yourself in your sleep, or that labor is HARD (like really, REALLY HARD), and that there will be so much anxiety that fills your heart after bearing a newborn? For every three things they told you about motherhood, there are a million things they didn't. Some things are embarassing and some are just flat out GROSS! Motherhood is beautiful in many ways, of course, but there are just so many things about it that you don't find out until you're really in it! In this video, you'll get to hear the mommies of Sheila Bella talk...

Microblading: How It Works

By Sheila Bella




Sometimes it’s the little things that really have the greatest impact. My first daily priority is getting my morning started on the right foot because it puts me in the mindset for GREAT accomplishments! With permanent makeup, I not only save time in my morning makeup routine, but I start my day off without the frustration that stems from trying to create balanced eyebrows. Rather than drawing and re-drawing, I get to wake up with full brows, go to the gym without makeup and even have a few more precious minutes to spend with my family in the morning. Those who are curious about permanent makeup can check out our latest video “Microblading: How it Works” for a step-by-ste...

How to Deal with Judgmental People

By Sheila Bella


While tradition may be the building blocks of culture and community, evolution is also a critical component of growth and development. Not into traditional camping with tents, sleeping bags, and survival skills? Then take advantage of opportunities around you to do things YOUR way. There are many ways to enjoy the beauty of nature, and the world is full of things that aren’t mutually exclusive. Camping goes beyond the rustic – it can be unexpectedly glamorous! Join my friends and me on a break from microblading where we went on "Glamping" weekend and had a frank discussion about dimension beyond the first impression.

Microblading is Art

By Sheila Bella

Microblading is Art





The art of microblading is the careful balance of not only enhancing the best of our features by creating the proper framework of symmetry, but also placing each hairstroke in a way that keeps brows looking natural, soft and blended. No two people will have the same set of brows because each individual has a unique combination of skin type, hair growth pattern, brow hair color, lifestyle and even personality/style traits that make their eyebrows unique. The right artist will evaluate all of these variables to create the brows that will give you the confidence to meet your daily challenges head first... or should we say brow first?
