    "Ruth is amazing! I have really light eye brows, and had to use pencil all the time before. Now they look great, no pencil or powder required! I would recommend her to anyone looking for microblading or help with their skin." -Jennifer Collins

    "Ruth is so sweet and kind. She takes her time and makes sure you understand the process and light handed with her work so it doesn’t hurt. I would recommend her 1,000 times! My confidence and self esteem has been lifted because of her!" -Jessica Waltower

    "Ruth was able to balance my brows and reshape my face. The service was so simple and pain free. Ruth is detailed beyond explanation and it’s very obvious why she’s the fixer to other estheticians’ work." -Jennifer Hamre

    If you’ve thought about microblading and you’re on the fence and worried about someone not doing a good job, go see Ruth!! She will give you the perfect brows you’ve never had! She is absolutely fabulous at what she does! She’s very meticulous and precise and she takes her time and will work with you to get you the exact look you want! She is also super personable and you will love her! My eyebrows are super blonde and thin and she made them darker and fuller and they look very natural. I highly recommend her without a doubt!

    Words cannot describe how amazing Ruth is at microblading! I live in Myrtle Beach, SC and she was recommended to me by a good friend, I drove 2.5 hours just so she could my eyebrows that is how good she is. Ruth is very professional and takes her time talking to you to make sure you get exactly what you want. I am a perfectionist and its even worst when it comes to my eye brows, so when I pointed certain areas to Ruth she did not hesitate and made sure that I left happy. Before I found Ruth I would spend about 30 plus minutes penciling in my eye brows which drove my friends nuts when we had plans to go out, and now I can get ready in less than 40 minutes. I would highly highly recommend her, if I could give her 10 stars I would. I can assure you that if you are interested in microblading you need Ruth in your life!
