Fifteen years ago, I was searching for the same thing that brought you here: beautiful, shapely brows. Back then, my natural brows were far from perfect: sparse, straight and with a mind of their own. It wasn’t until I let an esthetician perform her magic at the Benefit counter in Macy’s that I realized what beautiful brows can do; I looked younger, my face was brighter and my eyes were more expressive. Eyebrows literally frame the face, and I remember feeling like a masterpiece.

Flash forward to 2017. The process of carefully applying makeup to give my brows shape and depth was time-consuming. I was toying with the idea of permanent makeup to maintain my brow shape and add definition, and did a lot of research until I found an amazing technician who specialized in microblading. She answered all of my questions and walked me through the process - how much it would cost, what my expectations were, and how I would feel before and after the procedure. She transformed not only my brows, but my career path. I knew then that I wanted to pursue permanent makeup artistry and make my clients feel as special as I did.

I created Mayu Beauty studio to mirror my dedication to providing you with the same experience. We'll chart your features, talk about your expectations and discuss aftercare. My door is always open, and I invite you to contact me any time, even in-between appointments. You will feel safe, confident and beautiful, with brows so natural you’ll leave everyone guessing “did she, or didn’t she?”

It can be our secret.

At Mayu, I make sure all of my clients feel welcome, safe, and taken care of.

I learned the art of microblading from one of the world’s pioneers in the industry—Daria Chuprys in Beverly Hills—and I am a registered Body Arts Practitioner in Alameda County. My studio has a current Public Health Permit issued by Alameda County Department of Environmental Health and is in full compliance with the CA Assembly Bill 300 Safe Body Art Act. These are the statewide standards for the regulation of tattoo, piercing and permanent cosmetic businesses. These standards are intended to protect both you and me from the transmission of infectious diseases by ensuring sanitary procedures, including the use of sterile equipment.

All needles used for permanent makeup are single-use, in gamma-sterilized, sealed packets, I take every precaution to assure you of a sterile environment, from changing gloves frequently to cleaning all surfaces with a medical-grade disinfectant. I use exclusively Li pigments, which are highly reputable, rigorously tested and meet stringent standards of safety in the EU.
