I would highly recommend Chrysalis to anyone."
-Terri M. July 28, 2014
"Mel is phenomenal! I had permanent makeup done on my eyebrows and love it. I truly think good brows can make a big difference on the face and I receive a lot of compliments on mine. Mel is friendly and ensures that you are comfortable. The procedure is pain free and she talks you through what she's doing along the way. She's really got it down to a science and proportions the eyebrows to match the individuals face appropriately. She takes the time to understand what you want, show you different color options, and makes knowledgeable suggestions. Permanent makeup can seem a bit daunting at first, but Mel does a great job and it comes out looking very natural. With something like permanent makeup, it is very important to go to someone who knows what they're doing... If you want the best, you'll go to Mel. She's called the eyebrow genie for a reason :) I'll definitely be a returning customer!"
-Heather S. June 30, 2014

Very Sweet Friend....."

“Wow, my eyeliner is really looking great already! Thanks again, I'm really pleased with it. I was talking to a clerk in the grocery store on Sunday, and I had my sunglasses on. I took them off to read something, and when I looked up at the clerk she said "oh wow, you have really pretty eyes!" No one's ever said that to me out of the clear blue before, so I'd say that's a testament to how much of a difference it's made. :^)”

“I've had permanent eyeliner and eyebrows tattooed on by Mel and it looks fantastic! She has pictures and videos of her work, you can check it out before hand so you're completely comfortable. The best part is that it was PAIN FREE. Yep that's right, she numbs the area first with a numbing cream so I didn't feel a thing. The tattoos do look a little dark at first. After about a week the color will fade to the perfect shade so don't freak out. As an added bonus Mel also makes her own soaps and jewelry. I'm so happy that I don't have to cross the bridge to get this great service.”

-Melissa H. January 03, 2013
“I had my eyebrows and eyeliners done by Mel, and she was extremely professional and friendly. Although I've wanted to get the permanent makeup done for a long time, I was extremely nervous about it. My friends and coworkers advised against it and told me it would look so artificial and fake and I'd regret it. I researched online for pros and cons of getting it done. I was still pretty nervous going in for the first appointment. I got my eyebrows done first. Yes, they were dark for a few days, but her after-care instruction sheet explained it all. After a few days, it became less intense, and I was so pleased with the result that I decided to do my eyeliners with her as well. Eyeliners were a bit more painful than eyebrows, but it was done in an hour. There is virtually no swelling after a few hours and no pain. Mel provided me with some ointment, but I don't think I'd be needing it. I am so happy that I got my eyebrows and eyeliners done by her. She is really good. Thank you, Mel!!!”
