'Mariana is just amazing. She has the ability to look past what is there and see the potential of what can be. As a teenager growing up in the early 90's when thin was in for your eyebrows, I have no way of remembering what my original shape should be. Luckily Mariana has the tools of the trade, the knowledge and skill to recreate a natural look that frames and highlights the eyes perfectly.'

"From the moment I walked into Arc.co I knew it was something special.
Mariana and her team made me feel like royalty.
No fuss, just exclusive service and talent - matched with smiles and expertise to go with it!
I can't wait to bring all my girlfriends here!! Xx
It felt like a girls night out more than a beautiy service!"
- Maha Wilson - Australian actress.
"Before letting someone tattoo my face I did my research!!
I had been looking for over a year at different artists feathering work but hadn't found the right company that made me feel completely comfortable.
My eyebrows weren't bad, I just wanted a natural look to fill in some gaps.
When I first saw Mariana's work it looked above the rest of the pack and I'm so glad I waited so long to make the right choice.
Thanks Mariana for taking the time, being a perfectionist, listening to me and doing such a wonderful job!"
- Madeline King.
"I've always had pathetic eyebrows and have had serious eyebrow envy of most people and try to savour when my make up gets done professionally because it's the only time my brows actually exist.
I've been wanting to do something for a really long time and finally the eyebrow fairies answered my prayers and sent me to Mariana.
She doesn't follow a template; she follows your face and does exactly what will suit you, not the same look for every person. This means that I'm not a clone.
She keeps me an individual. I'm totally in love and the difference is phenomenal. x"
- Jess - Married at First Sight, Season 3.
"Everyone brow down to the incredible Mariana @arc.co!! With my job I travel a lot, am constantly on the go and working with some pretty cool peeps, I need to ensure my brow game is strong!
Bad brows mean bad business.
Thank you beautiful girl for making me feel so confident and fresh as a daisy.

PhiBrows is the manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing. The shape of the eyebrow is calculated according to the golden intersection (phi 1.618) and face morphology.
The pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using sterilised tools.
The pigment is chosen so as to match the natural colour of the eyebrow hair. After the healing, the colour may become several hues lighter than the colour of the natural hair.
Symmetry is achieved through PhiBrows application. It is calculated while the client has their eyes closed because the mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrow symmetry are relaxed when the eyes are closed.
Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hair growth to achieve a hyper-realistic look.
Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools (PhiBrush), and pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments).
Correction is done a month after the treatment to account for the 10 to 15 per cent of drawn strokes that disappear after the first treatment.
Colour is extremely dark during the first 5 to 7 days. A week post treatment, it loses 40 to 50 per cent of its intensity. If you think the colour is too dark, do not try to remove it yourself under any circumstance. Patiently wait 7 days for the colour to fade on its own after the skin has healed.
Colour duration primarily depends on how oily the skin is. The more oily the skin, the less time the colour will last. Sweating and sun exposure can also reduce the longevity of the colour.
On average, expected time until a new colour refreshment is required is between 10 and 12 months. With oily skin it is approximately 6 months.
Eyelash extensions are single synthetic lashes applied directly to the natural lash, close to (but not touching) the lash line, with a semi-permanent bonding adhesive.
A single extension is applied to a single lash, leaving the eyelashes and eyelids to move freely and naturally.
They are applied carefully, lash by lash, using tweezers specifically designed for the task.
The entire process usually takes 1 to 2 hours, depending on how many lashes are applied.
Russian volume eyelash extension can simply be defined as multiple (2 to 8) super fine lashes handcrafted into a fan shape, which is then applied onto a single natural lash (these are not clusters).
This technique is used if the client wants a dramatic look or to simply fill in gaps within natural lashes. They are still considered to be individual eyelash extensions because they are applied to a single natural lash. The beauty about this technique is its ability to be able to turn multiple extensions into a fan to create extra volume (called the multi-lash pick up technique).
Mastering this technique will allow you to create the most incredible eyelash extensions: anything from natural looking to extreme volume sets. This technique is especially great for clients with sparse natural lashes, giving them the opportunity to have thicker, longer and fuller lashes without damaging their natural lashes.
