Diane Harwood, owner of Brow Beauty by Diane, received her microblading certification from Brow Design International out of New York City. She has a bachelor of science degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in landscape design, with a minor in art. She is the owner of d.harwood Pottery (Mudgirl) located at 196D Main Street in Winthrop. She has been making pottery for 15 years and has received awards for her pottery creations. As an artist, Diane was drawn to microblading due to its creative and artistic requirements and her previous experience working as a makeup artist at Clinique located in Bloomingdale’s in New York City. As a child who loved to draw, Diane was drawing eyes and eyebrows as she would watch her mom drawing on her brows while getting ready to attend a business function for the evening. Fast forward to the present, it’s uncanny that she’s creating eyebrows using the microblading and microshading processes!
In choosing microblading professional, Diane recognizes how important it is to have an artistic background as well as to continue being educated in the latest and greatest brow techniques.
