Wow! What a year it’s been.
Over the past 12 months SO much has changed for us at Tina Davies Professional and we couldn’t be more thankful for all of the achievements we’ve had alongside our community of artists, our team, new supporters, and everyone who’s been here from the beginning.
Here’s a review and wrap up of everything that happened in 2017 and what you can expect from us in 2018.
Our microblades got an upgrade. One thing that is near and dear to our hearts is YOUR feedback. We listened very carefully to you after launching the original Harmony Microblades and made some minor tweaks based off of our most important critics - YOU, the artists. Our microblades now have shorter handles to fit easily into your sharps containers, a protective cap to ensure safety, sterilization indicators for even more peace of mind, as well as smaller packaging to lower your shipping costs.
New exciting products
Not only did we launch Harmony 2.0, but it was really important that we continued to help improve the way you work, shorten your learning curve through better tools, and continue to bring you methods to make your life easier with these new additions:
- Skinny and Pro Pencils for different artist’s needs
- 16 component Disposable Sterile Kit to make your setup and take-down easy, efficient, and of course, sterile and disposable.
- Along with my newest technique “Blade & Shade”, we launched the 19 Shader so that you guys would be able to create bolder, dimensional eyebrows.
Besides all of that, one thing we really wanted to focus on in 2017 was helping more artists. This past year has brought on a slew of training and conflicting/confusing information. With the industry being so new, I knew that there was more to be taught so my team and I worked really hard bringing you guys as much information about proper techniques and best practices in hope to improve standards and skills across the board. I truly hope that the information has been valuable to everyone who has seen or heard it.
Our community grew - a lot! I never dreamed that I would have so many artists supporting me, my work, and everything that I stand for. I’m really just an artist just like you….I’ve just been doing it longer. I hope to teach all 10K of you something that brings you value in the new year!
You may or may not know this but our company started with just two people - me and my husband Luke. We handled everything from R + D, to sales, to customer service. 12 hour days were the norm and we learned every aspect of how to best service you guys. But we quickly realized that in order to do a great job (not just a good job) we needed more help. This year, we were lucky enough to find and build an amazing team of pros to take care of your needs and care deeply about our community. When you call/email/message us for customer service, you’ll talk to Sarah. When you go to our website and have a great shopping experience, that’s due to the hard work of Matthew, our digital expert/guru. When you read a great blog post or like our social media stuff, that’s me and Brianna. When you’re able to find our products on Amazon to get your stuff quickly and easily, that’s Anuj. And last but not least, if you talk/connect to a really nice and funny guy here, that’s Luke.
We moved into a bigger office! We quickly outgrew our humble beginning of our home office gathered around the makeshift desks and tables. Along with the struggles, it fostered close collaboration amongst our little tight-knit group who care deeply about our industry and artists, working toward the same mission of elevating your skills and bringing you the best products.
What can you expect from us in 2018?
In 2018, we want to focus on providing the most value to our customers and continue to build on the foundation we laid in 2017.
That means more products (shhhh - its a secret) to help you to work better and smarter, exciting collaborations with other artists, and more educational content and tips to improve every aspect of the way you work.
On top of that, we are revamping our website to make it easier for you to find anything you’re looking for from tracking your order, watching videos, finding information faster and easier, to modifying your subscription.
Another exciting thing is we’re getting ready to provide you with faster shipping so you can get your tools within a few days versus a week.
Thank you guys again for your enthusiasm, support and continued thirst for knowledge. You guys empower us we couldn’t be happier to be your microblading partner! 2018 is going to be a great one!
Let your art flow,
