She is a native of Vietnam but now resides in Picayune with her husband. She brings more than 14 years of cosmetic experience with her, five of those conducting microblading services. Before moving to Picayune, she operated a hair salon outside of Saigon, Vietnam.

Pepper can now be found in the nail salon located at 306 Highway 11, but will relocate to an adjoining suite in the same building in the near future.

Poe said his wife is an advanced microblading artist, who can provide ombré, micro shading, traditional microblading and permanent makeup to the lips and eye shadow services.

Microblading is a technique similar to tattooing, but injects ink into a shallower layer of the epidermis using a hand held multi-needle tool.

Poe said the results of a microblading session can last a year to three years.
