Hi, I’m Irene Kennerley


In 1992, SofTap invented the world's first curved needles for shading. During their debut in Hong Kong, these needles were used in the early forms of microblading.

Fast forward to 2014, when microblading boomeranged back to the U.S. There was a demand for gentle ways to achieve this look--and that is when SofTap created GenuLine--the very first disposable hand tools for gentle hair strokes.
