What you'll learn in this beauty course:

This is permanent powdered brow technique for clients who prefer fuller result than hairstrokes but still very soft. It’s a technique which looks like daily makeup done with eyebrow pencil or eyebrow shadow. The tails of the brow are darker and fade into a light beginning to the brow, giving a perfect Ombre makeup affect. The effects will be waterproof, smudge-proof and completely natural. 

Once qualified though, the rewards can be substantial. Treatments by licensed and insured technicians are charged at between $300 and $1000, depending upon skill and demographic. There’s no huge investment in equipment or materials other than preparing your treatment area. It’s also a treatment that can make a lasting difference to clients with damaged, over-plucked or badly shaped brows and it can bring a huge amount of job satisfaction.

In theory, you don’t need to be qualified to perform microblading but, in practice, you won’t be able to get a licence for your premises or treatment insurance if you do not have proper training. Performing the treatment while unlicensed and uninsured leaves you exposed to legal action and it is, at the least, irresponsible, to carry out any invasive treatment with lasting effects, if you have not had the proper training.

How is Microblading different than Machine Tattooing?

Microblading is not the same as cosmetic tattooing carried out using a machine. Microblade strokes lightly score the surface layers of the skin (Epidermis) while machine tattoos penetrate into the deeper layers (Dermis). The surface layers are renewed over time, so microblade strokes will naturally fade while pigment implanted by a machine will remain deep in the skin. Microblading therefore, can be a semi-permanent makeup technique. Follow-up appointments will be necessary to maintain the full effect. 

So What Makes the Best Microblading Training?

You will firstly need to learn how to perform the treatment safely, how to avoid infection and cross-contamination; both for your client’s sake, and your own. How to identify contraindications and ensure that your client suffers no ill effects.

You will need to be able to design eyebrows that compliment and enhance your client’s face. Recognizing how the eyebrow affects our perception of face shape.

Color theory is a must, not only knowing how to match pigments, but recognizing skin undertones and understanding how they will affect color selection.

Last but not least, you will need expert instruction in the microblading procedure itself. From drawing a balanced and well proportioned template to implanting the pigment with the manual pen at the correct depth in the skin. Other aspects of manual brow tattooing such as pain management, skin stretching and aftercare must also be covered in sufficient detail to give you the confidence to get on and actually perform the procedure as soon as possible.

There are definitely a lot of options when it comes to semi-permanent/PMU makeup training so you might ask what makes our microblading course different?

Our Microblading Masterclass covers the A-Z of semi-permanent manual eyebrow tattooing over 4 days of intensive instruction.

You will get to perform your first treatment on a live model in the class, with every step supervised by a master eyebrow artist.
