Curious about the art of microblading? Our complete guide will teach you what is microblading and why so many people are choosing it over cosmetology school.You’ve always been obsessed with all things beauty.You’re the first to try out a new eyeshadow palette, you were overdrawing your lips long before Kylie came along, and you could write a book on the importance of good eyebrows. While you’ve definitely thought about attending beauty school, the truth is that it takes a long time to graduate — and is seriously expensive. Plus, you want to focus on helping your clients to get that perfect eyebrow arch. You want to learn the fine art of microblading instead. But what is microblading, and why is learning how to do it a great investment in your future? Read on to find out.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is actually a semi-permanent tattoo on the eyebrow area that helps to create the look of fuller, well-shaped brows. The artist uses a tiny tool that small needles that create individual strokes that mimic the look of eyebrow hairs. Because the needles don’t penetrate the skin but instead add pigmentation only to the skin’s outer epidermis layer, the results look incredibly natural. Microblading is an excellent alternative to tattooed brows because the pigment doesn’t penetrate the deeper layer of skin, and because the stokes are much finer in microblading. Plus, because clients’ eyebrows are numbed before the procedure, they won’t feel much pain — unlike the tattoo experience. So, how long does microblading last? Usually, microbladed brows last for about 18 months, with some clients requiring routine touch-ups. Microblading allows you to create bespoke eyebrows for your clients. You can make decisions about the shape and arch based on the client’s preferences, face shape, and even their skin and hair color.

Why You Should Learn Microblading

Let’s talk about why it’s such a great skill to learn. First of all, microblading and other semi-permanent/permanent makeup treatments are on the rise across the globe. This means that you’ll be able to have a steady stream of clients and a stable income as soon as you learn how to do it. Additionally, unlike other kinds of cosmetology and esthetics, you don’t have to have a license to start microblading. Plus, learning how to microblade is much faster than attending beauty school for a year. You can start your career after as few as four days of training. Above all, it allows you to help people gain self-confidence and love the way they look.  Low investment low risk approachNormally cosmetic school will take you anywhere from 2-3 year to complete a full curriculum before earning a living. The average income for recent grads is approximately $12-$15/ hour. Having to wait 2 years to find out whether or not you like what you do and can support your cost of living with that salary seems like a long time. Why not start after 4 days and see if its worth going the full 2 years. The most challenging part of a beauty career is client development. Learning how to get new client, cultivate and nurture those clients and delivering a service at the same time take 2-3 years to learn. It is easier to be successful after you have spent a few years developing your own client relationships than it is to use your skills on people who don’t know you.
