What is microblading?
Eyebrows have definitely earned more recognition in recent years for their ability to enhance the face shape and other facial features.
Microblading is a form of semi permanent makeup whereby a microblading artist will carefully apply pigment to the face with a stroke technique. This will help to achieve your desired brow shape. Microblading is a non-invasive procedure and will usually be completed after a numbing cream has been applied.
Using a manual method means that the microblading artist has more control over the eyebrows. After an initial appointment, it is likely you would be invited for another appointment a few weeks later, this is for touch ups and to ensure the client is happy with the results.
Before microblading services have taken place, a consultation is needed to discuss the client’s skin and their ideal outcome from the procedure. This means that they can have the most specialised treatment based on their circumstances.
Anyone can have a microblading procedure, as long as they are over the age of 18. Some people choose to have semi permanent makeup due to sparse brows, for others it may be to achieve a fuller, more enhanced look. The reasoning doesn’t matter but what does matter is that your client feels good when they leave.

In the microblading industry, theoretical knowledge is very important, but so is practical knowledge. So it’s a very good idea to look for a training course that allows for a hands-on approach too.

We know how important it is to have hands-on experience when training, which is why each of our courses use live models. We believe this helps our training artists to feel more confident when they leave the course.

Finding the best microblading course
A quality microblading course will not only teach you how to microblade, but also teach you the ins and outs of health and safety and even how to deal with clients.
To ensure safety, the course should also be accredited by a relevant professional body. This means that it has been verified and is safe to participate in.
Our course is verified by ABT and CPD Accreditation. Upon completion of the course, you will also receive microblading certification.
Health and safety when microblading
There are strict health and safety regulations that must be adhered to when completing a microblading treatment.
Due to the procedure utilising a needle, infection control is paramount. Not only will you have to aim to reduce the risks, you will also have to present documentation to clients to make them aware of it too.
When completing a treatment on the eyebrows or elsewhere on the skin using pigment, you will have to perform a patch test. This is where you apply a small amount of pigment onto the skin, usually behind the ear.
Clients will be asked to monitor any feelings of irritation or itchiness they experience over a specified time period. The test must be completed at least 24-48 hours before the treatment takes place.
When you finish the course and become a microblading technician, you will have all of the tools you need to ensure that you provide a high quality and safe service to each client.
How much does a microblading artist make?
As with many careers, with microblading, there is a chance to become employed by another company or become self employed and be your own boss. You might even be wondering whether to be a local technician or work further afield.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both, you just have to take your time and consider what’s most important to you.
You might be thinking about the money, in which case a microblading job could earn you an average salary of between £30,000 and £50,000 per year.
Those with their own business in semi permanent makeup have the potential to earn even more money. Remember that if you’re just starting up your business you’ll need to work hard to refine your skills and gain more clients.
Is becoming a microblading artist worth it?
Microblading is an incredibly rewarding career. Often clients can attend their first appointment lacking confidence and wanting a change. It’s great when they leave the treatment feeling happier and you can already see that they are feeling more confident.
Aside from that, it doesn’t seem like microbladed brows will drop off from fashion trends any time soon. Microblading is great for building a thicker brow while also adapting to the latest beauty trends.
All in all, eyebrow microblading is a great idea for a new business and we can provide some of the best training around to help produce highly skilled beauty therapists who enjoy their microblade training.
