No! There are some state exams that you will need to complete in order to begin your training; however, you don't need to be a cosmetologist or esthetician to learn microblading.
Our prices vary and change throughout the year. To learn more about payment options and pricing please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note deposits and payments for all products, all courses online and all in-person live courses and training can not be refunded and are non refu
We use a combination of online learning as well as an in-person practical exam to train microbladers. You will complete a series of online modules (submit homework, get feedback, take quizzes) and then you will sign up for the practical potion where we will work on brow mapping, improving your stroke patterns, and finally microblading your first model.
Ideally yes, and you need to share a picture of your model with your instructor prior to your session. If you cannot find a model, we can help connect you with someone; however there is a $75 fee for this.
Microblading is designed to lightly scratch the surface of the skin. This should not be painful. In addition, we use topical anesthetics to ease any discomfort for our clients. Most people rate the pain level between a 1-3 on a scale of 1-10 ( 10 beging extremely painful). We typically use numbing cream to help ease any discomfort but the truth is... beauty is pain (but SO worth every second)
Microblading is a semi-permanent method of tattooing that ideally lasts up to 2 years in the skin depending on the skin type. This technique requires an eight week touch up after the initial session to complete the brows. Additionally, clients must return annually for a color boosting session to touch up any color that may have faded. You should plan to come back in for a touch-up appointment about 8 weeks after your first session.
You should expect to spend about 2.5 hours at your first appointment. What will take the most time is mapping your brows, the actual application of the pigment itself is relatively quick. Touch ups and preliminary consultation appointments also require less time than the first-visit.
The cost of your service will depend on the results you are looking for and the experience level of your artist. In general however, you should expect to spend between $300 and $750 on your new brows.
There is a 10 day healing period. During that time you will need to avoid water saturation of the brows and sweating (so no working out). For more information on exactly how to care for your brows after microblading, read our article about Before & After Care.
Unfortunately microblading and babies don't go well together. It's best to wait until you have given birth and finished breastfeeding to have your brows done.
Previous tattoos don't always exclude you from microblading, but the procedure becomes a little more complicated. A consultation with your technician is required before booking an appointment. In some cases, removal or lightening of the previous tattoo is requirement in order to achieve the desired look. We offer removal/ lightening service for such cases.
The appointment process to create your beautiful, new, 3D brows will take about two and a half hours from start to finish. The session will include a thorough consultation, brow mapping/sculpting, skin numbing, choosing your pigment and then microblading. Future appointments require less time because they are designed to reinforce the work done in the initial session.
