This is a question that everyone interested in learning microblading will ask themselves and the answer most of the time is “this looks very easy to do.” Well, let me tell you it’s not.
Microblading isn’t just about buying a blade holder, some inks and drawing like a pencil in someone’s face. Microblading is a skill, and a fine one so if you’re looking for an easy way to make money this won’t be a good option for you. Learning microblading requires hard work, dedication, persistence and commitment and following all this you can satisfactions such as recognition, fulfillment and monetary gains.
Microblading is all about getting good healed results and several factors come into play to achieve this such as: technique, aftercare instructions, skin conditions, and client lifestyle. Every factor mentioned must be learned and understood in-depth to be able to obtain good results in microblading. If a technician is not properly trained and inform in all the areas that come into play, she’ll have a very hard time getting good results and growing her business.
To learn microblading, you need to:
Practice for weeks and weeks to get good at handling the tool and drawing proper strokes. For this part you need to work hard and be very persistent. Getting this right is a matter of repetition and having the mentality of constant improvement as well as self-criticizing yourself (positively).
Spend several hours studying the theoretical aspects of the treatment and really understand them. This theory involves learning how to interact with a client, how to carry out a proper consultation, how to know if the client is eligible for the treatment, know the right aftercare measures, know how to handle clients after the treatment during their aftercare process, know how to assess healed results and address the situation to advise the client, etc.
Be willing to work on several models without pay. To do microblading properly there are certain things that need to be right, like stroke depth for example, you need to absolutely learn depth before seeing a client and this only is learn by knowing the signals and applying it in your technique and for this practice is needed.
About 30% of the people that enroll in our training don’t obtain a certificate. Why? Simply because they’re not committed enough to become good at the skill. They were looking for the easy way to make money, sure, a lot of them might be doing the treatment regardless but we don’t believe this to be a smart option especially when you’re dealing with someone’s face. We have high expectations from our students, because we know how serious this treatment is and also because we care about the success of our students.
Microblading is a wonderful career and an amazing opportunity if you’re looking for success but by no means it’s an easy path to riches. The pay is great there’s no question about it but you don’t want to belong to the huge group of untrained artists looking to make a quick buck and find themselves out of business after 2 months of operation.
