Microblading is both artistry and perfection. To combine both in a makeup career is the way to go.
In order to prepare yourself in this career you have to be very sure of your capabilities as both an artist and a perfectionist. One without the other may not go well when it’s time to start the service on an actual client; this is a time consuming and precision focused service. For every hair-like stroke of the microneedle you and your client are both becoming more comfortable with the process and anxious for the end result. Now in order to prepare yourself for working on an actual client, these are the 5 key things you need to know before your microblading training.
- Training means training. There is not one microblading artist that has gotten each eyebrow perfect on the first go. Remember that patience is a virtue so take your time and make sure that you practice all of the techniques that you have learned during the training. Once you think that you are ready, practice some more and practice once again before you decide to charge an actual client. You want to be confident and you want to evoke confidence in front of your client.
- You are not going to make a ton of money right away. This is the one thing that a lot of new microblading artists think. They believe that because they see the possibility to make $2k per day, it is going to happen. In order for this to happen you as the artist has to have a timing of 2 hours per microblading treatment and 4 clients per day. This means that you will be working more than 8 hours a day.
- Each client has a different eyebrow shape. You have probably been spoiled with beautiful eyebrows since birth and maybe some of your clients have been as well which means that you haven’t ran into the asymmetrical, sparse brows. Yes, they do exist. Be sure that you pay close attention during your training so you know how to shape and measure eyebrows accurately so no client leaves unhappy.
- Microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. This is both true and false. It is true in a sense that pigment is being injected into the skin and false because the needles are different. Unlike tattooing eyebrows, there is more than one needle that is doing the work, it is a microneedle that allows for the faux but realistic and hair like strokes to actually imitate the hair growth and preferred shape of eyebrows.
- Refer back to #1. You must practice. In order to become the best microblading artist you have to practice and continue practicing. There is always more than one way to do things so it’s always fun to learn new ways that both cut time and improve your skills. Oh and I almost forgot to mention that once you are really confident, marketing and advertising is all u7p to you.
