How to Start a Career in Microblading
If you are in the beauty industry and are thinking of expanding your skillset to include microblading services or if you are just starting out and want to begin a career in microblading, there are some steps you should take to set yourself up for success. It is important to note that microblading is a very detailed and intricate service and it takes a lot of time, dedication and practice to become good at it. It is not something you can just jump into and wing, but if you put in the time and practice, it can become an extremely lucrative and satisfying career!
We’ve outlined some steps you should take if you are interested in starting your career in microblading.
1. Make sure this is something you really want to pursue: oftentimes people decide they want to start a career in microblading because it is the latest trend and seems like a quick and easy way to make good money. Yes! You can certainly make a great living from a microblading career, but it is important to note that you will need a lot of training before you start making the big bucks. If you look at what it really takes to become skilled in microblading and you decide that you are passionate about it and want to put in the time, your next step is finding and choosing the right training course.
2. Choosing the right microblading training: This is one of the most important steps you will take. It is so important that you choose a highly skilled and reputable trainer who will teach you the right way to microblade. This is the step you do not want to cut corners on. If you choose a training course because it is cheap or quick, you could be doing yourself a complete disservice. Before you choose the training program, investigate the person who will be training you and make sure he or she has a reputation for success and has a portfolio with exceptional results and highly rated client reviews. You will want to learn from the best so you can learn to be the best yourself.
3. Get documentation that you completed the training: once you choose the training course, you will need to enroll and get started so you can complete the course. This will be a lot of work, but if you genuinely want a career in microblading, you will enjoy it and will complete the program eager and ready!
4. Look for an apprenticeship: once you receive your microblading certification, you will want to look for an apprenticeship immediately so you can continue to learn and practice. Practicing on real skin is so important as the more people you practice on the better you will become and the more confident you will be.
5. Get the equipment you need: this may seem like an obvious step, but in order to put your training to use and start working, you will need to get all the equipment you need. This is also a step where you do not want to cut corners! It is important to invest in high quality blades and equipment so you can do the best work.
6. Take lots of before and after pictures: be sure to take before and after pictures of every person you work on — even during training. This will show potential clients your work so they know they can trust you with their brows!
7. Apply for a job: while this step seems obvious, it is important to keep in mind that you may not get a high paying job right away. You may be hired as an assistant at first and that’s OK! This will allow you to continue to learn and grow and become the best at what you do!
