Below are the top five technical skills that a microblading course should teach you.

1 Knowing your client skin type

Before you begin the procedure, it’s important to understand your client’s skin type. If they have oily or acne-prone skin then you might want to opt for a lighter pigment colour that won’t stick out as much on their face. More often than not some customization is necessary to achieve the best results. Your microblading course will delve into colour types and how to match this with your client skin tone.

2 Shaping

Understanding eyebrow shapes is key – Every brow is different, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to microblading them. You’ll need to know how to analyze your client’s natural eyebrows and then recreate that shape with the help of a blade. This can take some training, but once you get the hang of it your work will be just as good as any brow specialist out there.

3 Aftercare

Understand the importance of correct aftercare for microblading eyebrows. This means you’ll need to be able to give your clients a proper timeline and instructions on how they should care for their brows, as well as what products should or shouldn’t be used during that time. It’s also always good practice to have some post-treatment care kits on hand for this very reason.

4 Measuring for a perfect brow

Make sure you know how to measure your client’s eyebrow size. This is a really important step before you begin the microblading process, especially if they have scarring or uneven brows from previous work. As part of your learning, you will be shown how to measure the distance from your client’s eyebrow to their nose and how far out from the inner corner of their eyebrows should begin. As a result, your client’s brows look naturally placed and even.

5 Depth

Having a good understanding of how to do microblading in the right depth is crucial. This means you’ll want to make sure that your blade goes into their skin in a way where it’s not too deep, but also not so shallow either. If your strokes are too shallow, you will only be able to touch the outer layer of the skin or the epidermis, meaning the pigment will not be absorbed and will not last very long. Too deep and you may cause scarring and irritation for your client.

Using the proper amount of pressure when microblading will ensure that you get perfect results!

So there you have it! Five of the most important skills to know when it comes to microblading eyebrows. With a microblading course, you will be able to perfect these techniques and give your clients beautiful, natural-looking brows that will last for months. Ready to get started?
