Microblading Courses

If you are interested in starting a career in permanent makeup, microblading is a great start! This is a popular service that continues to grow in demand, making it a lucrative choice for those who want to start their own business. 

At Cosmetic Design Academy, we’ve put together some tips on how to start your own microblading business. 

What You Need To Know About Microblading

Microblading is a type of permanent makeup procedure for the eyebrows. This process can help provide clients with fuller, more defined brows. Microblading is done by depositing pigment into the skin, creating hair strokes to create a natural, fuller-looking set of eyebrows. 

During this technique, you will use a manual blade to draw thin, hair-like strokes in between the client’s natural eyebrow hairs to create a fuller look. 

Starting a microblading business can be a very profitable career because of its popularity and high demand for microblading. Similar to the nail industry- everyone is getting eyebrows. With a business plan and a passion for the art of beauty, you can create a successful and lucrative career.

Getting Started in the Mircroblading Business

When beginning your career in microblading, you will first need to take a course and earn a certification. This can be done by taking a quality course through the Cosmetic Design Academy. 

During this course, you will learn everything you need to know about microblading, including color theory, tools, pigments, mapping, and how to avoid cross-contamination to keep yourself and your clients safe. You will also have the opportunity to train on props and live models.

Throughout your coursework, we recommend that you practice your skill as much as possible. This will help you be prepared to deliver great results.

Once you have your certification, CDA  will guide you on how to obtain the necessary professional licenses for your location to ensure your microblading business is operating legally.

You will need your certificate of completion from the Cosmetic Design Academy. Depending on your state or country, you may need to follow additional guidelines.

Once you’re certified and licensed, you can start searching for a location for your business. Many technicians choose to work in a salon, med spa, or doctor’s office or to open their own private office. Carefully choose your location and then make it a comfortable and welcoming environment for your clients. CDA will provide you with a list of the proper basic equipment you need to set up your business, such as a good bed, great lighting, a range of pigments, and an array of disposable supplies. 

Once you have a treatment room, you will need to determine your pricing. When you’re first starting, you may need to begin by charging less than you may want to until you gain more experience. 

You will want to look at other microblading services in or around your area and see what they are charging. If you charge significantly more than other salons, it can cause you to lose potential clients. You can raise your prices once you build your reputation. Keep in mind that you don’t want to charge too low, as this could cause potential clients to doubt your experience. 

It’s also important to invest in marketing. This includes a website that states all necessary client information and demonstrates your unique brand. You should also start social media pages and stay active on them for your business. You can use these platforms to post before and after photos, advertise specials, and more. 

To get started building a reputation, consider a referral program to encourage others to refer their family and friends to you. Work to instill a professional, trustworthy, and friendly image with your clients. 

How Much Money Can I Expect to Make in Microblading?

On average, a microblading session costs around $600 and lasts about an hour and a half. Some can make a 4-figure income in just one day of work. Additionally, clients will eventually need to come back for touchups year after year, increasing your income.
