Hairdressers wield scissors on a daily basis but what about blades? … (and we don’t mean for shaving)! You might be surprised…
If your hairdresser or salon owner, you are always looking for additional revenue streams. The fact of the matter is, a career in hair artistry can be very lucrative, if you’re fully booked, that is! To attract the most clients, appeal to the widest audience and fill the most slots, is to offer a wide variety of services. Think about it, how many flyers or Facebook ads have you seen for balayage workshops or braiding intensives? Hundreds! The market is flooded! These are the services all hairdressers are learning. If you learn this now, you’re already behind the curve! What you should be asking yourself is, how can I be ahead of the curve? What is the next big trend? Instead of chasing trends, you need to be making trends! Otherwise, you are already starting behind the finish line! So, what if you had something truly unique to offer, something no one else could do? Something you could learn in your spare time that would help you add thousands of dollars in revenue per month? Sounds too good to be true? It isn’t! We promise!
What is microblading? Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup, in which, ink or “pigment” is deposited in the surface layers of the skin to mimic the appearance of natural brow hair. This 3D brow technique is cutting edge and is quickly replacing other brow shaping methods (threading, tinting, etc) as it lasts two years ass opposed to two months! This procedure is popular among celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Mila Kunis, and Adele. This is the next big Hollywood trend! Think about, it can save your clients exponential amounts of time, If they spend 30 mins a day on their brows that’s over 180 hours a year you are giving them back! People will pay a lot of money for that kind of time back!
One of the benefits of already being in the beauty industry is that you already have the studio space and now you will be able to fill otherwise empty appointment slots. Do you get a discount on your rent when the space is just standing empty? Of course not! That is just money wasted! Capitalize on that existing space and fill those dead times with lucrative microblading treatments! Another benefit of already being established is a built in client base, market to existing clients offer a referral reward system or provide a discount when the service is done as an add on, the opportunities are endless, all without spending a single marketing dollar! And finally, you get the benefit of credibility, people will trust that you are knowledgeable with respect to microblading since you are already in a beauty focused career tangential knowledge is often assumed. You are borrowing credibility from your work as a hairdresser before you have established it as a microblader. If you have never steered them wrong before when it comes to hair, they will assume you will never steer them wrong when it comes to brows. Indeed, the two most difficult parts of working as a microblading technician, when first starting out, are number one, establishing clientele and number two, establishing credibility. You will have both of these out of the gate, providing you with a significant advantage over your microblading competitors, and offering such a unique service among hair professionals will sail you past those competitors as well! You are uniquely positioned for success!
But wait.. there’s even more good news! Your cosmetology training is all you need! You don’t need to be an aesthetician or go back to school. All you need is some specialized training, which you can do from the comfort of your own home and to register with the health department, once your training is complete!
So, what does microblading training entail? While every training program will be slightly different, our program consists of three parts. Part one is the two day intensive in-person workshop, this is where you will learn how to prepare for and perform the procedure as well as a basic understanding of color theory, healing and aftercare, and state regulations. Next, is the distance learning portion of the program, this is where you will receive additional instruction, as well as, practice and perfect your treatments, you can do this anytime, anywhere from the convenience of your smartphone, computer or tablet. The third and final part is group instruction and interaction with your mentor. This is where you will be able to interact directly with your mentor and share experiences with other students, a virtual classroom if you will. This is also where you will submit practice assignments and receive feedback. Once you have completed all of the required practice assignments, you will be given your microblading certification. It really is that easy! Most of our students finish the program in a matter of a few months, practicing only 2-3 hours a day!
Right about now, you’re probably thinking, ‘That all sounds great but how much money can it make me?’ Fair question! We all need money to live, if we didn’t need money, none of us would work, right? Sure, I believe you really do love hair, but if you could you would work less and relax more, wouldn’t you? The fact is working only makes sense if it’s generating us income. That’s why this is possibly, the most important question of all. Microblading treatments are extremely lucrative! With microblading, the client is primarily paying for your precision and skill, material costs are extremely low, a few dollars per treatment, so the cost to the artist is mostly just their time, making the margins incredible! The average cost of a microblading treatment is between $500-800 with the average treatment time between 2 and 4 hours, you can easily make $200-$400 per hour of your time! Now, that’s a value you won’t find every day!
So now, I have a question for you. What are you waiting for? If you’re reading this, you probably aren’t making the money you want or need to be making, this means you can’t afford to wait! As the famous saying goes, ‘Six months from now, you’ll wish you had started today.’ Don’t get stuck with regret six months from now, start today and be making the money you’ve always dreamed about six months from now.
