7 Success Tips For Microblading Training and Certification Course
So, you’ve weighed the pros and cons of becoming a microblading artist and you’ve decided it’s a perfect fit for you! Congratulations! A career in this field can definitely be exciting and empowering (not to mention lucrative)! But, it’s not always easy to know where to begin. Thus, to make sure you get started right, here are 7 success tips for choosing a microblading training and certification course!
Experience is Everything
Of course, you have to make sure your trainer or mentor actually works in the industry. Now, this might seem like a “no-brainer”. However, there are no state or universal standards for operating a training academy. Thus, in a bid to make more money, some artists often begin advertising training courses while still working with their first few clients and establishing themselves in the industry.
Make Sure Your Trainer Has Worked with Hundreds of Clients
You’ve read that right! Make sure that your chosen trainer has worked on hundreds of clients and has already established themselves in the field. Why? Well, consider this: microblading is a service that requires precision and accuracy. Not to mention, there are nuances of the service that only come with time and experience.
If your trainer or mentor has barely worked with 10 clients, there is no way they will be able to demonstrate the skills you need to learn. Your tuition fee will not convert into the practical experience you need to become a professional.
Moreover, working with different clients is the only way to have enough experience with all skin tones and textures. And with this experience, they will be able to guide you through all the hurdles you will encounter as a new artist in the industry.
Look Beyond the Basics
When choosing a microblading training and certification course, you must make sure that your training provider can equip you with ALL the knowledge you need to work in the industry. Ask to see a detailed Itinerary of the course. If they are unable to provide this to you, don’t walk, run! This means they can’t guarantee comprehensive, effective training.
What to Look for in a Microblading Training Course?
You have to check if their course covers more than just the basics of the procedure such as measuring, numbing, and stroke positions and patterns. Make sure they also address items such as sanitation, health regulation, contraindications, and proper aftercare. Knowing all these will help you establish a good foundation in the industry.
Hands-on Support Makes a Difference
Microblading is a craft with its own complexities. It is virtually impossible to learn its detailed and skilled art, plus the hair-stroke techniques in only a matter of days. Hence, when choosing a microblading training and certification course, remember that thorough and experienced support is invaluable.
Aside from their hands-on tutorial and guidance, make sure that your mentors will give you the chance to practice the craft on your own. To have a full and comprehensive understanding of the whole procedure, sustained training or practice, over a long period of time is needed. To give you an idea, at BrowBeat, we find our students feel most confident entering the field after about 150-200 hours of training and practice.
A Complete Kit Is a Must
In choosing a microblading training and certification course, make sure that all the supplies are included!
While most training courses will provide all the necessary tools and supplies, there are training academies out there that follow an a la carte format. This can add anywhere from $500 – $1,000 to the total cost. Ouch! At BrowBeat Microblading Training & Certification Academy, however, you’ll get everything you need in your kit without any additional cost!
Check the Training Provider’s License and Credentials
Ok, another “no-brainer” here but it’s definitely worth touching on!
When choosing a microblading training and certification course provider, make sure all of their trainers or mentors are licensed to practice the craft. While a license is needed to perform the procedure, it is not required to teach microblading. Hence, it’s not impossible to find a self-professed mentor who’s not armed with one.
Moreover, if your prospective trainers have let their license lapse, it’s a clear indication that they are no longer working on clients in a regular fashion. Consider this a red flag as microblading, truly is a skill that if you don’t use it, you lose it.
Find Trustworthy Testimonials
In choosing a microblading training and certification course, the clients’ reviews and testimonials are your friends! Just make sure to find ones that are recent and relevant (i.e., don’t heed testimonials from 5 years ago).
Also, aside from the training provider’s website, be sure to check out their Google, Yelp, and social media pages as well. These are where real clients tell their real experiences! You can even ask beforehand who your mentor at the academy would be and see what their real-life clients are saying about them. Think about it, if they aren’t doing great work as an artist, how can you expect them to teach you to?
The Before and Afters Matter
This one goes hand in hand with the one above. Before and afters are like your calling card in the microblading industry and are a wonderful indication of skill and artistry. Ask yourself, would I want this person to do my brows? If not, you probably don’t want them teaching you either!
With that, make sure your trainers have a large body of work to show you, showcasing different angles, different ages, and different skin tones. Look at fresh and healed work. Also check if they haven’t been photoshopped to improve the overall look of the work, (sadly, about 80% of the before and afters we see have been edited or filtered to look more attractive).
If a training program is truly reputable, they won’t shrink from your questions. Instead, they will want to share this information with you, as all of these are huge endorsements for their program! Ask yourself, why wouldn’t they want to brag about their years of experience and amazing testimonials?
