What to Know Before Starting Your Beauty Business

If you’re reading this now, it’s most likely because you have a beauty business idea that you want to share with the world. Let me be the first to congratulate you on taking the first steps of making your ideas a reality.

While there are many things to consider when starting any business (startup costs, taxes, location, etc.), there are a plethora of industry-specific details that we can not stress enough when taking your first step into starting your beauty business. Here are the most important things to consider going forward:

What Sets You Apart?

There will always be another salon down the road or makeup brand on the same store aisle, which only highlights the need to stand out.

When it comes to gaining traction and retaining your customer base, the biggest advantage you can give yourself is to be original. Being a leader of innovation will do wonders to help you stand out.

Part of the success we have at Zoe Milan Studios is the result of combining celebrity quality microblading, eyebrow, and permanent makeup solutions, with the mission to spread the techniques used in-house through live training and online classes.

Research, Research, Research!

Ask yourself these questions: What is the target market I’m trying to sell to? Who are my potential competitors? How should I price my products and services? What do I need to get started? What do I already have?

At the end of the day, you are trying to run a business, which means giving due consideration to your model and how you will run your company. Your vision and what you want to bring to the world is essential, but not to the neglect of finances.

Know the Law

Like any industry, your beauty business will be subject to a number of regulations. Makeup and other beauty products fall under the scrutiny of the FDA; it’s critical to know if an ingredient or product requires certain labeling requirements.

Knowing what you need to disclose on your packaging and detailing safe use of your product is paramount to covering yourself legally.

On the business front, it’s important to understand what licenses are required to operate. Requirements for licenses vary from state to state; in the United States, a good place to start your research is the Small Business Administration’s website.

Get the Word Out

All the time and effort put into your business would be for nothing if you don’t promote your brand. For many small businesses, this can be a challenge since it’s unlikely that you have the funds to place a well-crafted commercial on a prime-time TV spot. Thankfully there are other ways to spread the word!

Many industry-specific conventions provide opportunities to do some networking and outreach. This is a great way to generate interest before launch.

Smaller scale ads are possible through locally owned businesses. As long as you aren’t going to be direct competition, many small business owners would be more than happy to let you put up a flyer or two on their storefronts.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

Secrets to Standing Out in a Business of Beauty

In an industry that is constantly changing depending on whatever look is the trendiest at the time, staying on top of whatever is popular in the latest beauty developments can really make a difference especially when trying to express to your clientele, you care about their satisfaction. Showing that you are passionate about your client’s experience can help you develop an identity for your business, and in the long run, help you stand out from your competition. Below are just some of a few helpful ways to ensure that you provide great experiences for your customers so that your business not only flourishes but stands out amongst a potentially long list of other businesses in the beauty department trying to make a name for themselves.

If you are looking to stand out in a popular market, asking for customer feedback is the first step to success. Checking out the competition is a good step in keeping up with current trends but be sure not to let it use up all your time. Developing your own brand is just as important as keeping up with the competition, so make sure to prioritize your goals accordingly before you start recklessly making decisions that don’t necessarily benefit you or your clients. You should always be looking for ways to improve your business no matter how well or how poorly your business is doing. It can be very fruitful to always be thinking of ways your business can improve and consider what improvements can be made to provide better customer care and service.

A Practical Guide on How to Keep Up with the Competition

Some of your time should be used to check the local area to see what is missing. When competing with several other salons you want to be different and stand out, so finding a problem in your area for your clientele and solving it can ensure customers will remember your salon’s dedication. This is one of the best ways to keep your salon in tip-top shape and have a healthy number of customers. Be different. Have an identity people can relate to and make sure you are expressing your passion for beauty products to express your business’s expertise in beauty treatment. If you show great dedication to your clientele, they are more likely to choose you and stay loyal to your salon. Great service is key, but it is really the passion that keeps people coming back to your salon over others. Be sure not to undervalue the importance of keeping your customers satisfaction.

Use social media as a tool to establish new ideas and stay in the loop on local trends. For example, Twitter can be a great tool to keep in touch with your clients and show them that you value their satisfaction even after they walk out of your door. Keeping in touch and responding to customer’s feedback on social media shows your devotion and the effort your business puts in making their experience in your salon the best they can be, even after the fact. Standing out from the competition always comes from how well you treat your customers and shows them that you are invested in their satisfaction.

Providing Excellent Customer Service

If you are still short on ideas on how to improve your salon, try putting yourself in your customer’s shoes. Ask, “If I was a customer, what would I be looking for in my salon experience?” What is important to you is likely the same as what is important to your potential customers as well. Think of your experiences and use them to apply new ideas to your business. If you like going to a business and being greeted with a friendly smile at the door when you walk in, then use that idea for your business. It’s the small things that have the potential to make a huge impact, so don’t be afraid to use your own great experiences as a baseline on how you should be treating your customers at your own business.

When you are recruiting staff, be sure that they are involved with giving your customers the best experience possible. In the world of beauty businesses, customer service is one most of the most valuable traits a beauty salon can have. Employee’s showing their dedication to making sure that they give their customer’s the best customer service available are the ones you should be investing in. If you are planning to hire employees fresh from training, remember that you have an opportunity to shape them the way they can best represent you and your business. Fresh employees may lack experience, but they aren’t always necessarily a bad investment when considering hiring new employees.

Keeping up with a forever evolving industry can be challenging at times, but it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think. Keep it simple and keep your customer in mind and your hard work and dedication will eventually pay off and transform your business into a successful and thriving beauty salon.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

What Everybody Ought to Know About Microblading

While a pair of earrings and a stylish necklace are great accessories, everyone knows that your brows are what count. Regardless of the kind of style and shape your eyebrows take form, keep in mind that your brows are the only accessory that genuinely can determine your faces frame and transform your face’s features so don’t underestimate them. There are tools to help shape and transform your brows to how you want, but there is also a newer and more exciting method to think about. Microblading gives you the option of having semi-permanent and natural looking results.

The technique of microblading utilizes a small pen-like device that is used to perform small, accurate strokes that simulate the presence of real hairs and has become extremely more popular in the past few months. With a super clean and natural look finish as well as minimal upkeep, microblading is an excellent option for anyone who wants to liven up their features.

Research your Technician

Do your research when looking for an appropriate technician for yourself and be sure to check the technician’s previous work. Researching a technician is a great way to gain insight on what to expect. A fast google search can provide you with information on your closest microblading technicians and a few pictures of the technician’s last results.

Be Prepared and Communicate

There are a few activities to avoid before having the procedure done so that everything goes as smoothly as possible. You should avoid plucking or waxing because your technician will use your measurements to determine the shape of your new brows. Also, avoid using any exfoliating skin care products 72 hours before the procedure as certain chemicals can inflame the skin.

Be sure and talk to your technician and be specific. The technician has to determine the size based on certain measurements to create the most natural finish. Although there is still flexibility regarding the thickness. Communication is essential to understanding how your technician is determining the shape and thickness.

Be Patient

It may be exciting and tempting to show off your new brows after you get them done but be sure to take steps towards proper post-application care. Avoid using make up around the affected area for ten days and try not to touch the area at all. Avoid swimming and tanning in the direct sunlight. Be sure to use the post-care cream with a cotton swab.

Keep in mind that microblading is a two-step process, so you shouldn’t expect immediate result after the procedure. The procedure affects everyone differently and it takes multiple procedures for the effects to be fully realized. Thicker skin, oily skin, different skin tones and pore sizes are all factors that can change the results. Don’t overdo it and get the procedure done as needed by how your skin heals.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

Microblading, Microshading, and Micro-feathering

So, what’s the difference? Unless you have been hiding under a rock lately, you have probably heard of microblading, the new semi-permanent version of eyebrow tattoos. Don’t worry. We’re not talking about a look that’s fake or unnatural; instead, the delicate, superfine strokes look supernatural and realistic in a way that they have never looked like before. Microblading’s recent popularity has spawned Microshading and micro feathering, two looks that are very different depending on your preferences. Here are some tips on how to spot the differences!

Microblading, A Lasting Look 

The original technique where it all started. The great aspect about microblading is that the work looks for just about anyone! Microblading is done by using a super fine pen instrument that is used to deposit pigment into the skin. Because the tip of the pen is so narrow and fine it creates patterns that are very convincing hair strokes to the naked eye. Another benefit comes from the technique being semi-permanent because the needle only reaches superficial layers of the skin. Prices for the procedure vary depending on the location, so expect a quality job to run somewhere between $700 to $1,500. Expect to have a touch up every month if you want the look to stay consistent.

Micro-feathering, A Blending Touchup

Micro-feathering is more specifically a form of microblading and is a new technique that creates natural fluffy looking eyebrows by using existing eyebrow hair as a base. You should expect Micro-feathering to be slightly more high maintenance when compared to microblading. It’s a two-part process and a growing out period that can last from six to twelve months. Six to eight weeks after the initial treatment and depending on how your skin responds, additional strokes are added.

The treatment typically doesn’t last as long as microblading, and everyone’s tends to respond differently to the treatment. Depending on many various factors Micro-feathering will usually last eight to 12 months.

Microshading, A Thick and Filled in Look

Microshading is more direct and creates the sensation of eyebrows being full and thick. It is done with either an electric hand tool or a manual tool which creates an effect that appears to look like eyebrow powder. The technique used to create this effect uses more of a method that uses multiple dots of pigments that is like the microblading’s pencil strokes. The difference is that microshading’s effect is semi-permanent.

Good News!

Theirs ultimately no difference in the lifespan of microshading and microblading, so after your first touch-up, you have a solid year before you need to see your brow artist again!

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

What You Need to Know Before Going Under the Needle

We can all safely agree that having great eyebrows makes a huge difference in your looks because they frame your face. This is the basis for plucking and waxing when we’re younger, but unfortunately taking these actions can cause the hair on your brows to stop growing back. Thankfully, there’s microblading; however, microblading isn’t something you should do on a whim. Whoever does your eyebrows needs to be someone you trust because the results of the procedure will be on your face for the next 18 months to a year, but you also need to understand what microblading is like and that the immediate results of microblading may not be what you desired at first and that is all normal.  Below is all the information you need to know before deciding to have the microblading procedure done.

A Microblading procedure from start to finish typically takes an hour and a half to 2 hours. During this time, you will have a discussion, mark out your new brows, and get numbing gel before the procedure begins. The procedure can be uncomfortable and sting a little bit even with the numbing gel, but it’s not unbearable pain and no worse than what we go through every day with plucking and threading our eyebrows.

After the procedure, your eyebrows will look perfect…up close. It isn’t unusual when you look at the full effect to think that the eyebrows look the wrong color and belong on someone else’s face. They may look especially strange within the first 24 hours. The brows can often look dark because the pigment that is rubbed into the tiny new hairs remains on the skin and in the miniature scabs that will form as you heal. Slowly the surface will begin to fade, but to get a truly natural and understated look takes about two weeks.

During that first couple of days, there are a couple of things you need to do to.

  1. Use the Healing Balm provided. Most salons should give you a jar of healing balm to take home. Apply this balm throughout the day or whenever you  don’t mind looking like your foreheads a little wet to prevent scarring.
  2. Keep your eyebrows dry. Getting them wet can make you lose pigment and cause an infection.
  3. Go to the follow-up appointment. Most likely this appointment was part of your initial fee, and you need it anyway. About six weeks after your first visit you need to go to the salon to fill in any gaps that didn’t take pigment well or add pigment where it may not have lasted as well as it should have.

 

That’s the basics of microblading, but one thing we must emphasize and are constantly saying on this blog is that microblading is a commitment. It takes time and effort and can’t just be done and over with. For your health and the best-looking brows, you must follow certain procedures and make sure you are informed and trust the technician you hire. For more information on microblading and permanent makeup check out our other blog posts at zoemilanstudios.com.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

You’re Never Too Old

Dame Helen Mirren revealed the secret to her stunningly youthful looks. The 72-year-old actress and face of L’Oreal Cosmetics hasn’t been seriously interested in makeup for several years and was even quoted as saying “The irony is that – the older you get – the less you care. I think: ‘God, when I was young, and probably had much better skin, I wouldn’t dream of going out without mascara,” and “Now I really don’t mind. I mean, if you’re taking your dog for a walk at eight in the morning it doesn’t really matter.” However, after getting the role of ‘The Queen’ for the theatre show The Audience, she confessed that bold brows are the backbone of her beauty routine, and she got them by microblading.

Helen noticed a difference in her confidence after microblading and said, “I’ll tell you what I had done recently which I love – I got my eyebrows tattooed. I was fed up with my brows barely being there, and when one of my girlfriends got it done, I thought they looked great. They’re very lightly and delicately done – but it means when I get up in the morning and I have no makeup on, at least I have eyebrows.”

Browologist Samantha Trace stated, “As we age, unfortunately, our hair becomes thinner and sparser, which for the brows can result in loss of shape and fullness. Great brows can frame and lift the face while opening the eyes, thanks to the treatment Microblading which Dame Helen Mirren’s revealed is the secret to her youthful look…”

Trace went on to explain how microblading works. Microblading uses tiny microneedles to embed pigment in the skin. These tiny needles create tiny pigment strokes that look like real hair. This “real hair” look is created by pulling the needle in the same direction of the hair growth. Trace said, “This technique of ‘hair stroke’ is the finest form of eyebrow tattooing. I see many women in their 70s/80s whose looks are transformed thanks to Microblading their eyebrows which boosts confidence as it can truly take off years. Over time the skin also thins, so using techniques that are light and delicately applied to the skin can create brows so natural looking it means when they wake up in the morning with no makeup on, at least the eyebrows are perfectly in place.”

Dame Helen Mirren remains an advocate for the beauty of older women and is famous for her insistence that her photos not be excessively touched up and her posting of photos without makeup, but even she became “Fed up” with the scarcely there brows. Thanks to her experimentation for her role as “The Queen,” she has discovered an effortless beauty secret in permanent makeup which takes her beauty to the next level.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

Back to the Basics: Growing Your Brow Business

Eyebrows have gradually become more and more important in the beauty industry. If you don’t believe me, just look at the many ways you can style your eyebrows: tweezing, waxing, threading, and microblading. While we normally talk about permanent makeup on this blog, today we want to go back to the basics and discuss some simple tips for growing a traditional brow service.

1. Don’t do the Pencil test

Contrary to popular belief the pencil test isn’t the only way to determine how a brow should be shaped, and it doesn’t guarantee you’ll have perfect brows. Ideally, your brow will begin at the bridge of your nose, but many people have eyebrows that are far apart, which can mess with the symmetry of your brow. You should only use a pencil to determine where the arch of the brow should be. This arch usually begins at the outer edge of the Iris.

2. Trace Before You Pluck

Over-tweezing is a notorious beauty problem. The skinny brow may have been popular in the 90s, but it is most definitely not now. The key to keeping your client happy is to only tweeze the stragglers. The easiest way to do this is to take a white pencil and draw a line across the top and the bottom of the brow. This will be your guide for hair removal.

3. Start a Brow Routine

Do you know someone who tweezes religiously, like almost every day? They have to do this because their eyebrow hairs are all on a different schedule. Brow hair grows in 20-30 day cycles. The goal is to let all the hairs grow in at the same time and then to pull it all out at the same time.

Your job as the beautician is to try to get your clients to stretch their appointments out to every three weeks to get them and keep them on a schedule.

4. Carry a variety of products

To give your clients the best possible treatment you should always have a large stock of post-hair removal products like antibiotic ointment, soothing oil, and antiseptic. These products can help you avoid redness, bumps, and breakouts. Having a variety of products will be an asset to your business, but be sure to use the right ones for your client’s skin type and personal preferences.

5. Offer a Free service

If you aren’t having much success working on brows, try offering a free service. Many stylists need time to get comfortable working on someone’s brows, and many people need time with a stylist to trust them to work on their face. You can get free practice by offering to style brows for free. If you did a good job, clients would often come back for more.

Today there are so many different ways to have your eyebrows done, and some businesses struggle to keep up with the ever-evolving world of beauty. Traditional brow artists may have trouble competing with the latest trends but going back to the basics and following the tips above can get you and your business back on track.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

What You Should Know Before Opening Your Microblading Business

Microblading is one of the hottest cosmetic industries right now and is continuing to grow as many people open their own microblading businesses. Some of these new business owners decided to share with Microblading Hub some of the things they wished they had known before starting their business, and now we want to share some of the key take aways with you.

1. Take Time to Find the right Mentor or Trainer

Many business owners stated that they were happy with the money and time they invested in a good trainer, while others wished they had spent more to get a really good trainer.

“In order to master your craft, you have to find the right course and trainer(s), invest a lot of $$$ and continue to learn different techniques and tips from as many pros as possible and practice practice practice. There are some Amazing trainers in the industry, so do your research beforehand, don’t be afraid to ask for references and make sure you check out their portfolio of work. Try and connect with as many people in the industry as possible as we only get better as a team and with one another.”  – Sally, Her Royal Highness Beauty

2. Keep Learning

No matter how long you have been in the industry continuing to learn about the latest techniques and the best ways to give a client a desired result is always a good idea.

“There are so many important things to learn it would be more ingredients and color theory. It is so important to learn the ingredients in the pigments and understand your clients skin type and skin tone…”- Kathy Tweedie Gray, Clemson Eye

3. Practice

You can’t just go to school and magically be ready to operate on someone’s eyebrows, getting really great at microblading takes practice.

I wish I had known how much practice it takes to be good. It no joke! I do tell my students this is something that takes time to be good at. You must be patient!”- Christopher Drummond, CDBrows

4. It’s not Just Microblading

Running a permanent makeup business requires more than just doing the actual procedures. A business requires marketing skills, ordering supplies, managing client’s, and so much more.

“Building the website, creating and following up on your social presence, ensuring you have all the supplies needed, state and county licensing, practicing daily, researching new techniques, pigments, supplies and all the other things we need to check off of our lists prior to even beginning, is all consuming.”- Jen Santoro, Altered Aesthetics

5. It’s Worth it!

Although running a microblading business can take a lot out of you, most business owners said they found pleasure in what they do.

“Before beginning my career as a permanent makeup artist and microblading artist I wish I had known how much I would love my new career of choice.”- Shaena McArthur, aeSkinArt

Owning and running a microblading business can be challenging and rewarding. The quotes and lessons above are just a sample of what business owners wished they had known before opening their own microblading businesses, but this small sample of advice can help you understand your technician better or inspire you to become a technician or business owner.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

Do You Have A Future In Microblading?

It seems when it comes to eyebrows that someone is always struggling with over plucking or their genetics. If memes have taught us anything, it’s the importance of eyebrows. Is there anyone who didn’t see this photoshopped picture of Ann Hathaway?

Microblading has grown to be one of the most popular methods to create perfect eyebrows because it is a type of permanent makeup that uses needles a real hair-like appearance.  Because of it’s growing popularity, microblading and permanent makeup have become a growing industry.

Some career fields that are now able to include permanent cosmetics to their list of services are electrologists, estheticians, nurses, tattoo artists, cosmetologists, and physicians.

Joining the ranks of permanent makeup artists can be achieved in various ways. Training can be as simple as two-day training. The two-day training is the easiest way to get certified, but you may not learn this skill to a full extent, and it’s important to ask yourself what kind of certification you would want someone to have before operating on your face. The traditional tattooists spend one to two years in an apprenticeship before doing independent work on body tattoos. This is why private training over a longer period is preferable.

Longer classes can be harder, but because the field is growing permanent cosmetic training facilities are beginning to develop.

To ensure you get the best training and provide the best service to clients you should:

1. Evaluate the type of courses offered

For instance, a beginner course should only teach you how to do eyeliner, eyebrows, and lip liner blend. Anything more advanced than this shows that the instructors are not keeping up with current developments in the field. The curriculum should also include information on

  • Skin structure
  • Makeup Artistry
  • Sterilization
  • Health considerations
  • Equipment operation and maintenance
  • Needles
  • Autoclaves
  • Pigment selection
  • Color blending
  • Client Forms
  • Pre and post-procedure care
  • Chart notes
  • Consent forms
  • Documenting with photography
  • List of suppliers of equipment and pigments

 

2. Ask How Many Students Will be In a Class

To guarantee you get the best education, make sure that you are provided one-on-one training with an instructor. This is important because your course should have you do a few procedures on live models, and you should have access to a professional when you need one.

3. Look Into Your Instructors

Your instructors should be experienced and keeping up with new developments. You can make sure that they are up to date by researching their credentials and asking other students about them.

Now is a great time to become a technician because so many people are interested in microblading and permanent makeup. I don’t know any woman who wouldn’t love to simplify her beauty routine. Microblading is one way to do just that. Because that demand and desire are there, microblading is a growing field, which promises to keep innovating and developing. This is the perfect time to add this service to your list of abilities, but make sure you do this in a way that will give you the best chance of success and the best service to your clients.

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.

How to Sanitize Your Workstation

Every standard for any cosmetic job is to sanitize their workstation properly. It’s to ensure no fluids, sickness, or germs are spread between different customers and their appointments. Unsterile tools are the biggest and quickest way of having trouble with the health department.

For microblading, several things need to be done to have proper sanitation standards. As it is similar to tattooing, extra precautions need to be taken to be sure all products, stations, and tools are sterilized properly.

There is a list of do’s that must be taken care of before a new session begins. A microblading technician must always:

–    Have the client sign the proper consent forms

–    Wash hands vigorously with soap and water

–    Use clean gloves

–    Open a new blade package for each session

–    Pour the pigment into a clean cap for dipping

–    Keep work area clean and sanitized

–    Do not touch hair, eyes, or other surfaces without applying new gloves afterward

All of this is necessary, and no step must be skipped. A blade should NEVER be reused on another client. It contains fluid, old pigment, and bacteria, which could cause an infection. Always open a new needle package in front of the customer to show the tool is fresh. And if any chairs or tables are wrapped in plastic, dispose of that as well as plastic cannot be sanitized.

When using gloves, it’s best to use a latex-free brand to accommodate those who may have an allergy to latex. If you end up touching any other service with your gloved hands, replace them again before starting the session.

The biggest safety rule to follow is to never double dip a blade into the pigment. Doing so could contaminate the whole pigment bottle, putting the client at risk.

When a microblading appointment is finished, you must always be sure that you:

–    Throw blades, gloves, used pigment, and any other items used in the procedure away in a biohazard bin

–    Wipe down surfaces with a hospital grade disinfectant

There is no reason whatsoever that any items and tools used in one session should be used again. Everything must be new and clean.

A medical grade cleanser, barrier film, and autoclave will keep all bloodborne pathogens at bay. All stations must be wiped down with it, and anything metal should be placed in barbicide and put in an autoclave to be sterilized.

Health and safety are the most important factors for any job that is done. Improper sanitation standards put both the client and technician at risk. With all the tools and products offered, there should be no excuse to compromise properly disinfecting your workspace. Follow the steps and never have a problem!

Remember: microblading is permanent, and you should only have the procedure done at a location you trust and feel comfortable with. Furthermore, care needs to be taken in order to ensure the pigment stays as vibrant and stunning as possible.
