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.

How to Make Microblading As Profitable as Possible

Starting a new career and immediately making a large profit, isn’t something that always goes hand in hand. Unfortunately, in today’s world, it can be hard just to earn an income based off just being good at a job. Unless you are willing to put effort into advertising, establishing a strong client base, and finding creative ways to connect with others in the business, the likelihood of you keeping that career is minimal.

So when it comes to a career like microblading, it’s imperative that you take the necessary steps to put you in the cosmetic spotlight. You might be surprised, but there are plenty of ways to build your name without spending tons of money on a billboard or marketing agency. By attempting to follow these useful methods, your profit as a microblading technician will start rolling in before you know it.

Exchange Talents with Others

Who says cosmetics workers can’t receive inside benefits from other professionals? Offering your services as payment for a haircut, massage, or other treatment is a great way to gain free exposure. If you’re good, then they can refer you to their established client base and spread the word.

Work with Beauty Bloggers

The power bloggers and vloggers have on social media is almost unreal. A well-known blogger could recommend a product, and maybe half or more of their fan base will look into it. Consumers like to follow the advice of a ‘professional.’ Talk to a few bloggers and offer to do their lashes or makeup if they have a photo shoot coming up, in exchange for a shout out on their social media sites. Check if they have a large following first though, so you don’t waste energy on an unknown person.

Start a Video Series

A great way to learn about a person and their business is by watching videos of their business and services. Consumers in the beauty industry find it informative to see before and after videos or pictures of an employee’s client. It gives them a feel for what you are capable of doing. Plus, you have free range of what you’d want to record. You can post about a session, tips, or news from the microblading world. Don’t forget to post it on all of your social media accounts!

Team Up with Photographers

A picture is worth a thousand words. Working with a photographer who handles models can give you a wide range of publicity, especially depending on how high up in they are in their career. They will always need salon professionals and stylists for a shoot. Getting featured in a high-profile magazine will open a lot of doors. Also, it’s good to have a regular photographer for your business anyway. They can take pictures of your clients, store, and do shoots that highlight your skills.

The greatest advice to give, of course, is to offer exceptional, consistent services and prioritize your clients. Their satisfaction is the core of your success. A few bad reviews can make a potential customer turn away real quick. Everything will always depend on your willingness and determination to succeed.

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.

Best Needles for Microblading

Microblading has become the latest craze in the beauty industry. It is the new solution to getting the eyebrows you’ve always envisioned. The procedure is simple and quick but takes a delicate hand. Using a thin blade, the cosmetologist will make tiny cuts along the eyebrows inserting pigment into the skin. The result should be fuller, more defined brows.

As is expected, there are various levels of expertise, but were you aware that there are also different types of needles? Yes, one needle doesn’t fit all. There is an entire hierarchy of blades, and it’s important to know how to distinguish them.

First, let’s discuss the difference between ‘flexi’ and ‘hard’ blades.

‘Flexi needles’ are best used by beginners. Their flexibility allows for some of the pressure to be absorbed, giving a softer, superficial hair stroke and are ideal for sensitive or thin/aged skin. The needles are bound by a soft leather or synthetic fabric, which gives them their flexibility.

More skilled and confident artists should use ‘hard needles’. They are easier to control and are better for thicker skin with bigger pores. There is no shock absorption, unlike the flexi needles, so the cut goes deeper into the skin with less pressure. They allow for more definition in the strokes since they are wrapped with metal.

Now that we’ve discussed the style of needle, it’s time to talk about their configuration. Blades will be called by different numbers, depending on how many needles there are. The needles are put together in a straight line of a fixed size and range in about four different categories of a build.

7 Flexi Angled or ‘PeeWee’

This blade style is recommended to those who are comfortable with their pressure skills. It gives the hair strokes high definition, ideal for targeting two existing hair strokes with accuracy. These are suitable for all skin types.

9 or 12 Angled Flexi ‘Helpful Auntie’

A good starter needle for students. The flexi style doesn’t let the needle go too deep, allowing for fine lines. Beginners can use it to repeat the hair stroke to get a more defined result and this blade helps to avoid color migration.

18-21 U Shape ‘Picasso’

The number of needles in this blade provides no gap between them. The ‘U Shape’ works best at the inner corner of the eyebrows, as it can create smooth, angled curves in a short space. It has the unique distinction of combining attributes of a multi-flat needle and a single needle. Depending on if you angle the blade more or less, you can make a variety of hair strokes, from curved to straight, with just one needle.

14-21 Angled Needles

This needle count is ideal for creating longer and thicker hair strokes, showing the best results in hard, thick skin types. Because of their fat base, thin tip ends, and gaps between them, the needles are great for shadow effects through different shading techniques.

It’s clear that a lot more goes into microblading than one might expect. Choosing your tool is just as important as knowing how to use it. It’s always best to do your research and understand what option is best for you!

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.

The Cost of Perfection: Microblading Training

Microblading has reached new heights in the cosmetic industry. The technique is a permanent makeup routine that uses a small blade to insert pigment into the skin, creating fuller and more defined eyebrows. Though the initial procedure isn’t permanent, with several follow-up appointments and proper care, the final results have a shelf life of three to five years.

Women have jumped on the bandwagon, causing a new type of cosmetic artist to arise. Now microblading classes are popping up wherever they are needed. A class will typically either take three days or up to a week to finish. Training can always continue, of course, and some highly recommend it as more trends and techniques appear. If it is legitimate, the class should focus on the process of microblading alone. Plus, the cost should not be over extravagant. To know you are getting the best experience, take into account these suggestions for this thriving area of business.

What You Will Learn

A beginning microblading course, wherever it is taught, should still focus on the main aspects of the technique. No class should offer the opportunity to learn about skin camouflage or pigmentation. These are advanced techniques that require more than a week’s training. In an article from the World of Microblading, they mapped out what a single course should teach. This list includes, but not limited to basic color theory, how to prevent infections, correcting imperfections near the eyebrow area (scars, over-plucking), different stroke patterns for men and women, and much more. At some point in the class, you should work AT LEAST ONCE with a live model. This is an absolute deal breaker. Be sure to research the business that intends to teach the class properly! If they don’t offer the basics or teach advanced cosmetic applications, be mindful.

Pricing

A class shouldn’t break your bank, but it also shouldn’t be too cheap either. The total cost per microblading class should range from $2000-$4500 as estimated by Perfect Eyebrows Academy and Eye Design New York. All pricing varies based on clientele, location, and marketing. Normal classes should last between three to seven days, but most facilities offer a three-day option.

What to Expect After

Congratulations, you are a professional microblader (sort of)! Now it’s time to put your finely skilled knowledge to the test and work on real clients. So, what is there to look forward to? An extra $30,000 per month! At least, potentially. A microblading session can range from $500 to $2,000 depending on how trained you are and who the clients will be. Microblading sites estimate up to $40,000 of extra income per month, without tips, with supplies costing about $25 per treatment. Also, since a session lasts about two hours, you only need to work about four hours per day for just two clients!

A properly trained microblading professional is important and will continue to be so as the trend grows. The ability to provide quality services must always be a guarantee for customers, especially when the process runs along the lines of tattooing. There are countless opportunities available, so research and get involved!

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 Tools

Every artist needs the proper tools. No one can create a masterpiece without the right equipment; this goes towards cosmetic artists as well. For a microblader, their tools must be of the best quality to perform such a detailed task. Microblading involves making tiny strokes into the eyebrow skin and pressing pigment into the area. This technique, when done correctly, should give the client beautifully filled eyebrows.

Though microblading is a significant step-down from tattooing, the tools are still just as essential. The artist must follow proper cleaning procedures as well as disinfect their supplies and replace them if needed. Here are only a few of the materials you will be required and expected to have.

Microblading Pen

Obviously. No pen, no microblading. The pen should feel comfortable when you hold it with a firm grip to allow for smooth strokes and easy handling. There will also be different types of blades that can be used, depending on the type of stroke. DO NOT USE THE SAME BLADE TWICE ON A DIFFERENT PERSON.

–    Hard Blade: This should be handled by an experienced microblader, according to Intrinsics Naturally. The blade is used for bolder strokes that require less pressure on the skin, which can allow for more pigment to sink into the skin.

–    Classic Flexible Blade: The standard for all microbladers. The blade works for all skin types but is best on thin or aged skin. It gives softer strokes as opposed to the hard blade.

Pigment

Buying quality pigments is a must. Multiple microblading websites offer packages with an assortment of colors that have a creamy consistency for easy use. As you begin to take on more clients, it is best to have a variety of colors because this will be necessary to match all of your client’s skin and hair color.

Latex Gloves

Wearing gloves is always required when doing any sort of tattooing. It’s best to get powder and latex free gloves should any clients have sensitive skin. This process involves bodily fluids and bacteria that can lead to infection. Wear gloves. No exceptions.

Cotton Wipes

Having wipes makes it much easier to clean up the brows and is gentle on the client’s skin.

Clean Up

We’ve addressed the tools, now time to talk about safety. What should be done before and after the procedure?

Before a procedure is done, the stylists 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

After the microblading is done, be sure to:

–     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

Microblading is a rewarding experience for both the artist and client. Ensure the best results for everyone by following these tips!

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.
