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.

Being a Microblade Technician

Deciding on a job and career can be stressful. There are always multiple aspects to consider when it comes to schooling, finances, time, and whether it’s the right course for yourself. So, if you’re deciding on working in the cosmetic industry, be aware of what it takes!

There are hundreds of different avenues to choose from. One, in particular, that has seen an increase in popularity is the process of microblading. For those unaware of the word, microblading involves using a small tool with pigment to make small strokes in certain areas of a person’s eyebrows. The results are fuller eyebrows with a much more defined shape. Think of it like getting a tattoo, but way less painful, yet surprisingly just as expensive.

To become a microblader, you need the proper certification and training just like everyone else. The rewards of your labor, however, may be higher than you think! If you believe this is the path for you and you are interested in knowing more about it, here are a few details to keep in mind.

Cost

Not just for the supplies, but for the paycheck you could get out of it. Depending on how well trained you are, and who your clients will be, you can make almost $30,000 a month! No, I didn’t make that number up. Prices for an average session are between $500-$2000. They can be lower, but a person should always be wary of a ‘too good to be true’ kind of deal.

Now that you know the potential cash benefit, what does it cost you to get there? First, there’s the class or classes. A skilled artist should attend more than one class to continue to hone their skills, but technically an ordinary course will last about three to seven days. These classes can range from $2000-$4000. You will learn all the essential steps in microblading with the chance to work on a live model. Be careful if some places say they can teach advanced skin techniques. Things like skin pigmentation and camouflage require much more training and are entirely different.

Once you have your certification, consider working as an apprentice to someone, if it’s possible. Tattoo artists will work under an apprenticeship for almost two years before actually calling themselves a professional. Quality over quantity.

Time

Surprisingly, you may find you’ll have plenty. A proper microblading session should take at least two hours. It’s not possible to see five clients a day unless you have people working for you. It takes precision and careful handling for a good job. So if you’re pressed for time, take only two clients a day and work a little over four hours! Plus, since the schooling is short, you won’t have to worry about years of training.

Training

Parts of it were mentioned before, but you should know what you’d be learning. A typical class will teach you about using the blade, the different types of strokes for men and women, using color pigmentation, how to prevent infections, dealing with imperfections around the area, like over-plucking and scars, etc. It’s important to preface this because you should, again, ONLY be learning about microblading. Do your research on the teachers and the business’ that they work under. It’s highly possible to receive lousy teaching that you will later suffer for.

It can be intimidating getting into a new profession, especially with so many around who are already experts. But that’s the idea! Surround yourself with talent, and you could become one yourself. If it’s something you’re passionate about, then do your best to make it happen!

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.

Becoming a Microblader

Pursuing a career in cosmetics takes dedication and careful training. It’s not for everyone; this kind of job requires true passion. There are several different areas to study, but one that’s becoming increasingly popular is microblading. A microblader fills in a person’s eyebrows by using a thin blade with pigment to make small cuts in the skin. Though the procedure isn’t permanent, the longevity of the results can last between 3 to 5 years, should the client go back for the necessary touch-ups.

This profession isn’t for everyone. It takes time to become masterful with the tool and even more so when performing the actual technique. Many microbladers exist, but it’s vital to do your research when picking the right one.

If you are someone who wants to become a professional microblader, there are several aspects to keep in mind.

Training

Yes, there are two-day schools (surprisingly). Should you use this method? Possibly, but with discretion. The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals recommends either choosing a class with one other person or going to someone who will train you privately. Being taught privately may only take one week or even a year. The American Academy of Micropigmentation states that even though most states don’t require specific training, doing an apprenticeship sharpens your skills and provides an invaluable network of peers. If you put things into perspective, tattoo artists spend one to two years during an apprenticeship alone before they work on someone. Quality always counts.

Tattoo HQ also highlights the importance of certification. Not only does it give you authority as a professional, helping to build relationships with clients, but it allows you to set your pricing according to your qualifications.

What You Learn

Beginning courses should follow basics to start; how to do eyeliner, eyebrows, and lip liner. DO NOT work with a class or school that say you will learn to do full lip color, camouflage and/or skin pigmentation. SPCP warns that these techniques are far advanced and should not be included in a beginning class. Be sure to question how many students will be participating. There should always be hands-on training with live models. Having too many students will not allow for individual attention.

Be Aware of State-by-State Cosmetic and Tattoo Regulations

As cosmetic makeup becomes a stable in most states, new guidelines, requirements, and regulations are being refined to distinguish between professionals and the frauds. Take the time to look at them and learn so you can have the proper certification.

Ask Others About Their Training

According to SPCP, all good instructors should be continuing their education courses at least once every year. As the industry changes, new techniques and skills will be required. A trainer who is not current or keeping up with trends won’t be able to teach you new advanced methods and procedures. Check for certificates, if you can, to ensure you are learning from a reliable source.

The world of cosmetics is continuing to find new trends and styles. The need for teachers and specialists is a never-ending job venture for young, up and coming professionals. Just be sure you know where to go!

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.

Committing to Microblading

Most people think of microblading as a tattoo for your eyebrows or permanent makeup. Microblading is categorized as permanent makeup, and the same type of procedure that is done when getting a tattoo is used in microblading. However, microblading isn’t entirely permanent. Unlike tattoos, microblading involves a different tool and the ink is placed shallower in the skin. Since microblading is largely on the surface of the skin, it will fade over time.

This can be a good thing if you choose to view it as a safe guard. If your eyebrows didn’t turn out the way you wanted because you chose the wrong shape or your technician didn’t understand what you wanted, you don’t have to worry. While it can seem disappointing when the color fades, salons know that your beauty preferences can change with time. By not permanently tattooing your eyebrows, salons are giving you the freedom to change your mind.

All Things Fade with Time:

Fading will happen more rapidly after the first initial treatment. This fading can be anywhere from 40 to 60 percent due to the healing process. This usually involves scabbing and peeling. Remember, this first treatment is not the final product. The first touchup will be used to fix any fading you have along with color tone and any irregularities.

A few other things can affect how fast the ink fades. Oily skin typically causes faster fading than dry skin, along with Iron deficiencies, sun exposure, exfoliants, strong immune systems, exposure to salt water, and smoking.

But There’s Hope:

If you have these symptoms or work in circumstances that require you to be exposed to the sun or salt water, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the treatment. If you are concerned about whether you are a good candidate for microblading, you can get a consultation with a technician.  If you are approved but have these symptoms, more touch-ups may be required over time. Regardless, you will eventually have to get a touch-up.

Most people need a touch up every year or so to keep their brows looking fresh after the first initial procedure. The first treatment normally includes one touch-up after 5 to 10 weeks. This first touch up is part of the cost of the first treatment, and subsequent touch-ups will be significantly less.

Microblading is a commitment. It isn’t something you can do once and never worry about again. Like all beauty procedures, microblading must be maintained, and appointments should be made periodically. It’s easier than spending ten minutes every day with an eyebrow pencil trying to fill in the gaps and make your eyebrows look natural. Microblading is the perfect solution for the person who wants full natural brows without much effort.  If you go once a year (less than the number of times you go to the dentist), you could have full and well-shaped eyebrows for life.

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 Care for Your Eyebrows After Microblading Treatments

Microblading is a new, innovative, semi-permanent makeup procedure that can last up to three years. It’s a perfect solution for someone short on time. However, there is a certain level of commitment that goes into the microblading procedure. Below are just a few tips and ideas to keep your eyebrows looking sharp.

1. Go to the Follow Up Appointment: After your first initial treatment, you may lose some ink or experience some fading after your eyebrows have healed. Browstyling.com states the color can fade up to 40% during the healing process. To ensure you get the results you wanted, go to the follow-up appointment. This appointment is often part of the fee you paid for the first procedure, so going to this is really just getting your money’s worth.

2. Clean Your Eyebrows After the Procedure: To clean your eyebrows, you need to use a Q-tip and distilled water on your eyebrows, or you can use baby wipes. This will help wipe away any healing balm or build up from after the procedure. After your eyebrows are clean, reapply healing balm that your technician has provided.

3. Use Healing Balm for 5-7 Days After the Treatment: This does not mean applying an over the counter product. Any balm or ointment you apply should be something your technician recommended or gave to you. In fact, Zoe Milan Studios, a leading company in Micro-blading in Tampa, Florida recommends not using ointments and creams as they can slow down the healing process or ruin the technician’s work (wasting your money).

4. Don’t Apply Makeup Near Your Eyebrows: Applying makeup, like applying ointments, can affect how your eyebrows heal. It can also potentially cause infections.

5. Avoid Water: Water is another substance that should not meet your eyebrows after microblading. This includes steam or any other type of moisture. You want to keep your eyebrows completely dry for up to 14 days.

6. Avoid the Sun: UV light from the sun or tanning beds will make the ink from microblading fade faster. After the initial procedure, the cuts are still open, and the ink is more directly exposed to the light. If you want your results to last, be cautious about how much sun you expose your eyebrows too.

7. Most Importantly Don’t Touch or Pick at Your Eyebrows: This can be very tempting because the skin often peels or is very dry after the procedure, but picking at the area is just like picking at a scab or scratching when you have the chicken pox. It can leave scars, and nobody wants that.

8. See A Doctor If: While dry, flaky skin and a certain level of discomfort are normal, there are a few things you need to watch out for after having your eyebrows microbladed. If you experience severe pain, have puss, swelling, or excessive redness you should consult your doctor as soon as possible.

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.
