What is Microblading And What Are The Classes & Training Like?


learning an alternative to applying eyebrow makeup every dayA fairly new way to improve the look of a client’s eyebrows can be found through a procedure called microblading. This procedure is known for helping recreate, correct, and improve eyebrow structure and is perfect for those who have natural brows and for those who have little to no eyebrow hair. The results from the microblading procedure, which is a semi-permanent makeup, provides a long lasting and natural look that can last between nine to eighteen months if done correctly. Microblading technicians use a pen that is 3x thinner than a normal blade to draw thin and natural looking hairs using the ink that has been deposited inside the pen. This is a different concept from how eyebrows are normally done.

Why Take the Training?

Those who would do well with microblading being in their repertoire are cosmetologists, makeup artists and estheticians. A single session can range between $500 to $2000, which can significantly increase a beautician’s earnings for a normal day’s work. There is also no expensive equipment that needs to be purchased to do this work. However, due to how long the effects of this procedure last, it is important that those who use it make sure that they place careful attention on every step of the process. From drawing the eyebrows to filling them in with hair strokes, every small detail matters.

It is also very important to be completely knowledgeable in every aspect of microblading procedures. One must become a master at every hairstroke application process. A school that will explore manual microblading, tool sterilization, skin structures, proper application, aftercare, and touch up in depth would be perfect to look into.

The perfect course will have the following:

  • Microblade Hair Stroking Methods
  • Old Tattoo Covering
  • Multiple Techniques for Designing Eyebrows
  • Safety and Sterilization
  • Color Mixing
  • Drawing Schemes
  • Skin Structures and Natural Regeneration
  • Tools and Products
  • Hairstroke Customization
  • State Permanent Makeup Regulations


A typical course focusing on just microblading won’t take too long and shouldn’t cost too much compared to a full cosmetology program. An average training session would last three to five days and might cost anywhere from $500 to $4,000. As noted previously, successfully completing your studies in this field can prove to be quite lucrative!
