A question that gets asked often by aspiring microblading artists is if the microblading technique is difficult to learn. The answer is no. Now, this response comes with a caveat that you are only as good as your teacher. If your microblading artist isn’t very good at microblading or teaching, well, then you may struggle.
And, if your microblading instructor only knows one technique and uses that one application on all clients, well, that makes it a bit more difficult to expand your horizons to offer your clients various styles and options. But, if you have a talented microblading teacher, it becomes vastly easier to learn multiple techniques to offer to your clients.
Do you have to be an esthetician or have a cosmetology degree to do microblading?
No, you don’t. While most states have varying levels of certifications required, being a cosmetologist or an esthetician is not commonly a requirement.
While microblading is one of the fastest-growing professions in the country, it still remains regulated without requiring long-term schooling. This, plus masks as an ever-present accessory in our lives now, makes showing off a beauteous facial asset propel this profession forward and quickly. The demand for microblading artists is intense and growing every day.
How much money do microbladers make?
A recent report found that the average microblader made roughly $70,000, with that, though, that takes into account individuals that might only be working one day a week. The highest microblader artist in the country makes just around $400,000 and many microblader artists report upwards of $100,000 in annual income. Not a bad haul, eh?
Where can I learn to become a microblader?
There are a number of places that you can learn to become a microblader and if you’re looking for something in your local area, be sure to ask the right questions. For example, make sure where you plan to go to microblading school that they are certified and meet all the health department requirements in your state.
