When it comes to the art of microblading, not everyone can master the delicate skills to help enhance an individual’s beauty based off of their requested and desired look. As microblading continues to gain popularity, more training programs are popping up all over the country. However, there’s a lot more to being a good microblading training teacher than just being able to showcase your skills to others.
If you’re looking to kick off a new career in microblading before you drop a lot of money on a training class or apprentice program, be sure that your new microblading instructor has the following traits so you start your career on the right foot with the right training.
1. Practice & Lots Of It
If you’ve enrolled in a microblading training class or apprentice program ask your instructor what his/her qualifications are as well as how many hours they have has a microblading artist. It’s best to ask about the individual’s previous experience as well as to see if the instructor has a gallery of before and after client photos they can show you. You’ll be able to get a better sense of the instructor’s technique as well as to gauge their experience.
An amazing microblading instructor is all about knowledge of when it comes to answering questions on skin tone, skin color, the anatomy of skin, types of skin and so forth. Microblading isn’t about cloning one “look” or application to multiple people. Microblading is about evaluating various face frames and skin tones using their experience and the plethora of knowledge they’ve accumulated over time.
3. On-The-Fly Troubleshooting
A microblading artist needs to be able to help their apprentice students and do so on the fly and do so in a way that the customer won’t be alarmed because, let’s face it, that would be pretty bad for a teacher to tell a student they’ve made a mistake on a live model, right?! A great microblading teacher can provide assistance and takeover to troubleshoot easily, with gentle coaxing and subtly.
4. Time & Patience
One of the most important aspects of a good teacher is being able to make time for their students as well as the ability to be patient with students. If you’re trying to learn the art of microblading you won’t be able to do so from someone that simply signs off on your hours without having the patience to help you. An ideal microblading training artist will be able to provide you with one-on-one time and provide you with a schedule as to when you’ll likely be ready to go off on your own.
5. The Ability To Listen
Listening to a client’s needs, wishes and concerns is the most important skill any microblading artist and teacher can possess. To be a successful teacher, it’s about being a skilled artist first and one that has the ability to work with multiple customers and not just hear a client or a student but really listen to others.
