All Businesses Start Small
Permanent makeup and microblading are considered as an art that can take years to master. Aside from that, it takes time for you to build your clientele as well as become known for how well you perform, as it would with other businesses. Thus, while we believe that it’s certainly possible to earn a good income in microblading, it’s still up to you on how you can make the most out of it. Experience and location play a really huge role in how high you can be able to price the services you offer.
On the other hand, if you want to go into business on your own, there will be start-up costs such as certification, training, machinery, licensing, furniture, advertising, as well as facility rent are actually just some of the startup costs that you’ll come across the moment you’re setting up your practice.
Certifications You’ll Need
The process in order to become a qualified and licensed microblading artist or for any permanent makeup artist, usually varies per state. As a matter of fact, some states require just very few hours of permanent makeup training, while other states will require from three hundred or more with the right apprenticeship program that’s approved by the board of cosmetology of the state, or whatever board of the state that regulates permanent cosmetics. Having said that, the spectrum is definitely huge as some states do not even regulate the permanent cosmetics industry. For example, in Florida, it’s only important to pass a communicable disease course that only lasts for 3 hours.
Trainings You’ll Need
Regardless whether you need training for your license or not depending on the regulations of your state, it is still very important that you invest in it. This is because your main responsibility with all your clients in the future will be to give them a high-quality service as much as possible. So, in order for you to do that, you will have to train and learn from an experienced professional. In that way, you can be able to perfect your own art through constant practice.
You might want to start training yourself by taking general permanent makeup courses that will generally teach common procedures such as eyeliners, lips, and eyebrows. Aside from that, you can also begin focusing on specific technique such as microblading if you have already finished the general course.
