Semi-permanent makeup might not, at first glance, seem like the booming industry, but it actually is. To you, it could just be the local clinic in town, or the woman your friend told you about that is starting her own business. But, in fact, semi-permanent makeup, like microblading, can help people to earn very serious money, and it’s much more than you’d expect. But, it’s not just the money that people are enticed by when choosing this career, they also want to enjoy the flexibility and job satisfaction many people in this industry experience on a daily basis.

Microblading is the perfect procedure to start with as its intense popularity can guarantee you clients. Taking the time to train in microblading can be the first step to changing your life, career and happiness. Read on to learn more about why you should take this course and how it can alter your view on work forever.

Make More Money

A microblading course gives you the potential to earn well over £100 per client. A typical session takes between 1.5 to 2 hours to complete with a short touch-up session four to six weeks later. This can give you potential earnings of around £3000 a week, a number probably unimaginable in your current job.

Many people want to enhance their looks, and microblading eyebrows, eyeliner and lipliner can give them the confidence boost they need. And often, this desire for an improved look means they are willing to pay for it. After initial sessions and setting up some credibility for yourself in the semi-permanent makeup industry, it won’t be hard for your week to fill up with appointments. And, the more procedures you learn, the quicker your business can grow and develop. But, as microblading is such a desired treatment, it is undoubtedly the best place to start, allowing you to see a significant change in your income almost immediately.

Create a Long-Lasting Career

The semi-permanent makeup industry is booming. Worth only £6.5m five years ago, the brow industry alone has grown to be worth over £20m in the UK. With such public support behind this industry, from both men and women, it’s not hard to imagine a lifelong career coming out of this profession. Starting with just one microblading course, you can set yourself up for a lifetime in the semi-permanent makeup world, where you can learn new skills to develop your business and reach more clients. Microblading alone allows you to work with those seeking enhancements for their eyebrows, lips and eyes, potentially allowing you to make hundreds of pounds from just one person. The more investment you place into your education early on, and throughout the beginning of your career, the quicker you can establish yourself within this industry. With such credibility comes more clients, often returning when you have new procedures to offer them, or they need their regular treatment.

Flexible Hours

A further great benefit of taking a microblading course in the UK is the flexibility that comes with being self-employed. Whether you are a new mum or the dad of a large family that requires flexible working hours, this is the perfect kind of job for you. Being self-employed means you can pick your own hours, so you can start as early or as late as you want. If you need specific days off during the week, you can supplement it with late evening work or weekends, when other practitioners may not work. This can make you even more appealing to potential customers as you are willing to work around their schedules which is often the traditional 9-5 workday.

With flexible hours also comes more time for family and relationships. Perhaps, at your current job, you feel rundown and tired, with seemingly endless hours of work both at the office and at home. This could leave you with little time for your family after work, leading to a breakdown in your communication and relationships. But, by controlling when and where you work, you get to choose how much of your time can be dedicated to working and how much is left for your family.

Create Patient and Client Relationships

You might be in a job now where you gain little reward for your work, connecting with people briefly before moving on to a new client. This can feel isolating and repetitive, making each working day boring and tedious. However, by being self-employed, you get to choose who you work with. If there is a particular client whose demeanour and attitude seems offensive and rude, you don’t have to treat them. On the other side, if certain clients are kind and grateful, you can build relationships with them so that they are more likely to return for top-up treatments or new procedures. Having a connection with a client makes each working day more enjoyable, as you can feel as if you are working with your friends. Plus, you get to see the positive impact you have had on their confidence post-procedure, making them a walking example of your hard work.


You don’t have to stay in a job you hate forever. There are alternatives such as semi-permanent make up that can offer much more money, enjoyment and job-satisfaction. Whether you are looking for a pay increase or more time for your family, taking a microblading course can set you on the necessary path.
