Microblading has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the world. Big bold eyebrows have been the latest trend, and due to the thin over-tweezed late ‘90s, early ‘00s look a lot of people are struggling to achieve the look they want naturally. The popularity of microblading has continued to grow over recent years thanks to its long list of loyal fans including a variety of celebrities, beauty bloggers and social media influencers.
It is similar to a tattooing procedure that fills in pale or thin eyebrows to make them appear fuller and more shaped. Unlike traditional tattoos, microblading is only semi-permanent. This is because microblading uses specialised tools and a smaller amount of pigment. The treatment is fairly risk-free but infections are possible as you are breaking into the skin, and as it is semi-permanent you can’t afford to make any mistakes.
Taking a microblading course can help you to grow your client flow considerably. It is a popular cosmetic treatment that will help you to boost the popularity of your clinic and gain more repeat business. Read on to understand why this is the best year to take a microblading course.
Microblading is the perfect solution for people who want to improve the look of their eyebrows. They can create new arches and shapes without having to make surgical or permanent changes to their face. Non-surgical procedures like microblading now account for 85% of the cosmetic market, and they are expected to continue growing in popularity, increasing by 27%. As they are less invasive than surgery, non-surgical treatments attract more people as they have fewer risks and quicker results. They also tend to be considerably less expensive than surgery. They can help people on a smaller budget, or who have fears of side effects and long-term results they aren’t happy with, refresh their eyebrows and update their look.
Perfect eyebrows are one of the biggest trends of 2018, and the desire to make them flawless has never been as popular as it is right now. Celebrities like Emilia Clarke and Cara Delevingne are bringing big full eyebrows onto the red carpet and setting new beauty standards. Many stars turn to microblading to help enhance their looks and get long-lasting results. As they are always in the public eye, looking their best is important and more celebrities are posting about their eyebrow transformations on social media. Actress Lena Dunham even said, “on my face were two perfect brows, the same hard-to-capture brown as the hair on my head, multidimensional, thick in all the right places, giving my face a grounded seriousness I had been wishing for.”
Social posts and comments like Lena’s can really influence the masses and drive their attention towards the potential of microblading. It educates and encourages them to try this treatment for their own eyebrow issues. If celebrities are loving this treatment, it reassures their followers that the procedure is popular, safe and effective. With more than three million Instagram posts with the hashtag #brows and over than 600,000 with #browsonfleek, it’s obvious that people want to follow in the footsteps of their idols and make their eyebrows look as symmetrical and as defined as possible. As more people are looking for ways to get the best brows they can, the demand for microblading has grown considerably.
Taking a microblading course can help make your job even more rewarding. People who come for microblading often lack self-confidence and are unhappy with their look. They may have light eyebrows or gaps that they want to fill in, or they may suffer from an illness like Alopecia that leaves them with thin, sparse eyebrows. It can also be a brilliant solution for people who are suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy treatments. Microblading allows them to feel happier and more confident without them having to turn to pencils and powders that fade away. The treatment also uses fine strokes to create the appearance of real hair and gives a more natural look.
Boosting your client’s confidence can help give a sense of meaning to your work and make you feel that you are really making a difference. You are helping people to feel more confident in the skin they were born in. Microblading enhances a feature that some people can feel very insecure about and new and improved eyebrows can make them much happier.
