I’m seeing more and more microblading artists building their own permanent makeup companies which is wonderful to see, but I’m noticing that everyone of these companies are getting greedy fast. Because of the lack of customers these artists are seeing, probably due to all the sudden competition in almost every area, they are teaching the craft instead. Don’t get me wrong I think teaching others is a wonderful experience. I used to teach myself and loved seeing that lightbulb in someone else’s head turn on.
However, just because a company claims they are a “permanent makeup school” or “cosmetic academy” doesn’t necessarily mean they are good teachers of microblading or are good at the craft. However, my real point is this – I think any one of these new found “permanent makeup academy’s” are scams, a “get rich quick” scam. Beware of these schools and anyone that obtains a certificate in these “schools” because the scam is this – the school makes you believe that getting a microblading certificate will allow you to make over $100K a year if you get enough customers through the door. So let the games begin, right? All you need is this certificate and the school takes $5K from you to learn the skill, when in reality you won’t make that money back probably for at least 5 years considering the cost of all the supplies you now need to buy and the rent you need to pay to provide this service. Unless you are somehow the best microblading artist for the right price within the entire 30 mile radius of where you place your microblading business, then just maybe this might be the right profession for you.
So there you have it, my reason to not teach microblading is because microblading is an art, it’s intuition, math, and courage.
There has been an explosion of women out there thinking they too can “just draw hair lines” on people’s faces too, but they have no idea what it takes, and they waste 5 grand thinking they will be the “big boss girl” for the rest of their life. I will not support this trend.
