For years, Microblading has been a source of income and motivation for beauty enthusiasts, like me and YOU! Microblading is now such a big trend and is the most sought-after service even with celebrities and fashion icons like Kim Kardashian, Bella Thorne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gigi Hadid, Iggy Azalea and more!

The average procedure costs between $400 and $800 (USD) and takes two hours to complete. YES! $400 (USD) per hour really is achievable as a Microblading Technician. You can treat 1 client per day (or 20 a month). That’s $16,000 (USD) in monthly revenue, minus the disposable tools (20 x $25), leaving profits of $15,500 per month before overheads and taxes. This makes microblading the highest paid job in Permanent Makeup industry.

In case you are lost and you don’t know where to find a job as a Microblading Technician, here are some suggestions:

  1. Search for a local salon or spa that offers microblading procedures. You can scout at your local neighbourhood or ask some friends for referrals. You can also consider checking out salons or spas that don’t have microblading in their list of services. This way, you can introduce them to this superb semi-permanent makeup procedure and help them boost their business.
  2. Try building your portfolio through a website or any social media platforms. Then, make sure to indicate your contact details and inform them to schedule an appointment with you. You can be a freelancer of some sort. Or, you can label it an “on-call” technician. Customers can book an appointment with you and you can perform microblading in the comfort of your their homes. This is ideal for stay at home moms or if you are looking for a side hustle!
  3. Last but not the least (the best actually) is to build your own empire. Put up your own microblading salon. You can be your own boss. You can start with a small space in a commercial location. Showcase your microblading skills and let your customers spread the word. Take the risks and aim high!

Now that you’ve taken the necessary steps to become a Microblading Technician, finding where to exhibit your talent and skills is a must. It usually is the hardest in the beginning but don’t worry. Just start anywhere. 🙂
