The beauty industry has trends that come and go. While eyebrow microblading seems like it could be one of those flash in the pan trends, the storied history and undeniable ‘I just woke up like this’ results behind the cosmetic technique would say otherwise.

As a trusted, touring microblading academy we are often asked questions about this semi-permanent tattoo technique. We decided to answer all of the most commonly asked questions that your curious mind could come up with.

What is Eyebrow Microblading?

Beautifully full, perfectly arched, on-trend eyebrows that are natural? They’re pretty much a unicorn, you just don’t come by them honestly. That being said, the microblading technique is a semi-permanent form of cosmetic tattooing that gives the appearance of effortless, healthy, and natural looking brows. Using a hand-tool and the hairstroke method, eyebrow microblading uses pigments in the skin to replicate the look of natural hairs, giving your brows a full and on-trend appearance.

Where Did Microblading Come From?

While it is hotly contested whether eyebrow microblading originated in Northern China or Japan, there is strong evidence that points to the technique being formulated in Asia. At very least, Asia is where microblading first rose to prominence as a viable and in-demand practice around twenty-five years ago. Shortly after the technique took over Asia, it swept Middle Eastern countries, followed by Europe and more recently becoming big in North America, where it is becoming one of the most in demand beauty practices.

How Long Does it Take/How Long Will it Last?

We often get a variation of this question. Your first appointment will be approximately two hours or a little longer. The timeline can go a little longer depending on how long it takes to approve the eyebrow shape. Eyebrow microblading is semi-permanent, it will last anywhere from one to three years, depending on your skin type and if you go for your touch-up appointments.

Do I have to be an Esthetician to Learn How to Microblade?

Absolutely not! A lot of our students are already involved in the cosmetic/beauty/tattooing industries because learning how to microblade is a natural fit. However, our foundations of eyebrow microblading course was created for people with little to no knowledge or skill when it comes to this technique.
