10 Signs You May Be Attending A Bad Microblading Class

With so many microblading courses offered these days as the demand for new microblading artists soaring to new heights, it isn’t unlikely that you will come across a bad microblading class as you make your search for the course that is right for you. It’s a scary thought, spending thousands of dollars on a course that doesn’t meet the standard of the industry and leaves you with less confidence than ever. Thankfully, there are telltale signs that you may be making a mistake. Here are 10 signs that you may be attending a bad microblading class

1. You signed up for a course less than 3 days long

Learning the art of microblading is skill driven by passion. As with all forms of art, it takes time to go over all the intricate subject matters in order to have a comprehensive understanding. If you’re taking a 1 or 2-day course, buyer beware. We have seen cheap 1-day courses out there and they don’t even come close to scratching the surface of the education you need before carving into someone’s eyebrows. Always make sure to check the agenda of a course so that it is comprehensive over a number of days. This isn’t a crash course career.

2. Your instructor does not give you follow up support/continuing education after the course

Be very careful of instructors who take your money and run after your course is complete. A lot of international instructors are notorious for coming stateside for a microblading course tour. While learning from the other parts of the world is important to stay up to date with new techniques and pigments, consider taking an advanced course. Most beginners need the continued support and education of their instructor and finding someone in the states will greatly increase your ability to find that.

3. Course location is yet to be determined

This is usually a typical sign in smaller, less known, and newer course instructors. They do not have the facilities necessary to run a course because they are just looking for sign-ups. If they have a minimum number of students per course you may be waiting for the next one around if you’re the only sign-up.

4. The course doesn’t include info on medical contraindications

This is a huge issue. Any course that does not teach you all the necessary medical contraindications will leave you liable for the injuries you cause your clients. Be very careful to find an instructor that dedicates a substantial amount of time on medical contraindications

5. The course doesn’t include business building skills

A course could do an amazing job of teaching you a comprehensive fundamental agenda that prepares you well for your skill, but a microblading artist without clients is an unemployed person. Make sure your course takes a moderate amount of time teaching you business building skills as you break through into your new career. These skills are critical in getting you up and running as a microblading artist

6. The course doesn’t include a kit

Microblading training is a financial investment on your part usually costing thousands of dollars. If you’re spending all that money and your chosen course does not provide a kit with everything you’re going to need, you have to ask yourself why? Be careful with courses that do not provide a kit, you should be getting everything you need from your instructor.

7. The course doesn’t name instructor

I’ve seen many courses that have a date but does not name an instructor. These are usually cookie cutter ads set in different places that do not yet have an instructor set for those dates. This leaves the likelihood of you being taught by an instructor who isn’t credible.

8. Course Instructor early in her microblading career

Have you done your research on the instructor of the course? Has he/she been in the field for a long time? Do you like the work that they have done? How long have they been doing it? We’ve seen an artist with less than a year’s experience advertising microblading courses. Make sure your instructor is credible. A great way is to look up reviews and testimonials of past students.

9. The course doesn’t provide hands-on training

It goes without saying that microblading is about hands-on as you can get. You put a blade to someone’s eyebrows and are trusted to slice into their skin. Your course should give you hands-on training on both practice silicone pads and a real-life model when your instructor feels you’re ready for it.

10. The course does not give the ability to fulfill your local health department requirements

In some states, like Nevada, there are specific apprenticeship requirements that have to be filed before you’re licensed to practice independently. If you’re taking a course make sure that instructor helps you prepare for any testing that has to happen and is accredited with their local health department to take you on as an apprentice.

NeenJayBrows provides in-depth 3-day courses, one-on-one training, and the 6-month apprenticeship required by Nevada Law for those planning on practicing in Nevada.
