A Guide to Choosing a Microblading Artist

24 April

Microblading has gained incredible popularity in recent years as it enhances your facial features in a beautiful, natural looking way. Some people have never had a great eyebrow shape, some people overplucked when they were younger and some just want to improve their existing shape.

Fabulous brows are the must-haves and for good reason! Your eyebrows are essential to your face and can greatly impact your expression.

Choosing the right microblading artist can be very challenging. Most people don’t know where to start and will usually go by a recommendation from a friend. Even then, it can be tricky. Here are some tips to choosing the right microblading artist for you:

  • Do I like their work?
  • What do their reviews say?
  • Do they offer a free consultation?
  • Do I feel reassured and excited after speaking to the technician?
  • Where did they qualify and can they give proof of qualification?

Nowadays, there are a huge amount of microblading artists and clinics, all trying to out-compete each other. The market also ranges quite a bit when it comes to the prices that each salon or clinic charges. So why is there such a difference in prices? And how are you supposed to know what ‘’the right’’ price is?

Whatever price is being asked, a good business will take into account how much it costs for them to perform the treatment, how much time is needed and also how high the standard of treatment is with them.

Sometimes I get asked ‘’why are you so expensive? I can get a Voucher online for £80 down the street’’. You have to ask yourself, why is it so much cheaper? Usually it will be because they are just starting out, need to build their portfolio or are still in training.

Consider this: what do I think is a reasonable price for having someone tattoo my face?

A shockingly large part of my work is spent correcting previously done work by other technicians where a client thought they could get a cheap deal. So they end up spending much more than they were prepared for and in some cases, we cannot help fix their eyebrows.

If you take away anything from this article, let it be this:

  1. Do your research and choose your artist wisely. Speak to a few different ones until you are happy with your choice.
  2. Good brows aren’t cheap and cheap brows aren’t good.
