In order to start working in this area of the beauty industry and improve your career prospects, a microblading license is required. This is different from the certificate you already have. Thus, there may be an extra exam to take, especially one regarding health and safety issues.
Not only does the license protect clients from unskilled microblading, it also protects you and your business. A microblading license shields you from unqualified competition because you are the one who offers professional and legal service.
Since microblading regulations vary from state to state, it is always best to contact your state or county health department or the organization that regulates cosmetology, permanent makeup or tattooing. Check their requirements for facilities, equipment and hygiene and make sure you meet them before actually applying. Once you get your microblading license, do not forget to keep it up to date. This license has to be renewed to be legally valid.
