Need a Career Change? Here’s How to Start from Zero in Microblading
In our fast paced world, stressful jobs and being stuck behind a desk is common. So if you decide to take your life back into your hands and change careers, you might find yourself lost and confused. Luckily, the job market is expanding every day and new professions are emerging.
One of the more recent profitable professions is microblading artist. If you’re a beauty enthusiast who has finally decided to cash in your passion, or you’re already working in beauty but want to reorient to a more lucrative and exciting field, here is a full guide on how to find your way in the microblading world.
Starting From Scratch
Once you’ve done the reaserch on what microblading actually is and made the definite decision to get into it, the first step is making a preliminary plan.
1. Enroll a Licensed Microblading Course
You cannot work as a permanent makeup technician without finishing a course at an accredited training centre or beauty school.
You don’t need any prior experience working in beauty in order to enroll a course, which is why microblading is relatively practical to transition to; your age or what you did before doesn’t matter, as long as you’re willing to invest time, effort and energy into the transition and constant learning down the line.
2. Get Enough Experience
The second very important decision you must make is whether you’ll work at a salon, or start your own business. The best option might be to work for someone else for a while to obtain experience, then invest into your business.
Before deciding, consider your personality. In order to be the boss, you’ll need a lot of discipline and the ability to multitask. If you’re working at a salon, make sure you can handle the workload. In any case, good communication skills are a must.
3. Consider the Initial Investments
When it comes to finance, the only inevitable investment is a quality course. If you decide to start a business, you will also need to invest in equipment (a bed for clients, tools and supplies) and workspace.
So make sure you have the initial capital before you start your journey. Once you start earning, you can invest your profit into expansion
Reorientation From a Similar Profession
Making a transition from a job in the same niche is slightly more practical, but you will still need to do the work. Of course, you will need to take a microblading course, even if you already work as a aesthetician. If you by now have your own beauty business, you can use your existing workspace. Just invest into some new equipment and a bit of rebranding.
You will already have a built clientele, so use this to your advantage. You can reach out to them and offer them your new service. You will also already have an Instagram page or website set up, you’ll only need a bit of updating.
Choosing a quality course is top priority. Both live microblading trainings and online courses are available, so consider which option best suits your lifestyle. If you still haven’t quit your previous job, taking an online course simultainously might be the better option.
