microblading and Ombre
In this microblading and machine ombre class, you will learn all the brow services that I personally provide to be able to accommodate every client.
You will soon find out that microblading can only be performed on 30-40% of clients, therefore you will need to know how to do a powedered or combo brow as well (also called shading or ombre). You will learn

The full program is 10 days to 2 weeks long.
The in-class portion of this program is three days long (usually a Saturday/Sunday/Monday). During that time, we will work only on worksheets, fake skins and dummy heads to properly learn these new skills.
You will then have a week or two to finish your fake skins and practice as much as possible at home. I encourage my students to send me photos of their work so I can correct and send feedback during this week.
After your practice week, we will set up a time to do a model together. I always do models individually to ensure you are having undivided attention through your appointment. It can be nerve racking the first time you do this procedure, therefore only one student at a time will be working on their model.
what is included?
Your kit will provide everything to do the full microblading procedure.
reusable microblading handles
60 microblades (various sizes)
10 fake skins
2 different numbing creams
2 sharpie wax crayons
6 brow stencils
dummy head with mapping tape
manual with worksheets
I do not include a machine for your take home kit, but a machine is provided to you for class and the practice week.
I try to include everything that you need for the procedure. You will need to get health department approved cleaning supplies and other basics like gloves, q-tips, gauze, etc.
do i need to be an esthetician?
That's the best part about microblading, there is no skin care license required! So no, you do not need to be an esthetician or a cosmetologist. However, you do need to get your tattoo artist license which takes about a week to process. All microblading and permanent makeup fall under the tattoo laws in florida, so you must follow these guidelines.
how do i get my tattoo artist license?
You need to fill out the tattoo artist application on the Florida Department of Health website and take the three hour cross contamination course online (boring but easy, my students typically use this one www.floridaonlinetattoolicense.com). After those are done, send the application and the certificate of completion to the health department and your license will take about a week to process. You do not need your license for the seminar portion of class but YOU DO NEED the license for your practical. You CANNOT legally cut skin without it! Beware of classes that tell you otherwise.
Can i legally microblade after class?
Almost! The Florida health department requires that all tattooing happens in a registered tattoo establishment. Therefore you need to get a tattoo establishment license and a biomedical waste producer license. If you already work in a spa, salon, or tattoo studio that does permanent makeup then you won't need to worry about getting these licenses. However, if you are starting from scratch, I will give you a full list of supplies you need per the Health Department to get these licenses asap. Once you've obtained the supplies, the Health Department will inspect your work space and grant you a Tattoo Establishment License, then you're ready for clients!
why don't you include a machine?
I truly believe every artists should choose which machine works best for their style and budget. Machines can range from $100-3,000 and the amount of money you'd like to invest into your machine should be up to you. In class, you'll be able to use 6 different machines at all different styles and price points so you can begin to understand what will work best for you in the long run. Most machines that are provided in permanent makeup classes are rebranded machines directly from the Chinese manufacturer. Those classes will be marked up because they "include a machine", even though the training most likely got it for a massive discount. The good thing about those machines is that they are cheap! If you decide you'd like one of those machines because it works better for your budget, then I'll absolutely show you where to purchase one. However if you'd like to invest in a higher quality machine, then you should have that option as well (without having to pay for the marked up class). Either way, the choice should be yours.
What makes your class different from others?
There are several different factors that make me different from other classes. First, I never take more than 7 students at a time to ensure everyone gets enough individual attention. I always make time for my students and I'm a local trainer, I do not travel to do my trainings in other cities as I believe students should have access to their trainer even a year after they've completed a course. Class dates are for CLASS! We do not schedule your model during class days as it takes time to let the information sink in and to practice this new skill. After some practice, THEN we book a model individually. I do not have a room full of models going all at the same time, like most trainings. I've heard stories of 5-10 students models going at the same time with one instructor. This is the first time you are tattooing someone's face, the instructor should be watching and guiding your every move. Lastly, I've poured my heart and soul into this training. Every chapter, every exercise, every worksheet, every word was written by me and you will not find this training anywhere else. There are some stock microblading manuals that artists will buy and charge you $3,000 to read them to you in a two day class.
Why is it so expensive?
Typically a Microblading 101 class costs around 2,500-3,500$, only teaches classic microblading and is two days long (one day of theory and the next day a live model). In this class, you will learn microblading, microshading, ombre brows, combo brows and have a full two weeks to get through the course. The pigments, numbing creams and other supplies cost around 600$ to supply in the kits. Also, consider the cost of space to host the classes and compensation for the instructor's time. Keep in mind a large portion of this cost is for your continued mentorship while you build your business. You will have complete access to me as you start to take clients or as questions come up during the beginning months (which can be the most nerve-racking!).
This is the absolute lowest price to give students the best training possible, please understand and respect that this price is non-negotiable. Moreover, the price will increase two hundred dollars within two weeks of class to be able to rush order your supplies and secure a space last minute. To avoid this increase in price you must get your deposit in early!
How do I KNow if i'll be good?
To do microblading or any type of permanent makeup, you need to be artistic. I can teach you how to draw a brow, map a face, or do a simple stroke pattern BUT if you cannot draw the same curve twice or connect the dots, then we are going to have a problem. Basic artistic ability is a must! Other skills you'll need are a steady hand and excellent eye sight. If you have shaky hands and cannot accurately draw a straight line, you wont be able to microblade. Your sight needs to be good enough to see a very faint outline of a brow on skin and to see a single strand of hair. There have been times where I have a driven and business savvy student that ends up not being successful due to these physical restraints. Please understand that this is not a service that everyone can do so be aware of your limitations. With that being said, if you have artistic inclination, a steady hand, magnifying glasses and a relaxed, confident personality then you'll do great!
is there a payment plan?
There is currently no payment plan. You will be billed through a square account so you are able to pay with credit card. I do require a 500$ deposit at least two weeks ahead of time to book your seat in class. Full payment is due the day before class begins.
I want to do all permanent makeup, not just brows.
The permanent makeup industry is set up to learn one a specific service at a time by a master trainer. There are so many things that go into doing different permanent makeup services that if you don't spend the proper time to learn these, you will run into issues. For example, if you tattoo eyeliner in the wrong area it will blow out and cause the pigment to migrate (which will look like terrible eyeshadow). If you use the same pressure throughout the brow during microblading you will scar the tails. If you use the wrong pressure on a dark lip it will hyperpigment and turn black. If you accidentally tattoo over the tear duct it will result in permanent scarring. If you don't know how to tattoo scar tissue you shouldn't be doing areolas or paramedical tattoos. these are all issues that will results in YEARS of trauma for your clients. There is NO giong back on botches tattoos or scarring. Lots of new artists want to learn every service in a two day class for a couple thousand dollars and that's simply not plausible or professional. There ARE programs to teach you multiple permanent makeup services in one class but they are lengthly and from 7-10 thousand. Take your time, master one service at a time and protect your reputation by not making any mistakes.
