What Factors Should I Consider When Choosing A Microblading Artist?
It can be difficult to know which microblading artist to choose for your brow restoration project. This is especially true if you are new to the process of microblading eyebrows. In this article, we will discuss some tips for choosing the right microblading artist for your specific needs. There are a few factors that you should consider when choosing a microblading artist. Some of these factors include skill level, experience, price, and technique.
How Do I Know If The Artist Has The necessary Skills For Microblading?
One of the most important factors that you should consider when choosing a microblading artist is their skill level. Skill level refers to the artist’s ability to perform the microblading procedures correctly. If you are unsure about the skill level of an artist, ask them to demonstrate their technique. Microbalding artists need to have completed a course/s to be able to apply the intricate procedures properly. The most well-known training establishment for micro-blading is the Phi-Academy where artists can start their journey as a student and then progress their skills all the way through to a Grand Master! The Phi-Academy produces certification for those who have completed courses so be sure to ask to see this for peace of mind. Although the artists will likely have it displayed pride of place in their studios for all to see.
How Do I Know If The Microblading Artist Is Experienced?
Another important factor to consider is the artist’s experience. Getting qualified isn’t the end of their journey, it’s merely the beginning. An experienced artist will be able to perform more complex brow restoration procedures than a beginner artist. Furthermore, an experienced artist will be able to answer any questions that you may have about the microblading process as no 2 people are the same. Most artists will document their work and often have a strong social media setup. Be sure to check out Facebook and Instagram (the most popular platforms) so that you can get a feel for their work. You can also get an idea of how long they’ve been practising the art of microblading.
How Do I Know If The Artist Is Pricey?
Another important factor to consider is the artist’s price. You should always compare the price of different artists before making a decision. If you are on a limited budget, you may want to consider an artist with a lower price as they may be starting out and newly qualified. This gives them the chance to practise the art and gain experience and knowledge. If however, you want to make sure you have the brows you’ve always dreamt of then you should expect to pay around £300 for the initial appointment. Follow-up sessions (for touch-ups) will be around £60 but that’s not for another 18 months or so.
How Do I Know If The Microblading Artist Has The Correct Technique?
Another important factor to consider is the artist’s technique. You should always ask an artist to demonstrate their technique before proceeding with the microblading procedures. If you are still uncertain about the artist’s technique, you can ask them to provide you with a video of their work. Artists will often book you in for an initial consultation (30 mins). This gives you a chance to ask questions and go over the technique involved once you’ve decided on the type of brow you’re looking to achieve.
After reviewing the tips in this article, you should be able to choose the perfect microblading artist for your brow restoration project. It’s important to spend some time reviewing the different aspects above and be sure to look into their reviews that specifically mention microblading. Every artist should be able to vary their well-honed technique to get you the perfect looking brows and you’ll get a really good idea of this when you go to the initial consultation.
