Microblading: How’s and Why’s
Microblading is a type of permanent makeup where you create natural-looking brows to enhance sparsely-filled eyebrows. When done properly, a single microblading result can last for 12 to 18 months. This costs an average of $500 to $2,000, plus the follow-up session (as needed) to finalize the look of your brows and ensure excellent coverage.
Microblading is an intricate process that requires expertise, experience, and confidence. That said, you want to find a credible artist that can perform the task flawlessly.
If you are the aspiring candidate, you need to be certified by a legitimate microblading body to prove your skills and perform the treatment well. Here’s how:
Preparing for a Certification Exam
Take a Microblading Eyebrows Training
Before taking a microblading certification exam, you need to take a microblading training from a reputable microblading academy in Chicago, which takes about a week to complete.
By the end of the microshading training, you should be given a document that indicates the number of hours you have trained, the trainer’s signature, and a statement that you have successfully completed the microblading training. If you can, take pictures of your work so you can create a portfolio for your future business.

Next, look for a certified technician to provide your apprenticeship program. This will let you hone your skills and get you more contact hours. An apprenticeship is an unpaid program, but you can ask for tips and have the technician charge clients with an apprenticeship fee.
Getting Certified to be a Microblading Artist
Before the certification exam, take a Bloodborne Pathogens Standard course. This costs around $25 dollars an hour.
Now that you are ready, join a certification organization to take an exam. The American Academy of Micropigmentation (AAM) is more popular in the US while The Society of Pigment Professionals (SPCP) is widely known abroad. You can choose either one. It costs $250 per exam.
Once you have taken and passed the exam, the final step is to get licensed by the DOH. Check the application process and requirements for a seamless transaction.
