4 stars and below: Beginner course
If you don’t have any experience with microblading, then a beginner course is perfect for you! You’ll learn all about the history of microblading and what the industry is like today, plus you get lessons on color theory. But don’t worry, it’s not all talk. You’ll also learn different brushstroke techniques, how to choose clients, and how to market your business.9 stars: Intermediate course
If you have some experience with microblading, then you’ll need courses that will refine your skills. We used to offer intermediate classes, but we’ve since developed our beginner class to be more informative and our advanced class to be more challenging.
If you feel like you lack training in basics, microblading theory, marketing, and client services, then start with our beginner classes.
If you’ve previously taken a beginner class with us, then it’s time to take on an advanced class.
11 stars and above: Advanced course
If you have previously taken a beginner microblading class, then advanced classes are for you. We give you the tools to perfect your brushstrokes, learn how to apply the right amount of pressure, and deal with different kinds of customers. The best part? You get to deal with a real, live client from the time they book an appointment to the day they get their microblading session.

To fully expand your skill set, you’ll need more than one expertise. Eyebrow microblading remains the most popular permanent makeup service, but who knows what will catch on next? Get your training in other areas today, so you can get a head start in all things permanent makeup tomorrow.

Deciding on an area of focus depends on your interests and what your market needs. Always conduct research before enrolling in a training course!
Do I really need to get a training course?
Yes! Not only will training courses help you become a better artist, they also help clients trust you. If you were a client, would you choose a microblading artist without formal training over someone who enrolled in courses?
Plus, our training courses orient you about safety standards and sanitation practices. You get acquainted with the different microblading tools, too, instead of just reading about them on the internet.
