One of the newest trends in the beauty world is microblading.
A form of semi-permanent tattooing, microblading gives those with sparse eyebrows a fuller look. Although the idea of tattooing your face might sound extreme, microblading offers pleasing results as long as the esthetician is trained correctly and using the right supplies.
Pen: Your microblading pen is what will hold the various types of blades. Make sure your pen has a good grip to ensure smooth strokes and easy handling.
Blades: There are a variety of blades that achieve different hair strokes. You want to have a good selection at hand to customize each client’s treatments, but there are two main types of blades you need be aware of:
- Hard Blade: For bold strokes, a hard blade is best handled by an experienced microblader because ink tends to sink deeper into the skin with less pressure.
- Classic Flexible Blade: This is ideal for all skin types, but work really well with thin or aged skin. With this blade, you get softer strokes.
Pigment: As your client list grows, you’ll want to have a large enough assortment of colors to suit a variety of skin types.
With any salon or spa procedure, clean-up is always necessary, but those supplies are also incredibly important. You don’t want to compromise a top-notch job with stray lint or excess ink that wasn’t picked up.
