The great thing about the beauty industry is that it’s an ever-changing industry with new up and coming artists entering it every day. The bad thing about the beauty industry? It’s an ever-changing industry with new up and coming artists entering it every day.
In my more than 10 years of experience as a licensed aesthetician, I’ve done my fair share of corrective work on new clients who had some pretty horrific experiences with eyebrow artists who thought they knew what they were doing.
So I’m offering my top 7 tips on what to look for in your next eyebrow artist.
- The brow artist should be licensed and trained specifically in microblading.
- The brow artist should have first aid and bloodborne pathogen training.
- The brow artist should ask health history questions in order to avoid any adverse reactions.
- The brow artist should either be using sterile single use handles (that hold the blade) or sterilizing their tools using an autoclave between clients.
- The brow artist should be able to show samples of their work that demonstrate they do the kind of design work you like, otherwise, you’re taking a gamble that the artist can deliver the results you want.
- The brow artist should offer a consultation prior to your treatment.
- They should also have a clean studio/salon. Take notice of the studio prior to the start of your treatment. If something doesn’t feel or look right, trust your gut!
