Accredited Certification: Microblading 

Class Hours

10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Microblading is a manual semi-permanent technique. Microblading requires a certain amount of time spent practising. This amount of time is not counted in days. It is counted in months. The initial two-day microblading course represents an introduction to the technique where the students become familiar with the practice and basic problems of the technique and skin. After this two-day microblading course, the students should spend three to four months practising; on average, students spend 150hours so they can become proficient.


Knowing when we must not do the treatment is equally important as knowing how to draw eyebrows. The theoretical part focuses on skin problems, post-treatment care, pigments, shape, symmetry, etc.

The practical part comes down to practice on skin simulation on the second day and practice on live models on the third day. Practising on live models represents filling in the strokes drawn by the instructor so that there isn’t a possibility for the students to make mistakes since they are working on the existing guidelines. 

The aim of this hands on practice is that the students see how it feels to work on real skin and to eliminate any fear they may have. Another aim of hands on practice is to get the right pressure to a certain extent. The topic of hygiene is the most important one, and it is presented through a sequence of preventive steps that need to be taken to avoid possible problems.

It will be our pleasure to share our knowledge with you.
