Why Get Trained in Microblading?
Full, natural looking, beautiful brows are in and bigger than ever! It’s ALL ABOUT THE BROW! Microblading techniques allow clients to finally have the gorgeous eyebrows they crave while avoiding the artificial ‘sharpie’ or fake ‘block of color’ look, Microblading offers the most natural and realistic permanent makeup approach to eyebrow tattoo without the daily hassle of filling in. When done correctly, your clients will delight in saying, “It looks like real hairs!”
Becoming trained in Microblading allows you to add to your arsenal of beauty skills and give your clients what they are begging you for: Natural, Beautiful, Brows.
How long is the class?
The Microblading Essentials Course is 3 FULL days with optional one-on-one live model work with instructor and ongoing mentoring.
How much does it cost?
The Sassy Wink Academy Microblading Essentials course is $3000. One-on-one live model mentor sessions are $600.
What days of the week are classes held?
Courses are held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8am to 3pm each day.
I definitely want to practice on a live model, why isn't this offered as a standard part of the course?
It is the philosophy of the Sassy Wink Academy founder that most students are not ready to begin working on live skin alone after a 3-day course. Only with the undivided guidance of the instructor provided by a scheduled one-on-one live model mentor session should the student experience working on live skin. Weeks and months of practice on paper and synthetic skins is mandatory in order to develop the understanding, muscle memory and new skills for the microblading technique to begin to be performed independently on live models. Sassy Wink Academy offers ongoing mentorship and future live model practice opportunities. There should be no rushing into working on live faces until the student can consistently design two matching brows, duplicate proper hair stroke patterns (mirrored on both brows) and with consistent depth on the mannequin and artificial skin.
What comes with the course?
With your Microblading Essentials Course you receive a student workbook, professional student kit (to complete all practicing on approximately 25 models/clients), certificate of completion, up to 2 FREE shadow mentor sessions and 6 months’ support via Voxer.
How will I know where to buy product?
Your student workbook includes a handout on vendors to purchase more supplies from as you need to replenish and add to your kit.
Do I need special licensing or insurance to offer this service?
Each state regulates permanent cosmetics/tattoo/body art uniquely. It is up to you to check with your state board of cosmetology and state department of health and county for current regulations and licensing requirements. You should carry professional permanent make up liability insurance. Your student workbook includes a handout with suggested companies to obtain quotes from.
Do you offer ongoing support?
Yes! Sassy Wink Academy is your brand not only for entry level lash and brow courses but intermediate and advanced courses as well as ongoing mentorship opportunities. We don’t just fly in for a quick course and fly out. With headquarters in Phoenix, AZ and presence in satellite cities, you have the opportunity to find the support you need as you need it! You should never feel alone! Students can communicate with instructors through Voxer and via telephone.
Will I be certified to do Microblading after this class?
Sassy Wink Academy provides education on Microblading Essentials. Upon leaving the course, students receive a Certificate of Completion, but are not “certified”. After students have practiced diligently and can demonstrate consistent Microblading Artistry (both before, after and healed results) via submitted pictures, then they will be invited to be a certified “Sassy Wink Academy Professional Artist” and will be listed on our directory. (More details on achieving certification given during class)

I’m not an esthetician, cosmetologist or permanent makeup artist, can I take a course through Microblading USA?
No. While it is possible that one could be very talented as a microblading artist with no beauty or skin background, it is in any beauty professional’s long term best interest to have a foundational license or certification.
*Some exceptions made on case by case basis, please call to discuss.
How quickly can I expect to begin taking clients after this course?
This depends on YOU and how comfortable you are after completion of the Microblading Essentials course. Some students dedicate themselves to hours of daily practice and may begin working on models within weeks, then build up to taking paying clients in approximately a month or two. Others slowly work towards this goal and may take three months or more before they are actually beginning to take clients. Those who take advantage of mentorship and return for shadow sessions and live model mentoring reach their goals faster. Be considerate and kind to yourself to allow the time to build up the necessary skill and confidence before taking paying clients. On average, with focused and daily practice, one might expect to feel a level of confidence in their microblading skill within 3-6 months.
