What I Learnt Shaping Over 1000 Pairs of Eyebrows
Updated: Jan 23
Over the past 3 years of doing this business, I have dealt with clients from all walks of life. It is interesting to take note that it is NOT just ladies who go for eyebrow microblading.
I have done the procedure for some men as well!
To do eyebrow microblading well, I had to attend specialized training classes and do lots of practice. I practiced on synthetics skin and mannequins’ heads - burning the midnight oil after my son was asleep.
I learnt from masters from Korea, Vietnam, London and Europe. I also trained with the world renowned microblading school Phiacademy.
Here are the 5 things I learnt after shaping more than 1000 pairs of eyebrows over the years:
#1: Eyebrow Microblading Is Not Easy
To draw tiny feather-like strokes on the eyebrows require intense concentration. It is quite tiring at times. So in order to give my best to all my clients, I take regular breaks to rest up before I proceed to do with another client.
Because of this, I cap the number of clients I serve per day to a maximum of 3 only.
This is also the main reason why requesting me to do your eyebrows is slightly more pricey.
You will get the advantage of my exclusive time and comprehensive experience.
#2: Eyebrow Microblading Can Be Taught
I expanded my business and has slowly taught about a dozen students so far on the fine art and science of eyebrow microblading.
It is a skill that can be taught and learnt if you are passionate about making ladies look good and feel good.
I am happy to share with you that all my staff are experienced and well-trained. I have personally conducted their training and monitored how they worked on our clients’ eyebrows.
Despite the fact that your new eyebrows can last for up to 2 years, Jo Artysan still receives strong continuous demand due to our quality service that spreads via word of mouth and referrals.
#3: Eyebrow Microblading Helps To Lift Your Life
I shared previously on how eyebrow microblading is a worthy investment of your money and time.
Beyond that, I personally know that this service has boosted the confidence of ladies (and some men too!)
With greater confidence, you are:
Able to go through your day with more energy and life (more time to rest instead of busy drawing eyebrows)
Become less concerned about your appearance (because you know you look great!)
Be able to connect to clients better (you can fully focus on them, instead of worrying how you look)
Am I overselling eyebrow microblading? Perhaps.
But the impact that I observed on my clients are undeniable.
#4: We Live In the Social Media Age
You know what people say about “eyes being windows to your soul”?
I believe that beautiful eyebrows makes it easier to gaze into them.
In this social media age, it is unfortunate and sad that sometimes beauty is only skin-deep. It is the beautiful instagram shots that will get lots of likes.
It is a reality that first impressions really do count and we sometimes have to play that game in order to get equal footing.
But let’s play the game in a smart manner and not get too hung up on the likes.
It is not a sin to look good and feel good at the same time.
#5: Eyebrow Microblading Is Here To Stay
I first learnt about eyebrow microblading when I was still studying. Back then, the demand was still low. When I decided to do this full time, I took the steps to acquire the knowledge and skillset to do eyebrow microblading well.
Over the past 2-3 years, I have seen the interest in this process skyrocket. There is a strong demand for beautiful eyebrows.
It is also one of the reasons why I am able to open my Jo Artysan Microblading Studio & Academy in the heart of Orchard.
This is not a random fashion trend. Techniques are constantly being perfected and tools are always being refined to provide a great experience for clients.
As such, I also provide training for ladies who are interested to acquire this skill.
When you are armed with this knowledge - you can choose to open your own business or join one of the many beauty studios that are in need of such fine eyebrow microblading artists.
For those who are in the beauty industry, this is another incoming source of potential revenue that you have yet to tap on.
You can offer it as an add-on to your base of existing clients.
You might only see beautiful eyebrows as the final outcome.
But for me, I see a beautiful and confident client who emerges out of my studio feeling fantastic and good about themselves.
