Being a manual skill, microblading requires a certain amount of time spent practicing. 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 practice and basic problems of the technique and skin. After this two-day microblading course, the students stay in daily contact with the Academy via the Craft Master application where they upload their works and pass levels. Only when they pass all eleven levels they obtain their certificate as a PhiBrows Artist. The duration of the online course is 6 months however on average, the time required to obtaining the certificate is between 3 and 4 months. Students spend about 150 hours practicing during this time. It is important that students understand that the art of microblading cannot be perfected in two days. This is why PhiBrows has incorporated the follow on training to allow students to perfect their technique. Success can only be achieved by consistent practice and communication with your master.
The theoretical part of microblading course:
Knowing when we must not do the treatment is equally important as knowing how to draw the 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 first day and practice on live models on the second day. Practicing on live models represents filling in the strokes drawn by a master so that there is no possibility for the students to make mistakes since they are working on the existing marks. The aim of this practice is that the students see how it feels to work on real skin and to eliminate fear in this way. Another aim of this practice is to get the feeling for 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 in order to avoid possible problems.
