Course Details

Description & Costs

This hands-on, in-person microblading course is for anyone looking to start their career in the permanent makeup industry as a microblading artist.


*There is no prerequisite licensing or training required to attend this course or to receive your Fundamentals of Microblading Certification. You do NOT have to be a licensed cosmetologist or esthetician to receive your Microblading certification.*


Once you obtain your Microblading Certificate of Training through this  course, you can then submit it to your county’s board of health to  receive your tattoo license (which is required to perform microblading  on clients).


Your training starts the moment you reserve your spot in class. With four weeks of intensive remote pre-coursework and exercises, led exclusively by our founder and instructor, Shannon Housley,  you’ll begin learning the basics of stroke work and brow patterns at your own pace with new assignments each week.


Shannon reviews each weekly microblading training assignment and provides feedback designed to ensure you are practicing and growing as an artist… long before in-person learning commences. With these exercises and assignments, you’ll feel confident and ready for your first day in class.


In-person learning consists of 2 days chocked full of both classroom lectures and hands-on work— as well as your own live microblading model. We’ll cover essential topics and Shannon is there to answer all your questions along the way.


Other brow training academies are packed with 8-10 students. We believe that’s too many for individualized attention.  We guarantee a small class size of four students or less, so you’ll get the most out of your time with us.


You’ll have access to everything you need to hit the ground running after your microblading certification:  business training, marketing, paperwork, policies, and of course, microblading fundamentals.


Your microblading training will conclude when you complete your live model and gain your microblading certification. Shannon will be right next to you for guidance.


Post-class support is key for success. You’ll have access to an online Facebook community of other microblading and permanent makeup artists trained by Shannon so that you can ask questions as you begin your career as a microblading artist.

Our in-class Fundamentals of Microblading Course is taught at our beautiful cosmetic/medical tattooing studio and training facility located in beautiful downtown historic Sharonville, Ohio.

Space is limited to a maximum of 4 students. A $500 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit is required to reserve your seat.
