California Brows Microblading Essentials is a self-paced, online learning experience. Through this innovative virtual platform, students will be immersed in a comprehensive curriculum that includes over 60 training videos. Students no longer need to feel rushed or worried about forgetting the important information that is vital to becoming an expert microblading artist. The curriculum is outside of the scope of a "one size fits all" microblading class. Learn to design the eyebrows specific to the unique brow bone and facial structure of your client. Master the ability to create consistent hair stroke patterns mirroring one another on each brow, apply all developed abilities while incorporating all training guidelines as instructed.
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 offered via an innovative, virtual platform that can be viewed from any computer, tablet, or smartphone. 12 months access is provided to the course upon purchase. One-on-one support and mentoring are available in conjunction with Microblading Essentials via the Voxer app for an additional fee.
How much does it cost?
The Microblading Essentials course is normally $1997. It is currently being offered for $997!
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 curriculum developer that most students are not ready to begin working on live skin alone after a 3 to the 5-day course. Weeks and months of practice on paper and synthetic skins are 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. 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. Ongoing mentorship and future live model practice opportunities are available for those who qualify at an additional cost.
What comes with the Microblading Essentials course?
With your Microblading Essentials Course, you receive a PDF downloadable student workbook, Student Practice kit (to complete all required practice sessions), and a certificate of completion.
How will I know where to buy more products?
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 (country and province) regulates permanent cosmetics/tattoo/body art uniquely. It is up to you to check with your state board of cosmetology and/or 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?
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 in person.*
*Additional support available upon request, based on instructor availability and for an additional fee.
Will I be certified to do Microblading after this class?
California Brows provides education on Microblading Essentials. Upon leaving the course, students receive a Certificate of Completion, but are not “certified”. There is NO CERTIFYING BODY OR BOARD REGULATING MICROBLADING OR PERMANENT MAKEUP, therefore, technically no one has the authority to “certify”. After students have practiced diligently and can demonstrate consistent Microblading Artistry (both before, after, and healed results) via submitted pictures, then they may be recognized as a “California Brows APPROVED Professional Artist” and will be promoted via social media as such.
Do I receive a certificate?
Yes. Students will receive a certificate of completion upon completing the Microblading Essentials course in its entirety, by emailing: email@example.com

I’m not an esthetician, cosmetologist, or permanent makeup artist, can I take the Microblading Essentials or Edge course?
YES. But bear in mind that 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. Everyone will encounter a learning curve while studying the microblading techniques. However, those with no beauty background at all may experience a greater learning curve.
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 as little as 1-2 months. Others slowly work towards this goal and may take 3 months or more before they are actually beginning to take clients. Those who take advantage of mentorship via Voxer and return for live model mentoring (Microblading Edge course) reach their goals faster. Be considerate and kind to yourself to allow 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.
It is also very important that you research the requirements in your particular geographic location. This includes the health department and any other regulatory agencies.
What is your refund policy?
California Brows and the Lash & Brow Academy strive for complete student satisfaction, however, due to the nature of our virtual, online courses which provide immediate access to all information, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS. For those attending any in-person courses or mentoring, we do not offer refunds after attendance. We do not offer refunds for non-refundable deposits to hold a spot as spaces are limited.
