This week we started training our newest batch of Microblading specialists, three for our NYC salon and two for Chicago. It's a long road ahead for these talented individuals, and the next three weeks training in our NYC salon are crucial.
Our Training Director Michelle Wu has a comprehensive three-week plan for them-- fifteen days, 8-10 hours a day (I always wonder how other trainers can train in two or three days, that's barely scratching the surface!).
They will go through theory and drawing lots and lots of balanced brows-- on paper, on leather, on mannequins, and finally on real people. Michelle scrutinizes each stroke, and teaches them our EverTrue "trade secrets" on how to create brow shapes with strokes best suited for Microblading. Clue: there is a lot of structure to brows, and it's not about having a "free hand". Each stroke has a proper position.
And then, the models. At least 16 models for each of them, of varying skin types and brow situations. Nothing replaces hands-on experience. No theory can replace working with real-live people.
So, wish them luck! And meet them soon in our NYC or Chicago salons at the end of October!
