First, What Exactly Is Microblading?
The Microblading procedure exploded in the beauty industry in the United States and Europe around 2010. It's a semi-permanent procedure where ink is placed under the epidermis layer of the skin with a manual microblading tool. The manual microblading tool is far less painful than the digital microblading machine. The digital machine replicates a tattoo machine and is extremely painful even with numbing cream. Clients prefer the manual procedure over the digital procedure for this reason. Microblading simulates real individual eyebrow hairs and lasts up to 2 years with proper care. It produces great results for people who simply don't like their eyebrows, Alopecia sufferers, and even people who have lost their hair due to different medical conditions and recovering chemotherapy patients.

Locate Your State or County's Microblading Requirements
IMPORTANT NOTE: The first step in becoming a Microblader is getting certified. A license cannot be obtained from a Microblading school. Licensure must be issued by your local or state health department official. Laws are subject to change. Contact these departments directly for their requirements.
Under the Public Health Act, there are no license requirements to microblade in Canada. But you must be a fully trained and certified Microblader. The Microblading establishments in Canada are approved and governed by the Environmental Health Department.
