Learn the art of 3D and 6D Microblading
Microblading, Eyebrow Embroidery and/or Eyebrow Feathering which is performed using a handheld tool comprised of micro needles in the shape of a blade. Our technique does not make use of a machine. The micro blade is dipped into pigment and then deposited into the dermis, the outermost layer of skin. This technique gives extremely fine, crisp and natural looking hair strokes that last anything up to 3 years. A second perfecting session is required to complete the strokes. Microblading is the latest subtle alternative to outdated Permanent Makeup powder brows. The colour is quite shallowly implanted into the surface of the skin. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour and will blend perfectly into your natural brows. The results are realistic, flawless, fuller looking brows.
Our brand new and improved training course is a 2 day (3rd day optional) intensive course designed to introduce you to the exciting world of 6D microblading using our very own stroke pattern sequence so that you may become a working microblading therapist. This comprehensive class will teach you all aspects of 3-6D microblading, from custom designed client brow consultations to designing, mapping and drawing eyebrows. You will leave this class feeling enthusiastic to practice and master your craft.
No prior experience or license required. Our optional 3rd day is highly recommended for those who are not experienced in permanent makeup, but not compulsory. A great benefit of doing the Urban Lash & Brow Institute training is the amazing chance to work shadow or even freelance in our busy City Centre salon - we always need microblading freelancers! A great opportunity to be your own boss.
After signing up for our Urban Lash & Brow Institute 6D Microblading course you will be given our latest updated self-study (ideally 2 weeks) prior to in-class training.

What to expect from our Microblading Training:
It’s wise to manage your expectations of such a specialised course such as Microblading, this is by no means an easy course and the learning does not stop after class. The course itself is merely the initial step comprising of 2, possibly 3 days covering theoretical training, demonstration and practical knowledge of the treatment. Plus some practical tips on working in a salon with clients.
Eyebrow drawing is as complex as any other art form. It is never enough to just sit, listen and learn. You will need to practice, practice,practice. The skill of eyebrow drawing is crafted after long periods of practice and communication between student and teacher, which commences immediately after the initial training. Not everyone will make it.
In general, the average time necessary for gaining your certification is about 2- 3 months, between 7 - 10 Case studies as well as a few sheets of artificial skin. Our main goal in this 2 day course is to teach you how to practice. The certification process will comprise of 7 successful models, submitted via photographs. The work is either perfect or is a fail. 6 Out of 10 students may qualify for a certificate (unfortunately I think many therapists will continue doing Microblading regardless of obtaining their certificate)
Our communication need not stop after the course is completed. Only once you begin working will an abundance of questions appear, then you are going to need all the support you can get. Just a reminder – the process of achieving perfection is a lifelong journey.
On completion of your Self Study & 2 (or 3) day training at the Institute you will then be expected to complete a total of 10 successful case studies. 10 Case studies (your 2nd model, 3rd and 4th optional class models count as case studies too) These studies need to be emailed to your trainer individually for scoring & assessment in order to obtain your Urban Lash & Brow Institute Microblading Certificate. Please note not all students will qualify for certification and there is no guarantee of success unless criteria is met. We feel this sets us apart and upholds a high standard for the microblading industry.
