If you are reading this article, the chances are you’re considering enrolling for a course to become a microblading brow technician or semi-permanent makeup artist. Or perhaps you’ve already had basic training and are now looking to advance your skills to the next level.

The brow industry alone is worth £20m in the UK, with the average woman spending £200 each year on brow treatments, according to recent NPD data. The opportunities are certainly there for driven and aspiring beauticians—and the first step to success is registering for an accredited beauty training course.

But with so many training courses dedicated to brow and semi-permanent makeup techniques, how can you be sure you’ll pick the right one to set you on the path to becoming a qualified beauty therapist?

Not all training courses are created equal…

It’s crucial to do your research before investing in any type of beauty training course. There are many training providers across the country who offer low-price courses that seem enticing—but it is always worth checking the course is regulated by a certified body and provides an accreditation certificate that is insurable.

To practice as a freelance beauty technician or to open a salon, you need to obtain business insurance to protect you and your clients. The insurance needs to include liability and contents cover, plus any legal expenses.  We’ve seen students who have invested in training, only to discover that they haven’t learned as much as they had hoped—and who had to take another course that provides the in-depth training they require.

Look for courses that are accredited (like ours!) This ensures the training will be of the highest quality and delivered with integrity. Enrolling in a course that has a certified accreditation means you’ll be able to obtain business insurance upon the successful completion of the training course.

Learn at your pace

Choose a training provider who understands that you may have other responsibilities, such as childcare or studies, which means full-time training may not be right for you.  We offer beginner and advanced diplomas in semi-permanent make up protocols that are designed to fit around your busy life.

The courses take place partly as home studies and partly in our award-winning training academy near Leicester. All we ask is for is your drive and determination to succeed.

Investing in training for your future career is a huge commitment, so we advise asking training providers for a taster session before deciding if it is right for you.  A reputable trainer will welcome potential students to their academy to understand more about the industry, speak to previous students, and try the beauty devices for themselves.

Does the course include aftercare?

Before you enroll in a course, ask the training provider to share details of their aftercare process. It’s advisable to choose a course that offers ongoing support after you’ve completed the training—because that’s when you’ll have the most questions.

All the microblading and semi-permanent beauty courses we provide at the Jenna Leigh Training Academy benefit from post-course aftercare that is second to none.  Our graduates can message us directly—or visit the academy at no cost to sit-in on a training day so we can continue to guide you.
