Protecting Your Tresses

I’ve always relished an opportunity to get a new hairstyle. In fact, my hairstylist never knows what I’m going to ask for next. I always keep her in suspense. For the past few years, I’ve switched back and forth between two distinctly different styles. While I enjoy experimenting with my hair, the continuous processing I put it through is detrimental to my tresses. Therefore, I have to be careful to protect my hair. Every day, I apply a deep conditioner to my hair. I also dry my hair on a warm setting instead of a hot one. On this blog, you will learn how to maintain your hairstyle while protecting your tresses from damage.

Four Mistakes Microblading Technicians Must Not Make

Microblading is a cosmetic treatment that fills in eyebrows using a semi-permanent tattoo. A technician applies pigments to the eyebrow area where the natural hairs are thin or non-existent to make the brows look full and lush. Annual touch-ups keep the look fresh as the pigmentation begins to fade. Anyone thinking of learning how to provide this type of treatment needs to remember what not to do if they wish to build a profitable customer base and positive reputation. 

Mistake #1. Not fully explaining the process to their clients before beginning.

The treatment takes at least two hours for most people and there will be noise during the procedure and some discomfort. A numbing gel is applied, but it will not take away all of the pain. The pigmentation is darker immediately after the procedure and will take a few days to fade. There is scabbing afterward as well.  Clients need to be informed about aftercare and how vital the second, touch-up appointment is to the final look. 

 Mistake #2. Not listening to the type of eyebrows the client prefers.  

Not everyone likes the same thing. Not every client will appreciate a brow that others think is perfect for their face shape. People like what they like and happy customers are those that get what they want. 

Mistake #3. Not being careful about sterilization. 

The cosmetology field requires good hygienic practices. It is especially important with treatments that involve piercing the skin. People that contract infections from their salon will not return and they will share this information with everyone they know. 

Mistake #4 Not taking training seriously. 

Certification for microblading takes just a few days of instruction, but those days are very important. The difference between the work performed by someone with a complete understanding of the pigments, tools and skin is very different from a technician that watched a few procedures and then attempted to copy what they saw. Every person is different and how their skin will respond and how to create a particular look requires a real understanding of the process.

There are microblading horror stories printed all over the Internet. No one wants to be the technician that is responsible for this type of media. Get microblading training from a reputable source, follow the advice of more experienced technicians and always listen carefully to the client. Try a company like Beiamed Hair Center. Make certain everyone posts happy reviews on their social media after leaving the salon.
