Blade And Shade Brow Academy

by Katie & Linae

Welcome Future Brow Artist!



      Which course is right for you?

We feel it is very important to be a well rounded Brow Artist and that is why we recommend our 4 Day Blade & Shade Course. By learning Microblading alone, you will be limited to the clients you can take on. Some people are not good candidates for Microblading and will instead require shading or the combination of both (those with oily skin, large pours, age etc...) therefore you will have to turn them away. However, you can learn Microblading first and then Shading at a later date by signing up for our 1 day Shading Only course.



Our Commitment to You!

You will be taught by a Softap/Microblade Certified Instructor.  At the end of the course, you will be Softap/Microblade certified and will receive a certificate allowing you to begin your new career. We feel very confident that you will leave our Academy with the tools, knowledge, and confidence you will need to begin working as your own boss right away! We offer multiple courses to fit your needs
