Microblading Training

Learn the art of 3D & 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 but rather a manual tool. 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. This is a 2 phase treatment, as 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 Microblading is the latest subtle alternative to outdated Permanent Makeup powder brows.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 intensive course designed to introduce you to the exciting world of 6D microblading using our 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 specially designed client brow consultations to designing, mapping and drawing eyebrows. You will leave this class feeling excited and enthusiastic to practice and master your craft.


What to expect of 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 2days 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 8 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.

Why train with us


Created and managed by Melissa Mcc Araujo, Flutter was born over 11 years ago, modestly starting with the application of individual eyelash extensions. Flutter was the first specialized Eyelash Extension Salon only doing eyelash extensions in Johannesburg. As the industry has evolved so has Flutter, specializing in mastering techniques and new treatments.

Melissa was trained in Permanent makeup with Premier Pigments in 2010. More recently in 2015 Melissa trained in Microblading by Erika Davis South African educator as well as international Master Florence Wong of Malaysia. Melissa brought this knowledge home to become one of the first to offer the Microblading treatment in South Africa in 2015.

Flutter has the expertise and experience to offer comprehensive training with back up, post training support.
