Beautiful Brows will be giving UK professionals the chance to learn microblading!
The beginner’s course will be aimed at teaching beauty industry workers this fast growing trend, if you don’t know what it is you can read our blog on it HERE.
Microblading is fast becoming the semi-permanent make up choice for perfect brows and it’s no wonder why, considering the benefits it gives. If you’re looking to expand your salon business then this could very well be the way forward.
With three locations for the masterclass it’s sure to be a far-reaching educational tour for the established beauty brand. Should you attend this 4-day intensive course, educators, who have also been trained by world-class masters and have13 years of experience behind them, will teach you.
The course will also include an additional course by Actfast, the only legal topical anaesthetic training provider in the UK. Anaesthetic is still a medical process and therefore learning the proper way to apply it to your customers for a procedure like microblading is crucial. It will also include: Microblading tool and blade angle, Brow formation on synthetic skin, Golden Ratio, Face shapes, Eye shapes, How to measure the eyebrow, How to use the eyebrow measuring tool, Hair strokes on synthetic skin, Practice strokes on each other, How to take the perfect picture, Colour theory, Organic/non organic pigments, Fitzpatrick Skin tone, Pigment theory, Durability of colour, Contraindications and Contra-actions.
Beautiful Brows products are all fully regulated and safe for use. The full course will cost £2,000 + VAT and will include a full Beautiful Brows microblading kit. The three locations will be Glasgow, Liverpool and London.
Glasgow – 21st – 24th of August
Liverpool – 4th – 7th of September
London – 16th – 19th of October
We spoke to Beautiful Brows Scottish Ambassador Chris Christoforou about the evolution of microblading:
“Over the last 3 to 4 years especially it’s become a lot more popular. Europe took it up first and compared to semi permanent make up you can get a much crisper and more defined look. It’s done by hand and if you get a nice cure with it, it looks amazing. It’s a very sought after treatment by consumers.”
He went on to talk about whom the course would benefit:
“Not only people who do semi permanent make up but also people who do lashes and do nails because its very intricate work they do and we think they’d be very good at, so we’ve aimed it for them as well as people who want to learn how to microblade professionally.”

Defacto Salons at the Scottish Hair and Beauty Show 2016
Wednesday, April 27th, 2016
On Monday we attended this years Scottish Hair and Beauty Show!
The exhibition was held in the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh and featured many names in the Scottish and British hair and beauty industry.
Our very own Natalie and Yvonne arrived for the opening of the event, to try out new products and to give you the best information on them they could!
The winding walkway through the different exhibitors was a bright pink carpet, leading us to our first stand, which was Beautiful Brows. Featured heavily in the beauty industry, beautiful brows are a semi permanent solution to thin pale brows. Offering products from brushes to a full eyebrow kit, Beautiful brows is a well established brand and through encouragement from their Scottish distributor Chris Christoforou, Yvonne was eager to give it a try. Using their brow stencil and a dark brown powder they swept back and forth over Yvonne’s brows, they thickened and lengthened her brows.
We also visited Novalash where Natalie tried out their crème eye shadows and eyeliner set, which was used also as a lipstick and lip liner! The eye shadows were pigmented and when used on the lips they had the consistency of a matte lipstick. The product didn’t feel tacky and lasted all day without creasing or causing chapped lips. A definite if you’re looking for a multipurpose product.
After making a pit stops at some demonstrations by Slick Barbers and the prosecco and cupcake bar, we went on to Max Estrada’s stall. Famous for his cutesy nail art, his skill isn’t to be underestimated. When we arrived he was working on a client, crafting a hand created rosebud.
His talent was evident from his creations and attention to detail. The Max Estrada stall was swamped with customers clamouring to get some of his products. No doubt he had people lined up to get their nails done.
A pleasant surprise at the event was the Ivy Dental stall, there promoting their dental clinic and their new lip filler procedure. They also gave away bags of dental goodies and that’s always a plus!
Dermologica was definitely towering over the rest of the exhibitors with a huge placement near the entrance, selling all their products. Dermologica is a fantastic brand for people looking to improve their skin. With products suitable for all types of skin, if what you’re using isn’t fully working for you then we recommend you give their products a try. Passing by Dermologica and heading to the back of the event hall we ran into a small stall called Golden Curl and they were offering up their new curling and straightening tongs. Natalie happily volunteered to be their guinea pig.
The tongs fully curled a section into a loose ringlet of hair in seconds. Very impressive and would probably cut some people hair routine by a considerable amount. The heat stylers also managed to bring out the natural shine in hair and we were pleased with the result.
Barclay Wolf were offering a new option for hair extensions that removes the damage level of bonded ones and the discomfort of clip ins. Tape in hair extensions is the way to go! With Barclay Wolf’s genius idea of having your extensions in a jar instead of a plastic wrapper they remove the annoyance of trying to fir your clip-ins’ back into the bag afterwards. They are removable, reusable and undetectable. They can last up to three months from the first insertion. We have an upcoming video and article on the way explaining how they are applied and showing how they look at the end. With both highlights and a full head of extensions. So keep an eye out for that!
Yvonne had a go at getting some highlights and she has assured us that they are weightless and barely even noticeable when she’s sleeping. Thanks Barclay Wolf!
Our last stop (as the exhibition was closing) was Nail Gaga. Established down south and trying to break into the market up here. They offer bright and interesting colours for your nails. They also sell professional brushes (with added diamantes in the stems) for whoever would like to try their hand at nail art.
Overall, the event was fantastic and offered a good look at what’s available in the hair and beauty industry for both customers and professionals. We’re looking forwards to attending again next year!
