Most salons price microblading treatments between £250 and £750. Much like in every industry, there are significant price differentials and many factors that go into setting a price point. There’s also the question of quality. Interestingly, it’s not always the case that a lower price reflects a poor service. Personally, I’ve seen what is marketed as high-end microblading that those in the industry would describe as subpar. On the other hand, lower-priced salons can often leave your brows looking incredible.
In reality, the price doesn’t tell you everything. The only real way to get a feel for the quality of the service you might expect is to look at previous work. Most salons will show you before and after pictures on their website and some will be posting their work regularly to social media platforms such as Instagram.
Then there’s talking to people you know and asking for a recommendation or reading through reviews. In this case, it’s important not just to look at the star rating but rather the words that have been written by clients, just to make sure the salon you choose is a good fit for you.
Microblading is a very personal service and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for most people. Look to see if salons provide more than one set shape so that they can cater to your unique features as what may look fantastic on a before and after photo of somebody else, may not be quite right for you.
When you make an enquiry, you should make sure you feel comfortable with the person you speak to and you’re confident that you trust the practitioner with one of the most prominent features of your face. Don’t hesitate to bring up any concerns that you have as it’s quite natural for those who are receiving a microblading treatment for the first time to be a little nervous.
The price you pay is for more than just the process of microblading and includes the service you should expect as a client.
