Meet Trailblazer Claire Kim

Today we’d like to introduce you to Claire Kim.

Claire, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my business about a year and a half ago.
I was majored in fashion design, working in the fashion industry for my entire time. I have always dreamed of becoming my own boss one day and wanted to work in either beauty or fashion.

When I decided to study and change my career to permanent makeup artist/microblading, I knew this was something I could really enjoy to do for the rest of life. I would always love to see and help a person to become beautiful. It’s not only changing the appearance on a person but also brings so much positivity for their self-confidence.

I’m only been in my job for a year and a half, but I love where I am for every moment of the day.

I’m planning to begin teaching a microblading class soon, so I’m just taking little steps to become where I want to be in the future.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Nothing is easy, but I truly believe if you really try your best, I’m sure there is a spot for you in every industry you are at.

I started to do free microblading for my friends and family.

I charge very small for my clients at the beginning, so I can have more people to come in. You always try to see what is worth for your business not just the money. You will need to build people’s words, which worth more than the money. This will be returning for you something big later on.

Now, I have more clients from referrals and many photos on my portfolio.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Brows by Claire – what should we know?
I’m an owner of Brows By Claire/Brow Studio.

I’m a permanent makeup artist in Los Angeles. I specialized in eyebrow microblading. I offer different services, they are Microblading, Microshading, Ombre Powder Brows, and eyeline tattoo. I offer different techniques of eyebrow tattoo, so my clients will have more services to choose from depending on what they need.

We’re interested to hear your thoughts on female leadership – in particular, what do you feel are the biggest barriers or obstacles?
I feel that the beauty industry is not an easy business to start. Microblaidng has been more popular and getting very competitive these days.

You will need to believe your self and never stop learning where you are at.
