Microblading in the U.S.

Los Angeles came out on top with 4.62 salons per 10,000 people in the city. They also had a total of 1,800 microblading salons, which far surpassed any other city. Columbus, OH came in last with note ven 1 salon per 10,000 people (0.72), and they only had a total of 65 microblading salons in the entire city. 

While New York City came in at number 16 on the list, they also had less than one salon per 10,000 people, which was a surprise since they were listed as the top population rank. In total they had 818 microblading salons, which was the second largest amount of salons in a city, but with their population being so high it led to only having 0.93 microblading salons per 10,000 people. Chicago was also a surprise in their ranking being the third most populated city, but the 14th city in Sunna's microblading ranking

Meanwhile Seattle was ranked number 18 in population status, but it was ranked number two in microblading having a total of 355 salons and 4.55 salons per 10,000 people. It's safe to say that there is definitely a market to make money when it comes to brows in general and especially microblading brows.
