I’m looking to start a career in permanent cosmetics, what should I look for in a class?
First thing, you want to make sure the school shows great communication with you. As their student, the school needs to show interest in your needs and concerns. You want to make sure the class you choose has a complete curriculum that covers theory, hands on practice as well as supervised live procedures. The only way you will succeed in class and out in the real world will be with as much hands on experience as you can earn.
Can anyone learn permanent makeup?
Yes, anyone with the desire to learn permanent makeup is capable of learning. We have many students that join the academy with zero experience and leave with the confidence they need to get started.
A passion for success in this field, an artistic eye and experience in the beauty industry such as cosmetology, makeup artists, estheticians and nail technicians is ideal.
However, we’ve seen highly successful technicians in PMU come from various backgrounds including architects, medical professionals, and corporate professionals with a creative side. A strong foundation in Fundamental training is the key to success.
