Frequently Asked Questions (Academy)
Can anyone learn Permanent Makeup?

Each student enters the course inexperienced and after training leaves with the confidence 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. Over the last few years we have seen a rise of highly successful technicians in PMU coming from backgrounds in classic art, architects, medical practitioners and even corporate professionals that have a creative side and want to change to a career that they love. A strong foundation in Fundamental training is the key to success.
