Most frequent questions and answers
A: Microblading, Microshading, and Tattoo Removal all fall under the PMU category.
A: Currently we only offer classes in San Diego but if you have 3+ students interested in learning one of our training programs, we would be happy to make travel arrangements.
A: We covet color theory in our Beginner Microblading Course. We will teach you all about Tina Davies pigments, their undertone colors, who to use them on, how to mix them, etc. You will then make a color chart with the pigments in your kit so you can better see the undertones in the colors and it’s also a great tool to show your clients when picking out a color.
A: Ombre brows are typically referred to when talking about ‘machine shading’ options and different shading techniques. Ombre just means that the brows will be lighter toward the front of the brow (toward the nose) and then get darker as you move closer to the tip of the tail. This can also be achieved with Microshading.
Powder brows is another form of permanent makeup and is done with a machine shading technique. When we teach ‘Microshading’, the shading portion can be considered ‘powder brows’ as a machine is used to tap ink into the skin creating a powder appearance.
A: Absolutely! Being in the beauty industry means that you can run your own business and make your own hours. Who wouldn’t want that? Specifically the permanent makeup and permanent cosmetics industry can prove to be very lucrative. Permanent makeup has come a long way and it now gives women a natural look without daily effort. Women can wake up and have a shorter skin care routine and the perfect brow shape. Who wouldn’t want a more simple morning routine?

A: If you’re looking into getting into permanent eyebrows, you should start with microblading training. Our beginner course will give you the in-depth, step by step guidance and hands-on training you will need to start off on the right foot. You will learn color theory, brow mapping, stroke pattern, and you will get to work on a live model. You don’t need to be in cosmetology to take this course or any other permanent makeup courses.
Once you have completed that course, you will want to take Microshading and Tattoo Removal. In the Microshading training program you will be taught a shading technique that you will be able to pair with your Microblading skills. It’s best to know both Microblading and Microshading because the type of brows you give someone will depend on the client’s skin type. If a client’s skin is more oily, they will need Microshading. If a client has dry or normal skin and their brow hair is thin, they could be a good candidate for Microblading.
Tattoo Removal is also great to know because if you have these three skills, you won’t have to turn away any clients.
A: There is nothing you necessarily need to do prior to training. However, you will need to obtain your Body Art Permit prior to working on a live model. Every county is different but in San Diego, you must take a bloodborne pathogen course prior to applying for your permit. Those are typically $30-35 and take about 2 hours to complete. For a list of items you must turn in to apply for your permit, check out San Diego’s Health Department’s site here.
A: Microblading is a form of permanent makeup where a small blade is used to create thin hair-like strokes throughout a person’s brows, giving the illusion of a full, natural brow. Is it a semi-permanent procedure, with results lasting 1-3 years. Microblading is meant to be a natural enhancement, and to create the appearance of full, beautiful brows. It looks most natural on clients who have full brow hair, and are wanting to perfect their shape and add natural fullness. The finer hair you have, the more natural it will appear. This is not an ideal service for those with little natural hair, hair that is patchy, or coarse hair.
A Microshaded brow is a combination brow combining microblading strokes with machine shading. Like microblading, results typically last 1-3 years depending on your skin type. If you have naturally sparse brow hair or uneven brow growth, a combination brow is perfect for you! Soft shading blends out any unevenness in the growth and can give a more 3D result. It is also ideal for those looking for a more defined or filled in brow. We can add as much or as little shading to give a variety of different looks!
