Right now there has never been a better time to enter the field of Permanent Cosmetics.  Since celebrities and others alike have raved about the beautifully natural results Microblading can offer, the demand for this procedure has only gone up and up the past few years, and there seems to be no end in sight!

While the restoration or beautification of someone's face can feel rewarding in itself, this can also be a very lucrative career.  Our courses are designed with the complete novice to microblading in mind.  We take you step-by-step on how to prepare your station and client, but also on record keeping, color theory and corrections, pain control, and ways to aid color retention, how to do a followup appointment with various heal results and how to approach them discussed, and much more!  A deluxe starter kit, with one of the industry's highest quality pigment lines and various tools, is provided.  We only use the best quality so as to obtain the best possible results, and we pass that ideal along to our students as well.

Microblading is the art of using a blade consisting of many needles to implant pigment into the skin by dragging it the proper depth, at a proper angle, and with proper pressure to create natural looking simulated hair strokes to the eyebrow area.  This is a multi-step process which always requires at least one follow-up appointment.  Microblading is ideal for those that need anything from a few missing strokes applied, so as to fill in existing sparse eyebrows, to recreating a complete set of hair simulated eyebrows!

Shading is ideal for people with Microblading or eyebrows that only need or want a bit of color so the brow appears more colorful and fuller.  For those with pre-existing permanent eyebrows, scarring, or pitting of the skin,  combining Shading with Microblading can help camouflage these issues.  Our 1 day Shading Techniques class is for the recent graduate or professional Microblader or Permanent Makeup Provider in mind.  This one day course teaches how to do Powder shading on the whole eyebrow and how to do the popular Ombre & Combo Brow looks.  This course is taught with both hand tools & machine.  Learn both shading techniques & 2 popular styles in one class!  1 Day In-Studio Shading Techniques Course with Certificate and basic starter kit $1200. *To take this course, you will be required to submit proof of prior completion of a microblading or hairstrokes course. 

Microblading and Microblading & Shading courses are Hybrid Courses, which mean that once you pay your 25% total course fee deposit to reserve your spot in the course, you will receive your digital materials to begin at-home study.  It is important that the at-home portion of study is done prior to when the in-studio class starts.  This is so that we can do more hands on and less lecture during our time together.  Full payment for the remaining balance must be paid by Cash or Chasier's check (made payable to the instructor, Desiree Lauterbach), before the start of the first day of the hands-on training workshop.  The hands-on training workshop is 2 days for Microblading OR Microblading & Shading (full powder brow shading & Ombre styles), and the Shading course on its own is only 1 day long. 

Models may be provided but you are encouraged to bring your own. 

* HANDS-ON WORK:  You will be expected to do hands-on work, including a start to finish procedure!  Most trainers do not offer this, instead offer a few minutes of hands-on time tracing only.  You will watch as the instructor does a procedure, you will trace some strokes, assist working on a model (if available), and you will perform a start to finish set of eyebrows.  You will be supervised closely, 100% of the time, and guided through the process.  You MUST have your Blood Borne Pathogens Certification OR you must complete it prior to doing any hands-on procedures with a live model.  You can obtain BBP Certification here.  If done In-Studio, this will reduce your hands on practice/work time.  The Instructor Provider at the Center For Permanent Makeup, Desiree Lauterbach, is a Certified Instructor in BBP and can certify you.

Reservation deposits for training must be paid no later than 2 weeks prior to training start date.  Keep in mind, however, that we have limited spots available and they won't last forever!  Class sizes are limited to 1-on-1 or a small group when taught in-studio or for training tour workshops.
