Fundamental Training

We Offer The Following Fundamental Courses
* Permanent Cosmetic Fundamentals (includes lips, eyeliner and essential brows)
* Brows only Fundamentals (includes powder brow (ombre) hairstroke brows, combo brows, microblading and corrections
* Scar Revision Fundamentals

Please be aware that not all states or counties require formal fundamental training or licensing, however those that do require a minimum of 100 basic hours and most insurance companies also require a basic fundamental course of 100 or more hours. 
Microblading/Microstroking IS in fact tattooing and therefore practitioners are required to have tattoo license, tattoo permits for their business and tattoo insurance.  2-3 day microblading courses are advanced training and should not be taken without a basic fundamental course.  Please consider this before being sold a course like this, as your state/county may prohibit you from practicing this technique and you may not be able to find an insurance company to insure you without basic fundamentals.

Fundamentals do not require any previous experience.  You will be taught everything you need as a foundation for a career in Permanent Cosmetics.

The course is comprised of a minimum of 100 hours of instruction and practice  including hands on practice modules and live models. Although it is not required, you are strongly urged to come to our clinic to observe procedures as often as possible-this is available to you for up to one year after training, however phone and email support is ongoing.
Manual, textbooks, and in class practice materials are provided to you. We do offer a beginner kit including machine, power supply, needles and pigments at an additional cost (see below)
