How much money can I earn?

Are you ready to increase your earnings bifold or trifold or even more?

Well, let’s see.  An average permanent cosmetics/microblading session takes two to three hours and you can set your fees anywhere from $450 to $850 (or more).
When you learn permanent makeup, you can earn a little or a lot. It’s up to you!
You can treat one client or several clients per day, week or month. Again, it’s up to you!
Let’s say you will charge only $600 per procedure.
One client per day x 5 days per week = $3,000 per week or $12,000 per month.
That’s an extra $156,000 per year!
How does that compare to your current earnings?
We teach everything you need to know to get started!
You’ll even get a professional starter kit enough products needed to work on your first clients as soon as you return home without waiting on orders to arrive.

What is a hosted class?

There are times when we are asked to travel to another location for trainings.  Hosts can get a free training with enough registrations.  Some hosts keep this training for themselves.  Others give it to a well deserved employee, or divide the value between several people to reduce the cost for everyone.  Contact us here to inquire about hosting us for a training event at your location!

       Step 2:  Return required forms via the same email you receive them from along with payment to hold a spot for you in class.

Where do I return the forms and make payment?         

There are two options to hold your spot for the requested class.

Can I be a model?

We are constantly in need of models!  We have two types of models.  Student models and Instructor models.  All work done by students on models is fully supervised by the instructor.  Work done by students is quite good, but you have to remember they are just learning.  Our clients who have had work done by students have been very happy with their results.  If you prefer, you can request to be done by a professional instructor during a class demonstration.  Every class needs both types of models.  

All models must be 18 years of age or older and must be in good health.  

Models should have no previous permanent makeup tattooing in the area that we will be working on.  If it was done years ago and is pretty much faded to nothing, we may make an exception if you contact us. 

 

 

 

How much do I pay if I'm a model?

We need models for eyebrows, eyeliner and lip color.

Models pay $100 for getting their procedure done by a student.

Models pay $200 for getting their procedure done by a professional instructor.

For more information or to have your name added to our list to become model for any permanent makeup procedure, contact us here.
