Nano & Ombre
Brow Training

Microblading is out... Nano brows are in. 

The permanent makeup industry is moving away from microblading.

Most artists are choosing to the use the machine full time to create ombre brows and beautiful hair stroke patterns that look like microblading without the skin trauma. 

Full Machine Brow Course

In this 101 class, you will learn all the brow services that I personally provide to be able to accommodate every client.

You will soon find out that microblading can only be performed on 20-30% of clients and could cause scarring and discoloration over time. 

Therefore it's better to start your career learning all the services with a machine! 

You will learn:

  • nano brows (hair strokes)
  • manual shading
  • ombre/powdered brows
  • combo brows

Program Schedule

  • The full program is 10 days to 2 weeks long.
  • The in-class portion of this program is three days long (usually a Sat/Sun/Mon). During that time, we will work only on worksheets, fake skins and dummy heads to properly learn these new skills.
  • You will then have a week or two to finish your fake skins and practice as much as possible at home, I call this 'Practice Week'. I encourage my students to send me photos of their work so I can correct and send feedback during this week.
  • After your practice week, we will set up a time to do a model together. I always do models individually to ensure you are having undivided attention through your appointment. It can be nerve racking the first time you do this procedure, therefore only one student at a time will be working on their model.  

Take a Peek Inside

Module 1

Cross Contamination and Tattoo Licensing 

I find many artists are coming out of a 1-2 day training with zero knowledge on how to protect themselves and their clients from cross contamination. There are also lots of artists practicing ILLEGALLY because they were never taught to get the proper licensing in their class. This is a nightmare if anything ever went wrong in a procedure...

In this module, you'll…
