Is being a semi-permanent cosmetics technician for you?
Are you looking to add a high-end quality treatment to your salon’s list of services, or perhaps looking for a completely new career with a very high earning potential? Semi-permanent make-up is one of the most requested procedures in beauty salons and clinics today. Micropigmentation is definitely here to stay and it can only get better with technology and products advancing so rapidly. These procedures are both safe and medically approved when carried out by competent technicians, and our industry requires more of these to supply the service that the public demands. All semi-permanent cosmetic techniques can be mastered by attending our Smudge-free training courses.
With a good marketing strategy, a steady hand, a critical eye for detail and an artistic flair, a technician can run a lucrative business working only a few hours per week, giving you freedom and flexibility in the times you choose to practise, but this should not be the primary reason you choose this career. A professional manner with a responsible attitude and assertiveness are qualities which will enhance your ability to succeed. Having a good understanding of the skin structure, skin tones and the morphology of the face is very helpful, but you will learn this throughout the course. Good eyesight is a must and so is a very steady hand. The ability to interact with people and lend a sympathetic ear as well as a positive attitude will help greatly in reassuring clients throughout their treatment.
Becoming a semi-permanent makeup technician is for those who enjoy making a positive difference to their clients, using either cosmetic or medical tattooing. Eyebrows in hair simulation, lip and eyeliner procedures are cosmetic treatments, whilst medical tattooing includes areola restoration, hairline re-creation, cosmetic camouflage, to name but a few. All these procedures can have a dramatic effect on the client and can be life-changing.
At Smudge-free we offer a superior level of intensive training which is carried out on a one-to-one basis.
