From Our Student

Just took the 6 day PMU class with Holly and Kay. It was a great accelerated course to take to expand my skills. Holly and Kay are with you every step of the way and after!

Laura Egeberg

Completing the 6 day microblading and micro-shading was the best decision I could’ve made. Kay and Holly are amazing teachers and truly want to set you up for success! Everyone that works there is so welcoming and will answer any questions you have. I’m so looking forward to my apprenticeship at the academy and studio; I’d highly recommend the courses AND the services at MN Brow and Lash.
