Alexus Schlotfeldt

Alexus began her journey into her Lash Teaching career back in 2020. Going from the sales industry to becoming a successful lash artist was the complete 180 she needed in order to live a life where she truly enjoyed what she was doing for a living, and to create a flexible schedule for herself!

Tegan Buchholz

Tegan Buchholz

Tegan began her journey as a permanent makeup artist back in the fall of 2022. Despite the initial lack of support from her friends and family for pursuing a career in the beauty industry, she took a leap of faith and left her 9-5 job in nursing to follow her true passion. First, Tegan dabbled in cosmetology, eventually venturing into the permanent makeup industry. Already, Tegan has been showing an immense amount of growth in her work throughout her apprenticeship here at MN Brow Lash & Medspa Academy; and with the immense amount of support from our staff/trainers and thorough education, Tegan is around the corner from not only doing what she loves most for a living, but being successful at it too!

In this video, Samantha describes her experience taking the 6 Day Permanent Makeup course here at MN Brow Lash & Medspa Academy. After hearing about the permanent makeup industry back in 2016, her interest was immediately sparked. She finally decided to take a leap of faith into the permanent makeup industry in June of 2022 by enrolling in our 6 Day permanent makeup course and acquiring education in microblading, microshading, powder ombre shading, lip blushing and eyeliners. Samantha most enjoys machine work techniques and is actively working on improving her manual blading skills. With only ⅓ of her apprenticeship to go, Samantha continues to acquire all the education and experience she can get in order to thrive as a successful permanent makeup artist!

Joanie Williamson

Joanie Williamson

Joanie began her permanent makeup journey back in September of 2021 when she initially took our 6 Day Fundamental Permanent Makeup Training course. Despite the lack of Body Art Licensing requirements in her home state of Wisconsin, Joanie wanted to make sure she felt comfortable working on skin before taking clients and committing to a full time permanent makeup business. In order to do this, she not only completed a 50 hour apprenticeship with our academy, she also came back a handful of times to retake our 6 Day PMU course in order to refresh her knowledge and skills on permanent makeup techniques. Just a little over a year later, Joanie is already owning and operating her own private permanent makeup business, Brow Lala Studio, in La Crosse, WI!

Is Permanent Makeup regulated in MN?
The state of Minnesota Health Department regulates these body art programs: piercing, tattoo, body arts, dry tattoo, microblading and permanent makeup services. https://www.health.state.mn.us/facilities/providers/bodyart/index.html
To obtain a body art license in the state of Minnesota, you are required to apprentice under a body art supervisor ( who is fully licensed in MN ) for 200 hours hands-on human skin time.
An application for a temporary body art license is required to be filled out by both the student and the qualified supervisor.
