Esthetics & Permanent Cosmetics Continuing Education

Continuing Education for Esthetics & Permanent Cosmetics

We offer continuing education and other post-licensing training in both Esthetics and Permanent Cosmetics.


Continuing education for all estheticians.  They take you beyond what you learned in beauty school.  They give you the most popular skills that clients want and expect you to know.

All classes are privately scheduled. Most are private 1:1 classes.  Just you and I. Occasionally, I works with 2 students. We schedule the classes when you are ready and need them.

These are not product specific classes but focused on being educational in nature unless otherwise specified. Please feel free to call with questions. I look forward to seeing you in class soon to hone your skills or expand your knowledge.  Prepare for the future now.  Lure those clients in with skills and techniques most estheticians only wish they had.

 A certificate is given for each completed class.

Please contact my office and we will schedule a date for your next class!!  

 Classes are available by pre-registration only.  A deposit is required at the time of registration.     Please call: 541-485-1004.

Advanced Esthetic Classes run from 9 AM to 4 PM with a 1-hour lunch, but the duration of an individual class may vary depending on the number of participants and number of models available.   We cannot guarantee a model will be available for any specific service so if there is something you specifically want to learn, please indicate this on your registration form and ask about bringing in an outside model. Licensed estheticians or esthetic students may not attend as non-class member models.  All attendees will give and receive the treatments learned in that class.

Single student private training: $1000 per day.

Two students in a class $600 per day, each.

This is the textbook used in all classes.

Workshops - 2019

Correcting Bad Brows…

Color theory for permanent cosmetics is much more complex than for traditional tattooing. The better we understand color theory, the easier it becomes to select the perfect color for the client so it will age beautifully.

Clients who come in for brow re-enhancements bring their own set of color challenges as well as shape correction needs. Funky unevenly faded brows, greenish brows, grey brows, old bluish brows. There isn’t one answer or solution… it all depends. We’ll take an in-depth look at the problems and solutions.  What you can do… and what you can’t with color correction and shape adjustment.

  •  Color correction
  •  Shape modification
  •  Removal / lightning.
