I took my first class with innovative in January 2019. I was nervous, hesitant, unsure about where this new path might take me and if I was making the right choice. Immediately after my first day I knew I made the right choice. Ciara and Jen are BY FAR the most supportive, confident, next level educators that take you from brand new to you freaking got this girl! I’ve taken multiple courses with them and leave confident in my education and skills. From in class to day to day, these ladies are ready to help 24-7 no matter the issue. I have PERSONALLY called them out of the blue with a question, a favour to ask, a voice to cam my nerves, and although they’re scheduele a are busy themselves, they ALWAYS make time for their students, current and past. I cannot thank these babes enough for kick starting my career and giving me the skills and confidence in myself to slay the game.

I can’t say enough about innovative beauty’s training.

There are so many short courses in microblading, and cosmetic tattooing, I was very reluctant to invest my money into a course I wouldn’t be satisfied with. After a short conversation with Jen, I felt ease and excitement as she too had experienced training that leaves u feeling lost and almost more confused. I have pretty high expectations when it comes to training and these girls at Innovative surpassed that.

 

They provide the knowledge, tools, and well rounded training, from intake forms to sanitation which are all imperative to a successful practice. But the biggest bonus is the ongoing support and feedback.

If anyone’s taken previous training then you know, the questions come up as you go, and these girls are there to answer questions and provide feedback. Having that support ongoing has been imperative to my growth and success, and probably my favourite aspect of this training. It really is what makes innovative unique and feels like a little family I can connect with when needed!

 

Ciara and Jen both bring their own set of skills to the table,  creating a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.

 

Training with innovative renewed my excitement for this industry and career, and I’m very happy with my investment, and would recommend this to anyone looking to further their skills in the PMU industry.

 

I’m looking forward to more education in the future!!

Innovative Beauty Academy.... what can I say? It feels like being brought into a family; one where you have two incredible women and artists guiding you and cheering you on every step of the way. 

 

My journey to finding the “perfect fit” for a training academy was not a fast one. I had been quietly studying the industry for over two years before making the plunge. Had I waited too long? Was I going to be any good? Was I in over my head? You see, I had no prior experience in the Permananet Makeup industry. I have no experience with color theory or the artistry that was involved. I was coming from a healthcare background and and had an eagerness to learn. 

 

Enter Jen and Ciara. From the first moment I entered the studio, their witty banter set me at ease. They had a natural flow and rhythm to the way that they teach and their individual eyes for detail and artistic flair compliment each other. Their steady patience and determination to see myself and each of my peers (regardless of experience) succeed was by far one of my favourite elements of my courses. Since training with fabulous ladies; I have begun to grow  a business with the knowledge and passion to make it last. Each client I see, I am reminded that I have a whole tribe of women and mentors behind me every step of the way. When you make the choice to train with these women, in that wonderful place. You are finding a new home. Thank you! ❤️

I trained with Innovative back in January at their beautiful studio in Okotoks. Jenn & Ciara are absolute masters of their craft. The program they put together involved manual and machine shading and blading. They prioritized the highest standards in the industry and made it so much fun to do so. I left fully confident in my skills and have been so successful in my pursuits. I have ongoing support and mentorship as well as a relationship with other artists in the community to share with and grow! I couldn't be happier with my expereince from Innovative.

I was referred to Innovative Beauty Academy by a former student of Ciara. Right from initial contact all my questions were answered in a polite and professional manner. The training itself was great, I really like the manual they use and the time they take to answer any questions thoroughly. Ciara and Jen both have extensive knowledge in Microblading and aesthetics. I love how they offer continuous and ongoing support to their students after graduation. Since I graduated I have successfully opened my own studio and made a dream come true.

 

Thanks ladies!

My experience with Ciara was nothing short of amazing. I was obviously nervous going into a new field (I’ve had the same job in the same field for over 10 years) but she made me so excited to try something new! I had no previous experience just a total infatuation with all things beauty and she really helped me to understand all the fundamentals, client interaction, the works. 

 

The class I took was one on one which was amazing for me to be able to comprehend all the materials. When it came time to actually microblade the clients she was so thorough. It was so helpful to be able to assist and watch her first before I did my own clients. 

 

Although is was scary to take the leap to try something new, I’m so happy I did it! I would highly recommend Ciara to anyone looking to take this fabulous leap!

I have had the pleasure of training with Jennifer for a few different PMU services and let me tell you she is absolutely AMAZING. She is genuinely in it to help you succeed in this industry! 

She is always there to answer any questions for me (day or night). She is very educated in this Industry.  I 100% would recommend Jennifer to anyone thinking of getting into the permanent makeup industry. If you are one of the lucky ones to be trained by her, know that you won’t be left high and dry after your training. She is ALWAYS there to help!

You won’t regret it 🖤
