Permanent Makeup sometimes referred to as Micropigmentation, is a Tattoo. The skin is penetrated in order for the implantation of pigment to occur. Permanent makeup should enhance your natural features, without giving a "made-up" look. Topical makeup trends change from season to season, but having thick lashes and defined brows and lips will never go out of style. This is a fast-growing and popular method for enhancing personal beauty.

We are excited to offer a 100-hour Beginners Fundamental Permanent Cosmetic and Microblading training course with a one-year apprenticeship program also available. The cost of the apprenticeship is not included in the class prices. With this training, we equip you with everything you need to be successful in the permanent cosmetic industry.

I received my Permanent Cosmetic Eyebrow Microblading training at “Jeanette Wirz Permanent Cosmetic Academy and Studio" from Jennifer Wilken. The entire experience was seamless and made me feel as though I was on my destined path. Jeanette allowed me time to ask all the questions I needed before I even signed up for the class. Once I started the course Jennifer was supportive, knowledgeable, and ahead of the trends. She provided me with customized instruction and constructive feedback. I was beyond pleased with the curriculum and decided to continue with these women through my apprenticeship.  I would encourage anyone considering this profession to choose Jennifer Wilken as there instructor, you will also be gaining a mentor.   Maggie 2020


I walked away from Permanent Makeup/Micropigmentation Training at Jeanette Wirz Permanent Cosmetics with a full understanding of the fundamentals of cosmetic tattooing. The comprehensive curriculum covered everything from proper sanitation, tattoo techniques to business marketing. The small class sizes and schedule flexibility created an optimal learning environment. My instructor, Jennifer Wilken, was patient and thorough. Within 24 hours I was working with live models and by the end of the week, I had the confidence and tools to add permanent cosmetics to my service offerings. Questions were not only answered during class but post instruction as well. The staff is delightful, supportive, and want their students to succeed. I truly believe I received the best training available in the region.

Jeanette’s apprenticeship program was and continues to be beyond exceptional. Her techniques and style of teaching made my year of education in Permanent makeup worth every mile I drove to see her. She has a well-rounded program that teaches everything from color theory and brow mapping to artistry. She had passed on her years of experience and expertise to me that I will be able to carry on into my own Permanent Makeup carrier. As I have begun on my own she has continued to serve as my mentor and Permanent Makeup “guru”. There is not a question I ask that she does not have an answer for. I will also continue furthering my education with her as she adds on continuing courses as well. Thank you, Jeanette, for your dedication to your craft and students.
