JENN BOYD

LECTURE – INSPIRATIONAL BUSINESS

After taking her first PMU course in 2015, Jenn Boyd quickly became a talented and respected artist, educator and entrepreneur. With tireless dedication to her craft and the utilization of the Law of Attraction, she took her small beauty business and built an empire in just a couple years. Starting with a small room at the back of her salon, she realized quickly that the growth of her business was calling her to bigger and better things. With an influx of clients and students, more space was a necessity. In 2017, just shy of two years in the industry, Jenn opened her 2000 square foot facility in Santa Clarita, CA. Her dream of owning her own studio with space to service clients, educate new artists and distribute the best PMU and beauty products had come to fruition.

Only 6 months after opening Jenn Boyd Ink Permanent Makeup Studio and Academy, Jenn introduced her own line of microblading blades and tools. Brow Slayer® blades soon became the favorite of artists worldwide. Her online store now includes other well known brands such as Skinful Beauty®, Zensa, After Inked®, Keratin Lash Infusion™ and a range of brow products coming soon called Browcraft™. One of her proudest moments was being selected by LI Pigments to create her own range of colors that will release in early 2020.

As for her future endeavors, Jenn plans to grow her business by continuing to educate and mentor, develop new and exciting products and start a business development course that includes the Law of Attraction, social media and branding education.

NHUNG PHAN

LIVE DEMO – LUMINOUS LIPS

Nhung Phan started out as a Make-up Instructor for 10 years with one hope giving her customers a flawless beauty. While working as a Make-up Instructor, she discovered her fulfilling for Beauty and operated as a PMU artist for over 9 years now.

Nhung has trained with various leading Masters from Europe who have helped her excel her skills and techniques, most importantly searching for her own unique style. She is known for her soft and natural looks that results in her masterpieces such as: Dazzle Brows™, Luminous Eyeliner™, and Luscious Lips™.

Nhung’s work ethic, devotion and professionalism gained her love and support among her colleagues in the PMU field as well as wide group of satisfied clients. Thirsting for knowledge and thriving for greatness, Nhung never stops learning and improving herself. She has mastered her own techniques of creating hyper realistic eyebrows that retains 90% of color and especially no scabbing. Nhung has named her technique Sandy Brows™, emphasizing on the softness and crispiness of the pixelated powdery looks. Another technique to top with Sandy Brows™ is Satori Technique™ where she invented her own hair patterns and strokes to create hyperrealism eyebrows with machine. This is by far the best technique to create soft hair strokes and retains amazing results.

Her two other significant techniques are Luminous Lips™ and ‘Amore Eyeliner™ where she translates make-up style into PMU. Luminous Lips™ focuses on a soft natural color that appears as 3D effects transitioning from dark on the inner to light on the outer. Amore Eyeliner™ is more about color transitions that gives a subtle and discreet look blended with pixelated ‘dusts’ that adds definition to the eyes.

These incredible techniques help to complement, enhance one’s look and save a lot of troubles for those who don’t wear make up daily.

“The only way to get on top is never be satisfied with your own results”, says Nhung. This is her motto that keeps her driven and focused.
