Don't Be scammed!
Licensed first...then's why

microblading school norfolk.png

Virginia DPOR regulations require anyone who is looking to offer Microblading, Ombre, or Shading have a Permanent Makeup License.


Spending $2-3,000 on a certification does not allow you to legally offer Microblading or Permanent Makeup, in Virginia.  Investing in your license first, then continuing your education with certifications is the smartest route if you're serious about success in this industry.


Don't be fooled by traveling brands, or local artists without the proper license in Virginia setting up in hotels, and salons.


You will not have a license after taking those classes, and will still have to invest even more to legally offer Microblading, powder brows, ombre brows,  brow tattoo or permanent makeup services. 


Get Licensed...Then Certified. Know the Laws in Virginia. And Don't Be Scammed!
