What are the benefits of training with me?
I have been offering permanent make-up treatments for the past 15 years and training students in the art of permanent make-up for the past 9 years.
I am an independent trainer with teaching qualifications and experience of working and teaching in this industry. I am able to adapt my teaching methods to your learning style and this ensures that you leave the course knowledgeable and feeling confident and ready to work on your own. I ensure that you train on an adequate number of clients for eyebrow treatments, eyeliner treatments and lip treatments so that your clients receive a professional treatment from the very beginning.
My training courses follow the National Occupational Standards set out by HABIA and are validated by Holistic Services Insurance and accredited with ABT Associated Beauty Therapists. Insurance cover is available from both companies for my courses.
Training dates are booked by individual arrangement.
Who will benefit from these courses
My courses are suitable for beauticians who wish to extend their range of specialist services or for someone looking for a career change. You will leave with everything you need to become a professional permanent make-up specialist.
The training academy is situated close to Biggleswade in Bedfordshire. It has ample private parking and for those who live too far to travel every day there is very reasonably priced local B&B. The nearest railway station is Biggleswade.

Brilliant training with Sonia for SPMU. Very relaxed teaching and I came away feeling very confident and knowledgeable. Thank you. Maria. 2015
I have recently completed my SPMU training with Sonia and couldn’t recommend her enough! Sonia is very professional, takes great pride in her work and is clearly passionate about what she does. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and felt comfortable and relaxed with Sonia. After completing the training I was 100% confident to carry out treatments on my own and Sonia is always on hand if I need to ask her anything. Thanks so much. Emma 2015
I have attended quite a number of training courses over the past few years and I have to say that the SPMU training with Sonia was outstanding. I learned at a pace suitable for me with an appropriate balance of theory and hands on practical with real clients. Sonia is knowledgeable, skilled and approachable. The support I was able to receive afterwards was so useful. I’m so glad I chose Sonia. G.K. 2015
I have just completed my 4 day training with Sonia for Semi Permanent Make-up. I researched my training in depth and looked into a few big companies offering this training in London and Liverpool but was instantly drawn to Sonia’s passion for Semi Permanent Make-up. I am a hairdresser by trade and was worried that I would find the transition to this treatment difficult but Sonia made me feel comfortable straight away. The training centre was bright and welcoming, easy to get to and had plenty of onsite parking. Sonia presented me with an in-depth manual (my bible) covering every question I might have had and she constantly checked my learning and made sure I was comfortable and understood every step. Her demonstration of techniques was very clear and precise which made it easy to follow. Sonia was very easy to talk to and she had a wealth of knowledge to share when I bombarded her with my questions. Her teaching was very thorough and covered every aspect of this industry. She made sure I had a wide range of clients available to develop my consultation skills and practical techniques on. What I really enjoyed was the opportunity I was given to develop my techniques independently but under Sonia’s watchful eye. This allowed me to develop my practical skills and helped me gain confidence. I now have the confidence to continue with my case studies, using a fully comprehensive kit that Sonia recommended and I am looking forward to working within the SPMU industry. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Sonia. Tara 2015
