Marion Kay Institute

Due to Rima expecting her first baby, we have decided to take a break from Beginner training. If you would like to be contacted when we decide to resume classes, please leave a message here.

From Rima:   

As I watch my son rapidly grow over the past few months, I've come to realize how precious time is with him. I would like nothing more than to work full time, teach on my days off and still be present for my family but I must accept that that is unattainable. Since he will be my only child, I want to be there for him as much as I can; therefore I must sacrifice something. The time we devote to preparing and teaching a detailed and thorough curriculum takes multiple weeks and unfortunately after much painful deliberation, is more than I can spare at the present time. Permanent makeup is my passion and I love teaching and sharing the knowledge we've acquired. But it will always be there for me whereas his years as an infant are fleeting... I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you all can understand. Thank you.  

Concerning Advanced training, we will still teach individuals who are already certified/licensed in permanent makeup. Please leave a message here with what you would like to learn and we will create a customized private training curriculum with either Rima or Marion.
