In this class, you'll learn one of MLA's signature looks: the hairstroke + shading combination brows, known as Combo Brows.

These are the same techniques used by our artists everyday in our studio—we hold nothing back and reveal the secrets to creating the beautiful brows we share everyday on our popular Instagram.

This class is for working PMU artists and eager students already familiar with the fundamentals of permanent makeup, ready to learn the MLA method for combining hairstroke microblading methods with machine shading.

Hands on Experience in a Working Permanent Makeup Studio

You will work side-by-side with Lindsey Ta's team of working microblading artists. This is an experience like no other! You will spend your time at our studio, where real clients come into work with our busy team, not in a rented auditorium.

On day 1, you'll learn our techniques for Combo step-by-step, then practice on synthetic skin. You'll learn exact stroke placement and how exactly to shade to avoid damaging the skin and to blend perfectly with the client's natural hair.

On day 2, you'll perform the technique with a live model, under the close supervision of the MLA team of certified instructors and working artists.

Who Is This Class For?

Working artists and previous MLA students welcome! This class is for those with prior PMU knowledge, either from a prior permanent makeup class or from experience working in PMU. (Those with no PMU experience will prefer our Permanent Makeup Fundamentals class). The ability to work with a microblade or PMU device and a thorough understanding of PMU fundamentals are essential for getting the most out of this class. This class will NOT teach you how to use the PMU device or microblade. If you need that training, we suggest the Art of Microblading.

This class is open to all levels of PMU artists, but is not for beginners. We will NOT be going into any theory or how to use your tools. We will be laser-focused on the Combo Brows technique only.
