The American Institute of Permanent Beauty & Rejuvenation is a leading Permanent Cosmetic educational organization,  founded by nationally distinguished Karin Downes. One of nation's foremost experts in the field, her expertise as a Permanent Cosmetic educator has made her training highly sought-after.

Dear future students:
Thank you for taking an interest in the exciting and lucrative Permanent Cosmetic field. It has been a very exciting and rewarding field for me, so I am looking forward to starting you on the path to a wonderful future in Permanent Cosmetics. There is much that you can achieve in this field, limited only by your imagination and desires.

Each class has comprehensive Theory training, as well as hands-on experience and offers students the opportunity to be able to advance to the next level of training in the field.

Classes are scheduled by appointment and are limited to only five students for Theory and one student per trainer for the hands-on portion. Since size is so limited, a non-refundable pre-payment of tuition is necessary to reserve your class space. Once your registration and tuition is received, you will be sent the instruction manual, which will help you in preparing for class.

Once you complete the class you will receive a certificate of completion as well as technical phone and e-mail support and will be able to order supplies directly from distributors.

Register early to ensure your class of choice. Classes offered are listed below:
