Q: How many other students will I be training with?
A: Depending on the popularity and timing of the course you may be training with 1-3 other students. Class sizes are small to ensure one-on-one instruction for optimum training results. Courses do not start unless we have two fully registered and paid students per course date.
Q: How often are training courses held?
A: Training courses are held periodically throughout the year. There are several types of training courses available for each individual student.
Q: What kind of certification do I receive when I complete the training course?
A: After completing one of our Cosmetic courses (Essential, Intensive), you will receive a Comprehensive Cosmetic Certification. You can only take the Elite and Medical courses after completing the Essential or Intensive course. Be aware that a certification from Haute Makeup® is not a substitution for all necessary public health legislation or business licenses. Each county/state/country may have differing health laws related to permanent and semipermanent make-up. Always be aware of the rules in your district.

Q: What is the difference between the Essential (6 days) and the Intensive (3 days)?
A: The course are practically similar as they all feature the Comprehensive Cosmetic Certification, however the course length differs for each type of student. Any student with no permanent makeup experience should take the Essential. Permanent make-up artists with more than 3 years of active experience should take the Intensive.

A: The Elite training course is for fully-trained Hauticians® who have completed their Essential or Intensive training course.
