Your Amazing Brows Are Now Loading...
Pixelate PMU is a new and upcoming permanent Make up Salon here in Lexington, looking to disrupt the industry with alternative solutions to micro-blading and other methods. You can find out more about here here at https://www.pixelatepmu.com/ to learn about Samantha and her trendy techniques.
We found out about this new business as one of our site moderators went out for her monthly hair salon visit and saw some Pixelate PMU business cards laying out at the entrance of the building. She said it was the pink and purple color that really caught here eyes, almost identical to the colors in the photo header to this blog post.
We took the time to reach out to the business and got talking with Samantha Clark the owner and operator of this tantalizing new venture. She has only been open for a few months but those first few months have proven to be some of the hardest for this budding entrepreneur. She is still working to get her business name established among the already established permanent makeup salons in the area.
To really get a better idea of what Pixelate PMU is we got with Samantha to site with here in her Salon to really feel the space and her vision.
So, What Is Pixelate PMU?
Pixelate PMU is a permanent makeup clinic that currently specializes in eyebrow services. Currently, Ombré brows, Nano Shading, and Combination brows make up the service menu. Permanent makeup is essentially the implantation of pigment within the skin to mimic the look of makeup. A popular term is "microblading", which refers to a hand tool and a "blade" made out of tiny needles but another method of implanting the pigment is using a permanent makeup machine. Using this method can be less traumatic to the skin and can produce better and longer-lasting results for skin types that produce more oil.
Why Did You Start This Business?
After having my own brows microbladed in 2017, I told myself if I ever had a chance to learn how to do it, I would take the leap. The opportunity eventually came around and I've been learning about the permanent makeup industry and different techniques since my initial training. Permanent makeup is an art form and I love the challenge of becoming a better artist each day. Starting Pixelate PMU allowed me full control of my growth, my customer experience, and the services I want to offer.
What Is Your Vision?
Other than repeatedly creating beautiful work, I want to take in all of the knowledge I absolutely can and share it with other people interested in starting a career in permanent makeup. One of the most difficult parts of being a new artist is gaining the confidence to perform services and building trust with potential clients so that they do eventually convert to customers. I want to provide training that addresses both of those issues so that everyone involved benefits.
What Makes You Different
I plan to bring other permanent makeup/paramedical services outside of brows, lips, and eyes to Lexington, KY, and as a black woman with a deeper skin tone, I feel it is important to have artists that represent those clients and specialize in such skin tones.
