PMU/microblading training at Vine was amazing! Dawn was able to pack in so much important information in 5 days. I loved the pace and flow of information with the amount of hands on work and her demos on live models. Can’t wait to take all the advanced classes. Highlyyyyy recommend!! If you’re on the fence it’s absolutely worth the investment.

I went to Vine Academy for the full fundamentals course learning how to tattoo basic lips, eyeliner, fusion brows, and microblading. I love how Dawn not only teaches how to work on the skin, but teaches you what’s going on with the skin in every area you’re learning about. Dawn is very direct, honest, and funny. Will definitely be returning for more classes as I progress!

I chose these classes because it looked like the most professional and supportive in the area-and I was not wrong! Dawn seems to genuinely care about her the learning and success of her students. She gives honest feedback, and is there even after classes for support. Loved watching her do live demos. The studio was beautiful! Will definitely be seeking further classes from Dawn!
