Instructor: Shanan Zickefoose
Cost: $15,500. We are not able to offer in house financial aid at this time. Because Shanan is a registered nurse, she has private lenders that she secured for special financing for the medical procedures in our office. Our private lender has agreed to offer Shanan's students financing for our program.
Supplies & Products: Included and anything in your student kit is yours to keep after the class. 
Students: Minimum of 3 required, but no more than 4. Shanan focuses on small classes to provide the maximum amount of oversight during your training. Shanan has taught TRAIN THE TRAINER since March 2017, and she aligns with what she teaches in this program; smaller courses are best for students, models, and the instructor.  
Clinical Procedures Required: 18. We will help advertise but it is still your responsibility to provide all models.
Disclaimer: According to the Medical Micropigmentation laws for Oklahoma, you MUST work IN a doctor’s office (M.D., D.O. or D.D.S) when you perform permanent makeup and the physician must be currently practicing. The doctor cannot “vouch for you” to work at a location he/she is not working at.

Potential students: 

Shanan truly believes in providing a very comprehensive education platform and she focuses on teaching her initial students in a beginners' fundamental program, this is not an intermediate or advanced program. Many students are calling looking for fundamental training that includes very advanced techniques such as: scar work, areola training, tattoo lightening and removal, scalp micro pigmentation, and medical procedures which requires a minimal of an RN license such as medical microneedling training and they desire all of this during a fast tracked fundamentals course. This three month program is designed to meet the basic state requirements for state testing. 


To explain better, we as consumers typically do not desire to have surgery from a new graduate from medical school. The surgeons are specialists that have many years of working with advanced training before they perform surgery. While permanent makeup is not the same as medical school, please consider there is advanced training in every field and the expertise must be respected. Since 2006, Shanan has trained all over the United States over the as well as received her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. Like her colleagues, she focused on mastering the art of permanent makeup, such as brows, eyeliner and lips for over six years before moving on to advanced training. Scars, scalp work, and areola are very advanced work and they are very unpredictable procedures. To be respectful of those who have learned before us, please do not enter this industry to rush towards advanced work. There are steps towards learning advanced techniques. 


Shanan offers all of her students additional training after graduation, which can include intermediate and advanced techniques. These are scheduled in advance for the current intermediate and advanced training fee rate. 

As a courtesy, Shanan provides many opportunities to support the graduate fundamental students' education. She allows them to occasionally schedule times to shadow her; and when needed, she provides opportunities to work on live models after graduation. This information is in the student trainer agreement contract.
