⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Excellent course would recommend!

I found this really thorough and informative. It covered a lot more than I was expecting and I’m now much clearer on needle choice. I’m two years into my PMU career and I can finally say I know what a bug pin is and taper lengths mean! 

The pace was good and the content was relevant and clearly explained. A lot was covered. Great course, a must for any PMU artist. Thank you ladies!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Awesome!!

It's so refreshing to complete a course and feel 100% satisfied with the information you receive. Also it feels amazing to be able to apply all of the knowledge to my procedures. After completing the pointilism course, I couldn't wait to do another course with Halcyon. Such refreshing, easy to learn information from Stephanie and Kelly. Thank you so much ladies for increasing my knowledge on needles and machines, whilst making it easy to follow with great videos and pdf's for downloading.

Thanks again, I loved this course.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fabulous!

I’ve been doing PMU for 5 years and I still had too many questions 😕

I have wanted to make my work as simple as possible without feeling I had to keep changing technique to get a good result. I constantly bought new machines and pigments hoping to get the results I was looking for.   But what I needed was better education!

Then I heard of Halcyon I bought the  ‘Pointillism’ course which is now going to be the way I fill my shaded brows.  This is a technique every PMU artist needs to know.

After doing ‘needles and more’ course I can now confidently choose the correct needle and know what the result will be. Or look at any skin type and know what I need to choose, both needle and pigment type. The combined amazing knowledge I’ve gained from  Stephanie and Kelly in these online courses has lifted my confidence and results and that’s a great feeling after all this time!! 

These courses are amazing value and I can’t recommend them highly enough .. I’ll be doing more

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fantastic

I now feel confident in picking and choosing the right needle for my machine work. I am a year into PMU and still felt in the dark but was too afraid to ask in some social media groups. Thanks ladies!
