Our Path to Permanent
Julie Michaud, Prettyology’s Founder and Lead Instructor, is all about teaching women how to accentuate their true natural beauty. She founded her first makeup studio in 1997 after encountering women with drawers full of makeup and tools that they didn’t know how to use and others who weren’t quite sure how to work around medical issues like cancer, alopecia, trichotillomania or Bell’s palsy. She trained in and started performing micropigmentation (permanent makeup) in 2002 and has been a leader in the field ever since. After 25 years in the industry she opened Prettyology as Boston’s first “beauty lab,” now one of the largest micropigmentation centers in the country.
Julie opened the Prettyology Micropigmentation Academy after recognizing that many practitioners weren’t getting the foundational or hands-on experience that they needed to perform these services competently, confidently and successfully. She felt compelled to not only practice micropigmentation, but to also teach to ensure that proper knowledge and techniques are flourishing.
