Pam Edmonson, Permanent Makeup Artist began her second and whole new career at the age of 46. She has been providing permanent make-up services in the Zephyrhills area since May of 2011.
She became a licensed cosmetologist in October of 2009 and works at All About You Salon & Day spa of Zephyrhills. The permanent makeup services are performed on the spa side of the salon.
Pam studied at the World Renowned Boca Ta-2 School for Permanent Makeup where students come from all across the country. Her teacher was Joyce Cirasuola, a master permanent makeup artist with more than 30 years experience.
“I’m very artistic and a bit of a perfectionist,” says Pam. “I started focusing on permanent makeup when some of my salon clients lost their eyebrows due to medical treatments. Other clients were complaining they didn’t have time to apply makeup every morning before leaving their home.”
“The most important thing about permanent makeup is how it makes my clients feel,” says Pam. “It is so rewarding to me personally knowing how the clients are so happy and how they all say they wish they would have done it sooner.”
Pam specialty is eyebrows and eyeliner but also does lips and micro needling. “My favorite procedure it the eyebrows” says Pam. “It can make a woman look 10 years younger simply by doing her eyebrows because eyebrows frame the face.”
Eyebrows look natural when Pam is finished. They’re not merely a tattooed line. She adds hair strokes. “It takes longer to do it this way, but the results are worth it,” says Pam. “I want to take my time to do it well because the difference is in the details. I’m very detail oriented.”
The majority of her business comes to her by word of mouth from satisfied customers. “I’m a people person,” says Pam. “I hug my customers. My work is very rewarding. I get excited helping my customers to look and feel better.” It takes about an hour to do eyebrows or eyeliner. Lips and micro needling take longer depending on the situation. The procedures are painless for the most part. She is very meticulous about the numbing to be sure her customers are comfortable and feel nodiscomfort.
She also makes sure that her clients understand what they need to do in the aftercare process to get the best results from their procedure. She automatically schedules a touch up 4 weeks following the initial procedure to make sure how it healed and touch up whatever is necessary. It is like putting the icing on the cake. “Everyone’s skin is different” says Pam. “This is where experience really pays off.”
Pam offers a free consultation. Permanent makeup may not be for everyone. She wants them to see plenty of before and after pictures, answer their questions and discuss all of their concerns before setting up an appointment.
Pam’s business number is her cell phone. She wants to be sure her customers can get in touch with her easily. “I also attend additional education at every opportunity,” says Pam. “I want to stay on top of new advances and techniques that can benefit my customers.”
She is currently offering a brow-liner combo for $550 through July 2014. “My prices are less than most other permanent makeup artists in the Tampa area,” says Pam.
