Who the Training Is For

The Luxe Henna Brow Training is designed for both seasoned cosmetic artists and students new to the world of Henna. The intimate and interactive course setting was created for certified estheticians who are passionate about learning how to personalize permanent makeup solutions for each of their clients, and who want to refine their techniques. By building a steady foundation of the knowledge, practices and solutions of the Henna Brow procedure, students will have the opportunity to develop their skills and lay the groundwork for a successful career in the art of semi-permanent makeup. 

Students participating in the course must be licensed estheticians and/or cosmetologists as the Luxe Henna Brows service include waxing and hair removal, which require proper certifications.

Courtney's Experience

Courtney has trained several estheticians in the art of brow design and esthetic services. As the lead esthetician at Sanctuary Spa in Houston, before leaving to launch her own cosmetic tattoo artistry studio, Her Velvet Hand, she trained every esthetician employed at the spa during that time. In addition, she has led special training events for brow shaping and waxing at the Aveda Institute. 

Having trained with some of the industry’s most esteemed permanent and semi-permanent makeup artists and estheticians in the U.S., Europe and Canada — in addition to completing the Hennatician Trainer Certification Course with Founder Nicole Jane of Henna Brow Australia — Courtney is a renowned esthetic artist with a passion for sharing her years of skill development with her students.

Certificate of Completion

Students of the course should note that the State of Texas does not regulate Henna or require certifications to provide the service. Completion of HVH’s Luxe Henna Brow Training does not technically certify practitioners. It provides licensed estheticians with thorough education, in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience so they can confidently provide Henna Brow services to their clients.
