Since then, I have never looked back! When up and coming permanent makeup artists ask me the difference between Nouveau Contour devices and other devices and which they should purchase, I tell them it is a no brainer and to only use Nouveau Contour! My analogy is that Nouveau Contour devices are like driving a Rolls Royce vs. a Volkswagon.Both get the job done but, the Nouveau Contour devices are a definite luxury in machines and make your job so much easier and smoother. Also, the different needle configurations are amazing for all types of permanent makeup work and are so easy to use. Nouveau Contour is one of the best investments I have made into my career!”To learn more about Amy visit her website www.amykernahan.com or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

July Tips and Technique:
Chemo Therapy and permanent make-up
If your client is diagnosed with cancer and the chemo therapy has not been started yet, it is best to advise to do the permanent make-up for the brows and eyeliners before the chemo therapy starts. Keep the permanent make-up subtle and only use a hair stroke technique for the brows, because the natural hair will fall out and fully colored brows do not look natural without natural hair.
Once the therapy has started, permanent make-up is not permitted, as the resistance of the body is very low and the risk of infection or inflammation is high. During the chemo therapy your client will probably lose all hair, first on the head and later also the brows and lashes. Your client will not only feel physically bad, but also mentally challenged, because all natural accents on her face disappear. When the permanent make-up is done before the chemo therapy, she still will feel feminine.
If your client wants permanent make-up after the chemo therapy, always ask the permission of the doctor. The recovery time after chemo differs per person and you may not take the risk to perform the treatment too soon.
