The introductory online course portiton goes over the theory and education for permanent makeup brows using a machine (digital microblading). The online course is only for PHASE #1 at our academy. We created an online portion for our Fundamental 3D Machine Brow Course so that you can learn at your own pace at home. Once you purchase this bundle, you will have access to the online course for 60 days.

Hayley Shortridge-Gabriel is highly respected for her Hair Stroke and Powdered Brow combo technique that took her years to perfect! She is here to give you the tools you need to succeed. This is an incredible time to get into the permanent makeup industry. With the popularity of eyebrows this industry has exploded.

You will not be certified in permanent makeup with just the online portion. You must complete PHASE #2 to receive your certificate. During PHASE #2 you will have hands-on training at our studio in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Owner / Artist / Certified Trainer 


Being raised in the arts by her father, Stephen Shortridge, a nationally acclaimed artist, Hayley Shortridge-Gabriel followed in her father’s footsteps and became a professional artist in 2005 selling her fine art in galleries from California to Florida.

Hoping to offer her creativity beyond the traditional canvas she decided to apply her skills in fine art to the human canvas and that’s when her business True Life Canvas was formed. Hayley received her certification in permanent cosmetics from Permanent Cosmetique International based in San Francisco, California established in 1989.

Whether Hayley is working with a person or a canvas each application is executed with precision and detail. Regardless of the application, colors are hand picked and blended to achieve the perfect shade the client is looking for.
