Aesthetics By Karen Marlise DBA Tampa Bay Laser Hair Removal

Hi, I am Karen Marlise . . .I am the best in the business of permanent cosmetic makeup for over 30 years. I am a graduate of two major permanent makeup colleges and have trained in every area of permanent cosmetic makeup. I have 300 hours certification in permanent cosmetic makeup from California in 1993. Then when I moved to Florida I kept traveling to Texas to one of the other top permanent cosmetic makeup colleges to complete my training in all areas of permanent cosmetic makeup. I trained in scar camouflage, creating nipples, hair replication, permanent cosmetic makeup correction, designer permanent eyeliner, mucosal eyeliner, French eyeliner, stretch mark camouflage and revisions to name a few. I done years of helping men camouflage balding with hair replication. It takes hours of creating countless tiny dots blended with multiple colors to match the men’s hair.  There is a great technique I trained in for camouflaging stretch marks as well.  There are not any permanent cosmetic artists in Tampa Bay that have as many years as I do or the amount of training from certified top permanent cosmetic colleges. If you are seeking the true master permanent makeup artist in Tampa Bay area that is Karen Marlise Cowles.

If you have done your homework and researched the educational requirements that The State of Florida expects from permanent hair removal & medical electrolysis practitioners (including: laser hair removal and permanent hair reduction specialists, laser hair removal safety officers, permanent cosmetic makeup artists & laser techs) you will find I have every license and training required by The State of Florida to provide you with the safest aesthetic services available in the Tampa Bay area. In fact, I have more education than is actually required – that, coupled with my many years of experience, is why I am the best at what I do . . . I have just moved to 10701 Village Green Ave, Seminole FL 33772

I have been in the beauty business all of my professional life.

I truly love my work and throughout the years I have been certified in every area of beauty possible.

I started as a Cosmetologist in 1982 and as time has gone on I have expanded my training. I learned early the best guarantee that you will always be working is be the best at what ever you do. So that has been my mission to be the best and give my clients everything I can possibly do regarding my work.

I am a great permanent cosmetic artist. I started by going to a permanent cosmetic college in southern California in 1993. It was a 300 hour certification and from the day I could I performed permanent makeup on every person possible while at the school. At the time I was living in Alaska and knew I better be good and know everything needed before going home. The owner of the school put his 25 year old daughter to teaching me daily the whole time I was there because I told them I was leaving if I wasn’t coming away with true training. The owner made sure that happened.

At the electrologist school I went to I was lucky to have a 24 year experienced transgendered electrologist who came in daily for cheap work done by students. I made a deal with the electrologist to work on her at lease 3 hours per day if she would teach me everything she knew and she did. She wanted to be cured and be sure not to damage her skin so it was important for her to teach me well. She is the reason I am a great electrologist. She taught me every trick of the trade to be fast and perfect.

Anyway, I don’t want a big business or flip clients like a hamburger. I want to be known as a place where you will receive a fair, honest, quality service you feel happy about after it is done. I work very hard to make sure that happens. I work with a great doctor and we both know the business of caring for people. I have many clients I have had a long term relationship with since I started business in Florida almost twelve years ago. People that know me know I care and I give my best! I hope I get a chance to meet you and help you.

2nd Place Winner – International Contest of Masters in Permanent Cosmetics Expo

The International Contest of Masters in Permanent Cosmetics Expo was held in Dallas, Texas in October of 2007 where Karen competed among international masters in permanent cosmetics. Karen took 2nd place among the talented competitors and looks forward to next years competition.

Karen Marlise selected as local expert in St. Petersburg, Florida

Karen Marlise was selected by Expertvillage as the local expert in permanent cosmetic’s in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the Tampa Bay area as a result of extensive research by Expertvillage  to find the best in the field of permanent cosmetics in the Tampa Bay area. What the village experts found was an extensive list of training and credentials on Karen not only on her site but on various other sites on the web. Karen was invited to be listed as their permanent cosmetic expert on the nationally reviewed website where she will be demonstrating the master skills of permanent cosmetics as well as electrology. That was years ago before educational videos took off. It was primitive filming compared to filming today. Karen was one of the first without rehearsal and any idea of what type of setting she was walking into. A warehouse type setting with cameras using a fold out table and nothing else. She was asked to say everything in 10 second clips .Karen’s video demonstration and techniques on permanent cosmetics and electrology techniques is scheduled to be filmed March 10, 2008
