  • My experience with Linda and her staff was excellent

    My experience with Linda and her staff was excellent. They were very sympathetic to my breast cancer journey as well as caring and understanding. Respectful to my thoughts and wishes with the areola tattooing. The end result made me feel normal and whole again more like a woman, I could look in the mirror and not see my scars so much. Very thankful. – Sheila, 2016

  • I’m thrilled with the results

    Linda did my original brows and now has added the brow hair strokes. I’m thrilled with the results. Linda is very professional and truly cares about her client’s comfort and total satisfaction. – Cynthia, 2016

  • Linda is so kind and patient.

    Linda is so kind and patient. She takes her time to make sure you are satisfied 100%. Doing this has really helped my self-esteem and cut down on my daily routine. – Jennifer, 2016

  • I totally trust Elegant Permanent Cosmetics

    I had my areola’s done and love the way they turned out. I totally trust Elegant Permanent Cosmetics. – Brenda, 2016

  • Tomorrow I will wake up feeling complete again

    Don’t wait 10 years like I did! I feel like my brows are as beautiful as they were in my teens. Drawing them on everyday sometimes twice (sweating them off or wiping off with a towel accidentally). Tomorrow I will wake up feeling complete again. I can’t wait to enjoy life and not worry about my eyebrows anymore... Thank you Linda you are truly an artist.
    Sincerely – Denise, 2016

  • They are excellent

    It is always exciting to have other professionals ask “Who did your eyebrows? They are excellent." I tell them Elegant Permanent Cosmetics.
