Meet Your Educator

Shannon Housley

After spending more than a decade in the financial publishing industry as a copywriter and marketing strategist, I was burned out from Corporate America.


I felt I was missing out on my TRUE PURPOSE. I knew I wanted to do something to make people feel GOOD… feel confident… and to spread happiness to other women. That’s when I decided to take my first microblading course. I remember I was so nervous about making the leap to something so different from my existing career. But in my gut, I felt I was on the right path.


After I obtained my microblading certificate, I opened Housley Institute in 2019 as a way to help women and men who have suffered hair or pigment loss—either from age, surgery, accidents, chemotherapy, or disorders such as alopecia.


I then went on to obtain my 100-hour 3D Areola Tattooing and Scar Camouflage certification… as well as receive additional certification in powder brows, lip blush, permanent eyeliner, hyper-realistic nipples, shadow liner, Li-FT tattoo removal, and the nano brow technique. I then completed advanced training in scar camouflage for skin graft scars, burn scars, surgical scars, and self-harm scars.


We are in our 5th year of providing these amazing, life-changing services to our clients and patients.


I can’t wait to share my knowledge that I’ve learned through training and performing thousands of PMU sessions. I absolutely love permanent makeup coaching and training and can’t wait to meet you on the first day of class!
