Alesya Mulholland, RN, CPCP

Founder of Accent Beauty Academy, LLC

Alesya has a passion for permanent makeup and teaching.  In addition to starting Accent Beauty Academy, she has a master’s degree in teaching, is a licensed registered nurse, licensed esthetician and a legally certified Colorado permanent makeup artist.

As a second generation esthetician and permanent cosmetic artist, she loves the beauty industry. Starting her nursing career as a cosmetic injector Alesya realized she could better help women through permanent makeup. In Colorado you must have an esthetician or cosmetologist license, so it was off to school. Once licensed as an esthetician it was time to complete the required 132 Hour fundamentals course.

This simply confirmed in her mind she had made the correct decision to pursue her dreams and to continue with extensive and ongoing training from the best programs around the world. You can see just some of her personal certifications and trainings below. The journey to improve her personal skills is driven by a deep desire to provide the finest in permanent makeup services.  She considers herself  fortunate to be able to marry her passion for permanent makeup with her love of teaching.  Out of those, Accent Beauty Academy, LLC was born. Her journey never ends by, continuing to learn and practice the best techniques from around the world, and sharing that knowledge with her students. Only through the success of her students can Accent Beauty Academy be truly successful.

 

PhiAcademy Bold Brows

Microblading Master Trainer

Looking to learn the art of microblading Alesya turned to PhiAcademy – the world leader in microblading training. This began a multiple year process.

Starting off as a microblading student by taking the basic course she became a certified PhiBrows Artist. That was back when Branko Babic personally reviewed a students work and gave the final OK.

Continuing onwards, improving her game by taking the Perfection training (this happens when your clients “like” your microblading work, but you know you can do better).  You train and get additional feedback from a Master trainer to take you to the next level.

Her studies and microblading practice continued, as the months passed, the quality of her eyebrow work was recognized by PhiAcademy. A select group of Master Artists reviewed her work and awarded her the PhiBrows Royal Artist title.

Never one to be satisfied, she resolved to learn even more. About that time, European Grand Master Mensura Hodzic developed the hyper realistic microblading pattern called “Bold Brows”.  Falling head over heels for this fuller and realistic technique, she enrolled in the Bold Brows Perfection training with Grand Master Mensura to become a certified Bold Brows Artist.

The practice continued with even more practice and helping to assist Masters teach live trainings until she was recognized again by PhiAcademy and became the first Bold Brows Master Artist and Trainer in the United States.

Alesya brings this high level of skill in microblading to each of her students.

Alesya & Grand Master Otchenash 

Alesya with Sviatoslav Otchenash the founder of AcademyS

Former AcademyS – Permanent Makeup Master

Microblading alone was not enough… Alesya wanted to have the comprehensive skill set to be a complete permanent makeup artist and instructor. At the time AcademyS founded by Sviatoslav Otchenash and PhiAcademy were partners.

Recognizing the incredible opportunity this presented to learn directly from Sviatoslav Otchenash himself, Alesya began a parallel journey almost identical to that of becoming a Bold Brows Master.

Training in advanced permanent makeup techniques (Magic Shading Eyebrows, Stardust Shaded Eyeliner and Aquarelle Lips) with both Sviatoslav and US Grand Master Paola Soto and assisting with trainings.  Hard work and dedication paid off, by becoming an AcademyS Master and trainer in permanent makeup.

Will Anthony

Smoky Lash Enhancement® / Stretch-niques®

Will Anthony is known for a natural and subtle approach to PMU. Early on in my career I was drawn to Will’s Smoky Lash Enhancement® eyeliner technique.

Will realized after teaching and watching students struggle while doing eyeliner procedures, that many students did not have proper stretching techniques for eyeliner procedures. Proper stretching is critical for great healed results.

Will developed a comprehensive course (“STRETCH-NIQUES”) demonstrating how to properly stretch the eyes while doing eyeliner procedures. 

I am glad to have taken both of those trainings.

Alesya with Majorie Grimm

Majorie Grim, CPCP

A pioneer and 30+ year industry legend in permanent makeup circles. I took Marjorie’s’ 2 day live ColorPro color theory workshop. An amazing wealth of knowledge in permanent cosmetic color theory.

Marjorie Grimm is also the author of “Permanent Cosmetics  – The Foundation of Fundamental Applications”.  The PMU industry’s leading textbook for training new PMU artists. This is the training textbook our students use in the 132 Hour Fundamentals of Permanent Makeup course.

Alesya with Mary Ritcherson

Mary Ritcherson & Alesya

Mary Ritcherson

At a conference in Florida Alesya attended a breakout session on NanoLines® by Mary Ritcherson her trademark machine hair strokes technique.

Understanding that while natural looking hair stroke eyebrows are in big demand, not everyone is a good candidate for microblading.

NanoLines creates natural looking hair strokes using a single very fine “nano” needle and permanent makeup machine.

Alesya then attended Mary’s complete NanoLines®  machine hair strokes training class.

Teryn Darling

Is a true PMU artist, having personally completed tens of thousands of procedures.

Teryn is a recognized leader and trainer in the permanent cosmetic industry. 

Teryn is the founder of Girlz Ink a PMU studio and training center in Las Vegas.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to personally train with Teryn on several occasions.

 

European Masters

Many of the finest techniques in permanent makeup today originate in the former Soviet Union.

As a native Russian speaker, Alesya is able to access much of the training offered by these talented Russian master PMU artists.

Machine hair strokes, ombre eyebrows and lip techniques have all been studied, practiced and perfected under the guidance of numerous masters.

Continuing Alesya’s philosophy of always learning to bring the best techniques to her clients and students.

 

 

Removal Training

Sadly, not all permanent makeup work is prime time ready. The reasons are many and varied. But inevitably people will reach out and ask if you can “correct” their existing permanent makeup.

Often, it will not be possible to work over the prior PMU.  It can be old school “sharpied” eyebrows, color shifted, over saturated or just poor shape or symmetry. You want to avoid reinforcing the existing problem. What do you need? A good removal technique.

So I learned multiple removal processes:

Li-Ft from Lipigments

PhiRemoval

Xtract Removal

Extensive review of 33 additional removal products.
