Occhi Institute for Lash & Brow Training

Oak Brook Terrace, IL.

*Dates are subject to change.

Occhi Institute is happy to announce the opening of our new, state-of-the-art training facility next door to our Oak Brook Terrace, IL Lash & Brow Studio! The Microblading class will be extended to 4 days for 2018.

Class size will be limited for this intense educational opportunity, taught by Master Artist and Instructor, Lynn La Palermo of the Occhi Institute.

Microblading is a procedure that can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows. Microblading manually deposits pigment under the top layer of skin with a special bladed pen. The Microblading Technique involves drawing individual crisp hair strokes that are more natural looking than the traditional permanent makeup eyebrow.

Class Itinerary

Day One

Learning to design the perfect brow is critical when introducing permanent makeup.

Day one of this class is geared towards training the eye to understand facial shapes as well as bone structure. As many of us know our face is not as symmetrical as we would like. Whether that’s because one brow bone is more prominent than the other or one side of the face is flatter, this can cause issues with creating the ideal brow shape. During day one of this class you will learn how to measure the eyebrows correctly while using calipers and rulers. Not only will this class provide you with the proper techniques for designing a beautiful eyebrow, it will also teach you to build fundamental skills while working hands on. During day one 3D Eye Shapes will be provided to show the major differences in eye shapes and to hone your skills in perfecting that shape.


Day Two

Microblading is one of the fastest growing techniques in permanent makeup. Day two will begin with providing you theory of Microblading. Lynn La Palermo’s experience and education through theory will guide you to create various shapes and styles of brows. While using 3D practice sheets as well as various blade shapes and thicknesses you will be shown the proper application techniques of Microblading. Hands on practice will ensure you are comfortable with the tools being used and provide you experience with different products and pigments.


Day Three

Hands on work is essential when perfecting your skills in the beauty industry. That is why day three is focused on working with LIVE MODELS. With your instructors by your side to answer any questions you may have, you have the opportunity to practice your skills on a model. Day three is exciting because you get to put all of your new knowledge and skills to work! You are encouraged to bring a model to class for you to work on. This is beneficial because you then can see your work 30 days after application for a follow-up visit (as you would a usual client).

Class is limited to ensure one-on-one instruction.

Class will begin at 9:00 am every day and finish between 4:00 – 5:00 pm.
