Phi Brows Master Joanne Woods is an official Educator of Phi Brows in Ireland. Joanne started her Phi Brows journey in 2016 and is now providing training for students focused on qualifying as a professional Phi Brows Artist.

Joanne commenced her teaching career 9 years ago in 2011 as one of Irelands Elite HD Brow trainers. Joanne qualified as a Phi Brows Master in 2020. Joanne is excited to pass on her skills and expertise to students wishing to achieve their optimum potential in the most prestigious brow and beauty brand in the world Phi Academy.

Passionate about beauty, brows and having an ‘attention to detail’ personality has led me to the highest achievement in my career by becoming an official Phi Brows Master. I can give my salon clients the best aesthetic individualised result and my students the benefit of the experience that I have accumulated over the last decade in the semi permanent makeup industry. Shaping brows to suit the shape of each clients face shape has given me the confidence to pursue my career as a Phi Brows Master and the expansion of a growing loyal client base. In 2016 I acquired my own salon and also qualified as a Phi Brows Artist, this enabled me to increase my turnover very quickly. I chose Phi Academy as it is a high-quality world-famous brand with training that provides the highest standards and techniques in permanent makeup and other beauty treatments.

Today, 80% of my clients are Phi Brows and since opening the salon my client base has tripled. My business has expanded permitting me to now employ a team of 9 beauty specialists including, 2 Master HDBrows Artists and an award-winning skincare specialist. It will be my greatest pleasure to share with you my cumulative knowledge and experience gained during my microblading and teaching career.

Providing professionalism and dedication, I will support you through your Phi Brows journey. I aim to guide and assist you as you start on this exciting new career path. I will be here to encourage you to excel within your new Phi Family and help you to expand and succeed. Whether you’re a professional, looking to upskill, or simply trying a new venture, then join myself and the Phi Academy for an exciting future in this highly skilled sector.

I look forward to hearing from you soon

Within the 2 face-to-face days, you have one practical and one theory day. After the 2-day course, we will continue to monitor your progress and give support in our online learning application Craft Master Pro. Craft Master Pro is our unique learning tool to support you further. The entire program consists of 12 levels of progress towards the microblading qualification supported by videos and lectures.

Craft Master Pro is the most advanced and modernized learning platform designed by the industries specialists to support our students after the 2-day course, because it is simply not enough time to mater this skill in 2, 5 or 7 days’ time. We give our students up to 6 months to master this skill and work with confidence. Teacher and student communication are also monitored by the academy; therefore, any unprofessional communication and guidance is strictly prohibited. Another benefit is that student is allowed to wait for the teacher’s response only up to 48h by academy’s policy.

After 2-day course students receive a Certificate of attendance. Phi Brows artist’s certificate is not received by the end of the 2-day course. Phi brows artist certificate is obtained when students have demonstrated satisfactory work for:

  1. Drawing hair on a skin simulation
  2. Drawing symmetry on a live model
  3. Drawing hair on a live model.

Student has to pass 12 levels on Craft Master application:

Level 1 –     Shaping on paper (practice)

Level 2-8-   Hair stroke practice on latex

Level 9 –     Eyebrows shaping on model using symmetry app

Level 10-11Microblading on a model

Level 12 –   Theoretical exam (online chat with the master answering theory questions from the question bank)

Usually, it takes 2-3 months of constant and everyday practice for someone to demonstrate satisfying skills in microblading, if a student will not spend enough time practicing it may take even longer.

We ask our students to have realistic expectations about learning and perfecting the skill of microblading as it is relatively difficult skill.  Perfecting this skill will take a lot of practice and determination.

Communication with master Joanne continues in a mobile application, where students show their work and get feedback from the master. Craft master Pro support is available for a period of 6 months. But Master Joanne will always stay within a reach even after 6 months period.
