Why Are We So Special? 


The average permanent makeup technician in the United States makes just shy of $65,000 a year gross. A full time Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) technician can make a minimum of $100,000- $250,000 a year gross with the right mentorship. As a new artist we discourage the “booked and busy phase”, and instead focus on linear intentions. In order to double your income while working fewer hours you must employ mentorship, follow strict milestones, and wholeheartedly accept an ongoing investment which can change your life in 90 days. There are no other business models on earth with such a low entry barrier coupled with such high returns in its first operational year. If you are looking to change your career, or supplement your current income, then you must learn how to structure your SMP business to scale with intention. There are many trainers who offer SMP classes, but only a few have the skill set, earned income, and portfolio to actually help you grow. In 2023 Scalp Prodigy and Vanguard SMP combined training methods to restructure the SMP training essentials which include a 3-month budget to help you grow, and mimic our process, so your first year and beyond is successful. We will train with positive energy, remove all limitations, and increase your financial stability which hedges against any economic changes. We offer hybrid online courses and face-to-face Scalp Micropigmentation courses at all of our facilities located in Las Vegas, NV, Los Gatos, CA, Silver Spring, MD, Naples, FL, and Orlando FL. Students from all over the world seek expert level training coupled with our financial and lead generation connections which can help establish your brand. Furthermore, we will continue to peer-review your work to ensure you operate at the highest efficiency going forward in your business. In time your skill set will grow, and your business will thrive as you learn the ebb and flow of entrepreneurship. We look forward to watching you command wild success in our industry.

 Course Curriculum  


The curriculum for all locations will consist of the practical knowledge needed to open, maintain, and create a high-ticket service. The theory, design, symmetry, values, closing, debt de-escalation, and marketing are precise and detailed. Our course will supercharge your business growth, regardless of whether you are in the infancy stages of opening your new business, or a career veteran. If you are already a permanent makeup artist in the industry, then this course is the fastest way to increase your bottom line and create additional active income. The hybrid course curriculum is available online or in person at all three locations if you cannot spare three days off work. The online course gives you the option of a one-day hands-on model day coupled with business building. When choosing a trainer for a high-ticket service you want to ensure they are well versed in scalability, since operating a business will require more than just mastering techniques to survive post-COVID. Your success over time will depend heavily on your ability to reach back to your trainer and ask for guidance. We have one of the most sought-after Scalp Micropigmentation training courses because we set the highest standard when it comes to understanding the back end of business processes and sales. We have established a strong business model founded by a low overhead and strict transitions into passive income streams for our students. Our repeatable business models are turnkey if you follow the process and implement the strategies we cover in class. Click the contact button below and start your exciting new career today!


What You’ll Learn

If you chose the online option then the theory must be completed online and all homework requirements must be submitted via email before advancing to a perfection training. Post course homework will be given during class to test your skills as it pertains to pointillism. Please be sure to turn in your work after class to ensure your impressions are clean, precise, and the correct depth and gradient. An advanced class is available in person at our flagship facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, or Orlando/Naples, Florida for two days only if your work is approved. If your work is not approved then a mandatory 3-day course is required. The primary form of instruction will be hands-on. On site there will be limited reading requirements since the focal point of class will be based on mastering practice skin, hands on techniques rigorously repeated throughout the day to build muscle memory, and financial stability. Models will be available to build your portfolio. We want you to be successful, but it is up to you to follow the strict rules we ask you to follow for the first 3 months. Ask questions, let us know when you are stuck, and mimic our processes exactly. There is no need to reinvent the wheel since we have already done the heavy lifting. Let us push you to your highest potential with our SMP training.

  • Mastering debt elimination so you can commit 100% to your business.
  • Introductory level of precision, depth, and symmetry.
  • Advanced level mastery of hairlines, blending, and values.

Normally prerequisites are not required for permanent makeup courses, but we strongly advise you to take the Skin Anatomy and Photography course to prepare you for the next step in your business. These courses will allow you to establish yourself as an educated tattoo artist and grow your social presence online. The anatomy course can be taken before, or after class to familiarize yourself with the skin and how it pertains to the cellular reaction as the ink is placed below the epidermis. The photography course will improve your skills by perfecting your portfolio online. Placement, lighting, and a consistent brand image is useful when building your empire. Scalp Prodigy does not receive any proceeds from the digital courses below. The class referrals are simply great educational tools needed to thrive in the permanent makeup (PMU) industry.
