We understand that in today’s climate students are expecting more from training and our aim is fill this gap.

Meet The Team – Barbara Cameron
Having over 15 years in the beauty and makeup industry, Barbara extended her career into SPMU in 2012. By 2013 Barbara had created the very well known name of “Mrs Makeup”.
Barbara has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and so in her quest for perfection has attended numerous courses and workshops with not only UK academies and trainers but those further a field and quickly became one of the most notable and sought after technician in Glasgow.This also lead to requests of many for Barbara to offer training herself.
Barbara began her training academy and has used her knowledge and experience to develop her own particular style of training which she has become renowned for.
Barbara had the idea of developing L.I.N.K with Naomi back in 2017 as an industry relevant training portal. A place where technicians could go to learn from trainers they admired but may not have had the opportunity to see or learn from before. As the idea grew into reality it became so much more. It became apparent that the industry was also craving knowledge but very often obstacles would make it difficult for this to happen and so L.I.N.K accreditation immerged.
Meet The Team – Naomi Waite
Naomi has over 20 years experience in the beauty industry and over 15 years in SPMU.
Naomi has been running a successful salon “Naomi Waite Aesthetics” for most of this time as well as being a very successful trainer in the beauty industry, in 2013 Naomi began to offer training in Micropigmentation under her “Elite colours” academy. Naomi has hosted courses with several international trainers and brings an energy and enthusiasm to everything she does.
Naomi has a deep passion for her industry and a relentless enthusiasm for success for not only herself but for those she trains and was one of the first to establish a social media platform for technicians to look to for support and advice as she was conscious that this was the missing L.I.N.K in the industry, this opened up the UK industry to a world of technicians and trainers that had never before been possible.
The combination of both Barbara and Naomi have made PMU L.I.N.K the extraordinary success that it has become today and their endless search for knowledge and boundless enthusiasm for learning makes them the perfect combination for an ever growing industry.
