Jo Walton Permanent Makeup Newsletter No.1
This is my first monthly newsletter, and I’d like to reconnect with my existing clients and introduce myself to prospective clients.
The last year has been a very difficult time for many and I send my thoughts and prayers for anyone that has been ill with Covid or is caring for a family member or friend that is ill or has lost someone. Covid has also taken a toll on a lot of people’s mental health and many of you have suffered the effects of being locked in, not being able to do the things you normally do and love, such as seeing friends & enjoying holidays. With the vaccine rollout well under way, and the lockdown restrictions easing we will all be hopefully able to return to some kind of normality very soon.
So what have I been doing during lockdown? I joined the website https://www.borrowmydoggy.com/ and met a lovely Shollie (shepherd/collie) called Sophia. We have been on lots of adventures, and found parts of Crawley I never knew existed. I’ve been practicing yoga online and via zoom classes. I love yoga with Adrienne on YouTube and have been keeping up my reguar practice with Lauren @ Maliyoga https://malliyogacouk.
I’ve also been updating my website, www.JoWaltonSPMU.co.uk, together with my Instagram and Facebook pages. And I’m trying to get to grips with social media, its been a minefield. I’m trying to self teach, my Facebook and Instagram pages will be up to date in the next few weeks.
I’ve also been doing some online training around new techniques, which has been interesting, as well as practicing on permament makeup skins to keep my skills honed. I have also been networking (virtually) with other PMU artists, which has been helpful. Apart from our lovely clients, we mainly work alone so it’s good to have a group of fellow professionals that we can chat to and discuss work with.
With regards to Covid cleaning measures; my treatment room has been re-decorated and had a thorough deep clean. Most of the equipment I use is disposable but the things that are not, as before, will be wiped down with hospital grade cleaner. Your heath and safety, as well as my own, has always been, and continues to be my absolute priority at all times.
Looking to the future
I look forward to welcoming you all back, for top ups and new treatments. I am in the process of contacting everyone on my waiting list to offer appointments, so you should be hearing from me very soon.
Lastly, are you,or do you know a key worker who would love a permanent makeup treatment for free? I am running a competition to offer a local hero a free treatment, to say thank you for all the hard work they have done over the last year. If you are one, or know anyone, please ask them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org using the title “Keyworker Competition” The email should include; their name, place of work (ID will be required) and which treatment they would prefer (lips, eyeliner or brows?) Good luck!!
