DIRECTOR, HEAD PMU ARTIST, SMP SPECIALIST & HEAD TRAINER
Christine first entered the world of make-up artistry in 2006 when she trained in make-up and hair for film, tv, and fashion at Delamar Academy in London. She worked as a Make-up Artist for 8 years, and was one of the first people to bring eyelash extensions and HD Brows to Edinburgh, before deciding to venture into the field of semi-permanent make-up in 2014. What was originally meant to be just another string to her bow soon took over and providing semi-permanent brow, eye and lip treatments for clients replaced all other treatments/ work she did.
In 2017, Christine saw a gap in the market for high quality permanent makeup training in Scotland and so she set up the CA SPMU Academy where she offered fully accredited beginner courses in semi-permanent brows. The Academy has gone from strength to strength and now offers both beginner and advanced training in Brows, Liner and Lips. Christine has put her heart and soul into the courses she designs, both in person and online and takes great pride in watching her students create their own profitable businesses.
In 2019, after being fascinated with and having researched Scalp Micropigmentation for years, Christine joined the world’s no.1 SMP provider, SKALP, and opened the Edinburgh Branch of SKALP, bringing top quality SMP treatments to Scotland.

SENIOR PMU ARTIST & TRAINER
Kelley began her SPMU journey as a client of Christine’s. She was a ‘Brow’ girl and knew exactly what she wanted. Once she experienced just how amazing it was to have fabulous brows all day, every day… she decided she wanted to learn how to offer this amazing treatment to other women. So after working 20 years in the NHS she made the decision to sign up for one of Christine’s Beginner Brow courses and took quickly to the art of tattooing. She first worked on her own in Edinburgh, but once a space became available for her to join the studio where her brow journey began, she jumped at it, and Christine couldn’t be more pleased.
Kelley now assists Christine on any training course with more than 2 students to ensure each student receives the required attention needed for the best learning experience possible.
