My Motivation

The moment my clients look in the mirror when I’ve finished their treatment is one of my greatest pleasures in life. Watching their faces light up, I know they feel like a different person.

“You’ve given me back so much confidence,” they say. And that’s the single most important thing to me. It’s what motivates me to achieve the best result for every single person who walks into my treatment room.

The story of Karen Betts

Karen Betts is considered a true permanent makeup pioneer in the UK, beginning her PMU journey over 20 years ago, when Karen owned a small beauty salon in South Elmsall and rented a room to a tattoo artist for extra income. At the time, one of her closest friends was diagnosed with breast cancer, and subsequently underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy. Seeing how the cancer had stripped her friend of not only her hair but of her confidence Karen knew she had to do something;

I went upstairs, got the tattoo gun and started to tattoo her brows, nipples and areolas. The confidence boost she got from doing this made me realise I had to learn how to do this professionally so I could help other people regain their confidence and sense of self. No one in the UK was doing anything like this at the time, so off to America I went to train!

Karen returned to open her own Karen Betts Professional clinic, alongside our award-winning K.B Pro training academies, to broaden the accessibility of these life-changing treatments and give other aspiring artists the ability to share in the same sense of reward that she felt. Almost immediately, brow treatments became popular and demand grew for training as the weeks went by. In recent years these treatments have surged in popularity, due to immense confidence that having fuller and natural looking brows restores.

The first K.B Pro training academy was established in Karen’s home county Yorkshire, followed by an academy in London, and Milton Keynes. Priding themselves on delivering the highest standards of training achievable, K.B Pro teaches students the foundations of permanent makeup and microblading, as well as offering additional courses where students have the option to specialise in the latest trends or advance to medical tattooing

Karen is passionate about elevating the industry standards in delivering microblading and digital makeup treatments to continue the growth of the consumer demand for permanent cosmetics. Karen achieves this by focusing on upskilling artists to deliver the best possible service to ensure that all clients are pleased with their results.
