Dr. Dixon attended Loma Linda University School of Medicine and specialized in Anesthesiology for babies and children. She had already put herself through Dental Hygiene so she had very steady hands. Plus, she pretty much started her life with a sewing machine and thread. As long as she can remember, she’s had a huge appreciation for all things pretty. In 1995 she took a course in permanent makeup and realized there was a real need for pain control, her specialty. So she began creating topical anesthetic creams and gels for her patients so they would be comfortable during their procedures. This was the start when she really got the feeling that she had a passion for creating solutions to common problems in permanent makeup. Since that time, Dr. Dixon has enjoyed pleasing her clients and teaching other professionals around the world. She is President of the American Academy of Micropigmentation, the premier professional organization for permanent makeup.
Hairstrokes have been around a long time. The problem is they have been more like picket fences or stacked logs that left the brows looking worse than if they were filled in completely. Dr. Dixon introduced microblading to the US in 2012 but it wasn't accepted until 2014 when she taught others the refined technique of hairstrokes instead of a solid brow.
