Founder & Technical Director
Mary-Anne started this life as a consumer of semi-permanent Make-up in The United States nearly twenty two years ago. The freedom, delight and satisfaction of great permanent make-up led her to train as a technician. Having trained extensively in all aspects and procedures, both in the United Kingdom and the USA she is a qualified Master Technician and Instructor.
Expertly applied, permanent make-up (also called semi-permanent make-up) can enhance your features and natural beauty, roll back the years, add definition and colour and give an individual confidence to Face the world 24/7 without being inhibited or embarrassed by a “bare” face, however the results depend wholly on the skill and artistry of the technician who applies it.
Mary-Anne has worked exclusively in this area for well over a decade and as a leading expert in this field is one of the top technicians both in the UK and the USA. Her success lies not just in her Technical excellence and artistry but also in her ability to listen to and fully understand her clients’ desires & expectations and to help and inspire both clients and students to achieve and realise their goals.
Mary-Anne constantly conducts research on a global scale, ensuring her clients and students receive the most up-to-date information, from new developments to best practices.
Her approachable, friendly style ensures her clients achieve their desired look and also feel comfortable and safe with the whole permanent cosmetics experience. Her results are truly beautiful, producing safe, permanent cosmetic enhancements. She also personally trains each and every technician working with Pretty Permanent Make-Up to ensure the standard and quality of all our technicans is of the highest standards in The Country.
Originally from Brazil I've been in the UK for 18 years working as a trained dancer and teacher specialising in Belly dancing and Samba.
I love all aspects of women's beauty and fitness. I achieve the fitness with dancing and beauty through helping women achieve the right look they want.
Makeup has been a passion for me with both professions & my aim is to help women of all ages to feel and look their best and boost their confidence.
I have trained personally with renowned semi- permanent Make -up artist & teacher Mary-Anne Hunter from Pretty Permanent Makeup and I am now very much looking forward to helping you achieve the look you've always wanted!
"Was a model for Serena and at first was very nervous. Serena listened to my concerns and talked me through the procedure. I was mostly pain free due to the numbing cream. The shape and colour are perfect and I have already been complemented on them and they aren't even 24hrs after being done" Michelle Shouler.
"Today's top-up for my eyebrows was both professional and friendly. I love the result. It didn't hurt at all, in fact I was so relaxed I could have fallen asleep. Can't wait to get my Eyeliner done. Many thanks Serena". Dawn Everest
"I'm very nervous of needles, and Serena and the rest of the staff fully put me at ease. A lot of anaesthetic is applied to the eyebrows, before the procedure , so it only stings a little. I would 100% recommend pretty permanent makeup and Mary-Anne Hunter and her team to anyone who has any concerns over needles!" Suzie Hook.
