Nichole Kay Jensen has always been very artistically inclined and knew she would end up in a line of work that utilized that talent. Nichole has been the owner of Permanent Makeup Ogden LLC since 2014, with previous years of technician experience in advanced permanent makeup and cosmetic tattooing prior to ownership.
Talking with Nichole reminded me of a permanent makeup experience my grandmother had. My grandmother was very fair and had light hair that turned a translucent white as she aged. Her eyebrows thinned and, unless you looked closely, she seemed to not have any. Permanent makeup made my grandmother especially happy. She got her eyebrows back. Nichole says she loves how much she is able to help people. Sometimes, Nichole helps someone like my grandmother or someone like herself who is allergic to makeup, while other times she is helping someone who just wants to wake up and already have their makeup on. It is cleaner and much more efficient. As Nichole says, “Waking up with color is so nice! My clients get to wake up with the beautiful permanent makeup that I’ve done for them, and that makes me so happy!”
There are many different techniques of applications available, such as Microblading, 3D Eyebrows, Powder Eyebrows, Combination Eyebrows and more. Eyebrows can be custom created to give you an elegantly filled-in finish, a powdered look, or by doing natural and realistic-looking individual hairs to fill any missing or sparse areas. Often, Nichole Kay will combine techniques to ensure the best look and longevity. They can also apply permanent Eyeliner, advanced Waterline Eyeliner, Beauty Marks, SMP/Hairlines, Blended Lip Liners, Lip Blush, and permanent Full Lips lipstick. Clients will often bring in their favorite lipstick, and they will match it with a permanent solution.
Nichole is also a licensed Master Esthetician and Permanent Cosmetics Instructor. She can perform waxing, lash and brow tinting, lash lifts, brow lamination, facial treatments, and skin care services. Nichole said that facial peels and exfoliating treatments are very popular this time of year. A free skin care analysis is available.
If you are wondering if permanent makeup might be right for you, Nichole says she offers free complimentary consultations to discuss your options and to help people know what will look most beautiful. In office consultation visits are available, and she’s also accommodating many virtual consults due to the pandemic. Nichole is licensed and certified through the Weber-Morgan Health Department and Red Cross. Permanent Makeup Ogden is in compliance with all safety and sanitation protocols and requirements and follows all the recommended sanitation and cleaning approaches to ensure a safe and sanitary salon.

Nichole loves being located right inside the historic Cannery building in North Ogden. She and her husband Lance are raising their three wonderful children Danny, Nevaeh, and Shaylee here in her hometown North Ogden as well.
