Golden Brows Academy

Like many immigrants to Australia, Tina Huynh moved to Australia to build a better life.

Twelve years ago, she left Vietnam to study beauty therapy in Melbourne. While she was studying, she worked in a nail salon in Ivanhoe, and after just one year, she became the owner.

It was while working at and running the salon that she discovered her talent and calling in cosmetic tattooing. Cosmetic tattooing is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that involves tattooing specialised pigment into the upper layers of the skin, usually at the eyebrows, lips, and eyes.

It’s extremely fine work on delicate and sensitive areas of the face, so it requires steady hands and attention to detail. Tina’s skill has even seen her travel internationally as a judge in the PMU (permanent makeup) Universe Awards.

In 2019, the Footscray resident opened Golden Brows Academy in Braybrook, an institute to support other women to train as cosmetic tattoo technicians and where members of the public can undergo cosmetic tattooing procedures.

“I have been in the beauty industry for over twelve years and my ambition was always to have my own business because I wanted to own my time,” says Tina. “Golden Brows Academy is an opportunity for me to share my knowledge and expertise, and to support as many women as possible to start their businesses too.”

Since opening Golden Brows Academy, Tina has taught over 200 students and supported over fifty women, mainly migrants, to start their own businesses. Her goal is to build Golden Brows Academy into a franchise across Australia.

Tina explains her passion for her business as this: “It’s taken me twelve years to get to where I am now, and I want others to be able to learn from me so that they can build a career and gain success in a much shorter time.”
