Beyond the Brows – Jo-Anne Bowden

Posted 10 February 2022

Beyond the brows isn’t just your ordinary beauty salon the niche business provides scalp micropigmentation helping men and women to feel more confident in themselves.

Scalp micropigmentation is a form of permanent tattoo that deposits pigment into the scalp. The results create the appearance of tiny hair follicles that help thicken and restore the look of fuller hair.

Jo-Anne hasn’t always provided scalp micropigmentation, she worked in her previous job for 20 years, before she decided to do a course on brows, it was from here that Jo decided to start her own business. She started doing appointments in between her full-time job but when the business grew, she decided it was time to take her brow business full time.

Jo-Anne attended the Women in Business course held at Stockport Homes, where she learnt how to market her business on social media and how to look after her finances.

Jo-Anne said: “It was great to talk to other women who were in the same position as me, it was great to hear their stories and their business ideas.”

Following the Women in Business Course, Jo was referred by Stockport Homes to the Business Enterprise, where she continued to learn new skills. It was here that she was offered to attend a free course on scalp micropigmentation which would usually cost around £2,000.

Jo-Anne went on to say: “I was so excited; it was something that I’ve always been interested in. I was already in that line of work with the brows, and I still love doing the brows, I love seeing their reaction, I’ve had hugs and tears.”

“I would definitely recommend the Business Enterprise, without it I wouldn’t have got where I am today, my business has definitely taken off since doing the course.”
