Anna Johnson
Owner, Educator, and Artist

Welcome! I am Anna the owner and educator at Pinpoint Permanent Cosmetics. I’ve been helping women change the way they look a feel as a permanent makeup artist for over 4 years now. I love that something as simple as a nicely shaped brow or eyeliner can make all the difference in lifting ones mood and boosting self-esteem.

After 8+ years in the beauty industry as an esthetician. I did the unthinkable… I flipped a house with my parents, not recommended unless you have 6 months of time to kill! However, I used the money to pay for an advanced permanent makeup education with a European Permanent Makeup Company (Europe is much more advanced in their PMU techniques) and of course to start a business focusing solely on permanent makeup. My goal is that when you walk into the salon you instantly know your in the right place. I wanted Iowans to have access to amazing permanent makeup where quality is a priority.

When I am not at the salon. You can find me at home with my husband and labradoodle, patiently waiting the arrival of our first child this January. I have no problem having three books going at once. Typically a health book, a business book, and a self-development book. My husband will tell you that I have the most productive ‘days off’ thanks to my love of making lists. Even better if it’s content I can organize into an excel spreadsheet!

I offer the kind of permanent makeup I would want on my face. I tend to like permanent makeup that enhances your beauty. Anything very dramatic or trendy should probably be left to topical makeup. With my clients I not only take into consideration how it will heal but how it will look in 5-10 years from now.

We have a lot of good information on our frequently asked questions page. Take a look there and feel free to send me an email at anna@pinpointpermanentcosmetics.com with any question you may have.

Hello! I am Laurie. I have a background in Art, Makeup, and Esthetics. As a wife, mom of two kids, and two dogs. I understand need for enhancing your life and restoring your confidence in a more permanent, hassle-free way. 

Connecting with people is one of the many things I love about being a permanent makeup artist. I thrive in doing detailed work and enjoy rising to challenging situations. I am always striving to perfect my skills. Seeking to understand the cause and effect of a situation is in all likelihood, where my love for fitness streams from. 

My friends and family would say I have a really easy going personality. Aside from spending time with them, I love trying new foods and going to concerts. To date, I’ve seen to over 100+ live bands, too many now that I’ve lost count. But my long lasting makeup tips and tricks for those hot summer days are tried and true!

I generally like to start more conservatively with your permanent makeup, unless you know you are looking for something more bold. I listen closely to my clients requests and concerns, and thoroughly explaining everything for a calming, stress free appointment.

Take a look at our social media for before and after photos. Consultation are always free and it’s the best way to ask any question and to see how your brows will be shaped out.

“Give someone five minutes with Laurie and they instantly love her! She has one of
those charismatic personalities that you just enjoy being around!”- Owner Anna

AGINDA LU

Microblading and Lash Artist

Welcome! I am Aginda, pronounced like agenda as in the appointment diary. However, the Thai meaning is precious jewels.

In beauty school, I wanted to specialize in brows. Now 4 years later, here I am! I would even testify that I manifested this fun, creative permanent makeup career! It doesn’t feel like work and each day I get to help women feel beautiful and confident. I love the feeling of seeing happy and satisfied clients looking at their brows for the first time after a brow service.

As I hand you that mirror, you can take a worry-free peak, knowing that I double, triple, quadruple check my work, so that is just RIGHT for you. I have a gentle approach and detailed in explaining the process, ensuring ease and comfortability for all my clients.

When we are not discussing the service itself, we will likely be talking about astrology. I am astrology obsessed! In fact, I  remember all my clients by their Zodiac sign! Probably not shocking coming from an INFJ personality type on the Myers Briggs Chart.  I am constantly working on ways to nurture my spirituality to help other nurture theirs!

If you are guided to book an appointment with me, I’ll take care of you! Book online now or call the salon to set up your visit!

“As a beauty professional, one of the best things you can do is have a commitment to knowledge. Aginda’s love of learning is what puts her in front of her industry and fuels her passion. And that shows up in her work!” -Owner Anna Johnson

Hello! My name is Allison, I am a photographer, artist, and now permanent makeup artist!

Ever since I can remember I have LOVED makeup. The ability to enhance your natural beauty and highlighting your features was magical. Especially for a redhead where your features are….. not so noticeable! Finding a career as an artist is tricky. I have always wanted a career where I can work with people and help to improve their happiness.

I lived in Japan for 3 years and it was there that fell in love with the beauty industry. It wasn’t until I moved back to my home state of Iowa that I found Pinpoint Permanent Cosmetics. It was a no brainer. I became OBSSESSED with permanent makeup and the intricacies and skill set it took to be successful. I can finally say I have found my dream job! Not only do I get to create each and every day, but I get to help other people feel their very best. WIN-WIN.

As a permanent makeup artist, it is my goal to achieve the most natural effortless look to bring you the convenience of no longer struggling with shape or feeling bare with a fresh face. During our appointment, we go in depth about what you are wanting. I hear your frustrations, I hear your goals, to help see YOUR vision. Together we will build your dream brows.

Check out my work on our Instagram, I would love to meet you!

“When Allison is working I hear nothing but laughter coming from her room. She is highly personable and makes everyone around her happy and feeling good!” -Owner Anna Johnson
