Jenna Woodward 

Managing Director & Mentor

Jenna started her beauty career back in 2004 starting her own mobile beauty business doing nails, spray tans & lash lifts. At the same time Jenna held a full time corporate job in Sales and continued to grow her beauty business in the evenings and weekends. Following having her brows done in 2014 this is where her love and passion for Semi Permanent Makeup started.

Whilst on maternity leave and after having her little boy Luca, Jenna decided now was the time to leave her corporate job and set up her own business in which she then trained in Microblading. Jenna then went on to develop her skills and trained in machine brows with Tracy Fensome in London, Ombre Brows, Lip Blush and Lash Enhancement with Claire Hobson and Jenna has attended many masterclasses with amazing trainers worldwide such as Clarissa Stefania, Aniela Korbabinska & Monica Ivani and many more!

Jenna started her training academy in February 2017 and it has grown from strength to strength and is now a MULTIPLE AWARD WINNING TRAINING ACADEMY, NATIONWIDE! Jenna welcomes everyone into her academy with open arms and her passion is to help people not only learn a skill, but to help them set up a business, succeed and find their passion just like she did.

“This industry has changed my life and I love being able to help others do the same! Teaching someone a skill is the easy part, helping someone succeed, giving them the confidence, the support, knowledge and guidance to create a life they want to lead comes naturally and I feel this is a vital part when choosing the right training academy for your future!” x

We have a handpicked and passionate team at the Academy each with their own specialities. Although Jenna would love to train each and every single student that comes into the Academy the demand is bigger than what she can manage and so she has handpicked the right team to have behind her, not only are they good at what they do but they are the right person to continue the core values of the business.
