It is imperative more now than ever because of the demand that we raise standards in our field to avoid some of substandard work performed by inexperienced technicians
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
Permanent Cosmetic Industry Expert Jaudon Sunde has been invited to serve on the National Advisory Board for the Alliance for Safe Practice that will oversee the State of Ohio.
Based in Arlington, Texas, the Alliance for Safe Practice (http://www.safepractice.us) mission is to advance safe practice in the permanent makeup industry and to be a source for accurate reporting for permanent makeup professionals; their 2008 initiative is to work with state government regulators to establish sound regulations and legitimate industry protocols for certification processes and apprenticeship programs in each state. The Alliance for Safe Practice aims to impact the permanent makeup profession in a profound way by shaping the regulations that govern permanent cosmetics in their state.
"It is imperative more now than ever because of the demand that we raise standards in our field to avoid some of substandard work performed by inexperienced technicians," says Sunde.
The Alliance for Safe Practice seeks to work with those physicians and practitioners who are most qualified and committed to integrity and procedure excellence in the permanent makeup profession. "Jaudon Sunde was chosen to represent the Alliance in the state of Ohio because of her tireless efforts to raise training and certification standards and because of her skills and expertise in the permanent cosmetic industry," said Sandi Hammons, ASP president (http://www.sandihammons.com).
Hammons commends Sunde for her commitment to ethics, integrity and personal service. "I have known Jaudon Sunde for several years," Hammons added. "She is not only personally committed to ongoing education, she is very skilled in her field, and her principled directives and commitment to public service is very honorable."
Jaudon's business caters to people with medical conditions who can no longer apply cosmetics or who have lost eyebrows and eyelashes and facial definition to cancer treatments.
Sunde is certified as a Master Instructor-Trainer by the American Institute of Interdermal Cosmetics and was selected as a Speaker at the 2007 International Intradermal Cosmetic Expo (IICE) in Dallas, Texas. Her precision work and motivational efforts have been featured on national programs such as Inside Edition and numerous local television news reports around the country. A former model and national makeup consultant, Sunde has worked with some of the foremost companies in the world including Chanel, Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. Jaudon also held the position as National Seminar Director for Christi Harris Co, a National Cosmetics company in Dallas, Texas.
Jaudon also had the privilege of working under the guidance and supervision of several of the worlds most renowned Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Ramsey J Choucair and Dr. Sam Hamra of Dallas, Texas as well as Dr. Michael H. Wojtanowski and Dermatologist, Dr. Lydia Parker, both of Cleveland.
Sunde has a thriving Permanent Makeup Practice in Strongsville, Ohio and is also the creator and owner of the popular Permanent Cosmetic Web site My Wake Up To Makeup.com link to http://www.mywakeuptomakeup.com.
For years, regulatory agencies, permanent cosmetic practitioners, physicians and consumers have been searching for a method to identify skilled practitioners who adhere to safe practice guidelines and exhibit a high level of ethics, competency and artistic expression. Today, the standards in which we practice cosmetic tattoo procedures have improved. However, existing programs fall short of protecting consumers and they do little to identify and support permanent cosmetic practitioners worthy of professional and advanced credentialing.
Health departments are now calling for longer term training programs. Regulators recognize the need for public protection, education and long term, ongoing support and education for practitioners. The Alliance for Safe Practice will also be developing a national advertising campaign to raise public awareness of the Alliance and our credentialing process. California, Tennessee, Colorado and Ohio will be the first states that are targeted in the initial efforts for legislative action.
