CEO/FOUNDER Grand Master

Mahnaz Bahaelou is the Founder and CEO of Elite Permanent Makeup.
She has been performing permanent makeup and microblading for the past 20 years and is recognized around the world for her natural techniques. After coming from Iran, she began her business by working on clients in her apartment. By word of mouth, Mahnaz became more popular and started renting booths at various salons. With the increase in her client base came an increase of inquiries to learn the art of permanent makeup. Mahnaz came to realize the incredible opportunity to share her passion and knowledge with eager new students.

In 2012, Mahnaz took a leap of faith and decided to open Elite Permanent Makeup and Training Center. Elite is now one of the most well-regarded permanent makeup schools, with students traveling from a variety of cities, states, and countries to study at our institution. With a large social media following, hundreds of 5-star reviews on google, an A+ rating on the BBB, the approval to operate by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, and the launch of Elite’s permanent makeup product line, it is needless to say… Elite has grown beyond Mahnaz’s hopes and she can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future!
