Today, cosmetics can be permanently applied through the medical profession as dermapigmentation; this process evolved from the ancient art of tattooing. Gloria Jean "G.J." Normand and her daughter, Jennifer Adkins, of Advanced Cosmetic Techniques have been applying permanent makeup since 1985; prior to that, they were both Certified Clinical Electrologists. They have over 30 years of experience in the beauty industry!
G.J. and Jennifer have appeared as guests on several nationally televised talk shows, including Oprah Winfrey, Joan Rivers, Montel Williams, Lifetime's Attitudes, Queens, as well as many others. Jennifer operates the studio in her hometown of Natchitoches, LA. G.J.'s studio is located on the beautiful Gulf Coast in Orange Beach, Alabama.
