About the author:
Hi! My pen name is Robyna Smith-Keys. I am dyslexic & when I left school to become a hairdresser I could not take appointment without asking clients, how to spell their suburb & name. Now I write books, I hope this confession, encourages people that think they could never do this or that, to step out of their comfort zone. Life is a journey.
With my beauty school books/training manuals, I receive lots of thank you notes. When I first started writing books for the beauty industry, there were hardly any books on the subject. Now the market is flooded with them.
My nan paid for my dancing lessons, I have made some big dollars from dancing. I won "Queen Of Sydney Harbor" in 1962, also studied Aromatherapy and Architecture. In 1989, I won three major housing industry awards. Without dictionaries and check spell I could not write these books. You simply need to have a desire to design a happy life and the "will" to search for happiness in the right places. The best of life comes from your mind. Be of good character, aim for the impossible dream, be willing to take a chance, be willing to accept criticism, ignore peoples spite and do not ever let a critic stop you in your tracks.
When I was twenty-four I told someone, I was very close to, that from 5-10 years of age, her father would climb through my bedroom window and have sex with me. She never responded. When I asked her if she had heard what I said, she replied,
"Little girls have big imaginations."
Her, & I never mentioned that moment again. She has spread some malicious rumors about me. We went on with our association as though it never happened. I never ever told anyone else of my childhood disaster of hiding under the bed and in my closet, hoping in my silly little child like mind he would not look for me.
One night- age ten, I sat up and said to this man.
"My dad told me he is going to cut off your penis and tie you by your feet to our tree and leave you there to bleed to death".
He fell back out through my window and never ever came near me again. A few days later he had a stroke and never walked again nor could he speak. My dad had not told me that, in fact, my dad never ever was told of my terrible journey. Never ever underestimate the power of words. Some lies, do need to be told for survival reasons but all lies are very damaging to either the receiver or the liar. So do guard your character wisely.
An Angel For Cosmetic Tattooist
A How To Guide For The Technician
An Angel for Cosmetic Tattooists contains everything you will require - to enter, the field of becoming a permanent makeup technician. The pictures in this copy are black & white. It may also help existing Cosmetic Tattooist improve some of their skill. After 50 years of training others, Robyna has now retired. All her handwritten notes have all been compiled and placed into training manuals. Robyna asked her students to assist with the book and tell her what they needed. The book was given a trial run several times to see if students could work through the book and use it as a reference and how to guide. With their input, the book was revised 20 times before it was released for sale. Robyna first produced the book called "Cosmetic Tattooist Permanent Makeup Micropigmentation Training Manual" in 2007. Then reduced its contents to create this book "An Angel For Cosmetic Tattooists." All the main topics are the same in both books. However, this book does not have the training questions. Without hesitation, we recommend this book, to both professional tattooist and students. You would be well advised to have this book in your collection. If you are new to this field we recommend you purchase the full training manual "Cosmetic Tattooist Permanent Makeup Micropigmentation Training Manual"
Robyna was proud to be chosen to sit on the committee to rewrite the Australian Standards in the Early 1990s for the Hair, Health, and Beauty industry. Again in 2007 - 2014 to rewrite the International Standards. To add to her credits Robyna has been presented with several industry awards. This book was published in 2010 and has since been revised in May 2016
