The Beauty of Bizness

Join the Color Lab Academy Network for beauty professionals.

About Me

Color Lab Academy was launched by Nneka Garel-Portes as a response to limited access to quality skills and business training in the niche permanent makeup field but has since grown to include beauty and appearance enhancement professionals in all disciplines. Representation matters at Color Lab Academy, so the information presented within this community is provided by experts from all walks of life, backgrounds, and interests. 

Nneka strives to provide actionable steps that lead to the growth of your business without the fluff and tired motivational speeches. 

Education and Licensing:

  • Master of Business Administration 
  • New York State Licensed Esthetician 
  • Permanent Makeup/ Cosmetic Tattoo: Microblading, Ombre Brows, Scalp Micropigmentation, Stretchmark Camouflage, Scar Camouflage, Botched Ink Removal, Li-Ft Removal, Eyeliner, and Lip Blush
  • Lash Lift
  • Brow Lamination
  • Microneedling

Why You Should Join Me

Joining the Color Lab Academy community means you'll get the benefit of not just expert advice but the ability to network with motivated beauty professionals who are making moves within their communities who don't mind sharing their wins, losses, and keys to success. Again, this is a no nonsense community focused on actionable steps that lead to growth.

A Big Thanks

What we focus on is what we will multiply, and I am thankful to be part of a community of beauty pros who are focused on bettering themselves through continuing education and networking. The support given here goes far beyond the now, as it will impact our communities and families in the most positive way possible. Thank you!
