Hairstyling Courses

As a make-up artist, you can significantly increase your earning potential by offering hair styling as an added service. This works well for weddings, special events, and photo shoots/ model portfolio shoots (test shoots). You will not be expected to colour and cut the hair at photo shoots or special occasion bookings (like a wedding/matric dance) you will need to style the hair and create a suitable look for the occasion or photo shoot. This is what our hair styling courses focus on … just what the industry requires.

This comprehensive hairstyling course is designed for make-up artists who want to get the fundamental techniques of hairstyling, as required for photo shoots and special occasion bookings. No prior hairstyling skill is required. Students will use our professional styling products during classes: hair spray, mousse, root lift spray, silicone, smoothing lotion, gel etc. Students are required to use their own styling tools in class (hair dryer, iron)
