This course is suitable for beginners (no experience is required) and professionals wishing to update their existing knowledge and skills and add new ones.
The course is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, one of the largest trade bodies in the beauty industry. An accredited certificate is much more valuable than a certificate given by most bridal hair and makeup academies as accredited certificates are nationally recognised by the beauty industry and can be used to apply for many discount schemes saving as much as 35% on some makeup brands.
Accredited courses allow you to obtain insurance, whereas non-accredited courses that provide certificates of attendance or completion do not.

Optional Day 5 for Photoshoot
You will receive professionally edited images for your portfolio to kick start your new career. The model, photographer, jewellery and outfit are all provided. The tutor is present to provide guidance with the hairstyle and makeup thus reinforcing all that has been learnt on the course. Photoshoots take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays following the end of the hair and makeup course.
The Photoshoot is Evidence of the Students Achievement
Our students portfolio work is strictly our students work only i.e. the student has done all the makeup, all the hairstyle, and all the jewellery and outfit setting by themselves at the end of the course without any physical help from the tutor or anyone from her team. Many other teaching establishments pass off pictures as students work whereas the tutor or helper usually do all the hairstyling, and dupatta and jewellery setting themselves, and the student only does the makeup, and in some instances makeup by the student is done on only half the face, whereas the tutor has done makeup on the other half. The whole point of doing a hair and makeup course should be so that the student can complete total hair and makeup looks by themselves by the end of the course without any further help.
