(6 Day Asian Bridal Hair and Makeup Course plus optional Photoshoot on 7th Day)
This course is very detailed and comprehensive and will be the only course you will require to be an asian bridal hair and makeup artist. You are also taught advanced techniques for makeup and the latest and most requested bridal hairstyles. The course is suitable for beginners and professionals.
The course is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, one of the largest trade bodies in the beauty industry. All our accredited courses are insurable and recognised by the beauty industry.
What sets us apart from other asian bridal training academies:
We cover more looks than any other asian bridal training academy – We teach you how to be versatile by teaching you core techniques which will enable you to create more than 50 looks. You can view all makeup looks covered during this course as well as examples of additional makeup looks you will be able to create from the techniques taught in this course. You will also be taught advanced makeup looks such as different types of cut crease makeup, as well as other advanced makeup looks.
We cover more hairstyles than any other asian bridal hairstyling academy. You can view all hairstyles covered during this course as well as examples of additional hairstyles you will be able to create from the techniques taught in this course.
We teach hairstyling for thin hair, thick hair, long hair, medium hair, and short hair.
To maximise learning time students practice on live models as opposed to practicing on each other as with certain academies, which in effect reduces learning time by half.
Our students practice applying makeup on the whole face and not just half of it as taught by some academies, as invariably clients do not have symmetrical faces and as a professional your job is to balance the makeup on both sides of the face to look even and flawless.
During our courses we focus only on perfecting your makeup skills rather than preparing posts for our social media in your learning time as seems to be the norm with most academies.
Our students portfolio work is strictly our students work only, see information regarding Day 7 below for explanation as to why this is important.
Versatility is our strength – Our hair & makeup videos and portfolios demonstrate a larger variety of looks than any other asian bridal training academy. We teach completely different makeup looks as opposed to the same look with different colours.
Basic and advanced techniques for contouring and highlighting as well as corrective contouring techniques taught for different facial features.
You are taught basic and advanced techniques for foundation application for a flawless finish. You will also learn about makeup suitable for different skin tones and skin types i.e. different types of foundation.
We provide full details of all products and tools both high end and cheaper alternatives to suit your budget.
We teach you how to identify different features such as eye shapes, face shapes, skin types, skin tones, etc so that you are able to apply the appropriate makeup to enhance their natural beauty. During trials clients will focus on your makeup skills before deciding to book you and will not be wearing their wedding outfit and jewellery (which can divert attention from the actual quality of makeup skills taught, i.e. blending).

Optional Day 7 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.
