This unique five-day intensive course is ideal for those who wish to acquire additional skills in dressing hair for Bridal, Fashion, Media and TV.

Learners will receive a MASA qualification (Make-up Art Standards Authority) Module Certificate in Fashion & Media Hairstyling.

If you’re a freelance make-up artist it is now more important than ever to offer hair styling services alongside your current make-up services. This course is suitable for those with no prior hair experience and for artists who would like to introduce a hair styling service to their clients.

You will learn all of the core hairstyles and skills needed to work in the industry and offer hair services alongside your current skill set. Having hair skills under your belt will also put you in good stead when wanting to assist more established artists in the Fashion and Beauty Industry.

All hair courses are taught by a practicing freelance make-up and hairstylist, meaning that you will gain the most up-to-date skills and techniques in a professional environment.

There will be a small amount of course work with this module, you will need to produce hair charts and evidence of before and after photographs in order to gain the certificate from MASA but don’t worry your tutor will lead you easily through the paperwork needed to pass.
