What is the best way to train to become a Professional Makeup and Hair Artist?

Hands-on practical experience!

Just like driving a car, you cannot fully learn the essential practical skills, understanding, and knowledge required to be a successful Media Makeup Artist simply by studying books, taking quizzes and watching videos.  Our “Complete Media Makeup and Hair Course” focuses on providing you with the hands-on practical skills and insider knowledge you need to become a successful Makeup Artist (MUA).

Study under Professional Makeup Artist, Judy Neame, who has over 30 years professional experience.  Learn and perfect your  TV, film, photography, runway and stage, makeup and hair skills guided by a professional Hair and Makeup Artist.

The next “Complete Media Makeup and Hair” course starts on 26th September 2017.

Who can Train on The Complete Media Makeup and Hair Course?

The “Complete” course is ideal for you if you want a career in media makeup artistry in TV, film, fashion, photography or theatre.  No makeup experience or formal qualifications are required to start the course, although you need good basic English speaking and writing skills.

Acceptance onto the course follows an informal interview, usually over the phone before visiting the Studio to speak with Judy in person.  This process ensures you are aware of the commitment required to complete 10 months of intensive training and the course is the right one for you.

Whether you are looking for a career change, to refresh your current skills or a young person just starting out on your career, by the end of the course you will be equipped with skills and knowledge you need to be a professional Media Makeup and Hair Artist, including:

  • Knowing how to make the best of a face in TV, film and fashion photography
  • Character work for TV, film, and theatre
  • Prosthetics and makeup SFX (special effects)
  • Wig and facial hair, blocking, cleaning and dressing
  • Hair cutting and barbering
  • Hair styling – modern and vintage
  • Etiquette in the studio and on the film set (what to say, what to wear, customary rules and behaviour)
  • A personal working portfolio, CV, and business cards.

“The course and teaching at Centre Stage was wonderful, I cannot recommend it highly enough! It was brilliantly structured and taught me everything from period hair and make up (Ancient Egyptians through to Victorians) to the extremely modern and up to date hair and make up (make up for HD cameras and Photography, a must have for anyone wanting a career in hair and make up!)” – Cass Michael

With over 30 years experience in TV, film, fashion, and theatre, Judy Neame will be your lead tutor. She will teach you all you need to become a successful media makeup artist in this exciting industry.

The work is not remunerated but is important for gaining hands-on experience and for eventual inclusion in a candidate’s Curriculum Vitae. Work is short-term, generally over one or two days, and is often scheduled to take place during the breaks between each Module (see dates above).

Post-qualification Insurance

Newly qualified MUA students often experience considerable difficulty in obtaining appropriate and adequate professional insurance (Public Liability) cover during their early post-qualification period.

Our Association would have no hesitation in recommending …Centre Stage Media Make-up and Hair Training Studio to up-and-coming artists wishing to train in the Art of Film and TV Make-up and Hairdressing”.
