Learn the essential skills needed to level up your professional makeup artist career.
Our hairstyling short course is designed specifically for makeup artists or those interested in learning introductory hairstyling techniques to elevate to their makeup career. Quick, easy, and equipping our students with the need-to-know basics, each course runs over three evening classes so you can master the foundations of basic hairstyling.
By adding to your repertoire of makeup, aesthetics, and beauty skills, each student can create a competitive edge and prove invaluable when booking freelance makeup jobs, bridal events, and fashion and photography work.
Learning from our qualified Hair Educators, students in our Adelaide, Brisbane, and Gold Coast campuses can learn the core hair techniques needed to know as a makeup artist and receive the essential tools needed for a basic kit.
