Hair & Make-Up For Theatre
Do you love doing make-up? Whether it is your own, or a friends? Do you love creating not only beautiful, imaginative or theatrical characters? Do you watch films and find yourself being distracted by the incredible make-up on a fantasy like Harry Potter? Or the beautifully styled wigs on Downton Abbey.
A Degree in Hair & Make-up for Theatre and media could be the right course for you.
We are a 3 year full time BA (Hons) course.
We are a practical lead course, and believe that the best way for you to learn is to teach you to the standard the industry requires. We explore the latest methods and materials. We teach you to build and perfect your basic skills, whilst working on projects which allow you to get the nearest experience to working in the industry. We actively look for work experience and encourage all our students right from the very first day of study to do the same.
Examples of work experience our students have undertaken are:
GOODWOOD REVIVAL, ENO, PINEWOOD STUDIOS, ROYAL OPERA HOUSE, BBC4, ENGLISH NATIONAL BALLET, LONDON FASHION WEEK , NATIONAL THEATRE, KRYOLAN – just to name a few!
So if you think you might be interested in spending the next 3 years with us, please get in touch or arrange a visit.
The digital exhibition is based on ‘Maximalism’ from our final year of the Degree in Hair & Make-up, and is in memory of the course founder Amanda Burns.
‘Maximalism is a celebration of excess and redundancy, where “more is more” takes precedence over its widely known sibling, “less is more”…’
Rhiannon Claire McBean
“And one day the process will be finished, the waiting will be over, and you will leave the dark, confusing, yet in some ways beautiful, chrysalis of this life, and you will be fully and finally transformed.” – Philippians 3:12
"There was a rumour going around that the Cockettes were seen everywhere but at rehearsal. They were just enjoying partying and being the hottest guys in town."
“I like capturing stuff that is disappearing - that’s the point of photography. What I am photographing is an imaginary place that never existed, but is connected to something that has already been.” - Tim Walker (Charlotte Sinclair, June 2008 )
