Study Level

Level 2


Lowestoft Campus


1 Year



This course is perfect for anyone who is interested in a career in TV and film make-up or wanting to progress in the industry and gain a higher accreditation and skill set.

You will cover many areas such as:

  • Airbrushing
  • Prosthetics
  • Hair application
  • Bald caps
  • Ageing
  • Dry hairstyling
  • Body paint techniques

You will need to be creative, a great communicator, a team player, reliable and have an interest in current and historical fashions of hair and make-up.

It is important that you have a mature and professional attitude, as the hair and make-up profession is a highly demanding and disciplined one. In particular, you will be required to maintain high standards of personal and professional appearance, including wearing make-up to look presentable; piercings will not have to be covered.

Why study with us:

  • We have great links with industry experts who come in as guest speakers and offer key industry advice and tips
  • We have entered and won numerous national and regional competitions
  • We work with internationally recognised make-up artists such as Karla Powell and Samantha Helen


You will need to have achieved at least three GCSEs at grade 3 or above.

Entry onto this qualification can be via previous attainment of a level 1/2 qualification in beauty therapy and/or a successful skills test and interview. A GCSE grade 4 in English and maths would be beneficial. GCSE Art would be an advantage or a keen interest in creative applications.


There is continuous assessment of each unit. You present evidence of competence via practical assessments and production of a personal portfolio of evidence.


You can progress on to Fashion, Theatre and Media Hair and Make-Up Level 3.
