Media Hair and Make-Up Studies Level 2
FT / PT
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:
- Hair application
- Bald caps
- 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.
