Since graduating from The London College Of Fashion in 1996 Tina Prajapat has been working as a freelance hair and make-up artist on various media projects ranging from editorials and music videos through to advertising. She has worked back stage at many shows such as The Brit Awards and has also worked with singer Beverly Knight. During this time Tina started to find brides requesting her hair and make-up skills for their wedding day. She soon became very busy doing bridal make-up. Many of these were Asian brides and so started to pick up the additional techniques and dressing skills needed to complete the service. There was also a growing demand from clients asking if she taught hair and make-up which eventually lead her to become a City & Guild qualified teacher and setting up her own training courses.
The design of the courses are fast track to maximise the training time by working directly with a model as opposed to swapping over and working on each other which is less efficient. You will be taught all of the techniques and skills from the basics through to advanced hair and make-up. The class size is kept to a minimum and often taught as a one to one to give you the full teaching attention which is vital when learning a new skill so intensively. After the training its important for you to follow up with practice to reinforce your learning and to start building up your speed and confidence.
The courses have been divided into separate hair and make-up sessions rather than combining them together. This enables you to learn at your own pace and specialise in the skills that interest you. We do not include photoshoots with your training as we believe its important for you to learn your skills first and then start your professional photoshoots when you feel you are ready. We donít offer or include a starter kit but we can put one together for the basic make-up and hair course at a discounted rate upon request. Please contact us for more info.
Our hair and make-up courses have been approved and accredited by The Guild of Beauty Therapists, this enables you to obtain professional insurance cover upon completion of your course.
After your training we are here to help with any problems or questions which you may encounter once you start working. We canít guarantee work experience but will do our best to offer opportunities where possible.
