Facial Hair

Facial Hair

Take our Facial Hair course to get to grips with one of the most fundamental skills for changing appearance in theatre, film, and TV.

This course teaches you the basics of making and using facial hair and — of equal importance — its correct care and maintenance.

What you will learn

This week long course covers knotting, tonging, dressing, trimming, and the application of facial hair.

You will learn how to knot a piece of facial hair and how to dress and tong moustaches, beards, and sideburns. We will also teach you all the skills needed for the application, maintenance, styling, and cleaning of facial hair.

Please note that the course fee includes use of a brush set and products from our complete kit.

Where you will learn it

The light and airy classrooms of Delamar Academy are located within the world-famous Ealing Studios in West London. (You can learn more about Ealing Studios itself on our Get in touch page or on the Ealing Studios site itself.)

In our spacious classrooms, you will have your own personal workstation – including professional lighting and equipment. Ealing Studios is home to a number of other companies that form a real media community, with visual effects, production, editing, outside broadcast, and record companies all represented. There is also the Met Film School, which offers a first step in studio work experience for our own students when they work on graduate films.

Personal Recommendation

“My experience at Delamar has been incredible. I couldn’t have asked for better tutors, with years of wisdom and knowledge, to have taught me something I am so passionate about. Delamar is definitely worth every penny if a career in hair and makeup is something you desire.”
