Period Make-up and Hair
Extend your period make-up skills by learning to combine period make-up and hair styling on our Period Make-up and Hair course.
Before applying for this course, we ask that you have completed the following Delamar courses or can demonstrate equivalent experience:
What you will learn
This course starts with a visit to the National Portrait Gallery, to develop an eye for reference subjects, such as paintings – crucial to study before the existence of photographs. Building on the period techniques learned earlier in your course (see prerequisites), you will research 2 period looks of your own choice to combine period make-up and hair for creation of an individual project.
This will involve setting, dressing out, fitting, and applying wigs, as well as using make-up and costume to achieve the final finish for your required look.
The course fee includes use of a brush set and some products included in 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.
Your next steps
In addition to the course prerequisite, there are only two requirements for entry to this course:
- You must be at least 18 years old;
- If English is not your first language, you must have a good standard of spoken English (equivalent to IELTS 6).

After a successful telephone interview, a deposit of £225 and a completed enrolment form will secure your place on the course. The remainder of the course fee is due before you start the course.
“Attending Delamar academy was the best decision I ever made! Not only do you learn everything there is to know about makeup but you also get taught about the ins and outs of the industry by the amazing tutors who work as makeup artist themselves!”
