Anyone working in the media make-up industry knows good hair skills are an absolute must. As part of our 16, 22 week and Year course we focus a lot of attention on hair styling. We cover Basic Hair, Period Wigs, Hollywood Hair and Barbering. It’s essential as a make-up artist to confidently achieve an entire look, with both hair and make-up. In particular there has been a significant increase in the amount of period dramas and films being produced each year. We have had our graduates working on so many of them such as Taboo, Howards End, Downton Abbey, The Crown, This is England, Victoria and Darkest Hour to name a few.
Our 1 week Barbering course has recently had an incredible re-vamp, with the main purpose focusing on men’s period hair styling. With the addition of acclaimed new tutor Ian Grummit, we take our students through the 20th Century, each decade looking at men’s fashion, grooming, celebrities and products they used to achieve their iconic looks.
We work with dolly heads to begin with and by the end of the week students are encouraged to bring in real models to practice on.
The course is invaluable for those in the industry who would like an introduction or top-up in barbering skills. We know many busy make-up artists cannot always commit to a longer barbering course, which start from 20 weeks of evening classes. 1 week is a perfect amount of time to fit in a busy schedule. As with all our courses students are welcome to join for select weeks. We are happy to welcome back graduates for a refresher course in barbering, and for those in the industry wanting to top up their skills we are delighted to welcome you to the Delamar family!
