Master a series of essential commercial looks in 2 weeks with our Contemporary Hair course.
Whether you are a new make-up artist starting out or already working in the industry but lacking confidence in your hair skills, our Contemporary Hair course is one you cannot afford to miss.
What you will learn
Ever wondered how celebrity hairdressers create those red carpet looks? Find out their secrets by taking this 2 week course covering all aspects of hair styling from bridal through to light entertainment.
Straight from some of Saturday night’s best TV shows (such as ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, ‘Over the Rainbow’, ‘Dancing on Ice’ and ‘Saturday Night Take Away’) our tutors will break down the hairstyles seen in fashion, music videos, the red carpet and dance shows and teach you the skills to achieve them. These intricate and technically challenging styles often need to withstand the shakes and tumbles of the Rumba or Cha Cha Cha, therefore learning skills in how to build on strong foundation work and setting work is essential.
This course also includes 3 days of Afro Hair. You will learn Afro hairdressing skills needed for working as a stylist in the media business. At the end of these 3 days you will have learnt:
- Introduction to Afro and Multi-textured Hair (hair types, curl types, hair and scalp analysis)
- Products (what to use, when to use and how to use)
- Tools (combs, brushes, heat styling tools)
- Hair prep for wigs
- Braiding techniques for wig application
- Styling techniques for type 3 and 4 hair (Curly and Kinky Coiled)
- Maintenance and aftercare
Please note that the course fee includes use of the combs, brushes, and grips included in our complete kit.

“The tutors were all practising make-up artists which meant they had some great tips and advice about the industry which have proved really useful after finishing. The facilities were great and there was such a positive and friendly atmosphere I felt at ease straight away.”
