Why train at Delamar Academy?
Delamar Academy is industry renowned as the leading school for make-up and hair training. Students travel from all over the world to take our courses. Like the Oxford or Cambridge of make-up training, we are one of the oldest and longest-standing establishments, producing graduates whose careers have won Oscars, BAFTAs, Emmy’s, Indian and Italian Academy Awards, plus Vogue make-up artist of the year.
From film to fashion, each tutor is hand-selected for their experience and impressive list of credentials. A great mix of personalities and teaching styles are present in the Delamar classrooms.
By limiting the sizes of our classes, our students are given everything in our arsenal to develop their skill set and industry knowledge. Every student experiences their own professional journey and personal development here. We do not merely take course fees and teach; we persistently nurture careers for years after graduation and provide a caring hub of support and ongoing free masterclasses. We also have a free agency to place our graduates on the top jobs. For many years after graduating, Delamar Academy maintains an open door policy, perfect for a cup of tea and catch-up.
The Delamar Academy learning experience is not only contained to our classes, we also regularly host free masterclasses outside of Academy hours for students and alumni. Only recently we had a red carpet masterclass with Mary Greenwell, a bridal masterclass Hannah Martin from Bobbi Brown, a prosthetics masterclass with International Prosthetics Make-up Artist, Richard Redlefsen and a fashion masterclass with the brand Kevyn Aucoin.
Every year we send a high number of graduates to work on blockbuster film sets, music videos, commercial shoots, TV dramas, theatre productions and fashion shows. Our tutors provide many of these opportunities, by taking students onto their working teams. Technical ability does not go very far without a great can-do attitude. This is drilled into our students, and we are proud to provide a very holistic approach to training here, going above and beyond with our mentoring on everything from set etiquette to time keeping. Due to our long industry experience and diverse areas of specialism, the Advanced Complete Make-up Artist course and Cert HE Professional Make-up Design course fully equip students with many industry subjects from avant-garde hair to wincingly-gory casualty.
