Hairstyling for Makeup

As part of our Master Makeup Artistry, students are taught in all aspects of our four-week Professional Course and are given the workshop– Hairstyling for Makeup. This workshop is designed to advance the talent and skills of professional makeup artists to achieve basic hairstyles when needed in their professional careers. This workshop runs over 3 consecutive days and consists of 18 total hours. This course is absolutely perfect for NYC makeup artists if they’re on set or working a wedding and the hairstylist is either a no-show or cancels. You’ll also look more valuable to perspective bridal clients since you’ll already be on site for the wedding and they won’t need to hire a hairstylist and rely on two different people to make it.

Airbrush + Sunless Spray
