Who are your courses for?
Can I work in the industry after completing your course?
Is your course nationally recognised?
Do I need a Diploma or Certificate to work as a Hair Stylist or Makeup Artist?
The good news is if you want to work as a professional hair stylist or makeup artist in the bridal, glamour, red carpet, editorial, fashion or media, starting your own business, working in a salon or for a retail brand, then you don’t need a 12 month – 18 month diploma or certificate course, and you don’t need to go into a huge debt before you’ve even started, our 10-week course will get you there.
Will I receive a certificate?
How many students will there be in my class?
I have previously learnt from another school, can I join your course?
Even if you have been working in the industry for a while and you want to sharpen up your skills, learn the latest looks, styles or just a refresher, then you will definitely love our courses.
Do I need to do both Hair Styling and Makeup Artistry or can I do just one?
If you are undecided, then we recommend you start with our makeup course first, then look at enrolling into our hairstyling course after that. This is usually what most of our students do, as both courses are designed to work together.
How do I enrol?
Does the course come with a professional kit?
In our experience we found that students who pay for ready-made kits will spend an additional $500-$3000 on just on a kit alone, and most of the time will receive products and equipment that they won’t like or continue to use after they graduate. There are so many hair and makeup brands on the market and choosing what works for you is such a personal choice, because not everyone likes the same things. So while you are learning with us, and learning how to choose the right products for you, we invite you to use our products and tools so that when you do eventually invest in your own products and tools, you will have a better understanding of what to look for.
Who will my trainer be?
Alondra is a self taught artist who founded the Academy of Hair and Makeup on the principles of guiding her students to feel confident in every area of becoming a professional hair and makeup artist, from the artistry skills to building their businesses.
What are the Business and Photography subjects all about?
The other bonus subject we offer is “Photography for Professionals”. It is proven that taking professional images and videos of your work a very important key to gaining clients, which is why we work closely with amazing photographers who specialise in the beauty and fashion industry. Our photographers teach our students how to capture the perfect images of their work just by using their smart phone, no digital cameras necessary.
These 2 bonus subjects are free for any student who enrols in our professional hair styling or makeup artistry course.
What is your scholarship program?
There are people who through no fault of their own, have received the short stick in life, experiencing a traumatic event, illness, financial hardship, homelessness or suffering more than the average person. People who genuinely want to help themselves but can not afford to pay for a course that will give them the skills they need to move a head in life.
It is for this reason that we created our Scholarship Program, where we donate a select number of courses every year to people who truly need it.
We trust in our community and we know that the people who can afford to pay for our course will do so, and by doing that, they help us to continue to provide free education for the people who truly can not afford it. The hardest thing in life can be having that second chance at life, and sometimes it only takes another person who truly sees you for who you are and is willing to help you get that second chance, in our case its through learning a new skill that can provide work and open new opportunities.
To find out more, apply and learn how we select people for our scholarship program, please email us directly.
Government funding and international students
We are a private school so we do not offer any government funding or offer government programs. Usually government funding will be available for longer courses, like the 12-18 month Diploma or Certificate courses found at Tafe, where a course may cost upwards of $10,000. If you are approved for government funding, then what that means is that it will require you to sign up with for a VET student loan, meaning you will have to eventually pay back the total amount, this doesn’t include the additional expense of a kit either. Having such a huge debt before you’ve even started working in the industry can be a little daunting for new students.
On the other hand, our courses are really affordable, we even offer payment plans, and on top of that, you don’t need to spend an additional hundreds or thousands on a professional kit, because we supply most of the products and tools you need to complete the course.
