Course Description

BA (Hons) Hair and Make-up for Fashion?nurtures students in research, design, concept development and technical capability.  

The course works closely with complementary courses: Fashion Photography, Fashion Styling and Production, and Fashion Imaging and Illustration. This means that every student can learn the skills of relevant disciplines. The importance of teamwork will be explored through collaborative projects but students will also work independently to develop key skills and personal style in preparation for the industry.  

Students acquire the practical skills of make-up and hair design, together with broader academic studies which give a contemporary and historical understanding of the creative disciplines within the wider perspectives of fashion, society and the environment. This will integrate the practical and theoretical aspects of students’ learning. Students also learn research skills which will underpin innovative creative practice and develop valuable analytical skills and critical awareness. 

What to expect 

  • Technical workshops on the specialisms of hair and make-up. 

  • Creative masterclasses, pop-up studios, photographic studio access. 

  • Class room sessions: lectures, presentations, seminars and critiques.
