Professional Make-Up in Johannesburg

Women’s Fascination with Beauty and Make-Up

Most little girls are fascinated by make-up; they’ll spend hours watching their mums applying it, wishing that she’d let them loose to experiment with her products and dreaming of the day when they’ll be sufficiently grown up to be allowed to apply cosmetics to their own faces, paint their nails and wear high heels.

Beauty Therapy College

Enrol at a Leading Beauty Therapy College before February

It’s really interesting to speculate exactly why and when women, in particular, became concerned with their appearance, beauty and therapies related to enhancing or improving their visible natural assets. Although it is well known that mankind’s perception of beauty has varied during various eras, it still seems uncertain when the female of the species began to pay attention to her appearance.

Bridal Make-Up

Modern Brides and their Make-Up

Today, it’s rare to encounter a bride who does her own make-up on her wedding day, undoubtedly the most eagerly anticipated, long-awaited special day of her entire life thus far.

Beauty Schools

Beauty Schools and How to Select One which is Tops

Beauty Therapy Courses

An Academy Which Helped Perfect Beauty Therapy Courses

One can but wonder where the standards of beauty therapy and courses on offer in this industry would be in South Africa today, if our prestigious academy had not been established in this country some 50 years ago, way back in 1965. This is especially so because we’ve been one of the bodies which have been so very instrumental in setting the benchmark for the provision of top-quality, specialised training of the highest order.

From Basic Day Make-up to Professional Beauty Career Training

Unless you have a modelling or photographic assignment, or are appearing in a theatre, film or television production in which stage or spot lighting is used extensively, your day make-up should be lighter and considerably different from that which you apply for evening or special occasion wear.

Professional Make Up Johannesburg

Professional Make Up Training in Johannesburg for International Careers

It’s hardly surprising that there are so many learning institutions in Johannesburg, including schools of beauty and professional make up, since this sprawling city represents the heart and hub of South Africa’s economic activity, and is situated in the most densely populated province of the country. Because such a great number of professional make up colleges are located in and around Johannesburg, it may be a little daunting to find exactly the right one at which to study. All undoubtedly profess to be good at what they do, so how does a prospective student differentiate between them, especially if one is insistent upon getting the best training, of a world-class standard? World-class Training On the one hand, “world-class training” implies to South Africans that the standard of the academy’s curriculum, lecturers, campus facilities and qualifications are at least equal to or better than the best which international schools have to offer their learners who study abroad. Secondly and likewise, in its true sense, the term indicates that successful graduates could or should possess the ability to work anywhere in the world, by virtue of the education and training which they’ve undergone during the course of their studies. Widely Recognised and Accredited Qualifications In the very competitive professional beauty and make up profession, there are three international bodies whose accreditation really matter and they matter a lot, particularly to South Africans who wish to attain qualifications which allow them to work overseas, and have the opportunity to earn a living, be paid in and travel with foreign currency in hand. At our highly regarded beauty, make up design and special effects school in Johannesburg, we’ve ensured that our learners have the opportunity to qualify and comply with local graduation standards through Services SETA, which gives them national recognition within SA. International recognition and accreditation is provided by writing exams for membership of the aforementioned international bodies, which are CIDESCO International (Zurich), ITEC (UK) and City & Guilds (London). CIDESCO’s mission is extensive. Established in 1946, this organisation continuously strives to advance the professional standards, competence and integrity of make up artists, beauty therapists and special effects artists throughout 33 countries, across 5 continents, via 130 worldwide schools. This organisation also fosters closer relationships with professional medical bodies with which beauty and make up design specialists are typically and increasingly engaging during the course of their working careers. Our academy is the only one of its kind in South Africa which is CIDESCO make up accredited. Recognised in more than 38 countries, ITEC courses and acceptance is your passport to an international make up, beauty and complementary therapy career. ITEC is instrumental in setting top-educational standards in these fields. City & Guilds is the world’s largest and most well-known awarding organisation, and our college is proud to have been the first City & Guilds registered school in South Africa. Their range of qualifications is enormous. From 1965 and into the Future Our college has advanced and grown exponentially since its founding in 1965. We now occupy 2 campuses – one in Parktown, Johannesburg, and another in Helderkruin, Roodepoort – where we continue to provide top education and training to some of the country’s best aspiring professional make up artists and beauty specialists.
