Best Beauty College Johannesburg

Only Johannesburg’s Best Beauty College is Good Enough

Congratulations! You have thought long and hard before deciding that the beauty industry is the one for you, and this is where you want to build your career and secure your future. Thus, it is hardly surprising that you will strive to be the best beautician in Johannesburg, but begs the question – which college offers the best, specialised education, equal to or surpassing your high expectations? 

Much like you, nothing less than excellence in all that we offer and do is good enough to meet our beauty college’s exacting standards. We continuously strive to be the best beauty, make-up design and special effects training facility in Johannesburg, where we are based, and also throughout South Africa.

Long Tradition and Proud Reputation 

Our academy was founded in 1965 by a lady who was passionate about the beauty industry and sought to improve national standards, whilst bringing the latest international trends and technologies to this country. Her success was taken up by the following generation, keeping ownership and management of this outstanding endeavour in the hands of the same family, with the same passion for excellence.

We are proud to be the only make-up design and special effects school in Africa which is recognised both nationally and internationally. The leading industry bodies which matter most, namely Services Seta, City & Guilds, CIDESCO and ITEC, have granted us accreditation, likewise applicable nationally and/or internationally, making us the longest established college of this type in South Africa.

On successful completion of each year’s studies, students are awarded their locally recognised diploma, conforming to Services Seta’s standards. Thereupon, we actively encourage them to write their London City & Guilds, ITEC and CIDESCO exams, which enables them to accept employment anywhere in the world where the beauty industry is alive, well and thriving – an enormous selection of opportunities.

I am the designated photographer for the only internationally and nationally accredited make-up training institution which is celebrating is 52 years of operation. I love to experiment with the power of photography, specialising in conceptual & fashion, although I love shooting anything that challenges me. I shoot on location but also have my own studio situated in Parktown, Johannesburg.
