I'm excited to now offer bespoke hair and makeup lessons at my studio in Southampton, or in the comfort of your own home. These can be booked in for an individual to be taught on a 1-2-1 basis with me, or if it's something you would rather make a day of and do in a group with your girls then I also offer lessons in a class setting where you can each work on one other (this is a popular option for my brides-to-be as part of their hen party!).
For the 1-2-1 lessons, as we go through the booking process I will give you a few options of the different kind of lessons you can choose from depending on what it is you're interested in learning. Please see a few of these options below. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any further questions or if you'd like to check prices or get booked in.
Lesson Idea 1:
Quite often there will be one specific thing that you might struggle with and you would love to learn the technique behind tricky applications such as brows, winged eyeliner, or highlighting and contouring for example. Even if it's as simple as wanting to learn how to quickly style your hair on a a day-to-day basis, I can teach you the secrets behind a loose beach wave, or a more precise glamorous wave. Whatever it is you might struggle with, we can do a short lesson (45 minutes) where you choose the focus and you leave having mastered the art behind that specific styling or application technique.
Lesson Idea 2:
My most popular lesson for the majority of people is to learn a full basic makeup application. I allow an hour and a half for this lesson - as we go through every single step it takes to create a flawless makeup, covering every product and technique required to perfectly apply this 'everyday' style of makeup. I recommend this lesson to anybody looking to learn the all important basics of makeup artistry, and especially to those looking to freshen up their very own take on an 'everyday' look. I cover everything you will need to know, with the steps including:
- Skincare and prepping the skin
- A quick skin analysis and understanding how to know the right products to use for your skin type
- Every step of creating the perfect flawless base - with all the touches such as concealer, bronzer, blush and highlight
- How to shape and define your eyebrows to naturally compliment your face shape and overall desired look
- The basics of eye makeup application - designed to enhance the colour and shape of your eyes
- Specific techniques behind each application - such as blending, detailing and understanding colour options
- How to use the tools behind the application - learning all you need to know about makeup brushes and sponges
- The finishing touches such as lips, mascara and powder
- The secret to setting your makeup in place perfectly - ensuring it lasts all day and night!
Lesson Idea 3:
This is the ideal option for makeup enthusasts! In this 2 hour lesson we cover everything that is taught in lesson 2, with an added bit of glam! I will ensure you know all the basics to create a flawless makeup application - listed above, however we will also go over in depth the techniques behind bolder and more dramatic makeup looks. If you're looking to learn the skills behind doing an 'evening' look, or if bold brows, contour, lashes and glitter are your thing - then this might just be the lesson for you. I will focus on whatever trends you have in mind that you'd like to master - these may include styles such as carving out brows, strong wing liner, cut creases, smokey eyes, or full highlight and contour.
In addition to teaching lessons, I'm now offering further training for hair and makeup artists (of any skill level) who are looking to brush up on their skills or learn some new tips and tricks. This is ideal for those with the basic knowledge of the art - who are interested in furthering their skills to make a career as a hair and makeup artist. This is also designed for artists who possibly trained a while ago, but may be struggling to keep up with the current hair and makeup trends out there - we can use this training as a refresher session to focus on the areas you now want to learn.
These training lessons are designed to cover whatever skills you feel you'd most like to improve upon - from natural bridal makeup, to more dramatic and glamorous application techniques - such as asian inspired makeup. Similarly for hair, I can train you from the basics of hair styling - such as the different methods of curling - to more elaborate avant-garde hair styles or bridal updo's.
