The Hair and make-up artistry industry
UK film, TV and music activities have grown by over 70% in the last three years in value terms (significantly outpacing growth in other EU countries).
The theatrical hair and make-up industry is exciting and fast-paced: there is a need for those with creative flair, attention to detail and fantastic people skills.
A profession in hair and make-up artistry combines techniques from film and television with the conceptual artistry and commercial awareness of fashion and beauty make-up. It can also involve working with clients to discuss their requirements and advising them with creative ideas and solutions.
Skills include applying make-up, body art, prosthetic pieces, hair styling, and client care. Professions include makeup artists and session stylists, as well as hair and make-up specialists for film, TV, theatre and special effects.
