Thinking of enrolling on a hairstyling course to run alongside makeup artistry?

Hairstyling and Makeup Artistry go hand in hand. Like any career choice, you should consider your education from an investment perspective. Many beauty professionals are masters of both trades. Getting a second certification on your resume is a chance to double your earning potential and increase client prospects.

  • If you’re a makeup artist you’ve probably had clients, ask you about hairstyling. For them, it’s a bonus if their makeup artist is a one-stop shop.
  • If you are wanting to apply to a salon or business, being double certified allows you to offer your skills in both areas of Hair and Makeup– Employers love the fact you are able to fill more than 1 role as it saves them having to hire twice and also allows the advertisement of you as a full service beauty expert.
  • Income wise you will be able to offer both individual services and packages. Being qualified in both hair and makeup essentially means you will have two professions. In the UK, Makeup Artists earn approximately £35 per hour, translating to a yearly salary of around £70,000. Adding a hairstyling certification will allow you to increase this number through offering more services and being able to accept more jobs.
