Our professional private training style means we take small classes to ensure success in every avenue of your make-up journey. We have trained make-up artists at Top Billing, Expresso, Afternoon Express and Pasella.

Head to Toe offers current, internationally compliant, make-up artistry and hair styling training. We are proud to be South Africa’s first private premier make-up academy. We have small classes, despite of our renowned brand, to ensure quality education.

Lecturers are active in the industry!

Our lecturers work on high profile jobs like fashion week, television shows, international fashion and lifestyle shoots, as well as working with celebrity clients on a daily basis. This allows them to remain relevant in the industry and gives them the ability to not only stay up to date with the latest trends, but effectively “practice what they preach” and not just sit in a classroom

We give our students the best opportunities possible and train them for success and high profile industry life! Our students reap the benefits of our dedication to the industry.

We offer work experience opportunities to successful Head to Toe students and graduates on jobs such as fashion shoots, weddings, commercials, magazine editorials and celebrity events. We also stay in contact with all our graduates and call on them when we pass on work to help them build their portfolios and get their names out there.

We also facilitate successful artist placement at cosmetic stores nationwide such as M.A.C, Inglot, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Estee Lauder, Jo Malone Beauty, Tom Ford Beauty, La Mer, Clinique and Woolworths Beauty. Our association with M.A.C cosmetics makes us their school of choice from which to recruit artists. This is the perfect way to get the ball rolling on your new career!

Supportive Environment

Our students are our incredibly importance to us and we will go the extra mile to ensure they are taught in a supportive environment. When our director Aliki studied as a make-up artist she felt that a school needed to offer more and so she decided that her private make-up school would have a work experience and job placement offering to train students in the field. She believes in sharing her trade secrets and wants her graduates to feel confident and prepared for their first solo jobs.

As a result, she has built her business around this ethos and we make it our goal to not only teach, but show our students how to present themselves, what is expected of them, how to be professional in different industry situations and prepare them for real live jobs are like.
