Voted by The Stage as one of the “best training routes for getting into hair and make-up for stage and screen”, Brushstroke Make-Up and Hair Academy has been providing students with top quality accredited make-up courses for over 30 years. Brushstroke is accredited to offer BTEC, ITEC and VTCT qualifications and will soon be offering the HND level 5 qualification.

Brushstroke graduate Olivia McMullen said: “I really recommend Brushstroke; the teachers are amazing and I gained so much experience. Since graduating from the 2-year BTEC Make-up and Hair Course, I have worked on ‘MUM’ Series 3 with tutor Juliette Tomes then went straight on to ‘EastEnders’ and I am now working on ‘Call the Midwife.’” Brushstroke has a high success rate of academy alumni going on to have exciting careers within the creative industries, read more success stories like Olivia’s here.
