ABOUT THE ACADEMY
OFFERING THE HIGHEST STANDARD OF COURSES IN BRIDAL MAKEUP AND HAIRSTYLING
The Academy was founded by me, Kristina Gasperas, a Wedding Industry Awards Judge and previous National Winner for Bridal Makeup. The ethos is to provide top-level, intensive, private tuition for beginners and seasoned professionals alike.
Over the years I’ve had many bridal and special occasion clients, I’ve also enjoyed working on various exciting projects such as celebrity photoshoots, editorials, fashion and beauty shows. This job is my passion, my life and my happiness which I love spreading around. Life is meant to be lived to the full doing what we love the most. I believe that if you do the job that you love, you’ll become great at it. But to become the best you need to have a strong foundation which is where my courses come in.
I attribute a big part of the success of my makeup artistry career to the fact that I was taught privately by one of the best – somebody who inspired me to change my life and provided me with their knowledge and undivided attention in all the intricacies required to master beautiful bridal makeup. I want to share the same knowledge and skills with you and to take the same pride in your success.
The Academy’s hairstyling course tutor is Kasia who has a passion for creating unique and beautiful looking hair and her work can be found gracing many photoshoots, bridal and fashion magazines and catwalk shows.
Working at the highest level in both the fashion and wedding industries she has developed her craftsmanship to expert standard.
Kasia was chosen from thousands of hopefuls to participate in an on-line talent program led by hair icon Sam McKnight. The aim of the program was for Sam and his team to find and develop the most passionate and fearless hair professionals working today. Kasia fits that bill perfectly.
Both of us love nothing more than teaching and sharing our knowledge in how to create the most effective transformations each and every time. Our experience in working with hundreds of happy brides enables us to effectively train our students and enable them to become their very best.
By teaching privately we can completely focus on each one of you to ensure you leave our courses feeling confident in how to create harmonious, red-carpet worthy, flattering looks for every one of your clients so that they feel their most beautiful ever and come back to you again and again.
Please read what our brides and previous students have to say about us in the Testimonials pages.
Each course is tailor-made according to your current knowledge and experience. From complete beginners to working professionals who come to hone their makeup and hair skills with us – these courses are intense and very much hands-on.
Our makeup and hair courses will enable you to reach a professional level so that you can start marketing yourself, taking clients and embark on the career that you’ve dreamed of for so long!
