Training at Nicci Welsh Make-up Academy will provide you with all the skills you need to pursue any line of make-up or hair work; from fashion and advertising over TV and music to celebrity and event work. But couldn’t you gain the same expertise somewhere else? We don’t believe so. Here’s why.

A comprehensive education
The Nicci Welsh training programme enables you to work professionally as a hair and make-up artist. Mastering both hair and make-up is a basic requirement for a working career in most cities other than the fashion and film capitals London, New York, Paris, Milan and LA, where hair and make-up are hired as two separate capacities. The Academy education also teaches you techniques for all media and live situations. You will learn what is important for fashion print media and for achieving the perfect look even on HD digital film. In short, the NWM Academy prepares you for the very best start to your career and helps you make the choices needed to find your own niche.

Complete versatility, full expertise
The Nicci Welsh Event Team is the only hair and make-up team in Denmark that masters all areas of the industry. It is very rare for someone who works with both hair and make-up to gain access into one of the most competitive areas of the business; international high fashion. But Nicci Welsh has both entered it and received its recognition as an authority within both fields. Her teams get booked for on-schedule fashion shows and her editorials demonstrate her applied dual expertise. Training at the Nicci Welsh Academy, you will gain access to the same versatility of skills without compromising the level of expertise you develop. It is a unique industry advantage.

Professional tools

Our courses are supported by some of the industry’s best professional brands such as MAC, Bobbi Brown and Oribe haircare. It is important that you train with a variety of the very best products in order to experiment at the very highest level. With us, you will have a full range of both make-up and haircare products which we train with and apply in challenging set ups taking you all the way to the advanced, professional level of expertise.

Career advantages
With the quality stamp of a NWM Academy education, the industry will recognise your training level as advanced. No industry standards exist when it comes to hair and make-up education, but the NWMA graduates now working professionally within the industry and in the Nicci Welsh Event Teams have set a standard that is both recognised and in high demand. Assistant positions within the Nicci Welsh Teams are of course limited but the most remarkable students are always considered. Furthermore, Personal Make-up Artists for special 1:1 private events have just been added to the event portfolio and NWMA graduates will be considered for representation.
