"I really can't recommend Iver enough, it is an amazing school where you learn so much and make friends for life. In my opinion it really is the best way to start your career in Hair and Makeup." Jenny Watson - Graduate

Some of the work Jenny has done since graduating- trainee make-up and hair artist on Harlots TV Drama,Darkest Hour, Feature Film and Peaky Blinders.

"Things have been hectic since leaving The Iver Make-up Academy and I would like to say thank you. Your academy is a creative and supportive space which gave me energy to keep going. Thank you all for helping me on this path –" Nabeel Hussain - Graduate

Some of the work Nabeel has done since graduating from The Iver Make-up Academy includes; Stan and Ollie feature film,  Holmes and Watson feature film, Matilda the stage show, Judy feature film and Men in Black, feature film.

"What drew me to the Iver Make-up Academy, was not only the curriculum but the fact that all of the tutors have had extensive careers in the industry and are still active makeup and hair artists."

"The on-going support I receive is phenomenal. I have spoken to many other artists in the industry who trained elsewhere, and they receive little or no help after completing their course. I still feel I can call up, or pop in to ask for help and advice – without fail, it is given with enthusiasm and care."

I am confident that I wouldn’t be in the position I am, without the calibre of training and support the Iver Make-up Academy provided."
