Afro hair course from the Iver Academy


This 2 day course is the perfect introduction to hair curl types  3a to 4c . You will learn to recognise the different hair types and gain an understanding of which products are best to use. You will practise on both dolly heads and models to allow 2 full days of practical experience. Applicants will be required to have basic hair skills before they start the course.


If you have some working credits on feature films or some equivalent evidence of a body of related work you will most likely be eligible to apply for one of the two bursaries below (Theatre or TV work can be applicable if you are looking to transfer your skills to also work in Film).

Funding for Film Training

Course Payment: A full payment is required to secure a place on any make-up course. We have several options to help fund your make-up course including interest free payment plans, bursaries, and loans.

Please note that we regrettably have limited places for this course, so it is advisable to apply for your course early to avoid disappointment.


Course Tutors


All the course tutors  have amassed years of experience working with the latest products and techniques used in today’s industry. Our tutors regularly work in the TV, Film and Fashion industries and you will be learning from them in the friendly, informal atmosphere of our practical, hands-on training workshops. As we’re based at Pinewood Studios, our studios are right in the heart of the UK’s film industry, so there really is no better place to immerse yourself in the craft.

All our class demonstrations are projected onto an HD screen, allowing every student to have a close-up view of the action. Students are encouraged to practice all the new techniques they learn with our tutors, who will then view & assess their finished work on an HD screen under studio lighting conditions. Our tutors will then provide constructive feedback on each completed task to help students learn and improve their skills.
