The Hair and Makeup Academy

Award winning Bridal Hair and Makeup Artist Rachel Lisa Jones is proud to announce the start up of her new and exciting education establishment, The Hair and Makeup Academy in Oxford. 

Having taught at The London College of Fashion UAL since 2011 on both a BA (Hons) course and Fda Hair and Makeup for T.V & Film, Rachel felt that there was a lack of courses in her home town for people to learn vital skills in hair and makeup artistry.
