So, you’ve loved makeup for years, you’ve got a full professional set, you are THE go-to hair girl on nights out with your friends and you’ve done makeup for someone’s special event more than once. You’re ready to make this a career!
A question you might find yourself asking is…is a HMUA course even worth it? Why, when you’ve got the skills already and no one has ever complained? Let me stop you there. The answer is always…YES!
It’s so worth it to get a professional MUA course under your belt before going it alone, and here’s why.
A Solid Foundation
There’s no point in nailing all the trimmings if your base isn’t set (see what I did there?). A HMUA course teaches you everything from how to correctly clean your kit between clients, to how best to address different skin types. It’s not all about cut-creases. Nail the basics before hitting the ground running.
Your friends and family have never had a bad word to say about your hair and makeup skills, and it’s not to say that your technique is poor. However, a professional can cast an eye over what you’re doing and not only assess it, but improve it.
New and Sharpened Skills
You know what you know, but what you don’t know is endless. Take it from someone who’s been in the industry for many years – there’s a lot! Take it all on board and enhance your skill set with new and classic techniques learned from others. It only serves to make you more attractive to new clients.
Access to Models / New Products
A professional HMUA course gives you a gateway to using new products you may never have encountered before, as well as allowing you access to people with different skin types or hair types than you’ve ever worked on before. Again, adding this to your skill set only enhances your artistry. It also allows you to step out of your comfort zone.
Let’s face it, everyone is more likely to go with a HMUA who has a qualification or certification! Gain this while learning practical skills. And don’t forget, once you’ve got it, you’ve got it!
