January workshop spaces filled within 24 hours

Spaces filled quickly for our January workshop. 15 designers, supervisors and makeup artists from Northern Ireland and Scotland joined us in Glasgow to observe demonstrations and masterclasses.


Then our artists got hands on experience with models of colour - practicing the hairdressing techniques shown by Calma Richie, and makeup application and how to accurately fit fine lace film wigs as demonstrated by Nic Collins.  

“Great information, learnt a lot and came away more confident. Felt very comfortable with the ladies and good environment in the room. Hope to do more with you in the future. 

"Thoroughly enjoyed working with live models. as previous courses did not have this."


I enjoyed and learned so much textured hair always scared me but now I am much more confident,  perfect course.

Annie Little Hair Arts in association with Nic Collins present BLCKSTR - a series of hair and makeup workshops, sponsored by ScreenSkills HighEnd TV Fund.

Past Workshop

I was invited to Dresden Fine Arts University to help final year HMUA students understand how to work with hair and make up on people of colour.

For 3 days, artists who had never touched textured hair before nor for many, never interacted with many people of colour - this was an experience.


 Both models and artists didn't want to, and wouldn't leave the class at the end of each day. They were having fun, were ambitious and wanted to work.
