Dani Guinsberg talks to students at a Hair and Makeup School open day

Dani speaking with students about life as a professional makeup artist during an Open Day

“Take it from me, life as a professional makeup artist is incredibly rewarding, and allows you the freedom to be your own boss. From hair styling for celebrities to designing makeup for catwalk shows and working with leading photographers, whatever your goal is, The Session School makeup school can help you get there.”
Dani Guinsberg, MUA and founder of The Session School

The Session School, London was founded by the multi-talented makeup artist and hairstylist, Dani Guinsberg. “When I set up the school in 2008, I had 17 years of experience as a working hair and makeup artist, and I wanted to share some of the amazing knowledge that I had gained and to develop courses that really would train makeup artists to be ready for the real world” says Dani. It’s her insider knowledge, years of experience and the fact that she knows what it takes to be successful that sets The Session School apart from most of the other makeup schools out there.

Dani continues to work in the industry and her work can be seen in magazines and advertising campaigns around the world. It’s this passion and professionalism that Dani brings to The Session School, which is structured to offer personalised tuition to small numbers of students in a very intimate environment. This “boutique-style” setting is what Dani believes her students love and it’s what makes the school so successful.

“My hair and makeup school provides expert training for students who are serious about a career in professional hair and makeup and who want to work in the Fashion, Photographic, Media, Advertising, Bridal and Beauty industries. Students love our light and airy studio, and the warm, friendly atmosphere. Above all, they love working with our teachers (I am one of the tutors) who are focused on producing qualified, confident professionals who leave the makeup school prepared for work. And if English is not your first language, we even have a course which allows you to learn English with our friends at Berlitz, London, alongside your chosen course in hair or makeup.”

The Session School not only offers students the opportunity to be trained by some of the industry’s top hair and makeup artists but also provides students with support, and the assurance that they are getting the very best training, with plenty of one-to-one tuition. We have many success stories and are delighted that our students recommend us so highly – do check out our testimonials!

All the makeup courses have been expertly created by Dani to cater for all levels, from beginner to advanced. Dani also employs teachers that really care about the success of the students, and the makeup school provides an excellent aftercare service for graduates.

“We consider that aftercare is part of an ongoing responsibility to our students, and we do our best to make sure that they continue to build their career after they leave us. We secure many exciting jobs and opportunities, including photo shoots and working backstage at fashion shows, for our graduates.”

What’s also extremely important is that there are NO hidden extra costs involved in The Session School’s hair and makeup course fees. All materials are provided and discounts for many makeup and skincare brands are offered as part of the course fee. Each student is also given a full hair or makeup kit to keep. For full details of the kits, please email us: info@thesessionschool.com.
