The Academy was founded by me, Kristina Gasperas, a Wedding Industry Awards Judge and previous National Winner for Bridal Makeup. The ethos is to provide the industry gold standard of intensive, private tuition for beginners and seasoned professionals alike.

Over the years I’ve had many bridal and special occasion clients, I’ve also enjoyed working on various exciting projects such as celebrity photoshoots, editorials, fashion and beauty shows. This job is my passion, my life and my happiness which I love spreading around.

Life is meant to be lived to the full doing what we love the most. I believe that if you do the job that you love, you’ll become great at it. But to become the best you need to have a strong foundation which is where my courses come in.

I attribute a big part of the success of my makeup artistry career to the fact that I was taught privately by one of the best – somebody who inspired me to change my life and provided me with their knowledge and undivided attention in all the intricacies required to master beautiful bridal makeup…

…I want to share the same knowledge and skills with you and to take the same pride in your success.


The Academy’s hairstyling course tutor is Kasia who has an incredible talent and passion for creating unique and beautiful looking hair.

Her work can be found gracing many photoshoots, bridal and fashion magazines as well as catwalk shows (and royalty… but shhh!)

Working at the highest level in both the fashion and wedding industries she has developed her craftsmanship to expert standard.

She specialises in working with a huge variety of hair types, textures, and lengths – knowing the right products to use including how and when to apply real hair extensions.

Kasia was chosen from thousands of hopefuls to participate in a talent program led by hair icon Sam McKnight, the aim of which was to find and develop the most passionate and fearless hair professionals working today…

…Kasia fits that bill perfectly.

She’ll share with you the tips, tricks and techniques that have made her the renowned hairstylist she is today.
