Make-up and Hair Design Futures at Solent University supports creative investigations enabling you to enter critical dialogue, contributing original insights to the world of beauty ideals; the grotesque, gender politics, creature design and the changing face of body identity.
Based in our industry standard make-up, hair and prosthetics studios, you will work with both practice and theory, and be presented with the principles of speculative and critical design for future bodies using make-up, hair and prosthetics.
Each scenario will allow you to explore the key themes of future focused thinking surrounding the dynamics shaping the body of tomorrow. By showing alternative futures are possible, you will learn how to prototype and demonstrate complex design and application concepts.
After graduation, students can apply for career opportunities at various levels of the creative industries including; design, communication and production positions of brands and organisations in the fashion, beauty, film, performance, design futuring, speculative design industries and beyond.
This degree is also a great foundation if you wish to prepare to pursue your studies to PhD Level.
