GlamCandy are overjoyed to announce the opening of our newest location: Aberdeen!
GlamCandy Aberdeen will soon be opening to welcome a new selection of students for the February term.
After the incredible success of opening GlamCandy Dunfermline, we are eager to see the same result in Aberdeen.
Our new studio will be opening in February 2019, located at 99-105 Holburn Street, Aberdeen. We expect to train up to a whopping 200 students in our first year.
Managing Director and co-owner, Hayley Harvey-Smith said, “Our new college will allow us to offer a wide range of courses to our students, as well as state-of-the-art facilities.
“Everyone who completes our professional level courses receives superb tuition from our extremely talented tutors and a portfolio of work making them immediately employable.
“With our photography studio in our Aberdeen location, our students will have the chance to have their work featured in our national magazine that is launching next year.
“Giving them the chance to build their portfolio is massively important in terms of employability – that is always our focus.”
Julian Kynaston, co-owner of GlamCandy and founder of cosmetics brand Illamasqua said, “There’s a misconception that makeup is easy and that anyone can do it.
“The internet – online tutorials and the like – is possibly responsible for that.
“The truth is, it is an incredible skill and once practiced professionally and correctly it is a very, very powerful tool and can be an amazing career that can take you as far as you want to go.”
Kynaston is confident that the expansion of GlamCandy to Aberdeen will help the students of Scotland immensely in kickstarting their careers in the beauty industry.
GlamCandy’s HNC courses not only accredit students with an SQA qualification, but set them at the top of the industry with a professional portfolio and ample networking opportunities.
GlamCandy will also be opening a cosmetics shop on the Aberdeen premises, offering the sale of luxury brands such as Illamasqua, Kryolan, and Karla Powell.
