Suzy Hill - Under 18’s 1 week SFX summer school
After a number of years I decided to finally take the plunge and enroll on a professional makeup course. I had heard of BAMM so checked out some reviews and their website and I will never look back. Every course receives the very highest level of training and you are in brilliant hands with Mel she is absolutely lovely and knows all there is to know about hair and makeup, the industry and also how to get your new business started. My advice is look no further and book one of these courses!
Life changing! After working 10 years in radio marketing – taking a leap of faith and studying on the Peter King course was the best decision I ever made. The Principle Mel, is knowledgable and insightful when it comes to working in the industry and on top of that is one of the loveliest poeple I know. Both herself and Stacey (who is also wonderful) made me feel so welcome.
The tutors for each module are second to none and are all currently working in the industry. This kind of tutoring is priceless and you couldnt ask for more. These have been the best 15 weeks of my life and Im so excited to now take the next step knowing that Mel and all at BAMM are there to support me 🙂 xVictoria Beynon - The Peter King Television & Film Makeup Course
My daughter did the U18s Special FX course last week and it was absolutely fantastic. Even better than we could have imagined. So professional, but also very welcoming and incredibly friendly. My daughter would live here if she could! Thank you Mel, for making it such a special week. You have been a huge inspiration to G and I have no doubt you will see her again very soon!Victoria Hill-Sweet - Under 18’s TV, Film & SFX Taster day 2018
I had the best 1 on 1 bridal refresher day today with Mel and my perfect model Sarah. My confidence has soared already and I can’t wait to get back in the salon and get started!! Mel is a great teacher, so knowledgeable and patient. Will definitely be returning in the future. Thanks for all your help xSophie Oakley - Bridal Refresher Training - May 2018
I recently completed my training at Bath Academy of Media Makeup, attending the ‘Peter Swords King 16 week course’.
I left university where I was doing makeup to be on this course, and it was the best decision I ever made!
It truly is the best course of it’s kind available! I cannot recommend it enough, everything is so well thought out from our incredible kits, to the class lay out, to the course content. I want to thank all of the tutors my amazing experience, and the continued support even since I have finished. I’ve already had some work assisting a fashion makeup artist, and I couldn’t have gotten the position without this training and your references. Thank you all so much! xx
Annabel Clark-Clements - Peter Swords King Tv & Film Makeup Course - September 2018
Firstly, the academy is a fantastic place to learn and develop new skills. I completed the bridal hair and make-up course back in January. I absolutely loved it and learnt so much. My tutors were Stacey, Mel and Kim, all were fantastic and shared so much of their knowledge with us.
We got a great kit filled with Bobbi Brown & MAC products. Also included were tools for the hairstyles and an airbrush kit. We had two professional photoshoots which were great for my portfolio.
I enjoyed the course so much and felt so inspired that I’m going back to do the Peter King course. I’m excited and looking forward to learning so much more!

The most amazing thing I have ever done!! I attended the fashion and catwalk makeup course. Amazing people that helped me all the way through the process from when I emailed in about being interested till the day I did my course! Amazing teachers and just such lovely people. I learnt so much in such a short time that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Would recommend highly to anyone thinking about a career in the makeup industry. Echo Poutney - Fashion Makeup Course
I cannot recommend more highly the experience that I had at BAMM. The course is a fantastic start into the make up industry. The course ran so smoothly and covered so many areas that it has been invaluable experience. Mel has so many contacts in the industry that she is happy to put her students in contact with and she strives to find employment after the course for everyone. I cannot believe how well I am now doing and it is all thanks to BAMM!!Jessica Savory - Peter Swords King Course
“BAMM’s Intensive Media Makeup Course gave me a wonderful introduction into the world of Hair and Makeup. I gained so many new skills and was introduced to new crafts that I would otherwise be ignorant to.
BAMM ensured I had 3 weeks of work experience within local theatres as soon as I had finished my course that gave me a great introduction to the world of a working makeup artist.
I believe the high standard of the tutors are what makes BAMM stand out, without their help and support, before during and after my time at BAMM I would have been lost, so for that I thank them all. (nataliesimone-milne.com)”Natalie Simone Milne – The Peter King Television and Film Makeup Course
“I Recently completed the intensive media make up course at BAMM and I can Honestly say it changed my life, not only did I learn numerous skills and get the opportunity to work with some of the most skilled people within this profession. I also gained a family who helped me build my confidence that I had lost. I am so excited to be working and doing something I love. The school has been incredibly helpful towards my career and I strongly recommend anyone thinking about make up to do this course. It has been inspirational and a brilliant journey” Victoria James – The Peter King Television and Film Makeup Course
“From the moment I went to visit BAMM and spoke to Melanie I knew it was where I wanted to study media makeup. For me the passion seen by Mel not only for her school but for the love of the makeup industry was a key selling point.
Once on the course, I was really excited to be taught by so many key makeup artists; it made such a difference having professional tutors who are currently in the industry. Not only did it enable us to pick up on relevant tips but also gave us a massive stepping stone in making some great contacts for when we finished.
The school, was really helpful in sending out lots of work experience offers too, which is how I got my first job working on a small independent film. However, it was not much longer than 3months before I was doing work experience on a big film in London with Simon Pegg and Joanna Lumley.
Since then BAMM have continued to send through work experience including an amazing opportunity to work on ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’. I honestly could not recommend BAMM more, they were and still are so supportive to each of their students individually.

“Summer 2013 I travelled from North Yorkshire every weekend down to Bath for ten weekends to complete the Fashion, Bridal and Beauty Course. Since I qualified at the start of September 2013 I have created my own website (jesspaceymua.co.uk), logo, business cards, connected with other businesses for advertisement, built up my portfolio, and in January 2014 I launched my own make-up business. I have already booked many weddings and getting some for 2015 already!
Melanie was an amazing tutor, she went through everything in detail and showed me how to make the looks the best they could be, throughout the course Mel was approachable and helpful, and in the last weekend gave me pages of ideas how to get set up and get my name out there, I am still working on some now! I have a wide range of images in my portfolio thanks to Mel and guest tutors, Body Art weekend being one of my favourites! Melanie has also lined up a few jobs for me since I graduated; I have worked on a music video set and backstage at a fashion show!
I had the BEST summer at BAMM! I would definitely recommend! Melanie was super supportive and still is, I feel so much more confident within myself even my family and friends have noticed. I am now starting a job that I love thanks to Melanie and BAMM”Jess Pacey – Fashion Hair & Editorial
“Thank you so much for this amazing experience, I have loved every minute. You have been an amazing teacher and really inspired me, I can’t wait to get going with it all now and put my new acquired skills in to practice – it’s amazing how much we have learned in such a small time frame.”Adrienne Wright – Fashion Hair & Editorial
“Just a little thank you. This has truly been the best experience of my life and one that will change it forever. I never imagined I would be capable of everything you have taught me.”Amber Ralf – Fashion Hair & Editorial
“I loved the bridal hair and makeup course and without it I would not have been able to take my first steps into the industry, not only because I learned the basic skills which I need to hone to be successful but also because of the experience of meeting the course tutors, most of whom still work in the industry and were really inspirational. I found the tutors’ advice invaluable and I will carry it with me through my career. Since finishing the course I have been doing lots of work experience, including working on weddings, community theatre, and fashion shows. Most of the work experience I have done has been through introductions by the Academy, again something which I would not have been able to do without doing the course first. If a career in hair and make-up is right for you,BAMM is definitely the place to do it! (vanessarolland.weebly.com)” Vanessa Rolland – Bridal Hair & Makeup Course
