– JACQUI


Durban Makeup Artist, Jacqui Trinder decided that after years of providing hair and makeup services to top celebrities, corporate clients and brides – the time had finally come to open her Hair & Makeup School in Kloof, Durban.

After being inundated with requests to teach, the time was right and so she opened the Academy. Since then the Academy has been home to many students who have graduated and gone on to work in the hair and makeup retail industry, full time or most of which who now own their own successful hair and makeup businesses.

In fact our success rate is 100% of students who have left us have used the skills gained on our courses to begin the career of their choice within this industry.

Jacqui Trinder (the Owner) studied her IMA (International Makeup Association) Qualification at London School of Makeup in the UK. Jacqui has over 15 years relevant industry experience having worked at MAC cosmetics on their South African Events Team doing many Fashion weeks. Including Mercedez Benz Fashion weeks in JHB and Cape Town as well as Africa Fashion week where she gained much experience working with different darker skin tones.

Jacqui has travelled extensively world wide doing what she loves – Makeup!

Her experience has stretched as far as Berlin, Canada Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony and London. Jacqui has worked alongside the biggest names in Makeup, where she soaked up their tips and techniques. At MAC, Jacqui was also a Techniques Facilitator, where she taught Makeup techniques as well a a Product Specialist – where she taught ingredients and new makeup trends.

Jacqui is more than well equiped to provide students with the knowledge and information in a safe and homely environment at her Hair & Makeup Academy

Many parents and students ask her “Is there a career to be had in Makeup?”  Her answer is always a loud YES!

Jacqui has a team of 14 artists who work with her on her Accentuate Team
