You will get the entire hair kit for practice that includes all the hair equipment/gadgets like hot rollers, blow dryers, crimping machines, and tongs for practice and exams.

Saree styling techniques are not part of the CIDESCO course but you will learn a variety of draping techniques exclusively at Impression International Academy.

You will have access to a comprehensive make-up kit and hair tools for outdoor shoots too and we will support you to make an attractive portfolio.

If you are busy managing a salon, family, and college studies we offer flexible batches – 2, 3, and 6 days a week – suiting your needs.

We believe in keeping our best foot forward and are the only institute in India with a Learning Management System (LMS) through which you can watch, revise and revisit step-by-step tutorials of bridal make-up, theory, and practical lectures anytime from any location.

Let us see how you can save money, time, and effort. You will save double if you join Impression International Academy for CIDESCO Course since we provide all essential items including the make-up kit and hair equipment kit to our students in the beginning, unlike other academies that ask them to invest in products and equipment for exams during middle stages of learning. We prioritize students’ comfort so 80% of the things are provided by the Impression International Academy. Only 20% of the things have to be carried by students only, like their kajal sticks, brushes, and hygiene kit to class as a precaution against Covid-19. You can keep your make-up kit and hair equipment at the academy so there is no obligation to carry heavy kits to class every day.

Students get a chance to work for fashion shows, beauty pageants, and photo shoots to build a striking portfolio with the academy’s kit and tools.

At Impression International Academy we give students the freedom to practice their art and show it to the world. We allow them to click photographs and build their social media networks.

We introduce you to the following array of products in our 6-day masterclass – NARS Cosmetics, Bobby Brown, Natasha Denona, Charlotte Tilbury, Gucci Foundations, Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez, Urban Decay, Temptu Airbrush, Victoria Secrets, MAC, Tarte – and many more! The list keeps becoming bigger with new products coming into the market every now and then. We teach you to cut crease techniques, Brazilian eye techniques, halo eye techniques, reverse foundation techniques, etc. Other academics don’t intend to teach you about the brands but at Impression International Academy students will get knowledge about and exposure to all these international products including the AirBrush kit so that they are ready for real-life work life in the beauty industry.

The academy also has Doctors on board who give lectures to students for a better understanding of anatomy, physiology, allergies, and reactions to the skin so that they can learn advanced skills to create professional looks in their respective careers.

Director Kalyani Umrani who is a CIDESCO graduate herself has been in this field since 1996. At Impression International Academy she exposes students to hands-on practice by letting them assist on bridal make-up and gives them her personal attention. Investing in an academy wherein the director holds 25+ years of experience is a more secure option rather than investing in a new teacher who has recently completed their studies.

Interested students get maximum exposure by working with Kalyani Ma’am in live bridal assignments.

A student doing a CIDESCO Diploma from Impression can start doing bridal make-up months before actually getting the certification. Unlike students of other academies who have to take additional hair and draping training, our students get this training in our CIDESCO package so that they are career-ready and ahead of other aspirants.

“Like all the ingredients are important to make a perfect cuisine, each product’s quality is important to create a flawless look.”

Kalyani Umrani

There are many institutes that promise you that they will give you a make-up kit for practice but their kits are very limited and substandard. For instance, they will provide students with their own products (that are not necessarily original and first-rate) just for practice and will ask students to bring their own supplies during practical exams. This means that students have to invest their money twice for pursuing one set of courses at other academies. Other academies believe that only students’ practice techniques are important but Impression believes that the quality of products is equally important. We provide Kryolan, Ferrarucci, Maybelline NYX, PAC, Forever 52, and Morphe for regular practice.

“We are aware that you want to commit to something worthwhile and genuine. The good news is that we are confident in our education practices. We challenge you to find another institute that will equip you with original branded products for practice, exams & portfolio, give lessons in 35 hairstyles with hands-on training, teach ideal draping techniques, and has an LMS system with all recorded lectures for unlimited access  – all at the same cost.”

Hairstyling is another practice that has been generalized by many local and seemingly exclusive institutes. At Impression, we teach you 30-35 different hairstyles from which you can always recreate more hairstyles. What does this indicate? In simple words, following a genuine passion and creating limitless possibilities. Once you enroll in the CIDESCO Diploma at Impression International Academy, we will also give you access to all superior quality tools required for hairstyling including – hot rollers, iron, dryers, and tongs. All the equipment is of superior quality and belongs to brands like Ikonic, HNK, Mr. Barber, and Babyliss. All the equipment, again, is provided for 

Practice sessions

Practical exams

Outdoor shows, portfolio building, and other activities

If you are studying in a country like India with diversity spread across the nation you ought to learn the different costume styling techniques for standing out in the market. We will train you in all types of costume styling including, but not limited to – draping Bengali, Nauvari, Rajasthani, and Gujarati saree. It is important to note that the CIDESCO course’s syllabus does not include hair and costume styling yet Impression International Academy has made flexible additions to the syllabus so that students can reap maximum benefits in their careers.

Impression is unique because we support our students in building their portfolios. When you begin a CIDESCO Make-up Diploma we are certain that you have big ambitions set in your mind and heart. Therefore, building a good portfolio will enhance your opportunities in the make-up industry. Impression sows the seeds of possibility so that you can reap the benefits later.

We are the only institute that helps students in gaining hands-on experience and creating the best portfolio for maximum employment and entrepreneurship ventures outside the four-walled classroom.

We upgrade ourselves and adapt to fit into the most recent market demands. We are the only institute in India with an LMS (Learning Management System) that is developed to record and store lectures so that students can get back to them and take references whenever required. This is a flexible mode of instruction for people who find it difficult to adjust the time for physical classes in their daily routine. The LMS contains videos on hairstyles, bridal looks, and theoretical lectures that enable the students to closely monitor tricks and techniques to deliver the best service to clients. So, even if you can’t come to class for one day there are more than 100 lectures for your reference.
