The Japanese culture is so that our students don't know how things are done elsewhere. This custom program at the Paris Academy enables them to learn new things, to meet another culture and to open up. For them, France is Paradise!

Dany's performance for a Japanese group

On Tuesday 26th November, the Paris Academy hosted a group of Japanese Makeup students. Dany was here to perform half a Body Painting.

The Japanese culture is so that our students don't know how things are done elsewhere. This custom program at the Paris Academy enables them to learn new things, to meet another culture and to open up. For them, France is Paradise!

Every once in a while, the Paris Academy welcomes groups of Japanese students for a custom program at the Paris Academy. This was the case on Tuesday and we got a chance to chat with Mr Kazuhiro Takashima, Project Manager based in France for Belle Epoque College of Beauty.
Mr Takashima started organizing this training for students way back in 1998 when he was at the time working at Le Printemps. His wish to set up these small trainings was driven by the renowned quality of the brand and Dany & her Makeup Artists team convinced him to set up special classes for Japanese beauty schools.

His new position at the Belle Epoque College corresponds to the Academy's creation. He has had plenty of time to get to know Dany and trust MAKE UP FOR EVER's Makeup Artists. He now sends more than 50 students each time at the Paris Academy, who learn Hair and Makeup in Japan. This training is in no way mandatory as each student pays for the travel and accomodation expenses. Seeing though how numerous they are, we can only but enquire what his students are expecting from this training. "The Japanese culture is so that our students don't know how things are done elsewhere. This custom program at the Paris Academy enables them to learn new things, to meet another culture and to open up. For them, France is Paradise!"

As Dany magnified the model's body with colors and glitters, students expressions got more and more enthusiastic. Body Painting is fairly rare in Japan: this is a great opportunity for these students to be familiar with Artistic Makeup. They also get from their trip a new vision of Makeup artistry. Indeed, their training in Japan is bound to be different to ours, as makeup techniques vary with face shapes and colors. And what better way to learn than with a Pro? "The aim of our education is to allow our students to go abroad to learn, to understand the differences." These students are future pros who will spread their artistry as well as knowledge of different cultures - a valuable asset on today's job market.

At the end of our chat, we were delighted to hear that one student from his College actually came back to France and is now a student of the Academy's Long Training program!
