About Us


Hello and welcome to the International School of Hair & Make-Up (ISHM). We are proud to be Leicester’s first internationally certified, fully independent make-up school offering individuals the chance to develop their career on a global scale. All of our courses are accredited by the International Make-Up Association (IMA), which carries great weight across the world.

We set exceptionally high standards from the offset for all our students and a large part of this stems from our expert teaching panel. In addition to a team of regular local and national industry leaders, we also have a team of highly acclaimed international celebrity make-up artists who our students have the privilege of learning from, making the courses ideal for both aspiring and existing industry professionals, looking to take the next step in their careers.

Our team is led by Founder and Director of ISHM; Meera Kotecha. Meera has a wealth of industry experience having worked with leading global brands Benefit and MAC, while working across a range of different events enabling her to master theatrical, bridal, editorial and special effects make-up as well as developing her skills in hair dressing. She has since launched a successful salon and is forever in-demand with brides across the UK.
