Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required by performers, such as singers, actors, dancers, circus performers and comedians to apply theatrical make-up and hairstyles for performances according to make-up and hair plans. Performances could be in commercial, competition or community settings.
At this level, performers would usually work without supervision and are expected to apply initiative and judgement in the planning and selection of appropriate tools and techniques. They may also be assisting other performers.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Elements

  • 1. Clarify theatrical make-up and hair requirements for performances
  • 2. Implement make-up plans
  • 3. Create hairstyles for performances
  • 4. Finalise make-up and hairstyle process

Performance Evidence

- clarify theatrical make-up and hair requirements for performances
- apply theatrical make-up to create effective characterisation for at least two performances
- create hairstyles in line with hair design plans
- maintain continuity by recreating designs on consecutive occasions
- implement skin and hair care management strategies
- work collaboratively.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided for each of the above points at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements the individual must:

- demonstrate knowledge of:
- work health and safety (WHS) requirements when applying theatrical make-up for performances
