I have always loved art, colours, shapes, and being creative. Growing up, I realised that I wanted to transfer this passion into hair and make-up. Through my work, I get to enjoy huge satisfaction in making people feel good about themselves in doing what I love.
At 16 I started working at Toni & Guy and became fascinated by the fashion techniques showed daily in cutting, colouring and styling people's hair. I loved the busy, creative environment and the emphasis on keeping up with current trends. After qualifying, before long, I moved up to becoming a Style Director and enjoyed continually updating my skills and knowledge of the fashion industry and transferring that into my work.
During my early working years, I also spent my free time training as a beauty specialist. I enjoyed how closely the skills of hair and beauty were linked, and how this qualification gave me more knowledge and understanding of enhancing a person’s appearance. I knew I was wanting to do more then just hair alone.
In 2015 I completed a professional make-up and session styling course at the Academy of Freelance Make-up in London. Here I learnt more advanced and professional techniques in make up and styling for special events. This enabled me to start working on fashion photography shoots, styling models’ hair and make-up. I have also enjoyed taking part in various fashion events, including London Fashion Week, on both men's and women's shows.
I have a very friendly and professional approach. It’s so important to me that people feel completely comfortable and at ease. My aim is always to ensure clients have an enjoyable experience with me, and that they feel 100% happy and confident with their finished looks, for any occasion.
Please contact me at any time for friendly advice and quotes :)
I am available for all occasions: private events and weddings, photoshoots and shows.
