“Should I hire a hair and makeup artist for my photoshoot”, is a question I have seen being asked more and more often both in real life and on various social media platforms. As the trend for having lifestyle event photo shoots grow, so does the interest in hiring a hair and makeup artist for the shoot.

As 2020 saw the wedding industry grind to halt, with couples having to rearrange their weddings, a growing trend emerged of couples choosing to have wedding photography sessions to mark what should have been their big day.

Couples were choosing to put on that wedding dress or suit, and of course to help them look and feel amazing most were also hiring a hair and makeup artist for their wedding photography sessions.

However, it wasn’t just brides and grooms who were hiring hair and makeup artists for their photography session.

There was also an increase in people using a “glam squad” including hair and makeup artists to help them get ready for professional photos for work, personal branding photography sessions, family pictures, engagement photoshoots, couples photoshoots and of course advertising photoshoots as well.

So if you have a photography session coming up and are looking for a hair and makeup artist, then I would love to help.

I have over a decades experience both here and in New Zealand, where I was voted Hairdresser Of The Year.

I love what I do, hair and makeup isn’t just my job, it’s my passion. I’ve been honoured to get to work with some amazing people in my time in the industry, from wonderful brides to celebrities such as Sienna Miller and Rosamund Pike.

My work has taken me not to only the UK and New Zealand but Paris and Milan and my work has been featured in Vogue.

More than anything else though, what I’m most proud of is the number of clients who come back to me time and time again, or who recommend me to their family and friends.

As a mobile hair and makeup artist, I am happy to travel, some of the areas I cover are London, including places like Chelsea and then Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Suffolk, Surrey, Essex, Norfolk, Hampshire, Sussex, Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
