My Story

 
For the last 19 years I’ve been working in the hair and beauty industry, my career has been extremely varied which has kept things fresh and exciting.
 
I started out studying hair and professional makeup along with art at collage in Essex, this included photographic film and TV makeup. From there i got a job with a top London stylist working in TV, fashion, and the production of photographic collections for competitions such as the British hairdressing awards. I feel extremely lucky to work in such a fun and creative field interacting with lots of interesting people.
 
Cruise ships are where my love for dressing hair and applying makeup for special occasions grew, it’s such a wonderful thing to be able to transform someone’s look.

 

Everyone has a natural beauty and something unique about them so it’s my job to enhance those features and create a natural but flawless finish. The best part of this for me is making people feel happy confident and look beautiful.

After my experience on ships I worked in all different areas, as a session stylist on fashion shows, at exhibitions such as Britons Next Top Model, launch show for Versace, in house stylist for AH Image Studio London, independent makeup artist at Harrods and Selfridges, I was also as a Trainer for L’Oreal teaching hairdressing.
 
Throughout my career I always continue to work on weddings as it’s what I love the most. I feel like I’m really making a difference, making someone look and feel amazing for their special day is such an honour.

 

For the past few years I have been based in Essex and have concentrated mostly on weddings and photographic work. My passion as a wedding hair and makeup artist has taken me to some extremely glamorous venues such as Claridges, Mandarin Oriental and the Savoy in London, also some Beautiful venues all over Essex, Kent and Sussex, such as Gosfield Hall, Leeds Castle and The Grand Hotel. I have traveled to exotic locations including India and the Cayman Islands at the request of my brides to ensure they look beautiful and feel amazing on their wedding day.

Last year I came to the Costa del Sol for my friend Kate’s wedding at the Keminski Hotel Estepona. Such a beautiful venue for a wedding and of course the sun was shining! I spent the morning air brushing makeup and creating hair-up styles for Kate and seven bridesmaids, they looked stunning especially Kate of course. It was a wonderful day and evening and got me thinking… This is the place for me!

 
Places covered are…
Costa del sol, Marbella, Nuevo Andalusia, San Pedro, Estepona, Manilva, Sabinillas, Duquesa, Sotogrande, Alcadesa, Gibraltar, San Martin del tesorillo, Malaga, La Cala de mijas, Fuengirola, Mijas, Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Nerja and Motril 
 
 
So this year 2016 with much excitement I have decided to relocate to the Costa del Sol. I will be available for wedding hair and makeup, hen parties or any special occasion at any location along the coast and of course I will still fly to any other destination if requested.
 
My style is varied I love to create all different looks from boho, loose relaxed up-styles to romantic soft cascading curls and waves, Hollywood red carpet glamour is also a favorite look for me – sleek and flawless.
 
All of the products i use are of the highest quality and am MAC pro registered.
I’m also trained in Airbrush makeup.
