Open Doors

I am a graduate hair and make-up artist looking to gain experience, particularly in the high end TV industry.

With experience in hairdressing and styling, in addition to years of on-going make-up training from elite brands and courses, I have built a portfolio of skills that I wish to enhance through trainee opportunities. With an extensive understanding and experience of continuity for television and theatre through work experience from Man Like Mobeen and The Crescent Theatre, I recognise appropriate set etiquette and I am very resourceful in any situation.

My passion and love for hair and make-up is present in every aspect of my work, from creating natural looks suitable for HD cameras to special effects/prosthetic make-up. With assisting experience I naturally take initative and follow direction both creatively and professionally,  but I am also confident to take control and offer valuable input where appropriate. 

*I am flexible with availability for work and have a full sfx, hair and make-up kit and driving license with vehicle access.*
