making over Arg from Towie to look like Tom Cruise in Rock of ages for Closer Magazine

So, last month I received a phone call from celebrity make up artist Natacha Schmitt asking me if I can cut and style a wig for Arg from Towie.

The spec was that we were to make him look like Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages seeing as it was coming out on DVD that week.

The hoot was in London and we was to create two looks, copying poses from the film.

Straight away I got on the phone to Annabelle's Wigs and ordered the relevant wig for me to 'hack' into.

Ready and armed with wig, I set off to the London studio where we was shooting.
Once there, the photographer said that we was recreating a shot where a wind machine was used to blow up the hair behind the head...... but with NO wind machine!  Therefore it was up to me to style and spray the hair so that it looks like it was being blown back with the following result.....
The second shot was to be more face on with the hair styled down and a warmer orange background.

This was a really fun shoot to be a part of with a team of very nice people involved.

1950's hair and make up for secret cinema screening of Grease the musical

Recently I was contacted by two local girls who was going off for a secret cinema screening of Grease the Musical.  They asked if I could do their hair and make up 50's style so that they looked the part! I love doing hair and make up like this as it is so much fun.  I love any make up from the 1920's onwards as woman really knew how to style themselves and how to wear their make up with pride..... that and big red lips!

Art Nude Photo shoot

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form. I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs. It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks; Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold.  Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up. I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan  and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos. The photo above is my favourit
