Hello! I'm Shannon
- a fully qualified, freelance hair and makeup artist with a huge amount of love for what I do.
A little bit about how my hair & makeup journey started:
After studying at London's most prestigious Hair and Makeup institution - The Delamar Academy in Ealing Studios; I gained a Cert HE in Professional Hair and Makeup Design. I went on to build my own business, and then carefully hand pick a team of talented stylists to work with me, to make my mark on the industry.
I’ve been lucky enough to qualify and work in all fields of hair and makeup design, whilst being trained by the top celebrity hair and makeup artists in the industry. I've covered everything from editorial fashion to body-painting, hair styling, wig work, special effects and even prosthetics!
Becoming a Bridal Specialist:
Years later, I'm still hugely passionate about all things hair and makeup, and I've since found a flair for special occasion work - specialising in wedding hair and makeup design. Having styled over a hundred clients each year, I am confident in my skills and hugely experienced at taking care of you on your big day or getting you glammed up before a night out with the girls! I approach all jobs with an open, friendly and calm manner - as it's so important to me that you feel comfortable and at ease whilst I work my magic on you!
Known for my meticulous eye for detail and versatile abilities in styling - I aim to give each client a bespoke experience whilst I create a radiant look to compliment your personal style.
I’m now looking forward to helping you look and feel like the best version of yourself - for any occasion. I use only the best brands in the industry, carefully chosen and always personally tried and tested. I take a huge amount of pride in my kit, which features premium brands such as
Bobbi Brown, Nars, Mac, YSL, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Becca, Hourglass, Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier and many more.
I am based in Southampton, Hampshire - but I focus on the surrounding counties too. I am happy to travel wherever required - including destination weddings!
Please don't hesitate to drop me a message with any questions or enquiries you may have. I hope to hear from you soon!
