Hair & Makeup Artist
“It is hard to think of a time where I haven’t been fascinated with the transformative powers of cosmetics and beauty. Taking influence from my mum’s love of aromatherapy, around age 6, I was hooked and had become the resident massage therapist to friends, family and pretty much anyone who would sit in my chair!”
Whilst studying beauty therapy, Jo found herself immediately at home with Makeup Artistry and became obsessed with creating natural, enhanced, beautiful, and technically perfect beauty makeup-which has ultimately lead her to the fun, creative and rewarding job she has today.
With over 9 years of beauty, cosmetic and media experience, she began my beauty journey training with some of the biggest brands in cosmetics from Dior, Elemis, and Urban Decay before completing her degree and going solo as a freelancer. Since then she has worked with a variety of brands including Redken, Hellofresh, and William Hill as well as many corporate events and TV shows. She has found no two days are ever the same when part of the glam squad!
Jo feels very privileged to meet, and be part of, some of the most exciting and special times in people’s lives and this is never more relevant than a bride’s wedding day! The interesting and inspiring ladies (and occasional gents) she meets are a huge part of the reason she loves what she does so much.
“As well as my makeup colour obsession – It comes with the job description! – I will have to admit I am a little bit of an ingredient obsessive. It’s not uncommon for me to have several face masks on the go at once, all in the name of market research of course! I currently have 3 at the moment. If you haven’t heard of GlamGlow, you must stop all unnecessary tasks and google right now! Game- Changer.”
“I believe great Makeup starts with great skincare and true to my beauty obsession I can’t help but get excited when clients share their newfound beauty secrets, tips and tricks with me and I get to share mine too!”
We had an amazing day yesterday and it was largely thanks to you for making us all look so stunning. THank you so so much!!
I LOVED my hair and makeup on our big day! It got so many compliments! Thank you so so much - every element felt perfect. My bridesmaids adored their hairstyles, so thank you. The morning prep was a dream and the day itself was stunning.
I am so happy I found you! I honestly loved your work and you as a person.
Thank you so much for being so excellent. We were all very happy with the hair and makeup you provided and you were a very calming influence.
