Holly is a highly skilled, professionally trained, award winning bridal hair and makeup artist with over 11 years of experience in the wedding industry. Holly has had continual training throughout her career keeping her up to date and on trend with the latest techniques and associated skills. Holly continually researches and participates in on-line tutorials, she attends workshops, courses, top events and is of course continually designing and creating bespoke styles of her own. Holly's hair and makeup training has encompassed a wide and varied range of skills. Holly was originally professionally trained by Brushstroke Hair & Makeup School at Shepparton Studios, London and at this amazing school Holly was trained for the television, film, theatre and fashion industry, covering hair and makeup skills for period styling, high fashion, editorial shoots, fashion campaigns, fashion houses, catwalk, music videos, red carpet events, celebrity clients, airbrushing, wig making, special effects and prosthetic sculpting. Holly is also trained to a senior level in hairdressing, cutting and colouring and professionally styling hair. Holly has an extreme passion and love of stylish blow drys!
As a result of her in-depth training and previous experience, Holly has grown a true passion and fascination for period styling in both makeup and hair from Tudor into 21st Century modern. She has a real passion and flare for Vintage 1920's all the way through to present-day styling. Holly has learned the specific styling traits of each period. The beauty of really knowing the original form of an individual period of a hair and makeup style gives her the knowledge and diversity to alter the hair and makeup styling that is required into high fashion and modern looks. Holly feels this knowledge is an extremely important grounding and foundation to really understanding the way to create and interpret styles. She particularly loves creating styles that look vintage but are modern and fabulous.
Holly's varied hair and makeup career includes work for the BBC, Benefit Cosmetics, Chanel Cosmetics, editorial magazines, advertising agencies and fashion shoots.
