With a change of career in mind like myself, Jo wanted to follow her dream of establishing herself as a professional Make-up and Hair Artist. With a keen eye for detail and friendly nature, you will feel at ease straight away.  Jo especially likes the vintage era as you can see by the above portfolio picture, so she is ideal for bookings of that theme amongst other areas. Which include bridal being her speciality, photographic and stage make-up.  She has recently worked with Café de Paris as well as some of the X factor team for a beauty pageant.

Originally Kim started off working in administration and office jobs a bit like Brides to be owner Lauren, not really enjoying it or getting any kind of job satisfaction. She always knew that she wanted to do something else but wasn't sure what that was, until she found her calling in Make-up and Hair.  She has not looked back since.

Kim loves what she does and it really shows in her work and what brides have to say about  her.  She also loves to help brides feel beautiful, confident and amazing on their special day which always helps.  With years experience under her belt in both Make-up and Hair, you are in very capable hands.  Kim is available also for special events, whether it be hen, birthday, anniversary bookings.
