“I see every person as an individual and I want to create unique and individual styles around them.”

Kirsty’s interest for the Arts and Creating started from an early age. With over 15 years experience in the industry, she is a true professional with a keen eye to detail. Her passion lies in creating hair and makeup looks for Photographic, Fashion and Bridal work. She uses some of the finest, high quality products such as MAC and Napoleon, which give durability, and the perfect finish to any look. She also offers Air Brushing for that flawless finish to any makeup look.

Kirsty likes to keep looking for new and creative ways to implement fashion trends into her work. She believes in recreating her work and likes to challenge her thinking, through using different colours, textures, and experimenting with the placement of them. When it comes to describing her work, she sees her style as versatile and creative with a professional edge. She believes that rules were meant to be broken when it comes to makeup and the sky’s the limit with what you can create.

Kirsty also works with other professional hair and makeup artists. When bigger jobs are booked in, Kirsty will arrange other trusted professional hair and/or makeup artists to help out on the day of the job.

Hi Kirsty,
The rest of the day went sooooo well and I loved my hair and make-up. It lasted very well and I didn't even touch up later on, it probably would have been better if I had, but by then I was too busy making the rounds, you really don't get to do much for yourself on the day do you!?
Kind Regards,



Hi Kirsty!
Our day was magical – the weather was perfect and everything ran smoothly! I loved my make-up – it felt natural and not like it was caked on and yes, it did last the distance! Thank you once again for your services!
Thanks again,
