The blog of a professional hair and makeup artist!

Welcome to the inside story...

The blog of a professional hair and makeup artist

My name is Bridget and I have been fortunate to be part of the hair and beauty sector for more than 25 years. I obtained my qualifications many years back, when it was possible to undergo training for beauty therapy and advanced hairdressing over a three-year span at a nearby college. Throughout this training, individuals not only acquired fundamental skills but also delved into areas such as diet and nutrition, trichology, wig crafting, fitness instruction, and cosmetic science (the art of formulating skincare products).

Currently, I am employed as a hair and makeup artist for television and film. However, I have previously held roles as a college lecturer instructing hair and beauty courses, a beauty therapist on cruise ships, and a makeup counter assistant, among other positions.

During this period, I have received training in a diverse range of treatments and services, and I have collaborated with numerous skincare, hair care, nail care, and makeup brands.

Throughout this period, I have greatly enjoyed the chance to consistently collaborate with and learn from fellow professionals. This experience has enabled me to acquire diverse expertise and credentials. Moreover, it has provided me with the opportunity to not only educate others in a classroom setting, but also while interacting with my clients or working with actors on set, engaging in one-on-one conversations.

So, why this blog?

Hopefully, this is a chance for me to provide you, my readers, with some professional insights into the beauty industry.

Discussing a piece of advice I shared with one of my brides about preparing their skin before their wedding day could be a topic of conversation.

It might involve responding to a question such as, 'whether or not you should wash your hair' before your hairdresser styles it for a special occasion.

Maybe a small tip that I recently learned while working in the crowd room. (Keep in mind that we too are constantly learning).

Another topic I might discuss is a new product I have recently started using while working on set. Alternatively, I could be addressing a question that you have sent me.

Essentially, the topic could cover a wide range of subjects related to hair and beauty. Let's wait and see how it unfolds...

Remember to check back periodically for further updates...
