Amanda J qualified as a hair and make-up artist in 1998 at the world famous London College of Fashion. She was taught by some of the most talented artists in the industry and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience. Leaving college with a full portfolio she went on to work for some of the top glossy magazines, such as Vogue, Marie Claire and Tattler along with a number of established model agencies. She worked on television. film, editorial, fashion and specialised in bodypainting for Top of the Pops.
Along side all of this Amanda J also worked as a make-up artist for MAC and had further training with them to become an assistant manager in one of their stores, meeting many people and working on many, many faces!
Since leaving the city for the Sussex countryside Amanda J has worked with over 300 brides to create professional hair and make-up for their dream wedding day. Professional soficticated looks are also the growing trend for Prom nights. Amanda J is also called upon to create amazing looks for photographic work, and any events which require the talent and inspirations of a professional hair and make-up artist with noteable experience.
Pictures of Amanda J’s hair and make-up work can be seen in the gallery section of the website.
In 2002 Amanda J introduced a tiara & accessory range to run along side her hair & make-up work. Seeing a need in the market for well designed, easy to fix, reasonably priced, quality tiaras Amanda J set about hand crafting her own range. It was not long before she was exhibiting at some of the London Wedding Shows and advertising in bridal magazines.
The two services work extremely well together when brides are able to try all the different styles on as part of their trial day, with the ideal option of choosing complimenting pieces and jewellery made for bridesmaids as well.
Amanda J really enjoys her work and hopes that this is expressed through all the work that can be seen on the website.
