Hayley was born in Birmingham, and then moved to London at the age of 18 to study Fashion Design & Marketing at London College of Fashion. Designing and making clothes led her to become interested in textures and colour. Her love for design then trickled into makeup. She began to do test shoots with photographers in her spare time, which led to her discovering a natural talent and passion for makeup.
After graduating, she then relocated to New York City in 2012, enrolling at the Make up For Ever Academy, developing her own style and technique for both editorial and bridal makeup. She assisted and worked on shoots for ELLE magazine, JCrew and Clarins. Hayley then went onto work at the prestigious Kimara Ahnert makeup studio on Madison Avenue, where she grew her bridal business and provided one to one makeup lessons. Hayley now specialises in bespoke bridal makeup and aims to make every bride feel there absolute best on their wedding day.
"When it comes to makeup I like to focus on creating a natural, flawless base before enhancing a bride’s best features. I prefer to work one-on-one with my clients to understand their vision and create the best possible version of themselves."
Her kit contains a curated mix of world renowned brands such as Nars, KatVonD, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Bobbi Brown and MAC. She has worked with over a hundred brides in and around New York city and is now bringing her expertise back to the UK.
