Hair on Request
Samantha’s interest in skincare and beauty was evident from an early age. In order to nurture this interest into the beginnings of a career, she sought specialised treatment training at Champney’s Spa Group. Through hard work, talent and determination she was awarded a place at the prestigious Glauca Rossi School of Make-Up in London, studying fashion make-up.
After being offered a position at Lancôme, as part of the ‘Artist’ team for Selfridges, she was invited to apply her skills at The BAFTA Awards. This proved to be the catalyst needed to launch her into a career of decorated achievements, and a list of clients she still feels truly humbled and honoured to be working with.
Some of her editorials include: L’Uomo Vogue, Billboard, GQ, Attitude, OUT, Noctis, Grazia, and Rolling Stone Magazine. Sam’s professionalism and adaptability have proven invaluable in the pressurised environment of live TV work, music videos and film. Working with some amazing talent; Lindsay Lohan, Gillian Anderson, Samantha Morton, Joanna Lumley, Miranda Richardson, Abigail Clancy and Lily Cole.
Samantha also has extensive male grooming experience, having worked alongside Hollywood actors like Matthew Perry, Kit Harrington, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Spacey, iconic figures such as David Tennant, Derren Brown and Tom Daley, and internationally famous comedians Eddie Izzard, Greg Davies and Ricky Gervais.
As part of her ongoing collaborations with Duran Duran, of over a decade now, she has worked on (and featured in!) the infamous ‘All You Need Is Now’ video. Her experience in music make-up also features, Snow Patrol, Dizzee Rascal and Laura Marling. In addition to this, Samantha has worked on beauty advertorials for ROC Skincare and commercials for Pretty Polly, Dune, Jaeger, Moss Bros, Nikon, Rimmel and Ann Summers.
Her trademark is her lightweight application. Samantha feels: “skin should always be glowing and natural, I am a great believer that less can often be more, not to drown features but to enhance.” Coming from a skincare background, she has vital experience with the finest products on the market, and builds relationships with brands to ensure she has access to the very latest innovations and best products, resulting in an amazing finish, tailored for each individual.
