Kia Ora Friends!
A warm welcome to you.
Thank you for taking the time to come and visit my website.
Before you look much further here is little bit about who I am and why I do what I do.
I started this career driven by my combined love and passion for all things creative and people.
I am forever in awe of all the unique versions of beauty surrounding us yet so saddened by all the grief people hold within themselves for not appearing on the outside how they wish they could.
Through my service I want to help guide you to change that inner narrative so you can believe in your own definition of beautiful, inside AND out.
In my own little world, I was raised in a humble outdoors loving family where in fact makeup and hairstyling was not so much a feature. Artists on the other hand were of abundance. Combine this with a vivid imagination my passion for drawing, painting and other art forms began.
With a specific interest in portraiture I became aware of makeup and hair styling realising how they can transform a portrait in real life and turn it into art. I soon fell in love with the art form and thus my career bloomed.
Fast forward to today, I am a full time, fully-qualified makeup artist and self taught hair stylist with 9 going on 10 years experience in glammifying countless beautiful clients!
Someone pinch me!
So with all that said, I welcome you to join me in this journey whether it's just for a quick visit, to connect or maybe even to book in your very own session with me...

Alana did my hair and makeup for a branding photoshoot.
She did a fantastic job - the photographer even commented on how impressed she was with how the makeup showed up in the photos. Alana made me very welcome and I left feeling beautiful and confident. 🤩 - Kat
