Hello Friends!

A warm welcome to you.

Thank you for taking the time to come and visit my website.

Before you look any further here is little bit about who I am and why I do what I do.

I have always been an artist. Drawing and painting people/portraits on 2D canvases ever since I could hold a pen. With a history in dance and performing I have been immersed in the world of beauty and glamour from a young age. Fascinated by the transformative powers of Makeup and Hair and the endless limits to what one can create. Being a people person with a vivid imagination meant artistry became not only a way to express myself through creativity but also a way to create meaningful human connections.


I have forever been in awe of all the unique versions of beauty within humanity. It is my greatest privilege to work with such beauty and connect with people in all walks of life, creating glams of dreams on some of the most memorable days in ones life. It is my mission to celebrate the heck out of all this beauty through my services and guide you as my client to feel your most confident and to see your own definition of beautiful reflected back to you. 


Today, I am a full time, qualified professional makeup artist and mostly self taught hair stylist from Aotearoa, New Zealand now living in Melbourne, Australia with over 10 years experience in practicing my craft, glammifying countless gorgeous clients, with work featured in Vogue Australia...

Someone pinch me!


So with all that said, I welcome you to join me in this journey whether it's for a quick visit, an extended look or to hopefully create your very own booking with me...

I can not wait to share in all the epic "MUHA" experiences to come!

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
