Makeup and hair for beautiful music
I recently was hired to do makeup and hair for a talented singer/songwriter named Lena Belle. She would be photographed by Darin Fong for her new CD cover titled “My Own Way”. When she arrived for her session I was delighted by her warm personality and down to earth attitude; yet she was somehow worldly for such a young person. Unfamiliar with her music at the time I asked her when the CD would be available. I offered to pay her in advance if she would mail me a CD when they became available. Much to my surprise, in the hustle-bustle busy world we live in where much is forgotten and promises are left unfulfilled, she followed through by mailing me her CD accompanied with a super sweet handwritten thank you note …I’m a huge fan! (both of her and her music)

Makeup for musicians combined with hairstyling and wardrobe design play an integral role in achieving the image and persona the artist wishes to portray to the public much as an actor would do to get into character for a major role. So whether the artists’ style is Lady Gage-dramatic or Taylor Swift-soft, makeup and hair play a big part in achieving that image.
