Being awarded and recognised for the work that you do is one of the most amazing achievements for a Hair and Makeup Artist.
6 years into my journey I hadn't won anything, but it wasn't something that I aspired to do. I was busy building my name and working really hard, trying to make peoples visions come to life. Some days were amazing, but other days were hard. You can't grow as a person if your career and passion isn't extremely difficult at times. Many tears have been shed on my journey and I'm sure there will be a lot more to come.
Then in 2016, I was surprised with a Hair and Makeup nomination for Bridal Hair and Makeup through the Brides Choice Awards in the Yarra Valley - 2016. I decided to go to this awards night, with no expectations, just to enjoy a good night with my team and let loose. Well it just so happens that I won that night, for both categories of Hair and Makeup.
This was the most amazing night for me as these nominations are from real brides that booked me for their wedding day, and voted for me without my knowledge. To say I was extremely blown away is an understatement.
It was from there, my award winning journey began.........
