My Story

  At the young age of 15, Nicola started her journey into the world of all things hair and make-up by becoming an apprentice in a busy salon and soon fell in love! The buzz of creating beauty and in some instances art, pushed Nicola to becoming a senior stylist in a highly successful salon.

After 8 years and 2 awards, she decided to pursue herr passion for the industry even further and trained with the award winning DFMA make-up academy and ‘Nicola Hood Hair and Make-up Artist’ was born!

The beauty of being freelance is that Nicola has been able to focus and specialize skills in the areas that she's most passionate about.

  Nicola has had the pleasure of working with so many beautiful brides in some fantastic locations to create their dream wedding looks. From matching the look to the dress and the wedding theme, to seeing the excitement of the bridal party on the day and applying the finishing touches! What job could be better?!

  Through Nicola's qualification in TV, Fashion and Media Make-up Artistry. She has been able to pursue her dreams alongside  bridal work, working on photoshoots both in studios and on location and events like The Goodwood Revival, this has only confirmed, that this was the perfect career choice!
