Makeup & Hair Artist
Heather Manson
Makeup & Hair Designer

A fully qualified all round hairdresser and makeup artist, Heather enjoys being a little cog in the
creative film machine. She is also a compulsive learner and takes as many courses as she can as
well as thoroughly immersing herself in research for all her projects. Drawn to the hair and
makeup department from her love of film production, her passion is to create believable,
memorable characters in collaboration with the performers and visionaries she works with.
