My name is Nicole and I am the owner and director of She Styl’n. I completed my Diploma of Beauty Therapy and Advanced Makeup training in 1995. It is about this time that I commenced modelling and also went onto doing hair styl’n, makeup and fashion styl’n for some of the leading Gold Coast and Brisbane modelling agencies.
This experience was invaluable, as it taught me to work on location as a ‘hair and makeup artist’ whilst under pressure and at the same time be able to perform to the expectations of my clients. Having the experience to meet expectations on both sides of the camera, really cemented my confidence and enthusiasm for this Industry.
I also put my Diploma to good use and started a mobile beauty boutique, where women didn’t have to leave their homes to be pampered and they had a choice of many treatments from my exclusive Pamper Menu. When I was not pampering my Clients through my mobile service, I found myself styling entire fashion shoots doing makeup, hair and fashion and also co coordinating entire fashion parades from selecting the fashion to choreographing the parades to music with models.
I was approached by Buckingham School of Modelling to become one of their chief trainers and worked with them for 12 years in all elements of deportment and grooming, etiquette, catwalk, all aspects of modelling, photographic posing techniques, makeup application, hair and fashion styling.
My Business was growing, no longer was it just a hobby and I thought it was time to realise another one of my dreams, that was to own my own business. In 1995, I established She Styl’n on the Gold Coast and the rest is history. I have gone from managing and mentoring a large team of top hair stylists and makeup artists that made up the She Styl’n team for many years, to now offering a more exclusive service of makeup and hair with another hair and makeup artist, Nicole Jensen.
These days we are turning over 70 weddings per year (there is only 52 weeks in a year), working with talented photographers, celebrity fashion stylists, and supermodel clientele. I am so proud to say that I have worked so hard to be where I am today. Feeling blessed !
Ever since I first helped out backstage with makeup in my high school musical I was hooked! I’d truly found a passion, I love how makeup can dramatically enhance or even change looks.
I trained formally in makeup and received my diploma in 1995, my teachers were industry leaders at the time who were doing work on movies & television. I’ve picked up my hairstyling skills from working alongside many leading hairdressers and taking private lessons. Since graduating I’ve worked on weddings, formals, photographic shoots, special- and just about every other type of -occasion.
I’ve come to specialise in weddings and still get excited with every bridal party that I do! I put every effort into my service so that you feel valued and special.
I would love to take your wedding booking whether it’s last minute or years in advance .
Let me take care of all your makeup and hair needs for any occasion
