A little about me...

Everyone has a different story as to how they started out in the hair and makeup industry, this is mine...


It begins in London.  I worked for a chain of hairdressing salons learning everything there was to know about hair.  I was particularly interested in colour and styling back then which has stood me in good stead over the years.


An interest in fashion and film soon followed when one of my hairdressing friends asked me to help on an editorial feature about 1920/30s styling.  I enroled at Greasepaint School of Film, TV and Stage Make-up and spent the early days learning my craft whilst assisting on photo shoots, fashion shows and film sets.  I was also lucky to work at Face Facts under the direction of London makeup artist Stephen Glass, an expert in makeup application.


A continuing collection of creative jobs, study, seminars and workshops, here I am.  I set up NicolaPettitt Hair and Makeup in 2008 which co-incided with a move back from London to Devon to be nearer to my mum and dad.  In general, I love styling that's a little pared-down, a fresh and naturally flawless beauty that captures your vibe and encapsulates an inner ‘lit from within’ modern look.  


Please have a look round.  My pictures are a snapshot of my recent work, fashion and photographic, collaborations with other stylists and artists in the industry as well as some of the lovely people i've had the pleasure to meet along the way on their wedding day.


Thanks for dropping by and hope to hear from you...
