Portfolio Building Workshops for Bridal Makeup & Hairstylists

Sit back as we take care of all the details for you to be able to gain Pinterest Worthy content!

Our workshops are specifically designed for artists to have their creativity flow,
and for Bridal Hairstylists and Wedding Makeup Artists to gain valuable, show-
stopping images to add to their portfolios.

We 100% believe that if you are showing more of what you LOVE to create within
your portfolio – then more and more brides to be, will book you for those styles!

Wow your potential clients with your talent and images

Want to know the

Secret

to sucess?

You need eye catching imagery that showcases your work and inspires potential clients.

Having images that clearly show your hairstyles or makeup, up close as well as fully styled so that your ideal clients know exactly what you are capable of and why they NEED to invest in your services and book YOU ASAP!

We know that the investment of your beauty course, and building up your kit is an expense, however after that you don’t have much to show for it…

Images are so important to draw clients in. And you better believe that the artists with strong portfolios are bagging the clients! An artist that can clearly show their skills is going to gain a client’s trust fair more easily! So, photos that are showing of your work clearly and professionally are non-negotiable.

Let me ask you a few questions…

Do you want to gain more quality clients?

Do you struggle to keep your portfolio fresh?

Do you struggle to find models if you want to be creative?

Do you struggle to get images back from photographers?

Do you get images back from photographers, but they are heavily filtered or there are no closeups and you can’t use them?

Do you rely on getting all your portfolio images if and when you have a moment from an iPhone?

Are you not attracting your ideal clients?

Struggling to justify increasing your prices?

Are you not attracting enough potential clients?

You are not alone if you answered YES to ANY of the above! 

…THE STRUGGLE IS REAL…

Image this level of professional
content in your protfolio...

What if I told you there was just one thing… 

That could change all the above problems you may be facing.

You can change this all by investing time, money, and energy to instantly start improving what you show to your potential clients as they land on your social media and website.

They only need to see ONE image that speaks to them of a hairstyle or makeup look that YOU created, that is captured well to inspire them and book you! That’s right, even the power of have ONE stand out image has huge benefits

THE THING IS – You don’t have much time to impress a potential client viewing your website or social media. Your images are the strongest chance you have to capture their attention within 10 seconds to make them continue investigating you as a potential wedding hairstylist or makeup artist for their very special day!

What’s that saying – ‘a picture says a thousand words’…
It couldn’t be more true!

Imagine

This...

Hi! I'm

Storme

We all start somewhere, and I would love to let you in on the secret that fast tracked my career in the wedding industry as a bridal hair and makeup artist.

I moved to London from Cape Town, shortly after I got married. I know little and no one in London. I had to start all over again from scratch, with very little paid work coming my way.

I didn’t know who my ideal client was, nor did I know or understand how best to attract them.

Fast forward two years and I had a website that was generating me more leads than I was able to serve myself and I had added two trusted friends of mine that were artists to start building a team.

Today I run a team of 20 highly in-demand wedding hair and makeup artists that do destination weddings and travel all over London, Surrey, Kent, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

It wasnt always like this for me…

I had very limited business knowledge when I arrived in London in April 2015, and when I started my business ‘ Storme Makeup and Hair in April 2016, I was determine to make something of it.

Through many struggles and learning curves, I quickly found that one’s images can be the fuel and a powering force to getting noticed and attracting your ideal clients and an audience as a whole.

Instead of just putting money aside to invest in upgrading my skillset when there was someone I wanted to learn hair and makeup techniques from, I also wanted to invest time, money, and energy in having a portfolio I was truly proud of. This not only helped me showcase all the styles I love to create but also attracted the RIGHT potential clients to me and my services.

It can be rather expensive developing your portfolio on your own if you want pinterest worthy images…

So I created a workshop and safe place for you to be able to show your clients something special, and gain more bridal bookings!

What other

Artists

have said:

Love the professional portfolio days with the photographers, also getting to do makeup etc.. as it is so hard to get the images you want sometimes on wedding mornings without feeling like an inconvenience to the bride/ photographer, this is a perfect way plus I get to chat about my passion with other artists and have fun!

 – Jo Elizabeth

“I have attended several workshops/creative days with Storme Hair and Makeup and each one has been a really great opportunity to learn and create high quality content.  They are always incredibly well organised; every detail is considered and Storme always brings together the most talented and professional models/suppliers to contribute to the experience.  As well as producing high-quality, eye-catching images they have also always been great opportunities to showcase new styles and have encouraged me to work on looks that have previously been outside of my comfort zone.  They have also provided great opportunities to network with other professionals, sharing tips and learning new techniques from one another.”

– Jennifer Hawkins
