Here is one happy customer’s opinion:

“We had the lovely Susana do our hair and makeup for our family event. Our hair was perfect for both of us – and the makeup was divine. Nothing was too much trouble and we all really enjoyed the experience. She brings so much experience to what she does and tailors this to the client.’’ – Adrienne


Carlie’s immense experience is equally balanced with her personable nature. She brings these skills into every consultation and ensures each client walks away with their dream hairstyle. With years of experience working as a hairdresser for the renowned Toni and Guy, she worked in salon situations as well as on numerous editorial and runway projects. In 2014, when she realised her true passion for hairstyling, she joined the Gemma Nichols Hair and Makeup Artistry team. She embodies everything we could want in a stylist – dedicated, talented and a delight to work with. Carlie works closely with each client, investing time and energy into consolations in order to fully understand the needs and style of the project.

Our clients love Carlie’s enthusiasm and talent. Here’s what one had to say

‘’She was amazing! On time, so accommodating as well as hilarious. She listened to what we wanted & whipped it up in what felt like seconds. I would recommend them to anyone’’ – Georgia
