The Best of 2016 Gemma Nichols Hair and Makeup Artistry


Wow. It’s been a big year for us at Gemma Nichols Hair and Makeup Artistry. We have recently grown to a team of 10 wonderful artists which I am hoping to turn into 12 very soon and Caroline, my rock, also known as my PA came on board in August as I was busy spending my days working at the Channel 9 studio.

We did countless hair and makeups for events all year which kept Susana busy during the week. Jen conducted all our group makeup workshops and passed on her knowledge of makeup whilst I focused on the one on one lessons for the ladies requiring a more in depth lesson. Gladis and Kim did a great job of our costume makeup bookings for those of you that love a dress up and a little glitter.

We have really focused on education this year with lots of in-house training for our hair and makeup team to ensure we stay ahead of the trends. Well done to Danielle, your artistry has flourished since you joined us which was evident when you won the 2016 updo trend competition we ran earlier this year.

Thank you to all of our brides this year. The team and I did over 200 weddings this year and each and everyone of you made them so much fun. To all of our clients, thank you so much for your support. We book out every weekend because of your testimonials, reviews and the praise you give through word of mouth and for that we are truly grateful. I couldn’t be more sincere when I say work does not feel like work. That’s because we have so much fun chatting to you all and transforming you all into your visions. I just hope we bring as much joy to you as you do to us!

To my amazing team, you are all so talented at what you do and you have such passion for making people feel happy and look glamorous. Our success is down to you, together we make a great team and are invincible. You have all become friends as well as colleagues and I am still blown away by your thoughtfulness and generosity. You all go above and beyond for both me and our clients which I know they all appreciate as much as I do. I look forward to thanking you all for your dedication this year at our high tea next weekend. Caroline I am sorry you can’t be here but we will make up for it when you fly to Australia in March!

Have a wonderful new years eve everyone. Be happy and stay safe. We’ll see you for an even bigger and better year in 2017!
