My name is Jody Lane, I’m thrilled you stopped by my page.
I’m a hair & makeup artist who loves helping people look and feel their very best…and after all that’s what you’re looking for.
Finding someone who can translate your ideas can be a challenge, I get that. Helping you to bring your ideas to life is what I enjoy to do. I help brides, celebrities, models and anyone looking to have their hair and makeup done. It can be for a special day, event, production or shoot.
I do this by offering top quality hair and makeup looks that won’t break the bank but will help you to feel confident, well-groomed and looking and feeling your best.
I’ve helped hundreds of people over my 16 years as a Hair and makeup artist to feel confident by using excellent quality brands, years of experience and a personable approach.

My top choice brands

There are so many fantastic brands out there, it’s crucial to have a varied kit working on so many different skin types. I love to mix in high street brands too such as Rimmel, No7, Revlon. It’s hard to list every brand I use.

From Cornwall to Ireland, London to Yorkshire I can be found enjoying being part of a brides special day.
few fun extras:
Just in case you’re here to find out more about my non-biz life.
I have 2 little boys who I’m usually running from one baby club to another with and we share our cute home with my partner Steve and a little cat called Poppy and crazy dog Buddy. A good trip somewhere pretty in the UK is the norm for us.
Of course I love anything to do with fashion and beauty and normally have my nose in a copy of Harpers Bazaar or Vogue. I studied make up & hair at Shepperton Film Studios in Surrey and worked and lived in London which was so inspiring and every market on my doorstep was perfect for me to get inspiration.
At 22, I moved home (Forest of Dean) and generally embraced as much travel as I could. Spending lots of time in the South of France and USA seemed to be choice destinations.
Now I spend my time with tonnes of brides, models and artists. Creating anything from trendy bridal looks to dirtying down and it's great.
