Working With Famous Clients

After working as the Head of the Hair & Makeup, & Wardrobe Department for Maori Television for 8 years you soon get to meeting a lot of high profile people nationally and internationally, so many that you stop counting, top sports people, musicians, actors, politicians, Prime Ministers and just plain characters like the Dali Lama.
My Dad is well known so I was used to being around recognisable people and while still training at Cut Above Academy I was charged with doing fashion photoshoots for the Women’s Day and Sunday Star Times with high profile models & people, but the first really famous person (in my eyes) I ever did was actress Rena Owen right after the release of Once Were Warriors. I was straight out of Hair & Makeup school and she was exhausted having just landing after a 24hour flight from L.A. Her only request was to not make her look like Beth!
A little more experience under my belt and I would regularly ask new talent coming into the Maori Television Makeup Room what they did for a living, even if I knew and it is on the call sheet! Especially the sports stars as this put us on an even playing field as I would pretend I did not know who they are, they only person it did not work with was Greg Murphy, smart man that Greg.
When working with prime ministers their body guards would come into the makeup room and do a security sweep first and stand at the door watching guard, this happened with both John Key and Helen Clark, both very personable people making it hard to decide on voting day so one must always go back to the party policies.
Kea Awards 2015
We recently celebrated the Kea N.Z. Awards where Former prime minister Helen Clark was nominated along Victoria Ransom, Audette Excel and Beatrice Faumuina….all highly accomplished leaders in their vocations, Helen won.
What struck me personally about getting the opportunity to work with Helen again, this time I was back to freelancing, and I was grateful in a few shorts years to have relaunched and re-branded my business to such a high level to be humbly selected to facilitate the hair and makeup for these business superstars.
You would think as Helen and I had previously worked together that I this would be a breeze for me, to a certain extend yes but I recognised that when I admire the talent I get a bit shy. Her accomplishments and intelligence I respect and am in awe of, she married a Doctor her lovely husband David, tick one.
As a hair and makeup artist I ask a few polite questions to initiate communication but I usually leave it up to the talent to lead the conversation as they may just want to relax. With someone like Helen you do think heck what should I talk about, and there is no security guards present or production staff hanging on to fill in the conversational lulls.
I need not have worried as I found Helen to be even more relaxed and less concerned about her image, I personally felt when she was Prime Minister she would lessen her looks in general to maintain a relate-ability to her voters.
When she told me she liked my white platform sneakers, I explained I needed the height, she enquired what that was and exclaimed ”oh your short!”
Lol I just laughed, I love people that are direct.
Kea Awards
We chatted about my political gripes with National cutting the much needed arts funding that she personally championed that kept our industry afloat for many years, the cutting down of hospitality numbers and a few high profile people that have more happening in their personal lives then we know, makeup artist never tells.
Freelance hair and makeup artists implement their clients requests in a tiny amount of time under pressure in sometimes not ideal locations, the pluses are we get paid well and get to meet our heroes.

Wedding & Bridal Hair & Makeup Auckland|Media Makeup

Bianca Fallon|Beauty.Hair.Makeup|Freelance Makeup Artist

I LOVE weddings! I am the first professional that greets the bridal party on the big day & it is very important that I am on time to set up & in control of the situation, that is what I get paid to do manage the bridal party and then hand them onto the professional photographer or the driver.

Ensuring your bride has everything that she needs to start her special day off is simply a question away.

  • How do you feel today, excited, anxious?
  • Explaining to my bride that her nerves is just excitement and it is normal!
  • Managing the bridesmaids, there is always one with a personality and may need a gentle reminder that this day is about the bride 🙂
  • Ensuring that the hair style the ladies want are suitable for their hair types and realistically last the day.
  • That their makeup is what they want and suitable for the facial structure of each person.

Do you need your Teeth Whitened?

Bianca Fallon|Beauty.Hair.Makeup|Freelance Makeup Artist

Once a year I like to have my teeth whitened safely, quickly & hopefully pain free, the best part is I did not have to leave the house as this service is now an in home treatment, work or salon & there are clinics that you can go to in your area.

If you consume coffee, tea, cola, red wine, every day foods such as beetroot or are a smoker you would be a perfect candidate for a spruce up under the laser as it is ideal for most people with light to medium discolouration. After a 60 minute treatment, your teeth can be 2-8 shades lighter, depending on how much abuse you have given them in the past, & the process lasts 6months-2years depending on your dental hygiene, dietary habits, smoking, medications & age.

People with medium to heavy discolouration will notice a difference & the procedure can be done on people who have plates, bridges, crowns, false teeth, veneers, caps, fillings taking the staining off back to the original colour they were made at, but they cannot whiten anything false. The procedure will not harm dental work & an added bonus is that your teeth are cleaned & plaque is removed for a whiter smile.

They also offer Euro Non Sensitive for clients with extreme tooth sensitivity or a history of gum disease, allergies to peroxide or hydrogen peroxide for clients with tooth sensitivity & stubborn staining. You have to fill out a medical form prior to your  appointment to determine if your able to have the procedure, so please avoid this treatment if you are pregnant, have gum disease, are under 15 years, with certain medical conditions or allergies.

Before and afterI simply contacted them to make a booking & they sent me an email booking, you must read all of the information carefully & remember not to brush your teeth four hours before as this can block the whitening process. You can eat afterwards however your teeth become porous (like blotting paper) & it is recommended for the first 24 hours to avoid tea, coffee, smoking, dark coloured soft drinks, red wines, berries, beetroot & curry etc.

Your qualified technician will match your starting tooth colour to a shade guide & depending on where you fall on this guide will determine the length of treatment you will most benefit from. A wax coating is applied to protect you from any whitening gel getting on the gums using a special whitening agent that is applied to the teeth, the LED light is then positioned in front of your mouth. The spectrum blue LED light focuses energy directly onto the ingredients in the whitening gel causing an oxidisation (reaction) which accelerates the rate at which the gel penetrates into the tooth, but don’t worry it does not burn as this blue light does not heat up.

Blue light

The key to the success of this whitening system is the patented blue light technology, which increases the potency of whitening in a fraction of the time only taking 30 minutes for any whitening agent to safely reach through the tooth enamel to the Dentin to whiten the teeth correctly.

dentinThe “Euro” treatment $699 (Non Sensitive Gel)               Current special $299!

Ideal for people with extreme tooth sensitivity, whether this be from gum disease, dehydrated teeth from previous teeth whitening treatments, or for people who have an allergy to peroxide

Please allow 15 minutes for your pre-consult which includes an oral cavity inspection, where they will check for gum disease, plaque & tartar build-up, visible tooth damage, cracked or broken teeth. A colour match is taken to determine the length of treatment required for you.   Note: This does not include a scale & clean. You should allow 14 days before having your teeth whitened after your hygienist appointment which will insure you have no risk of infection or sensitivity during the whitening treatment.

The “Home Maintenance Kit”   

This is recommended for people who smoke, crooked teeth, plaque, top up for special occasions, genetic yellowing, medications, drink coffee, tea, cola, & red wine drinkers that are not that good at rinsing afterwards.
