Amy Whyard

I work in TV, Film and Theatre, with a lot of experience in commercials, short films and music videos. This has included a large variation of makeup and hair styling with variants of modern, period and fantasy genres. It has involved working on jobs ranging from small Independent projects to large scale productions. Currently in film I am a junior, however I do assisting and lead hair and makeup artist work for many music videos and commercials. I am a hardworking, well-motivated individual, a confident communicator and a team worker who is always punctual.
