Ellie Cannings

I am a friendly, punctual and organised individual. My goal is to explored as many facets of the Makeup and Hair industry as possible, broadening and reinforcing my skillset as I go. I enjoy experimenting with unorthodox techniques such as airbrushing, custom stencils and Avant Garde concepts to do just that. In addition, I draw pleasure from creating hair ornaments, from simple pearl pins and flower crowns to medieval hair nets. This hobby has come in handy on various jobs so far.
