Laura Sim

Hi! I’m Laura Sim, an all round creative person. I previously worked as a Junior Graphic Designer before taking the leap to re train in Hair & Make up at The Iver Make up Academy. Here I completed their Advanced Certificate in Hair & Make up Artistry. Since training I have been fortunate enough over the past few years to gain a variety of experience. Predominately most of my experience is in TV. All things hair as well as prosthetics are areas that I am particularly passionate about. I love to lend a hand in any way I can – any down time you will catch me with the label maker finding things to organise! I thrive being part of a team but equally capable of completing tasks on my own. I am very excited for the next challenge!
