About Julie

I am a fully qualified advanced Hair and Make-up artist and beauty therapist with more than 20 years experience in Theatre, Film and Television.

During my 13 years as head of Wigs and Make-up at Welsh National Opera I was responsible for designing the wigs and make-up for Opera productions, many of which were for television. I also designed productions for Opera Houses worldwide, including in New York, Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Vancouver, Wiesbaden and Maastricht.

I have worked on many television productions such as Dr. Who, Downton Abbey, Lark rise to Candleford and Upstairs Downstairs, and have designed the hair, wigs and make-up for many documentary programmes including ‘The Story of Wales’ for the BBC.

Recent films I have worked on include Batman, Snow White, Transformers, Florence Foster Jenkins and Warhorse (for Steven Spielberg).

Richard Burton, Phillip Madoc, Sian Phillips, Michael Sheen, Matthew Rees and Eve Miles are some of the favourite artists I have worked with, as well as many famous opera stars including Bryn Terfel and Jose Carreras.

I am experienced in Editorial, Commercials, and Photographic work, for the BBC, Welsh National Opera, and independent companies.

I also spent three years lecturing in Theatrical Hair and Make-up.
