Nicole Grant is a mobile hair and make-up artist based in Cape Town. She specialises in beauty, fashion and bridal hair and make-up. Please contact her for weddings, matric dances, corporate events, editorials, TVCs, film and special occasions.
She studied at The Make-Up Issue in Kloof Street in 2009 and has been in the industry since then. Working with some of South Africa's top hair and make-up artists has taught her countless tricks of the trade and her style is natural and timeless. Having been in the industry for awhile, she has had the experience and her talent to enhance your best features and make sure you photograph beautifully is known in the industry.
"Make-up for me is all about having fun with someone else's looks. I love skin to look like skin and think your natural beauty should shine through. I believe that make up should not wear you, and that you should be the best possible version of yourself! I love making people feel beautiful and awe-struck by their own beauty. It makes me happy to see people's reactions to themselves and knowing I've made somebody else's day and made them feel special."
Nicole believes that all women are beautiful in their own way and makeup has the ability to enhance their best features. She is a perfectionist but has a very relaxed personality. Nicole will strive to make her clients not only look great but feel great too. If you want someone who is down to earth but fun to be around and listens to your every need, look no further!
In 2014, she was nominated for two awards at the Bokeh International Fashion Film Festial. One for "Best Hairstyling" and the other for "Best Make-Up". She's also been lucky enough to finish two advanced hair courses with the legendary Merle Titus.
