About Me

Photo By Diana Thompson. Fashion Loves Photos.

Hi, Miss Honey Bare here. I am a freelance hair and makeup artist, stylist and designer. I specialise in retro, avant garde and alternative styling but by no means am limited to it, it’s just what I do most. Originally trained in fashion design and pattern cutting, with a career in fashion spanning nearly 15 years (I had my first job in a local boutique, pattern cutting and sewing clothes, at 15), I have considerable knowledge regarding style, design, structure, detail and silhouette. I have styled shoots and been in front of the camera as well as worked behind the scenes. My background puts me in a unique position and means my approach to hair and makeup is holistic, taking into account the whole rather just than concentrating on what is going on above the neck. It’s all about the details!

My obsession with all things retro, creepy and bizarre from an early age has led me to develop skills in vintage hair styling techniques, wig customisation, extreme makeup, SFX, costuming, custom hair accessories and nail art. Part self taught over the last 15 years and part formally trained (I have studied both fashion and makeup at The London College of Fashion). I’m not afraid to break some rules and face creative challenges.
