A Brief History
Lucy has worked with hair and facial hair since 2003, getting used to a fast-paced turnover whilst working in television, photographic studios and many busy film crowd rooms. She trained in wig dressing at Eastbourne Wig Academy before going on to work in the wig and make-up department at The Royal Opera House. Lucy has worked with hair and wigs throughout her career and has continued her use of hair work into her prosthetic builds.
Graduating from Joe Blasco's make-up school in Los Angeles, Lucy embarked on a freelance career in film and television. Lucy has worked on an extensive array of productions which have required a diverse spectrum of make-up styles. Throughout her career this has given Lucy the scope to develop a broad range of skills which she continues to build on. Lucy won the 2018 Bafta and Academy award for best hair and make-up for her contribution in transforming Gary Oldman into Winston Churchill for the film, 'Darkest Hour'.
Lucy specialised in prosthetics after eight years working in hair and make-up. Beginning her prosthetic career in drama, Lucy developed her skills on the busy medical drama, 'Holby City', working closely with medical professionals to simulate realistic injuries, limbs and surgery. Working for some of the best prosthetic workshops in the UK, Lucy honed her craft. Now using all three mediums of hair, make-up and prosthetics alongside each other Lucy is developing herself further as multi-skilled designer.
