About Emma Peters

Hair, makeup and wardrobe are all equally important in designing a look, a character, or in defining a personality. It has been my passion for  as long as I can remember to bring these aspects together to create a seamless look.

I have been working as a hair & makeup artist and stylist for the past 17 years. In this time, I have developed my skills to suit all types of media, including fashion, advertising, film and television. Whether the required look be high fashion, extreme gore or the girl next door, I love breathing life into them all.

I base myself out of Auckland, New Zealand.

Here’s an overview of what I’ve been up to.
