Paula is a fully qualified Para-Medical Skin Camouflage Practitioner and a working Hair & Make-up Artist. She trained with the British Association of Skin Camouflage (BASC) and as well as being one of their members, she is also part of the Skin Camouflage Network (SCN) and Skin Camouflage Advice (SCA). Paula graduated from 3 years of hair and make-up training in 2008. After a few years of working in theatre, TV and film she found herself missing the caring role she used to play in her previous profession, Occupational Therapy (OT) and wondered if there might be a way of bridging the gap between her two passions, when she discovered the world of skin camouflage she realised this was the perfect way to supplement her developing interest in make-up and hairstyling as therapeutic interventions.
Paula’s background in Occupational Therapy gives her something very special if not unique to offer to her clients, she has worked in most areas of physical and mental health but the time she has spent with patients in Oncology, Burns, Surgical and Self Harm units has given her an especially detailed insight into what it is like to live with unwanted hair loss, change of hair texture and skin tone, change of body shape and severe scarring. Combine this with Paula’s experience of working with Actors and Models on TV, film and commercial shoots (where the transformational effects of hair and make-up can have a huge impact on confidence) and you have someone who is fully equipped to help you with any skin camouflage and/or hair concerns that you might have.
Paula has bases in both North London and Bedfordshire and is able to provide a mobile service within both of these locations, as well as the surrounding areas and those in between.
