If make-up has magical powers then Susan Sutherland is every woman’s fairy godmother. As a highly qualified make-up artist and hairdresser Susan has the skills and experience to create transformation for her clients.

"It amazes me how a new hairstyle, colour and hi-lights or a different make-up look can bring such a dramatic change to someone's personality and their self-esteem. I find this extremely powerful and gratifying."

Hair and make-up has been Susan's lifelong passion and whilst living in Rio de Janeiro she had the opportunity to turn it into a profession. Susan studied Professional Make-up, and then in 2007 she passed The British City and Guilds Hairdressing NVQ II with distinction.

"It's simple; I believe in hard work, determination and more hard work. I absolutely love what I do and my passion and energy is rewarded with huge job satisfaction. I've been fortunate to work on projects like Dubai Fashion Weeks, Abu Dhabi Film Awards, Laureus Sports Awards and opening ceremonies of the Armani and Atlantis Hotels," says Susan. Other notable clients include: Emirates and Etihad Airlines, Jumeirah Group, The One TV, Etisalat, Mall of Emirates, L'Oreal, YSL and Max Factor.
