Jen Hymus

I am a Bedfordshire based Hair and Makeup Artist who has excelled when working on large professional productions as well as successfully delivering high calibre designs on smaller projects with greater responsibilities. I’m quick to get stuck in and am always looking at ways I can improve to better assist whatever team I am a part of. Willing to help however and wherever needed both in and out of the studio/workshop environment.
