Sara trained in specialist film and TV make up at the London College of Fashion and has over twenty years experience working in make up for films and television from Dr Finlay’s Casebook to James Bond. Sara has worked with many of the big names in the entertainment world, and for fifteen years worked exclusively at the BBC managing hair and make up on Holby City.  She has also coordinated many red carpet events and magazine shoots, including photo shoots for Hello, OK and the Sunday Times.  

Since leaving the BBC, celebrities continue to use Sara as their personal make up artist!  She has taught at several independent colleges, and we are delighted to say she is joining us at Cedars and the UK Hair Academy where she is looking forward to continuing to pass on her knowledge as part of our team.


To me, the most important aspect is that each student fulfils their individual wishes and needs, and comes away from my courses with new skills and enthusiasm.  Courses can be tailored to suit individuals, or taught in small groups.   Groups will number no more than six, so as to ensure each student gets plenty of attention.  Hair and make up can be combined with teaching from Cedars own qualified stylists, or taught separately, depending on what you want!
