Here at AMB we are joined by MDG Hair & Beauty who is a professional Hair & Makeup Artist across Birmingham and was a finalist in Britain's Asian Wedding Awards in both 2019 & 2020. Here MDG Hair & Beauty gives us an insight into being a professional HMUA.


I have always had a passion for creativity. Seeing the transformation from a blank canvas to a work of art fascinated me and I wanted a career that enabled me to incorporate that. Makeup, hair tools and a variety of techniques allow me to truly express myself as an artist. When you are creating looks for fashion shows,  photoshoots or weddings, the possibilities are endless.

Everyday is different

Being a freelance hairstylist and makeup artist means you can literally work anywhere in the world. The ability to set your own schedule and travel wherever you want to, gives you a sense of freedom you don't get within the constraints of a 9-5 job. I love going to new places, meeting new people and taking on different challenges. You could be backstage at a fashion show, getting models ready for the catwalk one day and arriving at 3am for an asian bridal booking the next. No two days are the same and I would not have it any other way.


Establishing real connections with people is an important part of what I do. Listening to what hair or makeup look a person wants, or what they are going through in life, helps to build those positive relationships. My clients have amazing, emotional and inspiring stories and I am honoured that people feel comfortable enough to share them with me. It means a lot to connect with people on a deeper level and for them to put their trust in you.


Everyone has natural beauty but the power of hair and makeup can give you more confidence. We all have insecurities and sometimes it takes someone else to see something that you couldn't see for yourself. The fact that I can unlock that confidence in someone that they never knew they had is powerful thing.

Lasting Impressions

The gasp, the massive smile, sometimes even the tears, that emotional reaction when a client sees the finished look in the mirror, is the main reason I do what I do. Seeing themselves in a completely different way to which they have seen themselves before, making them truly happy and exceeding their expectations is so rewarding.
