Melanie Lindsey


Hair & Makeup Designer

Melanie’s passion for film and television led to her first break as makeup artist some ten years ago. Since then, she’s risen through the ranks to become Supervisor and now Hair and Makeup Designer on features as well as established episodics like ‘Grantchester’ and ‘Endeavour’. Equally confident with period and contemporary productions, she has proven that she can meet the demands of cast and production time and time again. Melanie is based in London and available to work worldwide.

Hair & Makeup Designer

Heartstopper

Hair & Makeup Supervisor

"I have known Mel for a number years and have found her to be a consummate professional in all facets of the production process. Her attention to detail and thorough research during the prep‘ period is second to none. She leads by example and whilst always committed to achieving excellence this is always done with a total understanding of the overall process. She can also get you out of trouble! I cannot speak highly enough of Mel and would say with absolute confidence that she is a hugely important part of the creative process and a joy to work with."
