Nicky Austin

Hair & Makeup Designer


Nicky’s route through the ranks of the makeup department has taken her through period, drama, and comedy. From working on hugely popular shows such as ‘The Crown’, ‘Downton Abbey’, and now as Designer on the Apple TV+ and Golden Globe winning comedy series ‘Ted Lasso’, she has proven time and again that she can meet the demands of cast as well as Production. Nicky is based in London and available for work worldwide.

“Nicky is true artist, her work on screen is exquisite and she brings both nuance and versatility to her craft. She is an inspiring and compassionate HOD and a total team player with a no drama, ‘can do’ attitude that proves invaluable day in, day out.”
