Susan Cole

Hair & Makeup designer


With a background as both actor and screenwriter, Susan got into makeup comparatively late in her career. Her training consisted firstly of salon experience both as stylist and as colour technician working with actors and on wigs alike, and then as a wig specialist and period hairdresser, working out of the legendary Ray Marsden’s studio. She went on to train at the Christine Blundell Makeup Academy, and since then has enjoyed an almost meteoric rise through the ranks of the makeup department. With maturity as well as experience of acting on her side, she’s been a great choice for a Personal, and now has her second Designer credit on the forthcoming series ‘Whitstable Pearl’ for Acorn TV’s new streaming platform.
