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. 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 this year has now established herself as Head of Department on the third series of ITV/Netflix ratings-buster ‘Marcella’.
