In a way, all of the people I work with are superheroes! From brides to students and even stage actors, and models. They all arrive at my door (or me to theirs), ready to be transformed. And this transformation can lead to more than just a physical look change. I see brides cry – waterproof mascara all the way – when they see themselves look like they’ve always imagined; actresses take on their character with a whole new embodiment; and students become hungry for their own success after the first class. This is the (super)power of Truly Gorgeous.
Enough said, let’s lock it in.
Hi there, I’m Sharon Wilkes-Burt and Truly Gorgeous is my baby, my passion. I have worked in the hair and makeup industry for over 25 years, between the UK and Australia, and across many different disciplines: TV, theatre, editorial, advertising, and of course weddings! I found that doing bridal (plus her crew of bff’s) hair and makeup always left me feeling the most alive. It’s like I become part of something truly special, something that will literally remain timeless for generations to come. When you hear of job satisfaction, that’s it for me. Well, that and sharing my knowledge and experience so that a whole new crop of hair and makeup artists can leave their mark on the world too.
I’m always up for a chat so please get it touch with any questions and we can take it from there.
