I was born in London, England in 1958, and In 1979 made a move to New York. There, I worked as a makeup artist and hairstylist for 30 years, where I often prepared guests for appearances on some of the most popular TV shows, such as Good Morning America, The View, The Today Show, and many more! It has been a pleasure to work with such celebrities as Henry Winkler, Tracey Morgan, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Anderson Cooper, actresses Tess Thompson, Jenna Coleman and many more!
I am married to Joe Henson — fortunately for me, he’s one of New York City’s best photographers, and most of my photos are taken by him. We have three grown children, Jenn, James, and Abbie. We are also thrilled to have become first time grandparents in the summer of 2020 with the arrival of baby Cassia!
More recently Joe and I have settled in Montclair, New Jersey. So that’s why, when you watch my videos, you may notice that I have a peculiar hybrid accent! I’ve been doing makeup and hair for most of my adult life. I have also done some modeling here and there. Being around the beauty world has been a joy to me, and I have forever been fascinated by the transformative effects of makeup and hairstyling.
I have a wholistic approach to beauty – makeup and hairstyling techniques are nothing without a great skin care regimen, good diet, regular exercise, sleep, and personal fulfillment too. I feel that personal fulfillment is one of the most important elements of what it means to be beautiful. When a person has a sense of fulfillment, joy, and happiness in life, it emanates from their face.
I am so happy to share all I have learned throughout my career in the hope that it can help enrich the lives of other women. My goal here is to also bring you strong positive influencers who are an experts in their field, so please watch this space! You never know who might drop by Silver-Style-Studio!
