Jess Saywell began her career in 2016 taking Level 2 and 3 NVQ Beauty & Make Up at TLT College in Hayes, Kent. Jess then added to her professional qualifications by passing the MASA Advanced Diploma with merit at The London School of Beauty & Make Up in Farringdon, London. Jess took her first steps into employment with a year at Hiro Myoshi Hair & Beauty in Mayfair, London where she studied under Hiro Myoshi and learnt the skills needed to provide top quality hair and beauty treatments for high end international clients. Jess then spent a short spell at Benefit Cosmetics in Carnaby Street, Soho where she excelled in client interaction and service leading to the highest sales commissions in the store.

Realising that her true passion was for audience related hair and make-up rather than retail Jess enrolled in a course at the Christine Blundell Academy (CBMA) where she learnt the essential skills of hair and make up for film, tv and theatre from Christine and her other industry professional tutors. Having successfully completed the CBMA course Jess is now working as make-up artist on short student films, pop videos and amateur dramatic theatre productions to build up her industry experience.
