Joys Work at The BFI London Film Festival For Universal Pictures – Hair & Grooming for Sasha Lane ‘American Honey’ & Aaron Taylor Johnson ‘Nocturnal Animals’ & Attending The Premiere Too

The British Film Institute London Film Festival

The British Film Institute London Film Festival (simply BFI London Film Festival) is an annual film festival held in the United Kingdom, running in the second half of October with cooperation from the British Film Institute. It screens more than 300 films, documentaries and shorts from approximately 50 countries.

I was called upon again by Universal Pictures to  the hair & grooming for two of the worlds leading actors in two of the best new films of 2016. 

Sasha Lane ‘American Honey’

Star (Sasha Lane), an adolescent girl from a troubled home, runs away with a traveling sales crew who drive across the American Midwest selling subscriptions door to door. Finding her feet in this gang of teenagers, one of whom is Jake (Shia LaBeouf), she soon gets into the group’s lifestyle of hard-partying nights, law-bending days, and young love.

I was delighted to look after hair and make up for the gorgeous Sasha Lane. It was a 14 hour day filled with press interviews, photo shoots, radio and finally the red carpet.
