Samantha Jupp – Senior Stylist.
After travelling for 5 months Samantha has landed her feet with us at Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup and we’re so excited to have her! Samantha originally trained in an academy in the South of England, to then continue in education under Vidal Sassoon and Toni & Guy. Moving to London is where her career really took off, gaining a wealth of hairdressing experience that ranges from building an in-salon clientele, wedding hair and makeup on weekends, styling for music videos, photoshoots, advertising, celebrity, to runway.

Candice – Stylist
Growing up in a pretty special place – Cape Town, South Africa, surrounded by nature, wild life and a wide variety of cultures and languages is where Candice’s passion was ignited for all things colourful and creative. From a young age her parents took her to theatre and dance shows. This experience inspired her and is where she fell in-love with hair and make-up and the whole “magic” of the industry.
