The Hair & Makeup Artist Network is the first networking organization for Hair and Makeup Artists by Hair & Makeup Artists. The Hair & Makeup Artist Network is not another social networking website. We are a nationwide professional organization for working freelance Hair & Makeup Artists in the entertainment, fashion, salon, and bridal industry. Being self-employed isn’t easy. Our philosophy is to provide artists, who are serious about their craft, the essential tools for success through networking, benefits, coaching, and development of your ideal career path.
We host four networking events annually where we bring top industry professionals to guest speak and encourage networking and continued growth among artists in the industry. Our monthly networking events draw working professionals from all aspects of the beauty, film, television, photography, and salon industries. Event attendees include professionals with accomplished film industry, red carpet and celebrity experience as well as young beginner hair and makeup artists.
In addition to providing networking opportunities, we provide on-going career support, benefits, master classes and career building workshops. Your affiliation with our organization provides you a sense of community, connection to working artists in the industry, and a competitive edge in the work place.
HMAN was born from the experience Celebrity Makeup Artist, Michelle Lee, had upon starting her own Hollywood career in the mid-nineties. Now backed by a team with backgrounds in makeup, film, and event production, as well as industry veterans and experts, Lee now helps her fellow artists become stronger minded business professionals while stressing the importance of networking. "It's the only way to get work! We are just trying to make it easier."
It's true, networking is not a new concept, but neither are networking organizations. Just about every industry out there has their own networking organization, so why is the concept so foreign to Hair & Makeup Artists??? Everyone knows the best jobs out there are from either networking or job referrals from other artists. So why don't we have a networking organization? Well now we do!!
