ABOUT OUR GUEST SPEAKERS:
Bruce Grayson - Celebrity Makeup Artist
Bruce Grayson is one of the rare few to be born and raised in Los Angeles. Bruce was exposed to the art of beauty makeup at a very early age by his father, acclaimed, Hollywood, make-up artist, Dave Grayson who did the likes of Lauren Bacall and Rita Hayworth.Bruce literally grew up on movie sets watching his father work with movie stars John Wayne, Michael Douglas and Bruce Willis. Bruce thought of these celebrity icons not as stars but as family because his father approached his clients with professionalism and level headedness that was in turn, passed on to Bruce.
Soon after graduating from Hollywood High School, Bruce was afforded the opportunity of working alongside some of Hollywood’s greatest artists. In this environment, Bruce was able to fine-tune his craft and soon establish himself as one of Hollywood's top Make-up Artists.
Since that time, the Emmy nominated Make-up Artist has traveled all over the United States, Europe and Asia as a spokesman for several cosmetic and skincare companies. His celebrity and editorial work has been seen in many magazines including Vanity Fair, Harpers Bazaar and Vogue. Bruce is in charge of the make up departments for the Emmy Awards, the Grammys and the Academy Awards television broadcasts. He has also run make up teams for the Democratic National Convention. Bruce has had the pleasure of working for President Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton during both terms in the White House and has also worked for President Barack Obama

Luke is constantly working with television show creators to develop character “looks” and identities and can often be found on the set of hit shows. In fact, show creators enjoy Lukes’ talent so much that one show, “Suddenly Susan”, had a story line that revolved around having your hair done at Lukaro with Luke being written in as acharacter. They actually had an actor made up to look just like Luke!
“Every hairstylists’ goal is to cater to the individual and find a cut that works within their life. However, I also like to encourage my clients’ sense of fun. I urge them to change every once in a while, not you know, drastically, but to add a little pizzazz and a feeling of adventure. The balance we try to achieve with the client is flexibility, providing thecut that allows them to experiment with different styles.” - Luke O'Connor
CHRIS BURGOYNE - Makeup Department Head & Emmy Award Winner

From his early days working in FX shops, teaching and lecturing in Los Angeles and around the globe, he sets his sights on goals that personally stimulate him, develops relationships that mean much more than a job, and despite his trademark firey mustache, he rarely looses his cool.
