WHO I AM

Hi all, my name is Hary May. I'm a Melbourne based Freelance Hair & Makeup Artist with passion and creativity for making faces. With over 15 years experience I started an early career within the Beauty industry. I am also qualified as a Trainer & Assessor in Beauty and Makeup at Diploma level.

I would like to tell you a little bit about what makeup means to me. Makeup is an expression of beauty, a love for life, love for oneself and stature. Colour can have a connection to the heart and can not only make you look good but also feel good which in turn can affect others around you.

When I was a little girl my mother made my sister and I paint her nails every week. She showed us the nature of looking after yourself not just for vanity but because it was a tradition and a way of having time to spend as girls. That time was empowering, for we spoke of things we did not speak about around others. This tradition is still carried out to this day.

Now every time I perform a service from painting nails to painting faces I think of those times and try to share and recreate these moments with each and every individual I come across. These special moments help begin a new day whether it be for a beautiful bride, an actor/actress going on screen or even a model gracing the camera and catwalk I want it to mean something special.

I will never forget how you made me feel on my most special day nearly 2 years ago. So much love - Emmy Lou Rosie

Hary did my wedding hair and makeup in feb 2018. She did an amazing job with myself and my bridesmaids. So many people asked who did our hair and makeup. Not only is she awesome at what she does she is so down to earth,hilarious and so easy to get along with. I completely recommend Hary to everyone who needs their hair and makeup professionally taken care of xx Megan 

Hary is a magician! She did the most beautiful hair and make up for me for a special occasion. Can’t wait for next time (might just have to make up a reason to have it all done again!) Elisha  

Hary made me look and feel amazing on my wedding day. Nearly 3 years on and I still love looking at my photos and adore the look she created, not only for myself, but for my bridesmaids. Oh, and the lashes - to die for! Thank you Hary - Rose

Hary has a way of knowing what you want with your makeup, even if you're not quite sure yourself... She took me from Princess Fiona as a ogre to feeling like Marilyn Monroe for my brothers wedding. Couldn't recommend her more highly!- Trish
