About me
Melanie Herriot


Hello!  I am Melanie Herriot, a freelance hair and makeup stylist available throughout Scotland & Ireland. 

I launched Melanie Herriot Hair & Makeup Styling after training at the prestigious Academy of Make-up in Glasgow. My time there gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the best creatives in the industry; Sara Hill and Karen Mcdougall ,just to name a few.  

In my opinion, one look does not fit all. . . . . .

I love to be creative and nothing excites me more than customising looks  specifically for you, your event or your professional projects  (except eating cakes of course).  I want to work together  to create the best look for YOU, complimenting your features and your individual style. I can also work with a  team of creatives, to any Hair or Make-up brief for fashion, editorial or commercial projects. 



My Story

I am a true Scottish lass and was born and bred in a wee town just outside Edinburgh. I have always had an interest in health and beauty and hold a BSc Honours in Food Nutrition & Health. This has provided me with the scientific background on all the nutrients we need to give our hair and skin a natural healthy glow.

After graduating in 2011, I caught the travel bug and landed a job in South Korea. The Korean beauty industry really fuelled my passion to pursue a career in hair and makeup. I was immersed in innovative cosmetics and make-up obsessed girls (and boys), and saw how much fun can be had with the vast amounts of products available to us. I also love how hair and makeup can instantly boost our confidence and take great satisfaction in transforming, not only your look, but also the way you feel. 

Since training with the Academy of Makeup, I have continued to fuel my passion and am lucky enough to call this my job. On top of transforming lovely ladies for special events, and blushing brides for their big day, I have great fun creating looks for fashion, editorial and commercial shoots. Previous clients include Famous Grouse, Iolla,  and Chalk Magazine.
