Getting to know you. The Hair and Makeup Artist Network

Sometimes as a freelance makeup or hair stylist it feels like you are all alone paving your way in a big overwhelming world.
How do I get more jobs?
Where can I meet other makeup & hair people with similar interests and goals?
What about legal resources? Insurance?

I want to tell you about this great organization, The Hair and Makeup Artist Network or HMAN.

It's a networking organization for professional hair and makeup artistsin in the US.
Michelle Lee, a pro artist herself, saw a need that wasn't being filled in the freelance makeup & hair business community and founded the network. She and her team, including Myrna Powell, are a wonderful group of people dedicated to the field and helping other artists.

Here's some of the great things they offer:
•Videos: how to demos, character makeup, skincare, career marketing, and business related topics on how to advance your career.

•Networking events with Guest Speakers. I'll be guest speaking in September at a networking dinner. I'll post info as it gets closer.

•Articles on new products and topics related to work in the industry.

•Self Promotion Tools - including production listings, website/bus. card services, networking and marketing links, career counseling, employer listings, production listings, and job postings.

•Career tools and legal resources

•A Database of screened professional makeup and hair artists.

Michelle and her team are dedicated to ensuring that HMAN is made up of professional artists that are serious and dedicated to their craft.

It's a fantastic resource for people looking for artists for their productions, weddings, photo shoots, videos, etc.

So, whether you are an artist or a prospective employer this is a wonderful network to join.
