“Jodie and I had discussed the idea of a makeup/grooming workshop for all our waiting staff, as it’s an area I believe all high-end establishments should focus on. She really is an expert. The girls loved it and the results are instant, with positive comments received from guests and staff alike.  After the masterclass the girls were looking and feeling so much better about themselves and so it was a tangible improvement for all concerned. The most pleasing aspect was when Jodie returned to see how the girls were doing and she found almost all using the tips suggested. Not only was Jodie a true expert in her field, but was incredibly friendly allowing everyone to discuss any insecurities they might have regarding their appearance.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Background Beauty for any such work within the luxury service sector and look forward to working with her again in the near future”.

Every client has a different brief and every time Jodie delivers exceptional results. Cellar Society works with many of the luxury fashion brands and when hair & makeup is needed for an event, we know who to call!”
– Bertie de Rougemont, Founder and Managing Director at Cellar Society

“She was so patient and made me feel like a million dollars just sat in my jeans. On the day I wanted to look natural but also stand out. Jodie made me look dewy and elegant, which gave me confidence.”

“Working with Jodie is an absolute pleasure, she always knows exactly the kind of look I am after, and often makes the subjects look far better than I can imagine. This makes my job a lot easier. Plus her charming personality and ease at getting along with people means she is a real asset to any shoot as it further helps the sitter relax and feel comfortable.”
