She has been a professional hairdresser for over 16 years completing her apprenticeship in an award winning salon in 2000 whilst also completing courses in makeup. She then spent several years with the top award winning salon in Newcastle competing and continually upgrading her skills doing training courses with Brad Nada, Sharon Blain and Lorna Evans.
Her passion from day one has always been in bridal styling and since returning from traveling Australia she realised The Whitsundays was a stunning place to live and continue her passion. She then completed her Diploma at the Academy of Makeup in Brisbane and started Airlie Beach Hair and Makeup. Every year she continually updates her skills with short courses and recently with Rae Morris who is four times Australian Makeup Artist of the Year and who is L’Oreal Paris longest serving makeup director. Carnie-Lee has been asked on several occasions over to the “One & Only Hayman Island” for bridal styling and she recently got married to her husband Chris in 2014.
“I love being apart of someone’s wedding day in this part of the world, it’s just so beautiful. It never feels like work especially when overlooking the turquoise water or traveling to one of the amazing islands. Since getting married myself I understand the excitement and stress of planning a wedding!!!” And choosing the right hair and makeup artist for the one day you want and need to look your best. I know that can be very stressful. (especially when you are a hair and makeup artist yourself choosing for your own wedding day)”
“The stylists and artists I choose to work alongside me are among some of the best in the industry. All are professionally trained and continue to update their skills, they love their job just as much as I do”
