Verity’s relationship with fashion began as soon as she could dress herself and go to war with her mother about it. Removing sleeves, wearing underwear as over-wear, trousers inside out, back to front and all manner of clothing creations were perfectly natural to her. The New Zealand countryside was perhaps an odd setting for this unusually dressed child, clearly a future in fashion and the arts was inevitable.

Verity didn't last long at school, too busy smoking, break dancing, hanging out with boys and cutting hair in the bathrooms at lunchtime........... still........

Beginning her hairdressing apprenticeship at the age of 15 meant that by 19 years old Verity was qualified, had won Hairdresser of the Year in Wellington and could move to the UK to study make-up and fulfill her dreams of working in the session world. Verity lived in London for 17 years during which time had the good fortune to work with many great names in music, advertising, fashion and film.

Verity moved to Sydney, Australia in 2006. She won AHFA Australia Make-up Artist of the Year 2010, became runner-up as HAIR EXPO Australia Session Stylist of the Year 2010, and a finalist in the AHFA Australia Make-up Artist of the Year Awards 2011.

She now resides in Auckland, New Zealand. She remains Creative Director @ Stevie English Hair, Sydney and Artistic Director for Original & Mineral Products, Australia and works as a Freelance Hair & Make-up Artist worldwide.

Still obsessed with fashion and all manner of 'dressing up' suggests Verity’s passion is unlikely to die and is the driving force in her life. Read Less
