Karen is the most brilliant hair and make up artist who I have had the great pleasure of working with on shoots and for events. We have done classic looks and bold contemporary ones and she is not only fantastically talented and inventive, but is also the most beautifully calming person to work with so that you are camera ready in a great state of mind.

Emilia Fox, Actor


There are only two Hair and Makeup Artistes I let anywhere near me, and one of them is Karen Mason. She works magic with my hair and uses subtle skills to emphasise my eyes without making me look too ‘made-up’. But best of all she is an amazing spirit and a wonderful person to be around… I don’t want to leave home without her!

Lesley Manville, Actor


Karen Mason is a true artiste. She enhances your face, and lifts it to it’s stellar best. Not a pretty mask, but a stunning visage that even changes your attitude! I tell friends of every hue and bone structure ‘hie thee to Ms Mason and she can magnify your good looks. A joy to work with!

Alfre Woodard, Actor


Karen Mason is among the best in the business – technically supremely equipped, flexible, and with a real eye for flair. Plus she’s great to work with…

Michael Simkins, Actor
