Hi. I'm Lina.

I do hair and makeup in Toronto

thanks for stopping by :)

I'm an award-winning hair and makeup artist based in Toronto. I've been a makeup artist since 2007; a hairstylist since 2017.

There's a 10 year gap because I went back to school to learn all about hair after having a great makeup career in Dubai.

Now I specialize in cutting (I don't understand hair colour for the life of me), because I love it. It's immediate, and I love the sound of the scissors snipping away dead ends (#bliss).

I also do killer blowdries and simple up-dos. None of that uber coiffed, plastered cement on your head. 

So if you're looking for someone who does beautiful makeup and simple hair, drop me an email and let's chat.

To my favourite makeup artist:
Thank you so so much for all your hard work! Everyone was raving about my makeup! Love you so much!

I was so in love with that plum, brown eye shadow you used. The makeup stayed all night and didn’t budge, and even though it was heavy it looked so natural. Thank you.

I was watching your work for years, and when I got engaged I said I have to book you. My makeup was perfect! Thank you so much.
