Colette Johnson - Director 

Colette is a multi award-winning makeup artist and hair designer with experience spanning almost 20 years across various areas within the industry.

Colette is also a professional and fully accredited trainer - offering professional training in makeup artistry and hair design from our studios in Basingstoke and Burnham.

"CJ Beauty & Co was born in 2009 when I decided it was time to fuse my experience in makeup and my skills in business development...and I haven't looked back!  I'm a self-confessed makeup addict - I love makeup and I love making people feel special!  - What a better combination to work in such an exciting industry!

Nine years on CJ Beauty & Co is now an employer and my business is my pride and joy! - CJ Beauty & Co continues to go  from strength to strength!  My business has grown almost entirely through recommendation which is wonderful and still brings the biggest smile to my face as brides continue to recommend us time and time over!  It's also such an honour to be recommended by so many beautiful wedding venues who share our passion and dedication to exceptional service.  We are also Wedition's Star Supplier for Bridal Hair & Makeup (Lizzie may be a little biased there as we did her hair and makeup for her big day!!)

The Training Academy was born in 2015 offering specialist training courses in makeup artistry, hair design and short courses to support makeup artistry.  I insist on keeping my class sizes small so I can deliver the best possible level of training - up to 5 students from our studio in Burnham, and up to 2 students from our studio in Basingstoke.

I'm so excited to be supporting Newbury College throughout 2019 with their makeup training programmes!"
