Claire Hanson – Creative Director
Before setting her sights on the bright lights of London back in 1992, Claire was originally from the beautiful county of Lancashire in northern England, where her down to earth nature has certainly rooted from.
An established Hair and Make-up Artist with over 20 years of experience. Her clientèle being from the world of Fashion, Music, Advertising, Weddings and celebrity/VIP’s.
In 2007, through her long established relationship with Universal Music, Claire was introduced to Mr Lionel Richie. Her work with him went from grooming, to travelling the world as his assistant which she does to the present day.
Due to her increasing busy schedule and demand from her loyal clients, Claire together with her business partner Dominique Ventura, went in search for New Talent and the idea of forming a team. This they did, and have now seen over 3,000 artists in their search. From these selected individuals, an Elite team known as the M.A.C.H Team was created.
The team now work for all major clients and events, as Claire now works behind the scenes developing exciting new projects and constant client awareness. Her passion for ‘passing on of my knowledge’ as she describes it, has transformed in the work of her Master Classes.
