****Now booking for this summer all over California!***
Hello. I'm Summer Edwards. I work as an freelance makeup artist and hair stylist. My goal is always to mix professionalism with wacky fun in order to turn out an incredible end result. I live for making someone stand out to be admired and praised for the look they display! I am all about bright colors and LOUD statements.
Currently I split my time between Austin TX and the Central Coast of California (Open to travel). I go back and forth every other month. My goal is to move to CA permanently this summer. In Austin I am agency affiliated and do model coaching.
I am open to limited trade work in California only. I have already paid my dues in Austin
**Shameless self promotion** In my Fairy tale series, on top of hair and makeup I also created all the wardrobe and did creative direction for the shoot. It was one of my very favorite projects. You can see more of it here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fashion- … mp;fref=ts
**I don't get onto MM very frequently so please message me on Facebook or through my website for questions about rates or booking
I CANT WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

Miss Summer Edwards has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Her talent range is amazing. Its not often I find a person able to do hair, makeup, concept creating and directing at the same time. The creativity, laughter and talent she brings to every shoot makes every shoot one to remember. Not to mention, her vibrant and open minded personality make the comfort level 100% for all involved. When she has idea she sticks with it yet manages to re-create quickly if a problem occures... I give great appreciation for having a makeup artist as wonderful and well rounded as Summer. My portfolio has grown with diversity because of this young womans talent.

I happened to chance into working with Summer when scheduling a shoot with Kendall (MM# 1593032). I was impressed by the great makeup and hair styling she provided for the shoot, in addition to the direction she was able to provide to Kendall. She is the consummate professional, well prepared and able to adjust on the fly, yet she keeps things lighthearted and fun. I have had the great fortune to work with Summer on additional projects since then...she brings some wonderful concepts to the table and executes them flawlessly. I know I will be getting some great images in my portfolio as well as a good laugh. I highly recommend working with Summer, you will get her best and is worth every minute of her time. You're not just getting someone to do your hair and makeup, you are getting a partner in the shoot and a friend.

I have been working with Summer for 4 years now and she never dissapoints. I first met her when shooting for the Smoking Barrells Ink models and she was doing 10 or 12 full looks in a session. Her ideas and creative though process have a huge impact on the finished product. If you are looking for that next level in your images just turn her looose on your model and watch the hair fly. She is allways professional prepared and on time. Models love her clients love her and I love her. In addition to make up she is good at shoot direction an posing instrucion and has great insight on the fasion and modeling industry she is an asset in any situation. I have a continuing relationship with her and if you ever hire her for a job you will do the same.

I first worked with Sumer about a year ago on a last minute shoot. She stepped in and did a fantastic job. Since then, I've had the great pleasure to work with her on numerous occasions. Each time, she pushes me and challenges me to step up my game. I work very hard to make sure that my photography is up to capturing her artistry.
The best part about working with Summer is her strong sense of detail. She is quick to think on her feet, improvises quickly, and puts a lot of thought behind her efforts. On top of all that, she is an amazing stylist, putting together unique looks and pairing outfits and accessories in new and interesting ways. She's made shoes from scratch and created props out of nothing. She has become a valuable and indispensable part of my team.

"I met Summer Edwards five years ago through work and she is one of the most friendly people I’ve ever met. She’s a hit with everyone and very easy to have a conversation with. Summer knows exactly what she is doing when it comes to hair and makeup. When I was looking for someone to do my hair and makeup for the wedding, Summer was the first person I chose to meet with. My mother asked us to do a trial run. Summer was a great listener and took great note of what my mother and I both wanted for my big day. If we decided to change something, she was quick and efficient to alter it. I didn’t hesitate for a second to hire her for my wedding that very same day. On the day of the wedding, she was the first one to arrive. Not only is she great at her job, but she’s a good person to talk to. She calmed my nerves, made me laugh, and held up a good conversation with me while I got ready. Summer was one of the most helpful people on the day of my wedding, and it did not go unnoticed. My parents were so pleased with her and her professionalism, as well as my bridesmaids. I am very glad I went with Summer for my hair and makeup for my wedding day and I would highly recommend her to everyone."
