Jean Manuel Domingos


Expert's eye ; all in the hands.
Passionate about hairdressing since the age of 14, I began my training by participating in the hairdressing competition in my region of Toulouse where I won prizes, in particular the regional hairdressing Grand Prix and second place in the regional cutting competition in the second year CAP.

While continuing my training in the hairdressing salon "DE LA TETE AUX PIEDS" (salon specialised in relooking), I started to take an interest in make-up.

As a true autodidact, inspired by renowned artists such as Val Garland or Mario Testino, I moved from my home town of Gers to the capital to continue my training and work with professional make-up brands.

The Parisian fashion shows brought me notoriety. Thus I became chief make-up artist at Dior after 4 years at M.A.C., performing with some training at the Juvantera school (Paris).
Then hired by the Harcourt studio, I was in charge of the shootings for VIP clients as head hairdresser/make-up artist.

All these references and this accumulated know-how led me to many collaborations, in particular for editorials in women's magazines, and tutorials with beauty bloggers.

Today, I have been working on my own for 12 years for photo studios, advertisements, e-business such as, setting up a production of Hair and Make-up Artists for Air France, creating images for DDP Japan, Louis Vuitton and many others.
