Hair and Makeup Stylist

Not your everyday stylist position. Collaborate with a full in-house video production team on portfolio-worthy projects: a steady job you will look forward to.

Position Available:

  • Part-time hair and makeup stylist for video production, with optional wardrobe styling duties.
  • We are also hiring for other positions (videographer / shoot producer, graphic designer, etc.). If you know someone in any of these areas, please do them a quick and friendly favour by letting them know about this posting.

Position Overview:

  • Permanent and steady position.
  • Dates can be scheduled well in advance if you need them to be.
  • Hours are generally during traditional office hours, as opposed to evenings.
  • Days are typically between 5 to 8 hours long when video production is scheduled.
  • Duties will include styling hair, applying video-shoot makeup, and optionally assisting with wardrobe selection.
  • Stylist should be an expert in using hot tools, styling products, brushes, and makeup (particularly photo-ready or on-camera specific products). You do not need to own all of this equipment already.
  • Stylist will not be required to bring wardrobe, only to provide styling tips and assistance when requested.
  • Stylist will not be required to provide haircuts, but we are open to that if your skills allow for it.
  • Work in a respectful and safe environment with great people. You will naturally be expected to promote that environment by sanitizing tools and applicators between actors.
  • Clients will consist mainly of our employees and executives, company clients, and professional actors.
  • Focus on achieving noticeably remarkable, Hollywood-level, portfolio-worthy results.
  • Opportunity to collaborate on projects for exciting, award-winning products and services, with world-class video editors, videographers, script writers, and motion graphics designers.
  • Occasional opportunities to work with famous actors for videos and other advertisements.
  • Occasional opportunities to optionally assist with movie costume designing and even special FX makeup and hair.
  • Employee will be on company payroll. No issues receiving prompt payment as agreed upon, unlike the common problems found in moonlighting short-term jobs.
  • Travel is rare but may be occasionally required.
  • Stylist position is not in a rushed salon setting where you only perform one type of styling or where quality results aren't appreciated or aren't captured on video for the long term.

Requirements:

  • Very skilled with both female and male hair styles.
  • Very skilled with both female and male video make-up.
  • Able to work in a standing position for long periods of time.
  • Takes pride in work.
  • No specific requirements for education or industry experience. We evaluate each applicant based on merit rather than formalities.

About The Work Environment:

  • Friendly, non-threatening, and non-political environment.
  • We are a great environment for both outgoing people and those who are very shy and introverted (so long as it fits the part).
  • Auditions are done efficiently, performers can expect very short wait times at auditions, aiming for less than 15 minutes.
  • Seating available before audition, no standing line-ups.
  • Typically auditions will be done in front of a green-screen with cameras running.
  • Our productions are typically scripted by our own full-time professional writers and video edited by our own full-time, professional editors.
  • Many productions are in the studio and green-screen, but some shoots will be on-location.
