MANDY MARSH

DIRECTOR OF MAKEUP

CO-OWNER

Mandy is a highly experienced pro makeup artist and qualified trainer with over 17 years in the industry. Based in Sydney for over 11 years, Mandy was International Color Stylist for DIOR, Head MUA for The Wiggles and worked for Estee Lauder Companies in their Head Office.

Re-locating to the Hunter Valley 7 years ago, Mandy was a trainer at The Mask Academy & an account manager for JESSICA Cosmetics before IVORY STATE was created in early 2018.

IVORY STATE has grown way beyond initial expectations and is now a full time role for Mandy, who is absolutely passionate about the business and forever obsessed with makeup. 

JESS AKERS

DIRECTOR OF MAKEUP

CO-OWNER

Jess is a highly experienced hairdresser with over 12 years in the industry. In the salon that Jess began her career in, she received extensive training and experience in upstyles for both weddings and special events. It's safe to say, there is no style that Jess can't design or re-create effortlessly.

Jess established her current boutique salon, JALush Hair Design over 6 years ago. Specialising in colour, cuts and styling,  JALush has a huge client base that continues to grow.

IVORY STATE allows Jess to channel her passion as a upstyle specialist and showcase her extensive experience in weddings, editorial and special events well into the future.
