Verity’s relationship with fashion began as soon as she could dress herself and go to war with her mother
about it.
Removing sleeves, wearing underwear as outerwear, trousers inside out, back to front and all manner of odd creations were perfectly natural to her. The New Zealand countryside was perhaps an odd setting for this unusually dressed child; clearly a future in fashion was inevitable.   

Verity didn't last long at school; too busy smoking, break-dancing, hanging out with boys and cutting hair in the loos at lunch... Still, dropping out and beginning her hairdressing apprenticeship at the age of 15 meant that by 19 years old Verity was qualified, won Hairdresser of the Year in Wellington and had moved to the UK to study make-up and fulfill her dreams of working in the session world.

Verity lived in London for 17 years, during which time had the good fortune to work with many great names in music, advertising, fashion and film. Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, U2, Primal Scream, Tim Bret-Day, David Bailey to name a few.
Verity moved in Sydney, Australia in 2006 and became Creative Director at Stevie English Hair whilst continuing her freelance session work. She won AHFA Australia Makeup Artist of the Year 2010, became runner-up HAIR EXPO Australia Session Stylist of the Year 2010, and a finalist in the AHFA Australia Make-up Artist of the Year Awards 2011.
Verity returned to New Zealand, 2012. She resides in Auckland maintains her role with Stevie English, is a freelance Hair & Make-up Artist with 62 Talent and Filmcrews and is working with Mac Cosmetics and Davines Hair teaching make-up & hair sessions at Arte Corte Charity School, Havana, Cuba.

Still obsessed with fashion and all manner of 'dressing up' suggests Verity’s passion is unlikely to die and is very much a driving force in her life.
