Terri-Anne is a hairdresser and makeup artist by trade and has worked in the hair and beauty industry for 20+ years. She grew up around hairdressing and makeup as her mother was also a hairdresser and beauty consultant. Terri-Anne has a deep love of people and for the well-being, health and condition of their hair, skin and body. In particular, she is known to focus on restoring vitality, nourishment and balance while enhancing a person’s natural beauty – for both men and women.
Terri-Anne knows and supports others to feel and understand that true beauty comes from within, her time training and working as a complimentary-to-medicine practitioner has opened her to living in a way that nurtures that in herself and others.
Terri-Anne has expanded her career into business development, management and consulting and is currently undertaking a Master of Business Administration. Through her skills and experiences, Terri-Anne offers a much needed change in the industry: to understand that hair, skin and body products and services are only there to support the clients’ bodies and that true beauty comes first from a connection to the natural beauty within. Terri-Anne knows first-hand from working with and for the best hairdressers, beauty therapists and makeup artists worldwide and a multitude of clients, that everyone, including the industry itself, is seeking a beauty that can never be attained because of the nature of false imagery all around.
Therefore, Terri-Anne will be supporting in the True Beauty tent at the festival; a way to not cover up, but compliment and celebrate the natural exquisiteness of every girl and woman, knowing it is much more about the connection with the girls than the final product.
I love everything about the Girl to Woman Project and its Festivals and all that it represents. I would love to see it offered in every city of the world so that every girl and boy could have access to it. I love it because even before a young girl or woman walks through the doors of the festival, they are already honoured and held for the preciousness and beauty that they naturally are. Imagine if every girl in the world was offered that growing up, we would live in a very different world.” ~ Terri-Anne Connors
