Dale Dorning – our Hair and Beauty Guru

Nov 27, 2022

In episode #62, Mel and Trish invite educator and celebrity hair and makeup artist Dale Dorning into the studio to talk about his fascinating career as well as hitting him up for hair and makeup tips for their 50ish tribe.

Dale has worked in the industry since leaving school and beginning an apprenticeship at 15 and has never looked back. His tenacity and strong work ethic lead to a life many of us can only dream of – travelling the world and working with huge-name celebrities such as Joanna Lumley, Miranda Kerr, Megan Gale, Teresa Palmer, Jennifer Hawkins, Oscar winner Jared Leto, singers James Blunt and Jessica Mauboy, Delta Goodrem and to top it off, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. His work has been showcased in fashion editorials, advertising campaigns, music videos, runway shows, entertainment industry red carpet events and television.

He’s an immensely talented 50isher who believes much of his success is due to a strongly held philosophy of never approaching his work with a negative perspective. It’s clearly paid dividends & the girls were thrilled to spend this time with him.

Enjoy the creative intellect of Dale Dorning.
