When you find someone with passion, creativity and raw talent, you hold on to them!
This is exactly why we are so thrilled to add the world-class expertise of the very gifted Emma Baglee to our team.
Emma will be joining us at Hair to Ware, 2 – 3 days a week and brings her formidable skills in permanent makeup, microblading, and scalp micropigmentation treatments.
Who is Emma Baglee?
Emma’s artistic family background led her to explore many forms of art while growing up. She started her career in the field of healthcare, after which she graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2004 which is when she launched into the beauty industry.
Since then, she has become the go-to makeup artist in Northampton and attracts clients from across the UK.
What more can we tell you about this amazing lady?
- She holds 26 years of experience within the healthcare and beauty industries in addition to being an award-winning international Micropigmentation Artist.
- Having qualified as a permanent makeup artist 11 years ago, Emma is proud to hold the coveted Platinum Elite artist award.
- Emma is one of only a handful of micropigmentation artists in the United Kingdom to have trained in all four stages of the Nouveau Contour and KBPro program and is qualified to Master Elite level in permanent makeup.
- In her 10th year of permanent makeup, Emma won the prestigious awards of SPMU Brow Specialist 2020, and Medical Tattoo Specialist 2020. In order to accomplish this, she performed some of the most advanced procedures for brows, eyeliner, lips, scalp micropigmentation for hair loss, and a range of restorative treatments.
Emma has evolved into an award-winning international artist and educator, a highly qualified micropigmentation professional with a business built on a strong international reputation.
In addition to performing her magic on loyal clients, Emma has chosen to share her knowledge and experience with others.

These courses cater for all levels from beginners to advanced and cover all aspects of permanent makeup including brows, eyeliner and lips.
Rounding off the comprehensive training, Emma’s academy provides business development support through her MyPMUMentor program. This support is a valuable resource for new technicians as they strike out on their own.
Giving the Gift of Confidence
It must be clear by now that we’re raving fans of this incredibly talented lady, which makes her input into our business so exciting. However, as qualified and talented as Emma is, her real skills lie within her kindness and empathy.
As a cancer survivor, Emma understands firsthand the challenges people face when dealing with this devastating illness. While the disease itself wreaks havoc on the body, it’s often the mental and emotional scarring that takes the longest time to heal.
People suffering through or recovering from cancer can be exceptionally fragile and sensitive as they try hard to make their way back to a sense of normality. Many lack confidence, have lost their sense of self, and feel incredibly alone and frightened.
It’s with this in mind that Emma and her well-trained team approach each individual client.
Micropigmentation and permanent makeup are certainly not an instant fix, but the results offer each person an improved sense of confidence.
The Hidden Effects of Hair Loss
Whether from cancer treatments or other medical conditions, hair loss is undoubtedly devastating.
Those with personal experience can vouch for the comment made by Dr Francis in her article on hair loss in women where she says, “It goes without saying that hair loss – regardless of gender – can be devastating. It can dent a person’s self-esteem and negatively affect their overall quality of life.
“Studies on the psychosocial impact of hair loss have found patients’ self-esteem, body image and self-confidence to be negatively impacted. Known psychosocial complications include depression, low self-esteem, altered self-image and less frequent and enjoyable social engagement.”
She adds that hair loss can be a trigger for a range of social and emotional problems, reduced work performance, overeating, self-neglect, and retreating from social interactions.
Hair loss for men is certainly problematic, but it’s more socially acceptable than for women. Traditionally, women’s hair is a symbol of their femininity and is often closely associated with their sense of attractiveness. When this starts to thin, their self-esteem plummets. They feel unattractive and they assume that their partner feels the same way.
These deeply damaging emotions must be dealt with gentleness and consideration.
