Ciona Johnson King


Ciona is one of the most respected beauty experts in the industry. As a hair and make-up artist she’s worked on glossy magazines, fashion catwalks and video shoots. Her clients have won Oscars, Grammys and Olympic Golds. Applying her favourite sentiment – Beauty, Health, Happiness – to every aspect of her life, she knows that true radiance isn’t just about concealer and lippy. It comes from the heart.

After training in hairdressing, wig-making, beauty therapy and theatrical make-up, Ciona began her career creating cutting-edge looks for musicians such as PJ Harvey, Tricky, Goldfrapp and David Bowie. World tours followed before Ciona returned to London, unpacked her suitcases and became beauty presenter on Channel 4′s ‘Big Breakfast’ and then ITV1′s ‘GMTV’.

Ciona Johnson KingCiona Johnson KingCiona continues to work with some of the hottest names in showbiz – from bombshells (Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow) to bad boys (Benicio Del Toro, Mickey Rourke); from heroes (Bond star Daniel Craig) to villains (Ralph Fiennes, the evil Lord Voldermort); and from the sexy stars of Twilight to the cheeky kings of comedy, Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant. Equally at home working on portrait shoots or TV interviews, when the stars ask for Ciona they know they’ll get more than just a dab of powder. When they sit in that chair, whether for 5 minutes or 50, they’ll also find calm. Ciona frequently works with brands such as Clinique, Origins and L’Oreal and her thoughts on the beauty world appear in magazines on a regular basis. When she’s not making the A-listers look and feel good, you can find her in the park practising her yoga asanas and karate katas. Mascara or martial arts? They’re both as important as each other.
