Composure was founded in January 2011 and the vision of the company has always been to enhance natural beauty instead of changing it completely. Although our foundation is solidly based on bridal hair and makeup, in 2014 wedding coordination and planning has become a large part of what we do as well, thanks to our love for weddings and our knowledge and experience in this industry.
Passion, hard-work and a love for what we do is clearly visible in all our work. Composure is renowned for offering a professional and personalized service to all our clients, we bring life to the visions that you have always dreamed of.
As a young girl I always dreamt of making the world a beautiful place but never quite knew how I would go about it or where to begin. I have always been interested in fashion, style and trends but I didn’t know where I would fit into an ever growing industry. My love for styling hair was always visible to others and it was only when my mother suggested that I go study hairdressing instead of business management that I knew where I would begin creating beauty in this world.
In 2008 I studied at “Terenzo Hairdressing Academy”, this is where I found my love for creating the most beautiful up-styles for women. Upon completing my studies I worked at Carlton Hair and enhanced my level of knowledge and skill, this opportunity also allowed me to work on larger projects such as “SA Fashion Week”, which got me working with some big names in designing as well.
After a year at Carlton Hair I felt the need to move on to bigger things and my experiences with them showed me how much more I was capable of. This eventually led to my enrollment at “The Makeup Issue” where I found a way to express myself more creatively.
- As a top student in my class upon graduation, I was offered many opportunities which I turned down for something greater.
In 2011 Composure was born and my dreams started to become a reality. I finally knew how I would make the world a more beautiful place and would do so for others with special moments and memories being made along the way.
I believe that every woman is beautiful and by simply enhancing their natural beauty it builds confidence and shows them how gorgeous they really are. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be where I am today, I am lucky enough to call myself an international makeup artist and hairstylist, I have worked with so many big names in and around SA, I have been fortunate enough to see my work published on front covers and I have worked with some of SA’s best photographers. I put my heart and soul into my work and into my company. I will always strive to be better and to offer my clients the very best because every day I get to make women look and feel absolutely gorgeous, there is no better feeling.
Composures main focus has always been on bridal work, it’s our favourite part of what we do. There is no greater feeling in this world than being a part of a brides’ special day and helping her to create the most immaculate hairstyle and makeup look to compliment her dress and her wedding by making her new husband fall in love all over again.
Having done so many wonderful weddings and having a lot of happy brides behind our name and by going that extra mile to make our brides feel very special on their big day we can proudly say that we offer the very best in bridal hair and makeup.
If we had to describe our bridal work using a few words we would use; glamorous, elegant, timeless, sophisticated and stylish. Composure is the hair and makeup styling company that not only represents these words through our image and our craft but also by offering these elements to all women in search of them, we can confidently say that we achieve this every time.
It is our professional work ethic, constant trend watching, our diverse range of styles and looks as well as our undeniable skill that allows Composure to offer only the best in hair styling and makeup artistry. We believe that every Bride deserves only the very best!
Let the creative juices start flowing! Composure always brings the element of sexy and gorgeous to the table when it comes to a photo shoot, this where we let our hair down and see what we are made of creatively. It does not matter if you are looking for something simple and natural or totally over the top and fun, we can make it happen. We have worked with many of SA’s top photographers and have helped transform ordinary women into extraordinary super models. Our creative flare has always given us that extra edge when it comes to creating the perfect photograph.
Composure has been very privileged to work at SA Fashion week and Mercedes Fashion week doing both hair and makeup as well as working on the Miss Namibia pageants for the past 2 years doing all the hair and makeup for the photo shoots and the pageant. Composure has travelled through South Africa transforming photoshoots into a new experience for men and women by creating the most fantastic looks for each photograph.
Does your staff reflect your company's corporate brand in the best possible way?
Regardless of the size of your organization, when your business was initially started time and money was spent on developing your corporate brand to ensure that you have market presence. You will have chosen the right premises and staff to ensure your brand is seen in the forefront of its industry. Companies these days understand the importance of image when it comes to the strength of a brand; they fully understand that having the right brand will attract new and potential customers, which helps grow their business. Employees need to not only represent your brand by working with the company’s true values and ethos but in many cases they will be the first point of contact your new business clients meet, this first impression is crucial and needs to be positive.
Composure provides customized workshops, presentations and one-to-one training for the following:

It’s hard to explain the outcome when a bunch of creative people get together for 2 weeks and create different looks every day while traveling through another country, but if we had to sum it up we would say it’s an incredible experience and every year brings new challenges and something different.
Since 2012 Composure has been fortunate enough to work on the Miss Namibia Pageant as the lead stylist. Composure worked with the 12 finalists doing their hair and makeup for all different shoots and appearances, teaching them the basics to makeup and how to represent themselves in everyday life. It’s an amazing feeling to help these girls with their self image and watching them grow into beautiful women who represent their country with so much pride.
Working on pageants and doing the finalists’ hair and makeup gives us a feeling of excitement and it gives us the sense that we are part of something so much bigger which is a wonderful experience. It’s such an honor to work with these girls doing hair and makeup and working with the directors of the pageant and the other crew members. We always make new friends and new memories that we treasure; we look forward to being a part of the Miss Namibia Pageant every year
“Hi Angelique :)
I would just like to say THANK YOU for everything you did on my wedding day. You make me look and feel like a princess.
You made me look flawless on my wedding day, perfect! Just the way I wanted to look. Thank you for always being so professional, sweet, kind and helpful with all your advice on what will look better or what about this way.
Thank you for being a part of our wedding day! I have attached some photos of the wedding. Take care.
I have to say my skin was never as bad as on the day of my wedding the stress and anxiety just all came out, but you took charge with your calm and controlled demeanour and somehow managed to make me look lovely. Even after I arrived late you were ready to go and assisted with the bridal party also.
Your work was fantastic and I was so happy with the end result. Even though I do not wear makeup you managed to apply my makeup so that I did not feel like an ace of base but it suited me. You found my base colour, indulged my request for a new colour lipstick and sourced it for me.
I am not the most photogenic person but I really nice in the picture and I think that is due to your marvellous work. You indulged my every request thank you. Also thank you for doing my sister in laws hair on the day she looked stunning also.
May composure grow from strength to strength and I will be sure to tell all my friends and family about your professionalism and skill.
Thank you for also coming to my home to do the trial which is not a service provided by most make-up artists you have to go to them.
I herewith would like to thank you for firstly being a part of our very special day! You made the special day even more special by adding to the picture a more beautiful touch of your art in makeup artistry and secondly your hair techniques with myself and the girls.
We were all very impressed with your work and would like to recommend you to the future brides as your clearly add value to the special day not only by adding beauty, but by being the great person that you are, with your personality and skills.
“Good Morning Angelique
I would like to thank you for the awesome service received from yourself on our wedding day. I would gladly recommend your services to anyone that would like to be treated like the princess they are on their wedding day, and with the hair that you had to re-do a few times for a little 5 year old girl that just thought hair that is that perfect shouldn't stay that way for very long... And you have done it smiling and laughing, and the make up that you have done for her free of charge, that was just gorgeous. And with that my hair and make up was perfect and flawless the whole night. You did a great job thank you so much for that, and doing it with a smile and great patience.
Thank you for making it perfect.
Hope this finds you well?
