Calling all qualified hairstylists and makeup artists.

As a national business, we have a couple of positions available in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. We are immediately recruiting skilled hairstylists and/or qualified makeup artists for the busy end-of-yea/festival season in 2023/2024. We have paid positions at New Year’s Eve events (Lost Paradise and Beyond the Valley.) To a lesser extent, we are also on the hunt for artists more generally across all major cities.

So a bit about us?

We exist to make the world more colourful + creative + fun + inclusive. But also less boring and sh*t. We do this through bright conscious cosmetics and a talented gang of artists from all corners of Australia.

Who we work with?

Glitoris works with Festival leaders like Splendour in The Grass, Mardi Gras, Midsumma Carnival, Falls and Spilt Milk. We partner with household brands to the likes of Nike, Cotton On, Garnier, Nova, Hello Fresh, AAMI insurance, Flight Center, Smirnoff, Archie Rose and more.

Other deets

  • This job ideally suits people who have had some formal training/experience in makeup and/or hair.
  • Typically this job suits people who a) run their own freelance business (you will need an ABN as a minimum) and b) have availability on weekends and in the evenings.
  • Many of our artists run their own makeup/beauty businesses and work in film/TV, editorial, theatre, face painting, drag or other creative pursuits.
  • As a general rule, we hire non-dickheads. We attempt to hunt out people who value working in inclusive environments that celebrate people and creativity.
  • We pride ourselves with many of our core team of freelancers (85% of our team to date) who have worked with Glitoris for 6+ years.
  • Some artists like working for Glitoris because it is super fun, mostly because it is often different for a typical MUA/hairstylist day-to-day, others because of the opportunities it provides (both creatively, through friendship and from a network perspective) and all love it as its a chance to be themselves in the workplace.
