GULDBAGGE for best Makeup/Hair


I won a Guldbagge for best Makeup/Hair for my work with Johannes Nyholm’s “the Giant”!!!

In addition to being responsible for Makeup/Hair, I was also costume designer (a category that I was actually nominated for in 2011).

Being in charge of both costume and makeup/hair meant a lot of leeway in developing several of the characters. I want to thank director Johannes Nyholm for giving me this fantastic freedom! I would also like to thank Julia Tegström who was my costume assistant, and Lena Sundin for her expert help with hair coloring. I share the award with Love Larson and Eva von Bahr, who were brought in to help out with the prosthetic makeup for the main character.
