Emily Zempel is a highly-trained, Los Angeles-based Makeup Artist, licensed Hair Stylist, and Men’s Groomer. Her passion for beauty developed when she built a “garage salon” at 12 to be able to cut and color. This first outlet for her creative expression started as a weekend and after-class business throughout middle and high school, and eventually became her full-time job. Zempel continued working and growing her business while attending The Aveda Institute of Minneapolis. At 18, she won a National Award for her editorial work and relocated to LA in order to further pursue her career.
Today, some of her top clients include O’shea Jackson Jr., Sam Mendes, Bill Skarsgard, Zasie Beets, Laura Marano, Zach Galifianakis, Machine Gun Kelly, Kyrie Irving, Bex Taylor Klaus, and Ella Purnell. Her work has been featured at notable events such as Sundace, TIFF, SXSW, the Academy Awards, the Grammys, the Golden Globes, and the Emmys, and published in GQ, Hollywood Reporter, Vulture, Teen Vogue, Cultured, and L’official, working with brands such as Adidas, L'oreal, Lulu Lemon, among many others.
Zempel is an eco-conscious artist supporting sustainable brands and cruelty free products.
