Sarah Di Maria Poole is a freelance make-up artist and licensed hairdresser in Los Angeles, CA. Raised between the United States and Italy, she attributes her unique perspective on high-fashion, beauty, and style to her multi-cultural background.
Sarah started her make-up training at CMC Makeup Academy where she learned TV and Film Make-Up. Expanding her knowledge in make-up artistry, she became certified in fashion/photography/runway makeup at Making Beauty Academy in Milan, Italy. There she met her mentor, Vanessa Udovicich (make-up artist for Pat McGrath, Chanel, etc.) who taught her top industry tips and tricks. Since then, Sarah has worked on commercials and photoshoots for Guitar Center, Target, and internationally for HSE TV shopping network in Rome, Italy. After mastering make-up, Sarah furthered her education in beauty, and attended Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in Santa Monica. Additionally, she took specialized courses at the renowned Aldo Coppola Academy for hairdressing in Milan. She made her start at Rust Salon in West Hollywood where she met her next mentor Tara Tatangelo, master hair/make-up artist and owner.
After growing her clientele in boutique hair salons in LA, she is now at This Or Die Salon in the heart of Atwater Village. Sarah also works as a freelance make-up artist and is now certified in permanent make-up, specifically microblading and shading.
While Sarah believes that precision and consistency are a must in the art of hair and make-up, she also believes that originality and creativity are necessary to make your mark in the world of beauty.
