Biography

Famous in the entertainment industry for her ability to transform any face, makeup and hair designer Frances Hannon first entered the realm of film and TV with a job working on the British sketch comedy series "The Kenny Everett Television Show" (BBC, 1981-88). Before long, Hannon was working regularly on miniseries like "Juliet Bravo" (BBC, 1980-85) and "The Singing Detective" (BBC, 1986), the latter of which won her a BAFTA award for Best Makeup. Hannon eventually transitioned into film, acting as makeup and hair designer for films like "The Man Who Knew Too Little" (1997) and "Rushmore" (1998). Working with Wes Anderson would prove to be a great fit for Hannon, and she would reteam with the auteur director for "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" (2004) and "The Darjeeling Limited" (2007). Hannon was fast becoming one of the most sought after makeup and hair designers in Hollywood, loved and appreciated by directors and actors alike for her rigorous research. In preparation for her work on "World War Z" (2013), Hannon set a goal of watching every zombie film ever produced. When it came time for her to partner with Anderson yet again, this time for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (2014), Hannon did copious research into the beard and mustache styles of the 1930s so that she could create a different but nonetheless accurate look for every character. Hannon's dedication was rewarded when she won another BAFTA award and an Academy Award for her work on the film.
