Tahira began her career as a makeup artist in Beauty Salons in Canada – working weekends while still in university.
Honing her skills in the fashion and wedding industries and learning hair cutting/styling in the salons, Tahira moved on to feature films and commercials for many years. In 2006, Tahira came to London where she was able to pursue her career as a Film Makeup + Hair designer and personal Makeup Artist to Actors like Jeremy Irons and Viggo Mortensen.
