At a young age, Sunnie Brook knew she has a passion for helping people and expressing her creativity. With the guidance of her mother and father, she decided to get her license in cosmetology and explore the art of beauty.
She started her career as a makeup artist in 1998 for Lancome and received her formal training as a hairstylist in the UK under the leadership of Toni & Guy International Artistic Director Craig Mason. In 2005 she opened her own salon in San Luis Obispo, California and over the next four years partnered with John Paul Mitchell Systems as a National Educator in color, cutting and styling training hairdressers around the world.
In 2009, due to her growing celebrity, editorial, and print clientele she sold her salon and moved to Los Angeles. Over the past few years she has had the opportunity to work with distinguished directors and photographers such as Jonas Akerlund, Alberto Tolot, Alexi Lubomirski, Roman Coppola, Francesco Carrozzini, Art Streiber, Markus Klinko, Ruven Afanador, and Steven Lippman and has had her work featured in Conde Nast publications including Vanity Fair, LUCKY, Allure, SELF, Glamour, and many others. Clients are amongst celebrities and musicians Chris Hemsworth, Jamie King, Abigail Spencer, Jenny Mollen, Robin Thicke, Hailee Steinfeld, Rose McGowan, Donnie Wahlberg, Michael Biehn, Jeff Bridges, Julie Delpy, Lindsey Morgan, Michael Scott, Chris Pine, Joel Madden, Travis Fimmel, Lana Del Rey, Usher, Mumford & Sons, Bradley Soileau, Gavin DeGraw, Aloe Blaac, Cat Power, Best Coast, NKOTB, Imagine Dragons, Alice in Chains, Crystal Bowersox, George Canyon, The Goo Goo Dolls, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Weezer. She has worked on America’s Next Top Model, the Bachelor, Beverly Hills Housewives, and the Dr. Phil Show.
In 2011, Sunnie Brook started her Beauty Blog. Through this platform, she educates her audience on the heart of beauty and celebrates the playful side of being a woman and “dressing up.” With the opening of her online shop in 2012, Sunnie Brook Beauty, she has pledged to give back 10% of all shop proceeds to a non-profit she is personally invested in called Two Wings. The Two Wings organization vows to help survivors of sex trafficking in pursuing their dream vocation, beginning in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
Currently the Celebrity Stylist for Head & Shoulders, Sunnie Brook remains committed to delivering timeless, relevant styles to her clients worldwide and hopes to celebrate the beauty of impact within her community.
