Shannon Darsow

Hair & Make-up Artist, Producer/ Travel Producer

How did you get into the industry?

My introduction into the industry was as talent on set locally in MN and grew to International. I met my now husband on a trip back home and decided to stay here in beautiful MN and finished my BA in Business Marketing and Advertising. During an internship with Artist Agency Terra Productions I realized I could be an Artist and combine all my experience, artistic talent, and degree and become a Professional Hair and Make-up Artist for Advertising. Almost 30 years later it is still an amazing career and I am loving adding the Travel Production piece to my business...once again combining all my gained crew and location experience, desire to support our amazing crews while they are on the road both in the US and Internationally, with my love of travel and exploration. I am here to support all your Hair and Make-up Artist and Travel Production needs.
