Lorraine Glynn, Hair Designer

IFTA and BAFTA-winning hair designer Lorraine Glynn started off working in salons, making the move to films in the mid-90s. Several large feature films followed, including ‘Intermission’, ‘Bloody Sunday’ and ‘About Adam’. Lorraine won her first IFTA in 2007 for her work (with make-up artist Lynn Johnston) on transforming Cillian Murphy’s character into drag queen Kitten in ‘Breakfast on Pluto’.

Since then, she has won three more IFTA’s (2010’s ‘The Take’, 2012’s ‘Albert Nobbs’ and 2014’s ‘Byzantium’) and a BAFTA TV Award for her work on ‘My Boy Jack’, the true story of author Rudyard Kipling. She has also worked on Sofia Coppola’s high-budget period piece ‘Marie Antoinette’, ‘Tristan and Isolde’ and fantasy epic mini-series ‘Neverland’. Most recently, Lorraine was hair designer on Oscar-nominated ‘Brooklyn’, ‘The Secret Scripture’, and upcoming ‘The Professor and the Madman’.
