Profile and About Dhyana Renee MakeupArtist/Fx Hairstylist


That's Dhyana Renee with Jesse Ventura, they are at the WTC interviewing NY's Finest for his "Conspiracy Theory" Series. A.Smith and M. Breverman wanted her to cut Jesse's hair off. He wanted his hair. So, when they landed in Battery Park, she walked to Duane Reade and picked up a package of tiny black rubber bands. Then she slicked his hair back, put it into a ponytail and groomed the flyways. They called it his "Steven Segal Look". Everyone was happy, and his look for the TV Series was born.

After leaving the ballet world, Dhyana attended a private art school in Florida, intent on becoming a fine portrait artist working in pencils and pastels. Her journey then took a turn and brought her onto this path which began in Toronto, ON. There she was mentored by Award Winning Makeup Artists: Jordan Samuel, Colin Penman, and Patricia Keighran. Then she set sail to the NY Metro area, where she worked steadily for 8 years, and became known for her cleanliness, calm demeanor and beautiful work. Dhyana had become a sought after Makeup Artist/SFX Artist and Hairstylist which was met with gratitude andva heart full of joy. Those winds of change have blown once again and now she has landed in Atlanta, GA. (Y'allywood)

Throughout her career, various production companies have hired her to work in film, television, advertising, commercial, editorial, fashion editorial, corporate and live theatre. With a naturally artistic approach to her work, she is always intent on creating a masterpiece with the talent that is placed in front of her. Whether it be creating a specific character type on an actor or re-defining a model's beauty, she demonstrates out - standing work. With openness and a keen eye, she takes into consideration the story, sets, lighting, wardrobe and the character's backstory. This creative process, inclusive to the entire collaboration, is how she contributes to the story telling experience. For all her efforts, Dhyana has earned Makeup Designer and Key credits, and was the recipient of a "Best Special Effects Makeup" award in 2010. She was then invited into the IASTE Local 798 in 2012.

With her artistic insight and professional work ethic, Dhyana is confident she will bring a beneficial contribution to your creative endeavors, and become an integral part of your production team.

Here is what those she has worked with have had said:

" I just wanted to reach out and say thank so much for being on the SJ Couture shoot. I just finished a solid week of retouching the images ....... and by retouching I mean removing wrinkles from the dresses. The makeup was nearly flawless - you did a beautiful job and I cannot wait to work with you again. Wanted you to know that I am your biggest fan!".
- David Patino, Photographer

" Yo Dhyana! Thanks so much for the Amazing work on the makeup for 'Anniversary'. The actor's looked great!........And
you are a pleasure to have on set".
- Randy Slavin, Director

"Elizabeth- Please meet our new key hair and makeup artist, Dhyana Forte. She has some good experience in film,and knows her way around a cast and crew. I have seen her burn and tattoo work, which is perfect for our needs. I also believe she will be a great addition to our set.
- Richard Kathlean, Line Producer

"Greatly enjoyed working with you. You did an amazing job."

"Hi Dhyana, You are not going to believe this but your story is already running in the magazine! We just received the issue in the mail. It will probably be on the news stands this weekend or on Monday. (page 106)
