Entertainment Journalist and American Hair & Makeup Artist Sophia Lenore

In July 2011 hairstylist and makeup artist to the stars, Sophia Lenore, decided to make Berlin, Germany, her third home to accommodate her celebrity and socialite clients. Until recently celebrity hair and makeup artist Sophia Lenore spent her time flying back and forth between her two homes in New York City and Miami, Florida. “Now I just need a place in California” Sophia stated in an interview with Miami Very Social Magazine. Sophia Lenore is married to retired tennis player turned pro athlete trainer, Philipp Halfmann, whose busy tennis touring schedule greatly influenced Sophia’s decision to relocate to Berlin, Germany. “Both my schedule and my husband’s schedule were getting so chaotic. I was traveling all over the place for photo shoots, films, television shows, runways shows you name it! Phil’s schedule was just as crazy because he was spending 6 months in America and 6 months in Europe touring and training athletes. So, I thought, why don’t I just start working more in Europe myself?” So after making the decision to move to Europe 3 months later Sophia was on a plane to Berlin with 15 suitcases. “I never travel light”. Sophia laughs.

Sophia Lenore’s arrival in Berlin, Germany, was abrupt and noticed by many! “As soon as I arrived in Berlin I got so busy!! Suddenly I had new agents, new clients, several new projects, a slew of new hair and makeup assistants, and a new title to add to my resume”. Sophia Lenore is the new School Director as well as the Director of Education at Yab Academy for hair and makeup.

However Sophia finds the balance and never shows signs of being overwhelmed.” I will never allow myself to become so busy that my clients in America and Europe, who have grown dependent and accustomed to having me available to them, can’t even get me on the phone”. “I am always taking new clients, and signing on for new projects. If I am available and in town you can book me, there is no ego here”.
