Daphne Martin

Hairstylist Daphne Martin tidies up June Thorburn’s hair whilst director Michael Truman goes over the next scene on the set of Touch and Go (1955)

Behind the scenes roles such as hair, make-up and costume were largely dominated by men. Daphne Martin was one of a small number of female hairstylists employed at Ealing Studios throughout the 1940s and 50s and worked on many large productions such as The Lavender Hill Mob (1951), Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) and The Ladykillers (1955). Her career in film and television spanned over five decades, although in many of these productions she was uncredited for her work.
