Kern Represents is a creative agency based in Los Angeles and San Francisco.  We represent professional Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists, Wardrobe & Prop Stylists, and Art Directors. 

Our Roster

We take great pride in surrounding ourselves with the most professional creative individuals in our industry.  It is in this spirit that we've built this agency and partnered with a select group of amazing artists & stylists. These seasoned professionals are true masters of their crafts.

Our Agency

Kern Represents is built up around the artists we've partnered with.  Since 2003, we've played many roles in this industry and have worked as both freelancers and on the agency side of this business.  We understand the give and take from both parties - we do know that the artist and representative relationship doesn't work well when it's one sided or is taken for granted from either party.  Collaborating together as artist and agency helps to strengthen our relationships with clients and most of all for our artists to continue to evolve as master's of their crafts.
