Solenn Heussaff, 24-year-old sister of Erwan Heussaff, is a half-Filipina, half-French model, painter, fashion designer and make-up artist. She is one of the castaways ofPhilippines Celebrity edition who will be fighting for the ownership of the right to be called the first celebrity sole survivor in the Island of Thailand.
Solenn's first appearance on TV was when she was 15 as the girl-woman in the Pop Cola TV commercial. Since then, she has traveled to Thailand, China, Malaysia and Singapore as the lead girl in Ponds, Nescafe, Coffeemate, Creamsilk, Nivea and Hazeline TV Commercials.
There is definitely a lot more to Solenn Heusaff than just a pretty face. She has been exposed to the arts since the age of three. Almost everyone on her father's side are painters, while on her mother's side, practically all are sculptors. Her father who is a Marine is named Louis Paul Heussaff, while her mother is Cynthia Adea.
On her part, specifically this year, she has taken her love of art and applied it to another medium: make-up. Just this morning, September 14, she did make-up/s formagazine.
Solenn has downshifted her modeling and decided to focus on more artistic endeavors.
Basically, in a week, she wears different hats. She is a designer for the homegrown knit wear labelTan Gan twice a week. At least until the 12th grade, Solenn was essentially a Manila girl studying in Eurocampus, a French-German school now renamed the European International School of Manila. After spending three years in Paris studying fashion design, she returned to Manila in 2005, then interned with said prominent designer Lulu Tan Gan.
She also instructs/does make-up projects for Make Up For Ever Paris. In 2008, Solenn took a six-month course at the Fleurimont School in Paris, where she took up basic beauty and fashion make up. After finishing, she pursued further studies at the Make Up For Ever Academy, informally known as the Harvard of make up in the industry. Solenn also took up Prosthetics at the same academy. She hopes to raise the bar in make up for the Philippines: to help Filipinas/Filipinos who are passionate about make up become global players.
