verb conjugation in this dictée

Hello - I cant work out why in the penultimate response the reason why the verbs conjugated like this when the subject pronoun is nous  "qui nous maquillera et nous coiffera pour le soir."

I would have thought it was nous maquillerons et nous coifferons

Can you explain?

This question relates to:
French dictation exercise "Une Saint Valentin entre copines (B1)"

Hi Marc,

The audio says: 

"...On retrouvera ma cousine Valérie qui nous coiffera et nous maquillera pour le soir..."

Nous is a direct object pronoun here, and not the subject pronoun of coiffera or maquillera, it is Valérie which is third person singular...

Hope this helps!
