Fall is my favorite time of the year. The colors. The smells. The celebrations. The clothes are finer and people tend to dress up a bit more.
In our recently published editorial in HUF Magazine, Morgan Chidsey photographs Tony Trahan in a serene and gentlemanly estate setting. The tones and feel of this session give the impression of a young monsieur caught enjoying his manor.
Hints of tweed, denim, velvet, plaid, and houndstooth expertly arranged by Tess Wilcox give a depth and richness to the story.
A debonair gentleman needs a suave hairstyle and groomed skin. I achieved the look by using this set of men’s grooming products.
On damp hair, I distributed a few pumps of Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray and AG Beach Bomb to encourage texture and a natural wave to the hair. With the blowdryer set on high, I used the air control nozzle with a clean cotton sock over it to direct diffused air and give the hair a windblown look.
Since we photographed Tony outside, I used a mist of Privé Finishing Texture Spray in the hair for manageable hold. I love this line because it is apothecary based and has buildable qualities.
For the photos with a smooth and straight pomp, I finger-raked a bit of Privé Créme Coiffante through the hair. This lightweight grooming cream adds shine, body, and texture without weighing the hair down. I finsihed the look with a mist of Aquage Beyond Shine for a bit more gloss.
Great skin on a man is a definite must. I cleansed Tony’s skin with Jack Black Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser. I love this multipurpose cleanser because it can also be left in the skin for 20 minutes and doubles as a great purifying face masque.
The face was then moisturized with Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer. This product is great for all skin types and has SPF 20 which is perfect for outdoor activities.
Nails, cuticles, and lips require attention as well. For this I used, Smith’s Rosebud Salve. Non greasy and right to the point. I love it!
I hope you enjoy this set! Stay warm and cozy:)
