I personally love this time of year because the weather is on the verge of changing. There are cooler mornings and warmer days. It’s time to wear your favorite sweater for the last chance in a while.
With it comes along a laissez-faire attitude towards beauty as well. Undone and textured hair is perfect for spring. Tousled locks go perfectly with a statement color that matches your favorite bloom.
Teaming up with romantic photographer Morgan Chidsey and wardrobe stylist Britta Newton proved to be fun, easy, and fresh. We were able to work on a set with four models courtesy of The Dragonfly Agency and The Kim Dawson Agency. Chloe, Delaney, Christina, and Kalli all portrayed an cool and chic mood.
I used the same hair products throughout the series and challenged myself to see what it could do. I used a cocktail of Privé Vanishing Oil, Weightless Amplifier, and Finishing Texture Spray to add shine, heat protection, add bounce, and pliability.
I added the products to Kalli’s hair and roughly blowdried until dry. With a 1″ iron, I took vertical sections and alternated the curl making sure to not leave the hair for longer than 5 seconds. After releasing from the tongs, I immediately raked the curls with my fingers and tugged on each curl. I wanted texture not curl.
On Christina, I decided to take the same approach as I did on Kalli. I parted the hair with a weighty center part and decided to not alternate the direction of the waves for a more elongated and concise formation.
I followed the same pattern and product usage on Delaney to further test the fact that the same products and hair tools can yield slight variations. For Delaney, I opted to use a 1 1/2″ barrel iron which created a slight bend in the hair. Some of her outfit changes had high collars, so I wrapped the hair into a perfectly imperfect French roll.
I was amazed that using the same cocktail of products yielded such a different effect on Chloe. Her hair is very straight and is of medium texture. I decided to skip the curling iron and let her texture shine through.
I hope that you enjoy the rest of the film. I loved how each model shines through and there is an even composition in colors and textures. The hairstyles and minimal makeup allow for each model to have subtle differences and stand alone as well as in a group.
