‘Yesterday Man’ ON Magazine, December 2014 Shop Issue

Published Editorials

Winter is upon us and nothing is more fitting than a cozy and warm feel as shown in this recent editorial.

Isaac Tullis, photographed by Sergio Garcia, evokes the idea of a simpler, relaxed and slightly rugged man. Styled by Jennifer Bingham, Isaac reserved a sense of structure and easy fashion.

Isaac’s hair was kept quite textured but minimal in movement.  A dusting of Osis Dust It Mattifying Texture Powder gave grip, texture, without the need of multiple products.

“Cold Sun”, HUF Magazine December 2014

Published Editorials

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:)

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Portfolio Update with David Earl

Uncategorized

It’s Thursday again already?!

Wow, how time passes.  To make it better, I share this awesome session with David Earl photographed by Sergio Garcia.  

The purpose of this photoshoot was to compile various looks and show David’s versatility. From fitness, to casual, to suiting,  he shows a different side of a well groomed man’s closet.

For the relaxed looks, I used a bit of Awapuhi Texturizing Sea Salt Spray by Paul Mitchell and roughly blow dried it with my fingers. I then dressed it with Bumble and Bumble Sumo Tech for a bedhead hold.

As the session progressed, I dressed the hair with a much neater  pompadour effect. I achieved this by using a paddle brush and smoothing all of the hair directed back. The Sumo Tech activated with the heat and created a nice finish so I just sealed in place with a mist of Paul Mitchell Extra Clean Hairspray.

Lastly, we wanted to portray a very crisp, debonair gentleman. To complete his well tailored suit look, I deep side parted the hair using his eyebrow as a guide to keep proportion. I used Kenra Grooming Pomade and used a fine toothed comb perfectly smooth it back. I topped it off with a fine mist of Paul Mitchell The Shine for a lacquer finish.

I hope you enjoyed it and that you have fun using these essential products as much as I do.
