High School Senior Portraits with a twist!

Uncategorized

As a hair and make up artist,  I am called to be on set to make people photograph-ready.

This week was my first time being on set for high school senior portraits. I must say it was totally fun!

Lily, photographed by Nicolette Mollet, graduates this year and is a state champion in track and power lifting. She wanted to show both her athletic side and feminine side.

She looks awesome! Don’t you think?

“High Contrast” Living Magazine May 2014

Uncategorized

This editorial showcases the beautiful fashion trend in monochromatic black and white and how to wear it. Follow my journey on how I created this look.

The look was inspired by the “mop top” trend seen on Spring/Summer 2014 runways such as Marc Jacobs and Chanel.  The look is distressed, textural and chic all in one.

I used a human hair wig in shade 613 which I them hand colored to achieve an icy Nordic blond.  I used Paul Mitchell UTP and UTA with 10 volume developer.

I then cut the triangular bob shape with clippers and a razor.
