I'm always excited to work with new creative teams and opportunities always present themselves. I was asked by one of the models, Rebecca Bien whom I had previously book for a hair color collection. She ask if I was interested and if I would be available to do her hair for a photoshoot
. She had booked Make up artist, Matt Goodlett whom I've worked with on several occasions and photographer, Ronnie Louis. She said the concept was to include "Big" hair and "Glitter" and somewhat disco theme... of course I said yes!!
I had never worked with Ronnie before so I was excited and I arrived at Joe Goodwin's photography studio were our collection would be photographed. I had brought some jewels, glitter, hair pads and hair extensions and a wig in my kit. Matt and I were inspired by the concept and worked together to create two looks.
for the first looks we wanted a long flowing look. I used a front lace wig that I lightly heat styled with a slight bend in the ends. I wanted to focus on the part so I took Redken Hardward Gel 16 and loose green glitter and mixed thoroughly. Using a color brush I applied the glitter in the center of the part and while hold the brush flat spread the color outwards. While Matt did Rebecca's make up The glitter gel had adequate time to dry and I finished the look with Control Addict 28.
Make up looked created by Matt included matching green lip color, defined brows and eyes and soft highlighter. Lastly a diffused dollar sign on the apple of her cheek. Nails were finished with a high gloss coat of black polish.
We turned up the tunes and Rebecca posed for the camera.
For the second look. I brushed Rebecca's hair upwards into a high pony and secured with elastics. I used Redken's Fashion Works 12 working spray and my Tearsheet finishing brush to create a smooth finish. I then used an oversize hair pad by Kris Sorbie I bobbi pins to her scalp. The I tookcustom hair extensions colored with City Beats Coral and Pink and brown and blonde that I crimped with the Sam Villa Texture iron converged them together and strateigically wrapped them over the hair pad.
For make up, Matt artfully placed body jewels and shimmer and highlighter over Rebecca's body. He turned it up a notch with a smoky eye and deep pink lip hue. Lastly a diffused dollar sign on the apple of her cheek.
This collection was exclusively released by Bangstyle. We gave big hair, glitter and shimmer.
