I have some pretty amazing friends in the beauty industry. My friend and make up artist, Bethany Hood asked if I was interested in a fashion and beauty photoshoot with photographer, Chelsea Marrin. I course I say yes I had not had the chance to work with Chelsea and I was excited when they sent me the vision board.
They wanted lots of texture and volume, warm hair tones that contrasted with dark hair color and heavy fringes.
Wardrobe would be original designs made by Gunnar Deatherage. I quickly pulled from my arsenal of hair pieces and wigs to create several looks. I precut a couple bobs with strong fringes and set a couple with either a texture iron or curling iron. I colored a couple hair pieces as well.
The photoshoot was set early on a gorgeous sunny day at Clay Cook's studio. Lots of snack were present and random tunes played in the background as Bethany and I readied both models. Initial fittings were done on the models before hand and hair and make up were combined to compliment each look. Sadie Ann Miller and Mei Li Zheng were the lovely models booked.
For this look on model Sadie, I used a custom wig colored with a soft peach highlights mixed with dark tones of which I secured to her head. I then used really small hair pads I place on her top sides and lightly backcombed the hair before covering the pads entirely and secure with hair pins. I strategically placed random section of hair across her forehead and highly teased the ends before spray Redken's Quick Dry 18.
Make up consisted of a green lip and soft cat eye with enhanced gold eyeshadow. Brows were heavily defined with soft contour on the cheeks.
This look required a custom wig that I Cut a strong fringe before styling each section with the Sam Villa texture iron. Afterwards hair was teased at the root and shaped into volume with Fashion Works 12 and lots of Control Addict 28.
Bethany turned up the depth with a darker lip color to compliment Gunnar's wardrobe.
A similar technique was done on Sadie's hair
The following looks on both models contained custom wigs colored with various Redken copper and reds hues. Heat styled with a curling iron and Iron Shape 11.
