Gunnar Deatherage is a man of many talents; Designer, Stylists, Creative Director. I was excited when he contacted me regarding hair for his upcoming fashion spread for The Voice Tribune. I was very excited as he said curly hair and the shoot would focus on a generation of wealthy, fashionable women in a huge home.
I was excited again to have the opportunity to work with make up artist, Bethany Hood and Photographer, Clay Cook would be photographing the collection. Models would be book from Heyman Talent Agency.
I think one of the best parts of this photoshoot was is the home which served as the backdrop to this collection. The Conrad Caldwell Historical Mansion with its haunting energy was rich in beauty and history with a haunting vibe to the past. I was mesmerized by the house and intrigued by it size, high ceilings and original decor.
Bethany and I did hair and make up to prep the models at Gunnar's studio. For hair I prepped the models with Redken's Guts 10 for subtle volume and then I sprayed Iron Shape 11 on sections of the hair and used various curling irons. I used the new Sam Villa Curling iron on all models and on the youngest model I used the Kiss 5/8 curling wand to set the hair.
Clay Cook and his team did scouted various parts of the house to be used as backdrops to tell a story for the collection. Special lighting and test shoots were done prior to photographing the models. Special care was used when working with the actual antiques in the home which we were not allowed to move.
The entire shoot last 10 hours and was published in the Fall 2017 Fashion Issue of the Voice Tribune.
The collection was a featured fashion editorial in The Voice Tribune Fall Fashion Issue 2017.
