Video Tutorial - Holiday Party Hair

December 20, 2011
Today I am excited to reveal my very first video tutorial!!  
For my first tutorial I wanted to do something really fun, something you can wear to your upcoming Christmas and New Years parties.  So I decided to go with a simple updo with a little vintage flare.  Perfect for Christmas time!

Merry Christmas! 

Contest Winner - Lauren

Ciara Richardson and I had a contest a few months ago, and Lauren was the lucky winner!  She decided to use her free hair/make-up and photo session for some bridal pictures.  They turned out beautiful!

1960's Housewife

December 12, 2011
One of my best friends from high school, Landon Drean, happens to be a phenomenal photographer.  A few weeks ago he asked me if I would do hair and make-up for his fashion photography final, and of course I said yes!  Working with Landon is so fun, not to mention his awesome photography skills!  
Since we had a lot of people on board - Landon, me, 2 models, a wardrobe stylist and an assistant, we decided to tackle it all in one day rather then trying to find multiple days when we were all available.  
Miraculously we pulled it off!  It only took 12 hours, 2 pizzas and a lot of good music. 
Be sure to check out Landon Drean Photography and the wardrobe stylist's blog Wearing It On My Sleeves.  
Thanks to Sarah McCammon for the behind the scenes shots.

Bridal Hairstyling Workshop

I am so excited to announce my Spring 2012 bridal hairstyling workshop!   All of you hair stylists out there who want to boost your business in the bridal world, learn more about styling for photographs or just want to feel more comfortable with updos, come join the party!

If there are two things that have helped me the absolute most in my hairstyling career, they are

1- Being comfortable with and willing to do bridal work
2- Having images of my work online

With this workshop you will get both! 

If you aren't familiar with my work, here are some of my favorites-

Hope to see you there!

Snow White

December 8, 2011
Today I am excited to reveal the second princess in the Princess Project series -

Snow White

For Snow White we went with a high fashion look, almost a little edgy.  Really bold and dramatic hair and make-up, a stark contrast in colors, with a hint of softness at the same time.
