Channeling Grace:A Vintage Photo Shoot

Last week I was so excited do be involved in a photo shoot for my salon. A vintage style was required and I delivered. Here are some snapshots I took that day. (Apologies for the low-quality phone pics!) I really enjoyed it and can't wait for next time!

My model Amanda was lovely to work with and had the perfect hair for the Grace Kelly inspired look I gave her! Her hair was about shoulder length and I knew I wanted to give her a dramatic fringe (bang) wave. The highlights in her hair enhance the movement of her waves. Who knew she was a 1950s bombshell!?

Peek at the back--the lighting is terrible and a bit blurry!
I curled her hair using a 3/4" inch curling iron and curled her whole head in on-base curls. (see second photo) After that it's all about the products and the brush out! I added a little oil for some dramatic shine on the front wave-it picked up the light beautifully.

*When I do my styles, I prefer to work on freshly washed hair or second day hair, depending on the person's hair texture and oil production.
*Use a hairspray that isn't sticky-this will make a huge difference in the brush out!
