What I have been up to...

Since I haven't had time to update lately I am just going to throw a bunch of things into one post. :)

I don't have any pictures yet but I was really excited to style hair for the Oscar De La Renta Ready To Wear 2012 show at Casino Club a few weeks back.  Once I get some photos I will definitely be featuring them!

These are from a shoot I did hair and makeup for last Tuesday with photography by Errol Dunlap and wardrobe provided by the fabulous designer, Christina Yi.

Four ads (Hard Rock Cafe, Roof at the Wit, Studio Paris and Tavern on Rush) that I did hair for can be found in the new issue of CS Magazine, on newstands now.

 I styled all of the hair for the Bridal Sunset event at Hotel 71.  It was beautiful and such a blast!

  I got the chance to do makeup and style hair for the fabulous Karla.

As well as do makeup for Fashion Columbia 2012 directed by the amazing Nena Ivon

And on top of all of that, President Obama was five floors below me at the hotel I was doing a wedding at on Saturday!  It was such a weird/amazing feeling knowing that I was in the same building as the President and that there was a POSSIBILITY I could see him.  I didn't though.  :-/  Regardless, it's been a wonderful six weeks!  Coming up I have many more weddings, I have some amazing shoots happening and I fly to LA in a few weeks to train for Wella!  Pretty exciting!

Before and After: Elica and Tina.

 Elica's curls were in need of a boost.  We only trimmed her length but we loosened up her curls so they had freedom to bounce!
Tina has very long, beautiful hair but the ends were dry and the layers were heavy.  We trimmed an inch off, reworked her layering and, voila, shiny beautiful hair!  You can really tell in this before and after because this cut was done on her hair dry.  The difference in her hair is not product or styling tools, it's simply cutting!

Photoshoot: Hair and Makeup for Kathleen House.

When I was in Florida a couple of months ago I had the opportunity to do a shoot with the fabulous Shauna Hundeby of East Coast Photography.  Kathleen was such a trooper as we had her change looks multiple times.  These are my favorite shots from the day!
