A blog chronicling the adventures of a Chicago-based hairstylist and makeup artist!

Inspiration Shoot, Chicago.

      Back in May I styled hair for a bridal inspiration shoot with the, respectively, wonderful Jessica Bennett Photography, Iza Mieszczanska (model) and Dena Miller (make up artist).  Jessica styled the shoot under the inspiration of "an English garden wedding."  We shot in both Lincoln Park, which runs along Lake Michigan just north of downtown Chicago and stunning Humboldt Park, which is littered with European inspired architecture.
      I love purposefully, undone textures so I layered sea salt spray and dry shampoo to obtain a gritty texture prior to styling the hair.  For the Lincoln Park shoot I created a whimsical, curly updo and topped it off with a hair piece from Chicago's Pish Poshes.  Iza's first dress was from H&M.  She also wore an amazing second dress by local designer Elizabeth Lara.  For the Humboldt Park portion of the shoot I created a custom, tangled braid for Iza in order to show off her dramatic eyeliner and lipstick.  Once again we used hair pieces from Pish Poshes and she wore a short, ruffled dress by designer Amanda Archer.
