It has been another great week. Thanks to Dave, Brandon, Lindsay and Kate for venturing out to Beauty (SALON) for the first time. Im excited about this amazing 8 megapixel camera on my new iPhone…now I can document all (or at least the ones who let me!) of my clients lovely locks before they leave my chair and share them with everyone here on my blog. Kate came in last night for highlights and a cut. Thanks Kate, have fun at your holiday party tonight!

Tuesday, December 6, 2011: About a week and a half ago an old friend and brave soul, Joe, was enlisted to be my model for my first full head of dreads! As expected his full head took about 5 hours from start to finish using the Knotty Boy method of backcombing and twisting with the use of brown Knotty Boy wax. Check out the before, during and after photos below and check back for updates on the progression on his locks as they tighten and grow over the next few months!
Sunday, December 4, 2011: I’d just like to take a minute to thank Nick Irwin, TIGI Creative Director London and the entire TIGI team that helped make todays show possible! I would also like to extend a thanks to Jeremy Tomkinson, owner of Beauty (SALON) and my new boss, for treating his entire staff of stylists (myself included!) to the show today held at Tre Monti Ristorante in Troy, MI
It was a pleasure learning about how Nick got started in the business and worked his way to his current position at TIGI. I especially loved hearing about his editorial and fashion show work, or session work work as it is know as in the industry. It is an aspect that is of high interest to me but much harder to find out about how to get your foot in the door. Hearing Nick speak on his experiences with session work has ignited my motivation to embrace a DIY attitude when it comes to utilizing my photography background and plan for photo shoots of my own. Over the next month I will be visualizing and planning for these photo shoots. I am making it a person goal to cut, color, style and shoot at least one model per month to be added to my portfolio and featured on my website. If you would be interested in being a model please contact me.
Below you will find photos of the 3 models Nick Irwin presented at his show.
His first model was inspired by a modern twist on a 60′s look. His cut and style took a classic graduated look and updated it with a slightly disconnected texturized coif and choppy fringe. Tousled tresses give this short style a fun, flirty attitude. [divider]
For Nick’s second look, he was inspired by the music and women of the ”rave” culture. Although he wanted a pulled back, sleek look from the front to draw more focus to the dress on the runway, he also wanted a ponytail style that was reminicent of a girl that had been “sweating on the dance floor for six hours.” Complete with a braid on each side and messy, elastic bound double pony in the back, this dance floor ‘do is easy to recreate for you next night out![divider]
Nick’s third and final look was a fantasy, high-fashion look created by bundles of synthetic hair backcombed into a wonderfully texturized form. Not your everyday look but my favorite of Nick’s by far! This model in particular has inspired me to pull out my sketchbook and brainstorm my own fantasy, editorial looks.
Hope you all enjoyed a little VIP sneak peak into the show today!
