The Romantic Collection: FLEUR DE LIS Model: Kelsey A with Numa Models Makeup by Candice Johnson Hair by Katie Webster Styling by Alexa Kellee
The Fleur De Lis final pics are here! check them out in the portfolio section. They are lovely, the brief was romantic, and I think we nailed that, so pretty!
Speaking of braids (see post below) here is a waterfall braid I did for one of Natalie's bridesmaids a few weeks ago, so pretty for the outdoor wedding
behind the scenes... Photo assistant, Andrew Designers- Elik & Afsi Model Eireann D and me and Ryan the photographer is taking the photo, so no pic of him
I love when the final images from a shoot are ready! I put the lastest ones from the shoot I did a few weeks back in the 'portfolio' section - check them out! Also I LOVE when the photographer gets a great shot of the hair... Ryan (the photographer Dieselseven photography) sent this extra image below which shows of the chunky braid I did in Eireanns hair. Braids still seem to be hot right now, and personally I'm a huge fan and I hope they stick around! xK
Yesterday, I was on a shoot with the design duo Elik & Afsi. We shot their first collection, part if it, they will be showing at Vancouver Fashion week, coming up very soon. We did 6 different looks, on one model, at two different locations, here in Vancouver. And, we were even lucky enough to have great weather! The collection is fun, young, totally wearable and even a little preppy, made me think garden cocktail party in the Hamptons. So, once again, prepping the hair properly was key here, and using the right products to allow the hair to transition into different styles. Some of the changes were quick, so I only got a snapshot of 3 of the looks, I'll post the final images, as soon as I'm allowed! x
Yesterday I spent the afternoon, doing a shoot with a great team. The model, Kelsey had a gorgeous head of hair for me to work with which I love. The theme was romantic, and we accessorized with fresh flowers, so I got to put my floristry skills to work (note; I don't have florist skills!) We did 5 different looks, so the key to making this work, was all in the prep. What I mean by this is making sure the products I used complimented and worked with each other, and didn't react in a way that made the hair difficult to work with/greasy. This is a step many hairstylists neglect, and it's possibly the most crucial to having a style last all night/ be versatile to change. I only use Redken Products, and I like to add some texture to the hair to start to get a little 'grit' and then ALWAYS use a heat protector with a curling iron and a working spray throughout the changes. Never a laquer unless that's the final look and it needs to stay put! for some more pics go to my facebook page ; Katie Webster Hair, and look in the behind the scenes album. Hold tight for the final images.
