One of the highlights of my whirlwind trip was styling hair for a shoot with 4 lovely women for the Mayapple Boutique lookbook and an editorial spread in the Fayetteville Free Weekly…….I had the pleasure of working beside my salon business partner, the talented Melissa Arens, hair and wardrobe stylist, makeup artist, and fellow mother of daughters who happens to be a longtime favorite photoshoot collaborator of mine:)
For this shoot, I employed my little Mini Crimper
and worked it hard. I crimped Nico’s pre-flatironed hair, piece by piece from root to ends leaving her bangs un-crimped.
On Cloey, I worked through her pre-flatironed hair in small random sections on the surface, lightly spraying the pieces and then crimping them here and there to create geometrics and angles. It looked so cool!! I love crimping so, so hard.
After crimping Sarah’s hair, I did the Viking Hair for the Modern Lady hairstyle which turned out perfectly cool.
Then we braced ourselves and our hair for the insane monsoon of rain that was coming down and made our way to a muddy bike tunnel which underpasses 6th street and connects a fantastic bike trail that runs the entire length of Fayetteville, AR.
Next up? A quick change, easy beehives, dramatic makeup and a blue wall.
What could be better? What a great day.
I had so much fun editing these photos with Picmonkey, btw. See the new Picmonkey sidebar ad to your right? It is there because I could not run HTHG without Picmonkey photo-editing…. It is a super affordable program for monkeys like me who don’t have the time to mess with photoshop. They make it simple and fun to edit and collage, and I am proud to be partnering with them. Check em out!
And FYI, be on the lookout for the new Mayapple Boutique online……Coming soon, stocked with Nikki Jacoby jewelry, hand picked vintage and American made apparel. xoxoxo, HTHG
