Crazy Stuff I Love to do!

Crazy Stuff I Love to do!

These are some of my creations for fashion shows/Photo shoots…what do you think?


Vineyard Venus

Recently I was invited to a toga party, but I didn’t have time to make the toga. What s a girl to do…HER HAIR! Who needs to spend money on a last minute costume when your hair can do the job for you. To create this look I marcel curled the top half of my head (pinning each curl up after to cool into that shape) and left the lower half straight. After brushing the hair at the front of my face straight I randomly teased/pinned these curls into a messy bun on the back top half of my head. You can add the vine leaves like I did for effect or you can use your imagination for differing appearances.Vineyard Venus DSC01440 DSC01441

Day After-> Pin Curls

Hot Mess BunAs you can see, I slept really hard that night, but this created some amazing texture to work with the next day! After pulling my hair into a high pony tail, I back combed my curls with a boar bristle brush spraying with a light hold hairspray as I teased. Using light hairspray allows some of the curl to stay curly, as well as adding a structure to the tease that you can pin into a shape. I kept my structure loose and big, so that it would cover the entire back of my head. However you can use this same technique of day after pin curls to create messy styles with lots of volume (I love doing a messy french twist with this spray and back comb technique). Pin your hair to keep the style stable all day. I finished with Matrix Hard Lock hair spray from the Design pulse line for  a stronger hold. This perfect hot mess style got me lots of compliments throughout the day and into the night, so give it a try!



Curl Challenge Try2

I decided to go about getting curls the old fashion way! PIN CURLS!! Yes friends I slept the WHOLE night with my hair in pin curls. I curled them using a flatiron then sprayed them with Vavoom finishing spray and pinned them so they would stay. I slept with a bandana around my head and you can see the results how perfect the curls are! I will see how long I can make these curls last…stay tuned!

“Curl Challenge”

After I curled my hair today and I wanted to save it for tomorrow. So by wearing it in a french braided double-strand rope bun. I and hoping to conserve the curl! lets see what I can do!

“Revamping Vintage”

I used a larger spaced crimping iron to add slight texture to the hair not leaving specific impression patterns. I used Matrix Total Results Sleek Iron Guard for protection, and Matrix Hard Lock hairspray for control. Pin hair into figure eights on top and to one side of the head.

Preview: “Virtually Vintage”


So hopefully this will not be the first and only time your seeing this image…I am going to try to submit it and see what happens. Who’s with me on this? Please leave your opinions and comments….lets just say they two views don’t do the “doo” justice ;-). I handmade this headpiece out of silver beads, chiffon, and a sholderpad.

Updating an old dress by adding embellishments is the way to look great and save lots of cash! All it takes is a little imagination. The hair style is “wand waved” in the crown section with tight Marcell curls pinned up to the side. I wanted her to resemble the model from Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel”. So go try updating an old look with new additions yourself.

Texture Tessellation

I loved this style…and since It has finally been sent off for review for the magazine American Stylist I can now show it to the world! This was all the model’s natural hair that has been crimped in specific pieces and pinned into curls all over the back of the head. I used Vavoom Finishing Hair Spray for a stronger hold and shine!

Jury Duty “Do”

Pull the top horseshoe section of your hair (crown) into a high bun and pin in place. Then brush all your hair over to right above an ear(making sure its smooth). Braid this hair, then twist it back around the bun and pin. Fray and spray the ends of the braid with Matrix design pulse so you can cover any part lines. Leaving you a clean look in the back but a funky twist with the frayed pieces in the front. I loved wearing this to Jury duty today ….because I didn’t have to explain my occupation 🙂
