I be-weave...

This weekend I got to have some fun playing dress up for Studio 110 Salon.  Normally, I'm used to being on the other side of the camera.  After I do makeup, I generally am responsible for managing shine, fixing stray hairs, and making sure everything looks perfect.  So this was a treat for me!

Hairstylist JP gave me my DREAM HAIR.  Big, beautiful, and un-be-weave-able.  I have never worn fake hair before, and I'm now questioning why.  I am OBSESSED.  I never want to take them out.  Now, they are clip-in extensions so I can kind of pick and choose how much I want and when I want it - which is all of them and always.
I was SOOO excited just to have my hair done and get to wear cool clothes.  Then JP told me that the inspiration for the first look was a Ginger from Casino and Beyonce a la' the "Why Don't You Love Me?" video.  I seriously almost cried.  2 of my favorite things on the planet.  Ginger (pre-cocaine addiction) is my fave style icon.
I really loved being able to do my own makeup.  (I'm kind of a control freak when it comes to my makeup anyways).  Oh, yes that is black gel eyeliner on my lips.  LOOK AT THAT WEAVE!
So it was a little awkward trying to be natural in front of the camera.  I have a tendency to look like I smell dookie when I try and look serious.  I tried to channel my inner ANTM and "smeyes" my way through it.  Here are some of the un-edited photos. I can't wait to see the finished ones!
