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!
