This was the very first shoot I did with Luke Hayfield. Luke contacted me via Instagram regarding my previous work. After telling Luke I was looking to work with more photographers, he invited me to join him as the stylist on this shoot with the lovely Tara Flood.

Tara already had a style in mind for the shoot, a 1950s pinup look incorporating a victory roll. I was excited as this was a completely new look and style to add to my portfolio. To get this effect I used my Cloud Nine straighteners to curl her hair and hairspray to set the style. Tara also used clip-in hair extensions, which I curled in the exact same way before clipping them into her hair.

I really love the final outcome for this shoot. I did struggle a little with the victory roll as Tara’s natural hair was quite short, but Tara loved the look and her hair colour really defined the style. I’m looking forward to working with Luke again!
