Shoot Date: 4th November 2016

Today was a team up shoot with the amazing Sian Ashleigh Photography, talented Sam Plant MUA and stunning Rachel Perera. The shoot was for these cute new sets from Colieco Lingerie. I love this brand and have collected a few sets for myself now.

We started with the Lingerie sets. For these shots I wanted to add some body to Rachel’s hair and I achieved this by using my Cloud Nine hair straighteners to add curls to the hair, while using some Schwarzkopf Got2B Powderful Volumising Powder at the roots to create a natural looking lift.

Next we moved on to the beauty shots, to showcase Sam Plant’s unbelievable make up skills. For these shots we wanted a completely different hairstyle which would allow the maximum canvas for Sam to work on. I created a middle parting all the way down the middle middle of the head from front to back. I created two from section either side of the parting and gripped them flat to the scalp and fixed them in place with four grips either side for symmetry. I then finished this area with Schwarzkopf Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray. The rest of the curls were backcombed and teased to create a completely different texture. While not an everyday style, I loved creating something different and the resulting photos.

For the final shots I got to style Sam using my Babyliss Wave Envy Hair Styler. Her candy floss coloured hair looked amazing and I absolutely loved styling it in these beautiful waves. Sam has an undercut, but her hair was so thick you wouldn’t know it from these shots! I absolutely loved how the images came out. Unfortunately I had to leave as soon as I styled Sam’s hair to get back to college. They had been nice enough to let me have the morning for this shoot but I was expected back after lunch.

Such a long day, but so worth it. I hope to work with Sam again in the future! She was so talented and friendly!
