Check out some of the behind the scenes work from an upcoming photo shoot I did with photographer Audrey Stimpson. Her concept was screen captures from a Skype conversation between two friends, one in Asia and one in the US. After seeing each other’s style in the first conversation they have taken inspiration from each other and in the next conversation they have used each others looks on themselves. It’s a definite commentary on the fact that due to the power of the internet different cultures are able to now be inspired by each other.

What a BUSY day!!! I was up at the crack of dawn to work with Clay Aiken for the Sunday morning edition of The Today Show. After that was the finale of Celebrity Apprentice. I styled Debbie Gibson, Dayana Mendoza, and Clay Aiken for the show.

The fab Debbie Gibson
Clay’s NEW look
I just spent almost an entire week with Mr. Clay Aiken doing press for the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice finale. He did everything from “Good Day NY’ to “The Today Show” to “Wendy Williams Show”. It was actually a lot of fun and I was beyond excited to completely change his well known “spiky hair” look and trade it in for a more mature and many said “sexier” look 🙂
Ivanka Trump and Crystal Light sponsored a party last night and two of my clients were there. I finished styling Debbie for the party after all her press appearances and then headed over to Dayana Mendozo who is also on Celebrity Apprentice, as well as being Miss Universe 2009.
For Debbie I made her hair even straighter with the FHI Heat 1″ flat iron and Phytologie’s Phytolaque Soie hair spray. This is a great product to spray on the hair before flat ironing. It keeps the hair nice and soft and adds a great shine and hold.
Dayana on the other hand I curled with FHI’s 1″ curling iron and then used pin curl clips to set it. I also used the Phytolaque Soie on Dayana as well. After her hair cooled down I brushed it out and then pulled it all to one side so that the beautiful dress was able to be seen.
WHEWWW!!! What a busy 2 days! I’ve been working with Debbie Gibson for the past two days in what can only be described as a whirlwind of press. Debbie was unfortunately fired from CA on Sunday and now had to make the rounds to all the appropriate outlets. On day one I went with soft and wavy for The Today Show, Wendy Williams Show, and VH1. On the second day I did pin straight which is really my favorite look on Debbie. What do YOU think?
I love my job!! Getting ready for The Wendy Williams Show

I know it’s creepy to take photos of strangers on the street but I couldn’t help it!!! Do you know how many extension clients I could do with this?!?!?!?!?
To all my Brazilian Blowout clients that don’t understand why I no longer perform the service I think the adage that a picture says a thousand words is perfect here. This is how the service is now meant to be done. Not going to happen! Sorry.
