Myself and the fantastic makeup artist Ruth Fernandez spent 2 days with our client, Olympic medalist Summer Sanders, with her press for Schwinn bikes. We had a great time with her and her daughter Skye. She is definitely one of my favorite clients, “Do whatever you want” is always fun to hear!!”

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

After working with Marlee for an entire season of Celebrity Apprentice it finally came to the final 2 days of press after the winner was chosen. Unfortunately Marlee was not crowned the winner (second to John Rich) but she will always be a good friend and I can’t wait to work with her more in the future. Here are some shots from Celebrity Apprentice and also the press tour after the finale.

Usually for the finale all the Celebrities hair and makeup is done at the event space. This year Maria Kanellis hired me on her own to come to her hotel room so we could do a “special” look. Maria is a girl after my own heart. She LOVES BIG HAIR!!!

Here are a few photos from my first season of doing NBC’s TV show The Celebrity Apprentice. As you can see the hair/makeup area isn’t the most glamorous but we definitely make up for it by creating some beautiful looks for all the celebrities.
This is what we do when we're waiting for the celebrity's. PA's hair and makeup!!!!

Can you believe these 2 are in charge!!!
One thing I love about my job is that you never know what you may be doing one day to the next. I was contacted by photography duo Marcus & Indrani to do a shoot with Perez Hilton. This was a surprise in and of itself but when they told me the concept I was even MORE surprised. He would be photographed as Louis XIV and have naked male and female models surrounding him! I ended up styling 2 wigs together to create this look and then also did all the models as well. We shot at The Box, one of downtown New York’s hippest haunts.
The photograph is part of a larger celebrity series that is to be shown and then auctioned for charity at this years Art Basel in Miami.
