Makeup and Hair Meet on the Runway

Being a Wisconsin makeup artist and hair stylist I spend the majority of my time in the state, but I recently returned from Illinois after my first hair show of 2010. Several times a year I get to travel all over the Midwest and sometime beyond for these wonderful events.

This year, like all others, was a full house of eager stylist and aestheticians looking to learn and inspire their creativity with some of the top global educators in the U.S. They represent some of the top lines in the beauty industry like Redken, Pureology, Surface, Keune, and Mirabella to name a few.

Although I don't get to see much of the shows since I'm in the model room applying makeup for 50 or more models, I always enjoy seeing what was all captured on camera. Thanks Elvisa, who was one of the models, for posting so many great photos!

Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend!

When Artists Meet Artists

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for not being disiplined enough to get new blogs out as much as I'd like.
Instead of sharing pictures with you this time I wanted to share a video! This is from a recent photoshoot I was on with a whole new collaboration of artists.

The team consisted of photographer, David, at, hairstylist, Scott Burns from, wardrobe stylist, Mark Plowman, and again some amazing jewelry from Betty Holland,

Assisting us with lots of other things (video, photo assisting, ordering food and much more) was Trevor and Brett...and to our wonderful models Naomi and Lauren it was a great success. I look forward to many more!

Take a peak...turn up the volume...and let me know what you think!
