Monae Artistry

Archive for the ‘Hair Styling’ Category

This has been a long eventful week. I have been blessed to be booked every day. This past Tuesday, I styled hair for the Jodi Arnold for The Limited show. Ms. Arnold has designed looks to accentuate every woman. Her looks, exclusively for The Limited, takes women from boardroom to happy hour. To launch the line The Limited invited many customers to view the exclusive in store runway show. Guests were served wine and given other exclusive treats.
My role in the show as key hairstylist, was to give each of the “real women” models a look to accentuate their individual beauty and hair that softly bounced down the runway.

Their are quite a few parts of my career that I love. My favorite part has to be working on photoshoots. I love it when professional get together to reach one common goal… a great editorial. This editorial, Full Bloom, is featured in Ladybrille Magazine (April 2010).

As a hair and makeup artist, most of my work features my artistry in both fields. But from time to time I contribute only hair or makeup. In this shoot I contributed hair styling.

Hair by Monae

In order to make the hair flow with the Full Bloom designs of Prajje Couture, I needed to add three things; fullness, tone, and texture.   To achieve this fullness and volume,  I added hair extensions. I decided to make the extensions medium brown to add a natural look to the model’s hair. Hair, just like the designs in the Full Bloom collection, needs a slight variation in tone to appear as natural as possible. The hair styling consisted of spiral curls made with a small curling iron. Not only did the curls produced with the small curling iron make the hair appear thicker it also added texture. Texture is is one of the small miracles of nature… and necessities of hair styling.
