How to style Annabelle's Wigs

As a make up artist and hair stylist I often have to create elaborate hair styles for people who don't have either long enough hair or thick enough hair - this is where a hair piece can add much needed hair and shine to create a look special enough for brides to wear on their special day.

I received a phone call from a bride recently who was getting married the following week and asked me to create a few hair styles using Annabelle's Wigs Hair pieces from the Lino range.
Here are the results;

Using the High Pony (Poppy) I started by setting it in heated curlers and then plaited and weaved the top of the pony to create some interest into the piece.

 I finished by applying a few small rose buds into the piece to match the brides bouquet.
 Next, using another High Pony (Poppy) - I wrapped the entire length of the hair piece around the existing clip to create a large bun that could be placed anywhere on the brides head (top bun, low bun or even side bun)
 I also created two other hair styles - both using the Artemis Bun - the first one I put some padding inside to give the illusion that it is wider (second bun to the right)
The last style I created (first on the right) I used two Artemis Buns and set them both in heated curlers.  Once set I lightly teased out the curls and secured both buns together before placing the rose buds into strategic places.
Which one did the bride choose to wear on her wedding day? - All FOUR of course!
And luckily, all pieces I created so that they could be placed into her own hair with ease, using each hair piece's own clip that it comes already fitted with.

Why choose the  Lino Range at Annabelle's Wigs ? - because these fantastic affordable pieces can be styled with heat and make your hair look extra shiny and healthy.

1950's hair and make up for secret cinema screening of Grease the musical

Art Nude Photo shoot

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form. I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs. It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks; Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold.  Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up. I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan  and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos. The photo above is my favourit
