A Vintage Wedding in Brighton

I have chosen to share with you hair and make up from last weeks wedding.

When my bride turned up for her trial she told me that she never ever wore make up and definitely didn't do anything interesting or different with her hair.
But it just so happened that my luck was in - She had visited a photographic studio to create some beautiful photos as a wedding gift to her husband to be.  whilst at this photo shoot, the make up artist gave her quite a vintage look with thick black eyeliner and flicks and bright red lipstick.

My bride loved this look so much that she asked me to recreate it for her wedding day (something she never would have dreamed of before)

At her trial, after recreating the make up look that she desired we played around with her hair, looking at different styles to go with her make up and wedding dress.
She thought she had decided to go with a large side bun when she completely changed her mind after trying on her wedding dress for the final fitting where she could only picture herself with one hair style that I had given her...... Hence, the final look was created!;

The bride was extremely happy for her wedding day, and all guests were pleasantly surprised with how she looked, her husband?............................ Over the moon!
Dear Amy,

Thank you so much for my amazing hair and make up, it made me feel like a movie star and caused quite a stir with our wedding guests. The vintage look really made a statement while still looking like me. As someone who hates having her photo's taken your styling gave me the confidence to to smile at the camera all day. I can't recommend you highly enough.
Love Betty x

Egyptian Photo shoot with Faith Obae

PLEASE NOTE - THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY Leading on from the art nude photo shoot with Photographer Richard Maxim, one of the required looks was based on an Egyptian theme. Richard asked if we could aim towards a traditional Egyptian look, based on stonework; I love the finished photos :-) We then gave it more of a fashion look             Finishing off with  a more creative Egyptian look; Hair and make up - Amy Prifti Model - Faith Obae Photographer - Richard Maxim Stylist - Falcieri Designs

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

Recently I was contacted by two local girls who was going off for a secret cinema screening of Grease the Musical.  They asked if I could do their hair and make up 50's style so that they looked the part! I love doing hair and make up like this as it is so much fun.  I love any make up from the 1920's onwards as woman really knew how to style themselves and how to wear their make up with pride..... that and big red lips! Here, with the girls permission are the before and after shots of them.

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
