PHOTO SHOOT: Elise G. collaboration with JoAnn Larpenter-Sinclair

A Beautiful Chameleon

Believe it or not, all of these photos were from the same photo session. Elise is wearing several different looks from beginning to end. These shots were taken for a competition 
(a joint project for Bumble and Bumble and W magazine websites). 

All hair by JoAnn Larpenter-Sinclair for GSpot Hair Design, Iowa City.
JoAnn also did the makeup on Elise except for the silver swimsuit shots, when I went over the makeup with my own make-up look (which I called "private school rebel"). 
Clothes were chosen from Revival, White Rabbit and Artifacts shops by JoAnn and I collaborated in choosing how to style them. 

Notes from the hair stylist (JoAnn):
 Name of Look: Era Apparent

Inspiration:  My goal was to incorporate as many of my favorite eras for big hair into one style, while still having my look be modern and fresh. It's equal parts late-1800's Gibson Girl, 50's rockabilly, 80's prom queen, 60's beach bombshell, with a sprinkle of  late-70's Dolly Parton rolled into the mix. The look is current, elegant and feminine with an undone, slept-in edginess.

1. Shampoo and condition with the appropriate products recommended by your hairdresser. Spray Bumble and bumble Tonic allover and comb through.
2. Spray  Bb Thickening Hairspray at roots and comb through.
3. Work Bb Thickening Full Form Mousse throughout, and round brush hair until completely dry.

4. Curl Random Sections with a  curling iron and Bb Spray De Mode.  Cool for 5 minutes to set and separate and rough up the curls with a brush and your with fingers. 
5. Pin back hair on sides with Holding Spray, then backbrush rest of hair and arrange the top until you like the shape. Throw a few pins in it to secure, and finish with Bb Thickening Creme Contour and Bb Spray de Mode.
