Styling a model's hair for
a fashion show

 

Who is the one person you’d love to work with? I have actually been very lucky in that I have ticked off most of the boxes when it comes to people that I would most like to work with.

Where do you get your inspiration from? I get inspiration from absolutely everywhere; always keep your eyes open!

Most memorable mishap on a shoot/fashion show/ or with a celebrity:
There have been a few, but one that sticks in my mind was on a shoot not so long ago. The shoot required so many wigs and in the end we had about fifteen. We were shooting in LA and had spent the past week prepping the wigs which involved wet sets, blow-outs, hot rollers and curling irons. Basically, a lot of work went into these wigs. The day of the shoot we were on location outside and we had the wigs set up on tables in a garden area. We were still working on several wigs when all of a sudden all around us a sprinkler system decided to go off!! The wigs and I were soaked! A weeks work gone in a flash!
