Sure hairdressing means long hours, hard work, and inspiration. But sometimes inspiration takes possession of you in the form of irony.
Ron Blush, hair and make-up artist with 17 years of experience now at Lucier Hair Color Studio in McLean, Virginia decided to capture a client’s excitement at having her hair done. But his approach was to be ironic and brimming with frivolity, resulting in these delightful and amusing shots and backstage insights.
First Blush pin curled Christine’s hair in small sections throughout the head and sprayed it with the Moroccan Oil hairspray before air drying it. Once he took out the pins, he started working on putting the foils around the perimeter of the top and front sections. The hair was then sprayed again and teased a little to give a fuller look.
“I believe that beauty lies in each and every one of us but its up to us to recognize and help the inner most beauty that we all possess,” says Ron.
Photographer Jackie Garcia added to the ironic setting by adding blue foils to complement the hair color and colorful fabrics for the shoot. “This shoot was meant to be bright and fun,” said Garcia. Right on!
