Beautiful Fül SS 2014 by Karla Ticas

Very excited to see the final picks from the Beautiful Fül SS 2014 look book I did with photographer Karla Ticas.  Inspired by the 1950's retro era, we channelled a modern day punk rock Elvis for Jimmy and a little Amy Winehouse vibe for Leia.

Workaholics

This had to be one of the funnest shoots I have ever been on.  I got to groom the Workaholics boys for Bello Magazine's April 2014 issue.  I love their shown Comedy Central and was pleasantly surprised that they were just as awesome in person!

Pool Invasion | Review Summer Campaign

A few months back I worked on the summer campaign for this German brand Review and I think it has to be one of the funnest jobs I've ever been on.  It was about a week long and I was so sad that it had to end.  The crew was so awesome and our models were the best you can ask for.  The ad finally came out and I wish I was back to that gorgeous house in the Hollywood Hills with all these fun and sweet kids.  Check out the commercial and campaign!

I had the chance to work with The Originals star Claire Holt again for Glamaholic Magazine.  This time we played with loose sexy waves to go with the gorgeous makeup Nicole Walmsley did for Claire.  This girl is so darn sweet and such a natural beauty.  Always a pleasure!

Penelope & Coco's New Campaign

Penelope & Coco's new line of oxfords are out!  All of us girls went all the way out to the desert to shoot this campaign and it was totally worth every moment.  I got to play with some fun texturized braids and interesting shapes on our model.

Guy's Girl | Foam Magazine March/April 2014

I'm a big fan of Graham Dunn's work, so it was a pleasure to finally work with him on this editorial for Foam magazine.  We shot at this really cool commune  in Topanga Canyon then moved to the gorgeous beach.  Besides the insanely cold winds, the day was beautiful  It's still weird to think that I make a living by working with cool people in cool places all day.  What a life!

Hair Talk:
1.  I misted Sabine's hair down with Unite's Beach Day and rough dried it with my fingers and a blow dryer.  Concentrating on lifting the roots and almost scrunching the mid-shaft to create a lived in second day texture.
2. Once the hair is completely dried, I used a 1inch iron to randomly curl the middle of the hair,m leaving the ends and roots untouched.  When curling, make sure you curl each strand in different directions .
3. Finish up with a little Big Sexy Hair's volumizing dry shampoo on the roots to soak up any oil and to give a little lift.  Evenly mist Unite's Trick Spray and a light hair spray on the ends for texture and separation.

Claire Holt for Bello Magazine March 2014

Got to work on this gorgeous The Original's main babe Claire Holt for the March issue of Bello. 

Hair Talk-
1.  On damp hair use Oribe's Volumista all over and rough dry it with blow dryer and hands.  The look should read more lived in so the more texture the better.
2.  Grab random sections starting in the front,  wrap hair around a 1 inch curling iron directing the wave away from the face and leaving out the ends.  Concentrate mostly on the mid-shaft of the hair.
3.  Once everything is curled, spray Dry Texturizing Spray all over each strand and slightly back comb the ends of the hair with a wide tooth comb until you see more of  messy texture.
4.  Pull all the hair towards the back to a low pony tail leaving out random strays and pieces in the front for a natural and loose look.
5. Finish with a Finishing Hairspray

Alexa PenaVega for Bello Magazine March 2014

I've worked with Alexa a few times before and cannot express how much I adore this girl.  She's probably one of the coolest, hottest, and funniest chicks I have ever met. This time around I got to really have fun with her.  Big hair don't care.

Hair Talk:
1.  On damp hair, even distribute Oribe's Grandiose hair plumping mousse all over then in sections on the crown and apex, spray Maximista on the roots for extra lift and hold.
2.  Blow dry with a medium sized round brush, over directing everything as much as possible for maximum volume.
3.  Once the hair is completely dried, curl hair in small to medium sections with a 1 inch iron.  Make sure all the sections are all similar in size and the curls are being curled in the same direction.  Consistency is key for this look.  After every curl, make sure to pin it to set and cool.
4.  After releasing the pins, working from the nape up, brush out each section with a Mason Pearson brush, spray with thick dry finishing spray to expand the curls, then back comb gently with a wide tooth comb to push the hair closer to the roots to achieve a fuller cropped look.  Continue all the way to the crown.
5.  When working on the front, create and deep side part and create finger waves around the hairline with either a comb or fingers for a classic 1950's feel.
6.  Finish with a hard hold hair spray.
