HELMET!

I've been shooting a commercial today and the hairstylist put a whole bottle of spray into my hair - it looks like a wig and feels like a helmet! Like I can safely go and bump my head into doors and walls now.
Insane. (And we cut off hairs peeking out of the 'do. That's insane).
But anyway, it looks normal on film.

You look great, but somewhat terrifying. I feel like you are going to burst into song scolding me for not doing my homework or something.

Buggy : It will be out soon, online. It's very kitsch, for an online casino.

The thing i hate the most when I have a photoshoot or when I have to film is when the make up/hair artist exagerates on the amount of stuff on my face and hair when I, myself (being a designer who constantly has to work behind the cameras doing make up and hair on models), know it maybe wasn't that necessary. Sometimes we can achieve the same result with less products, specially if the products are good. And the worst part is that you can't say it, you just have to do what you've been told to, and be as graceful as you can...

That said, I can't imagine you not being graceful to a photographer or a director.. You look scary-ly loveable!

Stephanie : yes I know. Today, at first, I was a bit terrified of the whole look but then I silently mentioned I do my lips a bit different (they were so thin at first) and I helped her a bit out to lay the curls better, and in the end the result was good. But yes, mostly I just stay quiet and act nice :)

Hope you'll share the footage you shot with us! And that your hair recovers from all that product quickly :-P

crazy that they just cut of the hairs that don't fit the hairdo - like it doesn't matter what your hair looks like normally, just as long as it is ok for the shoot!

Oh that is gorgeous! I try to do that with my hair a lot, but it never works out like that haha
Will you post the commercial on here sometime?

Your hair was so cute. Very old style but still rocks. Love the color of your eyes and love the red lipstick. It compliments your nail and your dress.
