So excited to finally see and share these photos with the world! We've been waiting a while for these to get picked up and published and wa lah! Here it is!
I picked up these two wigs a while ago on a random hair shopping trip with no idea what to do with them. I thought they were so cute and wanted to add them in my wig collection.
When Brian and I decided to collaborate I wanted to put these babies to good use. We came up with a corky concept inspired by Hitchcock's Bird meets a Cohen brothers film. Naturally, when we decided to make this shoot happen in Palm Springs, we had to give a little Sinatra vibe. This was such an amazing and fun shoot, we had the best crew and most amazing memories from this weekend.
Hair Talk: For the wigs, they're synthetic, and most synthetic wigs come looking so shiny and halloween looking. Now, I didn't mind the wigs to look wiggy, that was part of the whole corky concept. BUT I wanted to add my deconstructed touch to it so I sprayed it with lots of cheap drug store dry shampoo (You know, the ones that you cant use on yourself or any brunette because it makes you look like you have gnarly dandruff), back combed, and picked it out the curls with a wide tooth comb until I broke down 50% of the curls. Once that is done, I sculpted the wig to the shape I wanted and sprayed it with a hard holding hair spray like Paul Mitchell's Extra Body Finishing Firm.
