Crimson and Clover by Karla Ticas for Glassbook Magazine

So excited to finally share this editorial we did for Glassbook Magazine.  For this shoot we were really inspired by the latex pieces that our friend Renee had designed. She was in town with her new collection and we just had to get our hands on them.  One thing I really appreciate about  this career is that you get to work along side with all of your friends to create your version of art. There's no right or wrong, there's no rules and regulations, you just do what you feel is good.. And when you get a group of people that all feel the same way, it's the most amazing thing to be a part of.


Hair Talk:  

For our model's hair, I wanted to create sculpted shapes with wet textures.  I wanted it to feel gritty, dirty, and deconstructed.  I created a wet texture with Oribe's Gel Serum, Gold Lust Oil, a generous amount of shine spray, and Glycerin water.  With the texture already apparent, I played with knots and twists and braids, keeping in mind what the silhouette would look like with the tight fitting and structured clothing.

NCLA Runway Collection

So happy to share this new beauty campaign I worked on for NCLA.  Inspired by the 90's supermodels who have paved the way and set the standards for models today, we played with voluminous body and sexy waves on our muse.  

Hair Talk:

For our models hair, I prepped her damp hair with Oribe's Maximista spray then blew dry her with a medium round brush to polish and lift the roots.  After every section I pinned it up in barrel curls to cool ad set.  When finished, take out pins and lightly separate the hair with fingers.  Back comb at the roots of the crown and finish with Oribe's Superfine Hair Spray.

Penelope & Coco 2014 Campaign

Penelope & Coco's new line of oxfords are out!  All of us girls went all the way out to the beautiful desert to shoot this campaign and it was totally worth every moment. Maybe waking up at 5am wasn't the best part but spending a day with creatives in perfect warm weather just made me realize how lucky I am.  

I got to play with some fun texturized angel and fishtail braids on our model to go with our western/ desert queen theme.
