This week I was involved in a fellow colleagues final project to finish her hairdressing course at college. Her theme was animals and today's post will show you how I went from Girl to Lion.
To start off my hair Sam curled my hair into tight ringlets. After an hour of curling since my hair is quite literally as thick as a lions fur coat, she shook out the curls and back combed the hair situated around my crown to give it more volume and to make it look more 'manely'. She finished with a Dutch braid across the front of my head and plenty of hairspray and texture dust to set. My hair was then complete and all that had to be added was my 'fur'. This consisted of hair like fluff from Hobby Craft tucked around a choker.
Once my hair was complete I was sent to Laura Sutherland (check out her website here) to allow my face to match my mane on my head. Laura used an airbrush machine to give me my lion features and then to make my lion slightly more glamourous she gave me an edgy, dramatic cat eye with liquid and pencil liner.
I was incredibly happy how I turned out and since I was going out later on in the day I removed my makeup and de-volumised my crown and I was good to go. It was a beautiful style I would happily wear again.
I hope you enjoyed reading and seeing the talents of Sam and Laura as much as I enjoyed being apart of it.
Have a good week,
