From silky shine to dreaded dreads, to set, onto the girl’s head, photographed, posing, back on the slab, tired dreadful dreads, to rested pretty hair.
I never throw away the hair I work with. It’s a loyal friend, especially when treated with love. In fact, damaged hair is the most pliable, malleable, cooperative, beautiful hair, that flourishes with a gentle nudge.

Kinda like people; the most damaged are the most beautiful inside, under the rough exterior.

After Blackbook shoot. First to arrive, last to leave. An empty studio is a scary, eerie place. Such is my life.

Ever since first I saw “The Misfits” as a child, it struck me how rough Marilyn’s wig looked. I recently stumbled upon her hair and makeup tests for this film, in soft make up and her own hair styled in a gentle, airy style, all of it very flattering. Who knows what took place between that test and the time on set with that chalky, hard wig and the kabuki face.
And all of that, under a crazy hard, unforgiving desert sun.

I’m loving this Autumn-y Summer. It feels like a win over Evil. Taking over from the vulgar, corrosive sun.
