I have been cutting, coloring and styling Stephanie's hair for close to a decade. Not only is she one of my biggest inspirations she is my partner in crime when it comes to hunting upstate NY antiques and vintage. We have shared many laughs, coffees and Sunday drives together. She is my number one gal, always ready to step up and help me vend my merchandise at my burlesque shows and be an amazing sounding board of honesty and reason. She is my bestie. Steph wears her hair short which shows off her killer profile and gorgeous long neck. Sometimes in-between salon visits she will color her hair at home. We took her red-brown, uniform box color and triple processed her with multiple tonings. It is pretty much impossible to go from dark brown to blonde in one night - but she was up for the many hours of work it takes to make it perfect. Foiled her, with balayage in between the foils. Rinsed. dried. Changed the direction and foiled her again and toned the highlighted hair in between with a level 7, slate blue, gray blonde. Rinshed. Aggressively cut her fringe. Dried and then toned again with 2 fashion colors. Styled with my marcel iron and brushed her curls. We decided to call it - punk rock princess Di. I have complete hair envy.
Ausra is an all around super woman. Not only does she have a 9-5 day job, she is a mother, wife, women's rights activist, stand up paddle boarder AND a Lithuanian food blogger! (Follow her here http://vaikaivanile.com/ )
I have been cutting Ausras hair for years and when she approached me and Alison Dollaway from A.Doll Photography about doing her head shots, it was an obvious no brainer. I have always loved cutting Ausra's hair into a bold, head turning pixie cut. To have the opportunity to make her up and style her was an unforgettable experience. You can not deny the swan like qualities of her long, lean neck and arms. She has beautiful green eyes and a smile that melts. She is true beauty inside and out.
