Women in Menswear Shoot Series #1

Menswear shoot series #1. “Women in Menswear” is a series that I’m creating this year with Photographer Holly Seeber.  I came up with this concept because I wanted the focus to be heavily set on my cuts and colors without a lot of background “noise.”  For this series I also …

Portland Streetwear Shoot

Portland Streetwear shoot. This was actually me and Holly’s second photoshoot together.  I wanted something raw, urban, and extremely edgy. With Magpie’s hair I created a bowl cut first before coloring.  This way I could see how her hair was going to lay.  I then colored her roots a level …

Mad Men Style

Men’s Cut

I figured it’s about time to showcase my men’s cuts. Model, my brother of course!  Matt just moved from Vegas and is now a tattoo artist at Hopeless Ink so pretty much anything goes with his hair.  For awhile he was leaving the top ridiculously long and shaved one-length on …
