Preparing My Model For Her Next Photo-Shoot!

Getting a model prepared for a photo-shoot is a lot of fun and joint cooperation. Some models who are serious about there portfolio. And they will go to the ends of the earth to prepare for a schedule job.  And believe me it is a job, hair makeup, wardrobe, skin etc.  I go through a system for all my models. I run a add on model mayhem for all new models looking for photographs. I provide there wardrobe, a MAC Makeup class. Which we will get all needed cosmetics for the photo-shoot. that will match there outfit. I normally like to get dresses for my models. And I also like to use props for them, instead of doing the same old portrait shooting.  I have been a hairdresser/makeup artist for 30 years and started doing photography 7 years ago.

 

My models photo-shoot is at the end of the month and it was every important to get the right makeup formula’s. We used MAC Makeup foundation Studio Face and Body Foundation., Studio Fix Smooth Wear Concealer, for the face.  Mac Makeup Brow set for the eyebrows, 3D Black Lash Mascara, Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette in Dark to Medium Tones.  The contour palette was also used for the eye shadows and highlighting on the brow bone.  Always remember to learn how to manipulate your makeup kit for all uses.  For the lips we used Retro Matte Lipstick and also as a pencil for the lips. All MAC products were used for this makeup up session. And I would highly recommend using this line for photography, the product will not move or dissipate in color tones.  But most of all you really have to clean the face and also in photography you have to use a primer for the outdoors. Especially in this Central Florida weather, or the makeup will melt off.

I like to buy my wardrobe from the following online clothing stores.

All these company’s provide lovely outfits for all times of the year.  All wardrobe is provide for free to all the models including hats, accessory’s, shoes.  I feel it is very important to script your photo-shoots and have the proper makeup that fits your model. By doing all of these before a photo-shoot then you will have a winning session. I feel through experience. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare.  Photo’s will becoming soon for her next photo-shoot at the end of the month.

Hair Stylist in Orlando loves Dry Shampoo By VS!

 

10672193_101522014 Joseph Kellner Photo-shoots.64429896750_5247921730790760419_ngoood Getting hair ready for a photo-shoot is very important. Such as Hair, Hair Color, Makeup and Setting of the Hair Design. If you have dry, fine hair and has no body in it. I would like to recommend Victoria’s Secret Dry Shampoo for you hair. This product will give fine, limp hair a extraordinary amount of volume. For photo shoots it is a live saver. I also like to curl the hair and break up the set and spray just a little on the root are and the beachy wave look is easily achieved.  We all know as editorial stylists that by a 5-6 hour shoot the hair is pretty lifeless. But this product will give you a extended time to work during the shoot. Love it!!!

I’ve purchased this multiple times now, it’s amazing! It helps matte the hair and bring volume to oily, second day hair! It’s especially useful if you accidentally used a little too much oily product in your hair. It has a light fresh smell of the “Body by Victoria” fragrance. If your nozzle gets clogged, try running it under hot water. If it breaks after you just bought it (its happened to me) just return it to your VS store (with or without the receipt!) and exchange it for a new one! It’s in their return policy.

Why brush cleaner is important to Makeup Artists!

Orlandomakeup.comAs a professional hair dresser and makeup artist you tools are very important. And they are not cheap. So when you are using top of the line makeup brush’s it is important to use the brush cleaner the manufacturer recommends and also makes. If they make the brush’s, I will use the cleaner made for the brush’s. Nearly all of my makeup brush’s are from MAC, and they are very expensive and they have also lasted me along time. This one product will clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibers so that brushes will last longer. It is convenient to use and is specifically designed to extend the life of high quality brushes. Brush cleanser leaves your brushes smelling fresh and clean, and helps shorten their drying time. Take my recommendation USE IT!!!!

Here are some great recommendations for this product!

“If you own MAC brushes or really just any brushes you must get this brush cleanser. I use it once a week and mix a little with some warm water in a glass and let my brushes soak for about 5 minutes and then rinse them off and lay flat to dry. It keeps my brushes in great shape and looking brand new!

“I used to wash my brushes with baby shampoo or natural hand soap. I’m so glad I gave this brush cleanser a shot. This brush cleanser is so light and lathers really well. It says it helps shorten drying time, and I have experienced it!”

“My routine is rinsing my brush under warm water, squeeze a few drops of this pink cleanser and start sweeping my brush. I couldn’t believe how soapy it got. It cleanse my brushes really well and it dries very quickly. My brushes seems to last longer, so soft and ready for application.”
“I was washing my brushes with some baby shampoo, but that was not cutting it. Left too much residue and just did not rinse my MAC ,  Sigma, Be, and sheer cover brushes clean. So once my local MAC restocked this (after being out of stock), I made the splurge. It is definitely worth it. It does clean the brushes to nearly new, and disinfects them. I only use my brushes on myself, but I am acne prone, so it is good to know that my brushes are washed clean. Two ways I use this: deep clean (once weekly) and spot cleaning (after each use).  To deep clean I dampen my brushes, always tilting so the brush head is facing down (never letting water seep into the ferrule). Then I take a small amount of cleaner and swirl my brush into it and work up a lather. Lastly, I rinse the brush clean and gently squeeze out the excess water. Spot cleaning: dampen a small portion (a couple drops will do) of a paper towel or Kleenex, and swirl the recently used (not dampened) brush gently into the towel.  Good buy, will be repurchasing for life.”
I recommend this product in my salon for all our makeup services.  Joseph Kellner top hair color salon in Orlando.

Men can look Younger with Hair Color!

Hey Guys! Our gray hair can make you look distinguished or it can make you look old and tired. Sometimes it lends credibility and other time it lands you a date at the retirement home for a 4 p.m.dinner.  I know guys who gray prematurely and find themselves mostly gray in their mid 30′s, and I also know guys in their late 40′s that have not shown any signs of graying–not fair, but true. Whatever you decide to do about it, you should feel comfortable with the decision.

Men and hair coloring have been taboo subjects. For some the conversation is just as “off the table” as the “don’t ask, don’t tell” gay policy for the military. But regardless of its status, men’s home hair coloring business is booming. According to industry experts, it grew by over 10% during 2012.

What is the right color for you!

Any of us could color our hair pink, green or black (if we wanted to) but depending on our hair color, the process varies from a simple one-step hair color to a more complicated double coloring process. This said, here are the colors that are easiest to achieve with one-step colors. Generally, for those with black hair, it’s easier to achieve shades of red and dark brown. For those with brown hair, coloring to achieve other shades of brown, blond, caramel, and red tends to be more straightforward.

Finally, men with blond hair can easily get their hair lightened or altered to browns and reds.Your choice of color should also be based on the analysis of your skin tone.
There’s no general rule in determining which hair color will suit your skin tone best.

 However, men with darker complexions look better with “cooler tones.” The most flattering coloring options for men with darker skin tones are golden highlights, golden with red highlights, golden brown, honey brown, chestnut, copper, auburn, mahogany, and warm tones of gray and white. On the other hand, guys with pale skin should opt for warmer colors. For more flattering results, choose colors such as plum, burgundy highlights, ash, platinum blond, brown, dark brown, black, slate, salt and pepper, and white.

Here are some tips about home hair color and read them wisely!

Your “natural” color is lighter than you think. Always go for a color that’s a shade lighter than what you think you need. The longer the stuff stays on your head the darker it becomes. So pay attention to time. Use a mirror and make sure you get the back of your head as well. Just because you can’t see back there, doesn’t mean the rest of the world cannot either. The dye will stain your skin, meaning anywhere it touches including your forehead, ears, hands. It also stains wood cabinets and even tile (don’t ask how I know.) The older you get the lighter your hair should be. If you are thinking of dying your hair, don’t wait until your head is completely gray or the change will be very drastic. “Whoa, what happened to you?” is not what you’re going for. Once you get started, you’ll need to do it every few weeks. It’s a commitment. Spend a few dollars and have a professional do it. You won’t regret it.

Good Luck!

Makeup needs to change for a haircolor change!

IMG_05406543copy.JPG

People who apply makeup professionally are called makeup artists. They deserve the title “artist,” because they play with colors to enhance and highlight your natural beauty, a hairdresser does the exact same. It is true that both makeup artists and hairdressers work off the same color wheel yet the makeup artist has an easier job when learning the trade because with a little cleanser and water the makeup comes off when it’s not a desired result, not so easy for the hairdresser .There are many theories on how to select your colors in makeup and hair and all have their own unique points. For me as a hair color specialist my theory is whether its makeup or hair color we need to apply both cool and warm tones on any individual, each compliments each other when placed correctly beside or on top of each other this is how we balance. The fact is; all human beings are made up of many tones; take for an example a pale (cool) skinned brunette (warm) with blue eyes (cool), she’s warm and cool just how Mother Nature made all of us. My beliefs is for all hairdressers and makeup artists to learn the most important basic fundamentals in each respectful domains, and both will realize makeup and hair color can draw ideas from each other, enhance and highlight the same features, eye color, skin tone, bone structure, hair because they both work off the universal color wheel.

I have had the honour of working with some of the world’s best and finest makeup artist and have learnt many things and tricks; makeup has been an insightful learning element in my career as a hair colorist. Makeup artists as well as a hairdresser sometimes use the same techniques (makeup layers and blends so does hair color. Now can you imagine you the consumers going to a hairdresser who offers you to finish your visit with a change of lip and or a blush color after your new or freshened up hair color, nice huh!.Still to this day I love working with makeup artists and doing a little makeup on my clients, after all if I am sending someone home after a change to their hair color with the same makeup they came in with truly my job isn’t finished and when makeup connects to hair color it works in harmony for the ultimate end result to achieve individual beauty. Talk with you client on ideas of makeup change for her new haircolor. This is a must!
