Thrift and Shout on the Runway

Hi Everyone! As I mentioned last week, I had a super busy weekend!
My brother got married on Saturday! It was a beautiful, super heartfelt celebration! I will post more on that another day!
Then on Sunday I had the privilege of styling a runway show for the amazing salon I work for; Kenneth's Hair Salons and Day Spas. I was put up to the task of dressing 18 models according to the hair stylist's vision. The theme of the show was Then and Now. It was all about how to take retro looks from the 50's, 60's, and 70's and make them modern! I was really excited about this theme because making vintage modern is what I love to do! The sad part is that I already had a lot of the clothes in my collection but I did do some shopping as well! As always, I dressed all of the models head to toe in thrift store finds! Here are some scenes from the day:

  the models all wore these painters suits on stage until their hair was done
 some of the stylist's even had their own fan club!

 Another lovely model dressed in a sleek 50's look! Her hair wasn't finished buy the color is amazing- especially considering she came in with pink hair!

 This was my favorite cut of the day! I really want to get my hair cut like this! What do you think?

It was so much fun seeing the hair, the makeup, and the clothes some together to create these looks! I feel very lucky to get to work with such amazingly talented people!
