Sebastian Saved My Style Event

Aaaah, finally back to Dayton to relax for a week before we set out for Texas!  I’ve been meaning to post about this super fun event, but when you put nearly 7,000 miles on your car in 18 days, it usually means you’ve been kinda busy 😉  But as much as Richard and I have enjoyed the gypsy life, we are looking forward to settling down once we get to Austin.

The Monday after working the Christian Siriano show we held an awesome even in the Meatpacking District in NYC.  It was such a privilege to be a part of it.  Basically, Sebastian Professional set up shop for the day and invited passers-by to walk through a wind tunnel (a simulated hair emergency) and then have one of the Sebastian artists fix their hair.  We had most of the Sebastian Core team there, plus some awesome Design Team members and of course, me and Heather Rae!

One of the coolest parts of the event was that almost all of my clients for the day were from different countries!  I had Germany, France, Russia, Ukraine, Canada and South Korea all represented, plus people from different parts of the United States.  I always have fun meeting people from near and far so it was pretty awesome.

Also, once people had their hair fixed they could pose at the photo station and share their photos for some free Sebastian fix-it kits.  But these weren’t just any photo stations…  I’d have to say, we at Sebastian Professional had a lot of fun with these photos…..  Enjoy!

NYFW with Sebastian Professional

Hello! I’m chilling in Canada with Richard right now. We have put somewhere around 2,500 miles on the car in the last ten days between Dayton, Philly, NYC, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and now Toronto. Fall is just beginning and I am pretty cold! But last week in New York it still felt like summer.

First off, being in New York for New York Fashion Week has been a major dream/goal for me since I started doing hair a few weeks ago. I worked and even organized a few shows in Pittsburgh, but didn’t feel like I really had the right to say I had runway experience until it was in New York. And it just so happened that this year I would be in between jobs and cities during fashion week. I had nothing else to be doing, so I had no excuse not to try my hardest and email everyone who I thought might be helpful about getting to fashion week. And I did. And I went. 🙂

I feel like once a stylist has done a few fashion weeks it just becomes a part of what they do, but I have to imagine that everyone remembers there first one. So I was beyond thrilled to help with such an incredible show. It was so surreal to be working on Christian Siriano’s styling team with so many top artists from Sebastian Professional.

Anthony Cole did an incredible job designing a very modern, lived in, yet glamorous look for Siriano’s gorgeous gowns. Really, the dresses were beyond beautiful and beyond time. They had flow, they had structure, just the right amount of sparkle and skin when you wanted it. I am just so thankful to have been able to be a part of such a gorgeous collection and to work beside such an incredible team: Anthony Cole, Omar Antonio, Marylle Koken, Diva Poulos, Luis Payne, Heather Rae, Celso Enrique, Sasha Zhogi and, of course, Christina McCarver. Thank you all so much for always being welcoming and wonderful.

Below are some photos, but there are better photos HERE.
