Orillia Hair Styling: Glam Braid by Susie Maurice

If you’re looking for some magnificent Orillia hair styling, look no further than Changing of the Garnet!  Susie Maurice, co-owner along side her make-up artist sister Rejeanne, have created this magnificent glam braid look for Jillian.

I spent the day at Changing of the Garnet a few weeks ago as Susie and Rejeanne created 8 different looks to add to their new portfolio.  The day was outstanding – the models were all gorgeous, the hair styles were supreme and the make-up was flawless.  I photographed some gorgeous natural curls, a fiery and fierce redhead, a modern bow inspired up-do and a boho chique beauty before I got the glamorous Jillian in front of my camera.

Here’s a little bit more information about Jillian’s look:

Susie Says: “Jillian’s look is amazing – she’s got a beautiful, symmetrical face, huge innocent eyes and an intense stare that can transform her into a seductive temptress.  She’s so incredibly unique that the only way to describe it is glamorous so I used that as my inspiration.  Jillian’s naturally long hair was perfect for adding volume and boy, did we add volume!  Her bone structure begs for a high hairdo.  I didn’t want to just do a regular up-do, though, so I combined the height on top with a long ever-so-slightly side-swept braid.  I kept the look chunky on purpose for that ultra-glam style.  This is a look that can work with jeans and a tank or with a little black dress.”

Rejeanne Says: “Jillian’s ice blue eyes are the perfect canvas for dark shadow and liner – she can totally rock a dark eye without it overpowering the entire look.  Because her hair was a little less structured than Ashley’s bow-inspired look, I faded out the shadows on her lid a little bit more creating a darker, sultry feel.  Instead of using strictly liner on her bottom lash line, I used a combination of black liner and brown shadow to create a somewhat smoky feel that still has a pop of colour to compliment her hair.  With hair this awesome and eyes so smoky, Jillian’s lips were to keep the focus on eyes and hair.”
