I had the chance to spend a day at Changing of the Garnet with Susie Maurice, an Orillia hair stylist and her sister Rejeanne, an Orillia make-up artist. During the day I had the chance to capture an array of beauty portraits – and what a spectacular day it was!
I had the chance to photograph 8 different models; all with different hairstyles and makeup applications thanks to the amazing talents of Susie and Rejeanne Maurice; owners of Changing of the Garnet.
After photographing Melanie’s amazing chocolate brown curls, I had to chance to capture Denise and her fiery red hair! Here’s a little info about Denise’s look:
Susie Says: “One of the most fashionable looks at the moment is super sleek, straight hair… and if you can pull it off with bangs, all the better! Denise has amazing hair; a stylists dream, really. With only a little bit of extra straightening required, and some finishing serum for that sleek look, Denise rocked this look! A dramatic look like pin-straight hair is only intensified when you add colour to it. We didn’t actually alter Denise’s colour at all; she came to us that morning with a vibrant red already in her hair. The serum we used helped add shine and intensify the colour; a must-have product for any red-head!”
Rejeanne Says: “Denise has amazing red hair and super intense brown eyes so I didn’t want to darken her look with your typical ‘smokey eye’. Instead, I opted to add colour to the eye; not as shadow but as liner! Most girls go to their standard black or brown eyeliner for daily wear but if you can pull off a great colour liner, like blue, then go for it! The blue liner on Denise’s eyes compliment not only her eye colour but her hair colour too – it helps bring the look from high-school-sweet to edgy and chique!”
