Kyla - Amazing Hair!
Kyla - Amazing Hair!
Some of my favorite people to collaborate with on photoshoots are often hair stylists; they are so creative and I always find it so amazing what can be done with hair! Kyla was no different, she called me wanting to do some photos for the Goldwell Color Zoom competition and I was very excited about it! Kyla has been in the industry for 14 years and currently works out of Shampoo, a very cool salon downtown Edmonton. Kyla was telling me how the industry really picked her, she started colouring and cutting her friends hair in grade 6, so it just made sense for it to become a career. Her love for the hair industry is so apparent, and it comes as no surprise that she has a full clientele and is often booking months in advance plus it helps that she loves people and she considers her clients as her friends.
Her motivation for entering this competition came from a need to step outside her comfy zone, as she describes it. Her inspiration for the cut came from a competition class and as for the colour, she says she loves to use one base colour and play with different shades of it for texture and dimension. As you will see from the photos below, the hair is amazing! Her concept for the photoshoot was to keep it simple to really showcase the hair preferable using a simple background. We did the photoshoot at our mutual friend Jacquline's house, who as always did a most amazing job on the make-up! In her spa space at her place she had this gorgeous light teal and white wallpaper which ended up being such a perfect background. And then we just played with different angles and accessories to see what we could come up with. Chrissy, who Kyla had found to be her model was so stunning and seriously has one of the coolest tattoos I have ever seen so we wanted to try to showcase that as well in a few of the photos.
Anyways, check out the faves below and Kyla, I can't wait to hear how you do in the competition, I think you did such a fantabulous job :)
