Back when I first moved to Toronto, I had a hell of a time explaining to my Dad what it was that I was studying in college. I was enrolled in a program called Fashion Arts, which interestingly enough, didn’t have much to do with art at all, but instead, was all about marketing and promotion for the fashion and cosmetic industries. Whether it was the name that threw him off or just his disbelief that someone could actually go to school for this kind of stuff, I don’t know, but whenever conversation turned to school, my Dad would always ask me “So what is this course about again? You’re going to be a model or something?” Sigh.
Recently though, I did have the chance to play the model. The hair model! And in this particular case, I didn’t have to look like the girls you see on the fashion runways – I just had to be brave enough to let someone dye my hair a bright shade of red for the L’Oréal Professionel INOA Revolutionary Reds contest. Being the adventurous gal that I am, when I saw that Tianna Gerrior, a participating hair stylist, needed a volunteer, I signed up!
When I walked into Hair Château, the salon where Tianna works, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after a quick chat, it was clear that she had some dramatic inspiration – she was going to transform my hair into a head full of fire! Now I could describe the process, but in this case, I think photos will be a lot more amusing.
|First things first: the lighter the hair, the brighter the colour. Blonde, here I come!|
|Eeek! Good thing I didn’t stay here too long!|
|And we have fire! And me making the facial expression
I imagine I would have were I actually on fire. Funny, I haven’t
gotten any calls from any modelling agencies yet.
