Curly Girl Diaries- Episode 1


I am honored to be the very first segment of the Curly Girl Diaries Project for 2014!  This project was created by my super creative and talented buddy Pete Monsanto of FlyLifeImages. I’m not sure if you all remember him but he was the photographer of my post ‘Impromptu Shoot- NYC’. 

Ok so here’s how it all went down.  As I arrived on location, I introduced myself to the lovely makeup artist Nicole Frances and Shayne Brooks filming behind the scene video and stills and we got straight to work.  With an iTunes music shuffle of PharrellJ*Davey and Mayer Hawthorne playing in the studio – the creative juices started to flow.  In a matter of four hours – makeup was done, three looks were photographed and a video was filmed.  Oh yeah! As for the video, I just wanted to speak briefly and give my opinion when asked that infamous question “Do you think wearing your natural hair is a fad”?   

A huge Thank You to the team who braved the frigid weather to capture such amazing pics.

This project was a total blast!  I hope you enjoy it.
