Makeup + Hair Examples with Ellen 

These images are all clients Ellen and I have worked with on makeup + hair. These examples are intended to help you visualize how the manipulation of hair can help bring out the different sides of yourself. Hair and makeup combined help bring life, variety and dimension to your shoot! A little goes a long way with this.

Most hair add-ons require blow outs for fullness and/or the use of hot tools and various hair products throughout the shoot.

We will supply everything for you. 

Please note that not all images have been retouched! 


Examples of Before & After Hair Add-On (and after makeup is already applied).

This hair change takes time! Curly hair is amazing but can look dry at the ends and frizzy with an inconsistent curl pattern. It's important for women with curly to hair to have a professional help even out the texture and curl pattern so it is polished and full throughout.
