I have wanted to do a Valentine photoshoot and when Genna asked if we could set a day, I couldn’t wait! Isidro was available for makeup and we had the amazing models Emily and Kristina on set. For hair, I wanted to do both long and classic updos. I prepped both models with Redken Guts 10 and dried them with a round brush and hair dryer. I set the curls using the new Sam Villa Curling 2-in-1 Marcel Iron and Curling Wand and Iron Shape 11. After cooling, hair was brushed out with a wide-toothed comb and set with Fashion Works 12 for a cascading look. For the Updos I formed ponytail on the high points of the model’s head and backcomb the sections and rolled the hair into shape securing with hair pins and Fashion Work 12. The final look on Emily was created by fishtailing the entire head in random sections and securing all the ends to create an updo, secured with bobby pins and Control Addict 28. In the end we achieved exactly what we wanted: The looks are romantic, timeless with a vintage flavor.” – Matthew Tyldesley
It’s always a pleasure working with this team. The looks I created for this concept were very soft and romantic. Less was more as I didn’t want to overdo the makeup. Simplicity was a big part of elegance and I wanted people to see it through this beautiful images. – Isidro Valencia
