A couple of months ago, I helped my crazy talented hairstylist friend Alicia Rollins with her 2015 Contessa submission by agreeing to style her gorgeous models for the competition. The theme she chose was modern day superhero, which was quite fitting as the hair styles she created were out of this world (and superheroes show off by flying all over the place, right?).
For the costumes, I opted to use a mix of metallics and textured blacks. I draped the beautiful cape, created by local superstar designer Evan Clayton, over the shoulders of every model to create a cohesive superhero look.
The final product is stellar and I’m so happy to finally be able to share these photos with you! Alicia was selected as a finalist in the multicultural category yesterday and I know she is going to take home the gold on November 9th! Go Team ALICIA!
