The Inspiration:
I took elements of historical costuming and combined them with the beauty of nature to create this year’s shoot. Overall, my goal was to keep the hair beautiful and believable. One piece was inspired from Elizabethan clothing, one very bird/feather-like, and the last I worked with braiding to create a Grecian and coral-like piece.
The Challenge:
The braided shape—I can’t tell you how many hours went into that piece! I braided and glued until I couldn’t see straight. The end result was so worth it, though!
