During my Hair Design course, my teacher approached me about an opportunity to create a doll for an upcoming "doll head show" the department would be having. The theme was a revival of 60's and 70's hair. I was really excited to create something for this show and incorporate a couple of my favorite features of the 60's: floral swimming caps and the bee hive. I started off with a sketch and went from there! I constructed this completely out of hair and topped it off with make up that would have been worn in the time period.

For our mid term, our teacher provided us with a special occasion dress and had us create a hair style that would compliment the look. This was a bit challenging for me because I got a really beautiful dress but didn't know where to begin. With help from my fashionista cousin, I was able to replicate a run way look that fit the dresses style perfectly. It ended up fusing ancient history with the space age; modern and classic. We also did the make up on our doll to enhance the look.
Today was my second to last day of my Hair Design class (basically up do's and styling). This class was amazing. I learned sooo much. Hair styles that used to fascinate me and boggle my mind as to how they were made, are no longer such a mystery. This includes my favorite of all: The Beehive!!! I was able to style a couple of friends hair for special events and over all gained a lot of confidence. My teacher, Mr. Albert Grasiano, was a true artist and shared a lot of knowledge with us. I truly feel honored to learn under such a talented man. Enjoy!
