It’s not easy finding a long, HUMAN HAIR wig, in Chicago on short notice. So what do you do? Find a long, human hair, blonde wig and spend 5 hours tinting it red, cutting it and so on. Todd Baxter www.baxterphoto.com is one of my favorite conceptual photographers to work with. He photographed the perfect LIVE BULL in one state, the green field in another and photographed the talent at www.studiorentalchicago.com Somehow he perfectly placed it all together in computer land, to create this amazing, yet “very bad combination“ of events for THIS red head. Jennifer Levant found the perfect props and clothing!
Producer Annika Howe www.annikahowe.com helped keep this huge job running smoothly. She remembered me when another VERY LONG RED wig was needed. Thank you Annika! This wig was also needed on short notice, so once again it started blonde and finished red. But this one had to be styled, with a wet roller set over night to curl this damsel in distress.
The 3rd red wig gave me the opportunity to mix textures and quickly create a totally different look on model Elena Greenwell (Factor Talent) when testing with photographer Nate Smith firstname.lastname@example.org For this I used a dry hot set.
