CAN HAIR HELP AN ACTOR BOOK MORE WORK?

 Can hair help an #actor book more work?

Yes. Yes, it can!

Meet Madonna Magee. 

A beautiful actress with acting in her blood.

Now.. I LOVE to create looks and transformations. I love to style looks.

And I love to create new ways to market people and products and in this instance...

Madonna the Actress.

Madonna has super fine hair and I can relate. So do I.

So..The first thing I did was talk about hair with Madonna and how she could have a BIG range if she got some clip in extensions or wigs.

And what hair styles would work for her!

Some folks love working with wigs, while others really enjoy playing with clip in extensions.

NOW...

Madonna's BEFORE shot is a nice straight forward headshot. 

You can see in the first before / after what a HUGE difference HAIR makes!

Now Madonna has options!

And so.. Madonna and I discussed hair styles ( braids, layered look, short, long etc.) and then I set Madonna up with one of my lovely & talented make-up artists who accompanies clients to the hair shop and helps them try on wigs and extensions.

Clients also enjoy a nice discount on whatever they order through my mu artist!

Check out these braid looks! Love them! And... They've been getting her AUDITIONS!

Then we went over wardrobe and I worked with Madonna with styling a wardrobe and hair look for each specific category that the agent had requested. Madonna is repped for commercials by Hugh Leon at Coast To Coast and ... Hugh the agent requests many specific looks so the agency can submit on the nuance of the casting. 

It's a lot of work and planning but worth it to see the end result!

AND... We also got many theatrical ( film / television) looks too!

Which makes it a successful shoot! 

We did the work and created range and options for Madonna.

We got shots that show many different nuances and characters 

so Madonna and her Manager and agents can submit on a variety of different

roles in ALL markets, commercial / theatrical and print.

And... We had fun doing it!

AND... Lol.. Last "And" but it's a good one, AND... Photos are working

and Madonna is getting auditions!

YES!!

So... Ah yeah.

Hair can make a HUGE difference!

 

 

 

 

 

Coffin 2 - Coming soon to you!

We recently shot an alternate movie cover for Coffin 2.

 

 

Pretty fun. One of the actors and producers on the film, Scott Hamm got to hold a prop gun and wear a tight black t-shirt. Lol..

I like these kind of shoots because you get to act. Actually ..I encourage actors to act in their head shot / portrait sessions and I can always tell if a client has dropped it or no longer in the moment. I bust you! Haha.. It's true. Ask any of my clients. As a result.. You get better pictures!

Getting back to Coffin:2. It's really good. Takes you on a fun ride! 

You may have see the original "Coffin" with Kevin Sorbo and this is the sequel.

Look for it on Amazon, Red Box coming soon!

Sweet BEE Magic - Save your skin!

It's tuesday Nov 29th 2016 and it's feeling a lot like winter! Even by L.A. standards! 

I don't know about you but.. My skin had been getting crazy!

One day it was itchy and dry, the next itchy and oily! 

A couple of weeks ago it started looking corse. I said to my mom in my best jersey accent " Ma! What the hell?! Do you see what I'm seeing?! My skin looks like crap!" 

Of course my Mom never lies to me and she agreed my skin was looking completely wack. Totally stressed me out. :} And.. Guess what? I had ran out of my sweet "BEE Magic" and foolishly thought I could get by without it for the last month.  Silly Keli!  :)

I ran, not walked but ran to my local Whole Foods, hey I needed to pick up some almond milk barista style and a piece of chocolate raspberry cake with real raspberries, so delicious! Wow do I sound LA or what?! I walked into WF and there it was like a ray of sunshine! "Medicine Mama's sweet BEE Magic" All in one healing cream!! 

Ingredients: organic extra olive, fruit oil, organic cera alba ( beeswax), organic honey, propolis extract, bee pollen, royal jelly. 

MY SKIN HAS RETURNED! YAY! No more dry itchy skin. Texture of my skin has done a complete 180 and I'm looking like me again! Woo Hoo! :D

For those of you who like Egyptian Magik face cream, I find that BEE Magic works even better on my skin and it costs much less!

You can get a small jar of Bee Magic at Whole Foods to try out for around $20 or less when it's on sale. Remember when you buy anything at Whole Foods keep your receipt. If you buy a bottle of sweet BEE Magic and you don't like it, take it back with your receipt and Whole Foods will give you a full refund.

But.. If you have dry problem skin try BEE Magic you're gonna love it! :D

Let the healing begin!
