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.
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!
So... Ah yeah.
Hair can make a HUGE difference!
