 Hair!

Dark Garden's show at the Edwardian Ball 2012 had the most amazing hair styles. Elaborate styles were needed to best uphold and display hair jewelry and hats.  As we wrote in the article <"Edwardian Ball 2012 - Photographer Audrey Penven"> resident designers, Kalico Delafay and Holly Bobisuthi, had a specific vision for the show and needed the collection of 13 ensembles photographed in advance.

Kalico brought on heavy hitter, Shannon Solano, who has designed hair for film, music, and special events as well as being available at the Elixir Salon & Spa in Berkeley two days a week.

Shannon enthusiastically created a dozen gorgeous hairstyles using models with hair from short and curly to long down their back or to their knees to dreads and extensions! Each style complemented the clothes and the model's face. At the photoshoot, Shannon carefully documented as she created because day of the Edwardian Ball she did it all again! This time she used her assistant Andrea Costanzo, mistress of the flat iron, and between the two of 
them managed to reduce the time to style a dozen women from 7 hours down to 5---and with pinning and pinning, made sure that the styles held up for a full night of show and 
 resplendent celebration afterwards. 

To top it off, as someone who was in the stylist chair for 45 minutes for an elaborate UpDo, the energy and conversation was just the right mixture of upbeat, supportive and respectful of my need to focus on telling a good story of the GHOSTS OF THE UNFORTUNATE HEIRESSES.

Thank you Shannon, I/we could not have done it without you.
