My fabulous photographer, Robert Raphael, and I will often shoot five or six different looks in one photoshoot. We do this in case one of the outfits looked better in the mirror than it did on camera. The day of this particular shoot my hair was stubborn and uncooperative. I came into this world with very kinky curly dark brown hair which I relax with a Keratin Treatment every three to four months.
I devoted an entire blog post to the saga of my hair about two years ago. As the day of our shoot progressed, so did the marine layer, leaving my hair a frizzy mess. Frustrated, I decided to put it up in a messy bun and leave the tendrils down, framing my face. I thought this look was well suited to this casual, sporty dress, and loafer combo. We softened the look by adding pink lip color and lip gloss (both by Marc Jacobs). The result salvaged what could have been a bad hair day, and instead, turned it into a good outfit day!
