Summer has officially begun and for Brian & I, it all started with Bonnaroo. Now we’re out on #tour5 doin’ looks for the Paramore shows (more on that soon)… but we figured we’d send over some Pride inspo.
*A little backstory on our history together. Brian’s first work trip with Paramore was for the “crushcrushcrush” shoot. Even though he created the hairstyle/color for “Misery Business,” he and I never worked a real shoot together until after. At this point, it’s been over a decade and the work just feels like art now for both of us. We’ll keep you in the loop via Strands & our IG stories so you can see us at work behind the scenes on the current Paramore tour.* This Bonnaroo look was one of my favorites. I love when Brian just creates on a whim and uses my face as a canvas (see: the Melbourne look for tour 3). Per Brian’s orders, a look like this is NOT about being precise. Though blending is key to make the colors melt into each other. Basically, it’s all color theory/ROY G. BIV stuff.
Blend to your hearts content, honies. But never blend in.
Ps – a huge shout out to Morphe for sending Brian that MASSIVE color shadow palette.
