Warrior girl photoshoot

Sometimes it'sa treat to 'get down and creative' with a good hair and makeup team. Inspired by some images online and a sprinkling of 'Game of Thrones' I wanted to create a warrior/mad max style girl shoot and use some of our more boho/tribal accessories to different effect.
  Liz owner of 'Sizzors Wizards' did the amazing transformation on the girls hair plus she styled Jessie's outfit for me and manhandled her horse Star  on the shoot which was great! Jessie's hair went from being natural blonde/brown to having crazy extensions platted and weaved in for a real wild but cool effect!
 I styled Stacy who had a beautiful red tone in her hair that tied in with the fur I had brought. Tribal Jewellery was by 'primark' (where would we be without Penneys!) Including the feather earring in her hair.

We also had the pleasure of shooting with a beautiful bird of prey from Dromoland School of Falconry
( 061 368144 )and they also supplied us with the cool crossbow! I have to say it was lovely to do something a bit different from our everyday looks and work with the beautiful animals too!

Melissa Healy did a fab job on the makeup for Jessie and Stacy giving the eyes a real pop with the black and the blues and reds. It's definitely not an everyday look but something that you could wear to a themed night out or Halloween of course so bear this in mind ladies you can book both stunning hair and makeup looks in Salon for your special occasion starting at €40pp .  ( 065) 6849852

Indian/outdoor boudoir styled photoshoot

Making use of the sunshine in Galway recently I had was excited to style an outdoor boudoir shoot  with the stunning Sian Murphy (Catwalk Models) . I have worked with Sian before so I knew this look would suit her amazingly well. Sian is available for modelling and promotional work you can contact her on
The makeup look was created by Fiona Coyne of Heaven Scent in Galway 091 567192
Hair Length was achieved with one of our black hairpieces ideal for adding volume also! These are a sneaky option for boudoir shoots also to give that 'big' hair' or 'long hair' effect in an instant.
The skirt and shawl were sourced in Amsterdam ..I also came by an authentic Navaho Indian headpiece which is great for anyone looking to try out this look on a boudoir/outdoor shoot (big thanks to Paddy and Jill for this!I love it ! )
The faux Teepee was built with some timber adorned with lace and fur and I borrowed my daughter Veda's dreamcatcher too!
Brenda Bradley (of BH hair studio ) managed to be passing by..spotted us and hauled some of these bits from my car boot with me..thanks Brenda! We sure got some funny looks from passers by!
Accessories/bikini/jewellery by Penneys and various markets across Europe .
If you are looking for something a bit different to the studio look give us a shout!
