This shoot was inspired by and created for our beloved clients of Studio Be Salon. Every model in this shoot has been a guest our salon for years, and we wanted to celebrate that cherished relationship between them and our stylists.

“We really wanted to capture the natural aspect of the clientele that we get to work with every day, and to show everyone’s  honest beauty,” said Artistic Director Laurie Kus.

Our first model, Renee, is a client of stylist Ellen Albertz.

Ellen gave Renee undulating waves to accentuate her lightly textured cut and red color. For product, we used Refuge Rejuv, Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear and Volumewhip. Renee is the owner of Plato’s Closet in Fort Collins, so she styled herself from her own ample wardrobe.

For our second model, Tarryn Farrell, we wanted a polished, bright look.

We went bright and natural with her blonde color, and added Easi Hair Pro extensions for volume and length. For product, we used Refuge Rehab, Marula Oil Primer and Dry Oil. Lemons and Lace provided her adorable outfit!

For our last model, Abbey Boeding, we wanted to play up her fun natural texture, so we used a smoothing iron for a playful and undone texture. For product, we used Refuge Reamp, Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydro Oil and Sea Spray. J.B. Elliott provided her cozy-cute get-up.

We’re so grateful to have such talented, creative individuals at Studio Be Salon.
