Unapologetic

The fusion of hair and makeup artists is a collaboration that goes beyond aesthetics. It thrives on trust, communication, and a unified vision. Together, we explore uncharted territories of creativity, delving deep into the emotions and narratives of each project. Our collaboration extends to the entire creative ensemble, ensuring seamless harmony in every aspect of the shoot. As the hair and makeup team, we serve as indispensable orchestrators within the realm of a photoshoot. We transform a blank canvas into a mesmerizing work of art, drawing inspiration from a multitude of sources. Constantly pushing ourselves to try new techniques and experiment with different styles, we are always evolving as artists. Our collaboration is a celebration of art, beauty, and self-expression, showcasing the power of teamwork and the endless possibilities that arise when visionaries come together. After two decades of fruitful collaboration, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to sit down with celebrity hairstylist Keith Carpenter. Today, I am excited to delve into his expertise by asking a few thought-provoking questions.

How do you adapt your hairstyling techniques for location shoots compared to studio?

Surrender control, I work with the elements.
