Unortho­dox beauty

Practical Photography (UK) - - Beyond The Lens - by Kai Wan

I’ve been hair­dress­ing for over 30 years, but pho­tog­ra­phy has been part of my life for even longer. I’m self-taught, through books and read­ing PP. This im­age was shot for the Fel­low­ship for Bri­tish Hair­dress­ing as part of a col­lec­tion named Asy­lum. The heat in the stu­dio was un­bear­able on this day – the liq­uid gold make-up had to be ap­plied at the last minute and I had to get the shot within the first few frames, be­fore it be­gan to melt!
