beautiful warrior



Stylish Chicagoans celebrated eDrop-Off‘s 10th Anniversary in collaboration with the pop-up shop launch party for Silhouette, a fragrance by Christian Siriano, hosted by the designer and eDrop-Off founder Corri McFadden at Chicago’s famed Waldorf Astoria.  Along with fragrance and clothing sales, the event featured models wearing gowns by Siriano, a quick-change into looks from The Collection by eDrop-Off, the newly launched retail concept by the designer consignment store, and hair designed by yours truly.

The inspiration behind the hair was to create a strong, but feminine, look to offset the couture gowns that the models were wearing the first half of the evening.  The mohawk silhouette accentuated the models’ features, while the braids maintained a air of softness to ultimately create the ‘warrior princess’ look that you see below.


The second half of the event, the models changed into ready-to-wear looks from The Collection by eDrop-Off, and I switched up the hair by incorporating wigs of bobs in varying lengths to give the looks a more street style appeal.

the pixie

A pixie is a timeless and iconic haircut.  What makes each one special?  Having the right artist that understands face shape to accentuate the individual’s features, and tailor it to their personality.

Launchpad Magazine recently put together a slideshow, Pixie-Perfect: 10 Best Pixie Haircuts of All Time.  I was inspired by this article and selected a few of my favorites to highlight below.
