Golden Glam

Jayme Mees, along with guest Tina Voss of the Viva Voce Salon, Hudson, Wisconsin, created a finish she refers to as “Golden Glam.” “Elegance is not to be noticed, it’s about being remembered,” Mees says. Mees curled the hair with a ¾-inch Hot Tools curling iron and set other pieces using the Beauty & Pin Ups Pin Up iron. The middle section was curled with the Sam Villa TexturIron crimping iron. The base was then teased for volume. “We wanted big and glamorous,” Mees says. “And watching everyone else here at the session inspired us. It made us do a better job.” Hair: Jayme Mees and Tina Voss | Irons: Hot Tools, Beauty & Pin Ups, Sam Villa | Fashion: Top Shop

The artists attending MODERN’s most recent Artist Session photoshoot workshop fell naturally into two hair design groups: Half chose to go extreme (to be featured in an upcoming issue) while the other half created sophisticated, elegant designs perfect for any red-carpet event. The images in this collective feature highlights those artists and those looks.
