For the Derby

Alice Ness, an educator and artist in the Washington, DC area, along with her guest Destiny Harmon, spent hours cutting wire into the shape of the brim of a hat and then customized to work for blonde hair. “We taped the edge with taupe, and then added two packs of wefts in, out and around the wire,” Ness says. The model’s natural hair was used at the end. “It’s the ultimate hair hat,” Ness says. For this, her third session, Ness says “I learned that four hands are better than two. Also, mixing different shades of hair gives a better result. These shades not only offer better dimension, but hide flaws.” Fashion: Versus

The hairstylists at the most recent Artist Session, MODERN’s two-day, hands-on photoshoot workshop, created special occasion silhouettes that would work for any bride, bridesmaid, prom, homecoming, red carpet or even the Kentucky Derby. Each artist selected the model, directed  the makeup  finish and chose fashion with “special” in mind. To learn more about Artist Session and how you can shoot with MODERN, visit
