Can Wavy Or Curly Hair Be Tamed? With Guest Author Kim Ferry

Can Wavy Or Curly Hair Be Tamed? With Guest Author Kim Ferry

We wanted to know if wavy hair can be tamed, so we asked our friend, celebrity hairstylist for film and television and inventor of the HairFerry Hot Spot, Kim Ferry. You have seen her work on projects like Pretty Little Liars, Faking It, The Office, The Mindy Project, and more. She's been styling Hollywood hair since the early 90's and knows a thing or two about it! You can follow Kim on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and check out the HairFerry Hot Spot on this website!

Art for art's sake...

Art for art's sake...

Forward By Matt Frends

I met Samee through Facebook when I asked my friends for a good local tattoo artist. More than one linked her to the thread. Today, I have a magnificent personalized version of the VJ Day kissing sailor occupying the whole of my inner right forearm thanks to her and her amazing artistic vision and execution. I find it so interesting and awesome that she is able to convey her artistic abilities in both makeup and tattoos, and asked her to blog about it. I hope you enjoy!

When Giving Is Golden: Social Responsibility as Artists

When Giving Is Golden: Social Responsibility as Artists

Full disclosure: Matt made the horrible mistake of giving me my own login information to post blog entries. No, you are not reading this wrong, and no, I did not hack the website...he wouldn't give me credit for being that smart any way. He just simply had a severe lapse of judgement and decided momentarily that I may have something useful to add. With that being said, there may or may not be posts entitled 'I Hate Matt and So Should You', this is not propaganda paid for by the U.S. government but rather scientifically backed information. Seriously, though, I look forward to writing on here and making Matt's life spiral out of control by driving him nuts.

Recently I have seen a lot of discussions on social media about giving back as a Makeup Artist or Hair Stylist and I felt it was time to finally have an open dialogue regarding when we should or should not participate. For the five years I have been working as a freelance artist, I have participated in somewhere around 4-5 unpaid or low paying events/jobs that I felt would make a difference. But this isn't about my career, it's about yours and when you should say 'yes' or 'no'.
