Curly vs. Straight

The Curly Versus Straight Project is a collection of photos to showcase the extremes in hair texture as well as demonstrate how hairstyles can change a persons image. There are three parts to each shoot: Curly, Straight, and the Bonus Round. For the Curly part, I am enhancing the models natural wave or curl. During the Straight part, I am smoothing out the models hair to be as flat as possible. The Bonus Round is where each individual team can be creative. The Bonus Round is a chance to try something new and have fun!

Each shoot will have a different photographer, make-up artist, model, and Bonus Round. If you are interested in participating in this project, please contact me at
