The Art Of A Makeover
Fusion of Hair, Makeup with Photography by Ann Marie Walts
Have you ever wanted to sit in the chair of an artistic hairstylist and be brave enough to say “do what you want?”
Of course the makeover T.V. shows, make it look like it happens in 30 minutes, however we know that it takes a beauty team.
My salon is not your ordinary salon because I have been called by friends, family and clients a “swiss army knife”. Everything on this site is what I am capable of providing. (I created the site, too)
Passion for Beautiful Hair, Extensions & Photography
The very unique thing that separates me from other salons is that I am also a photographer.
Many years ago, I was very much inspired by a hairstyle article that I had read. It was about a hairstylist that provided makeovers, and then photographed their work. Boom! Bam! Yes!!!
It was in that moment that I knew that was what I wanted to have happen on a regular basis with my clients.
To date, you will find me on Mass Appeal’s TV show, as a regular guest, providing all sorts of “how to” tips on a variety of beauty topics.
If I am not behind my chair, then you will find me at my photography studio in Chicopee, Mass.
fwantewanted to do, and have dones so ever since.
Fast forward to the present, and you will find me photographing makeovers very often, or simply providing professional photography at my photography studio location.
The beginnings of my passion for photography began in a black & white photography class. I had to learn how to develop film in a darkroom.
Along the way, I spent 10 years teaching hair color for Redken as a hair color educator. I had the awesome opportunities to educate other salons and work “behind the scenes” at countless hair shows.
Since 2008, I have actively worked on High Fashion photo shoots in NYC as an Editorial Manicurist.
Why Hair Extensions?
Hair extensions are so misunderstood.
Do you wish that your hair was simply thicker?
I am so passionate about this service because, as an artist, hair extensions are like having extra fabric.
Several years ago, when I got married, I made all of my own gowns. If you sew, then you know how great it is to have extra fabric.
Not Just For Long Hair
If you have received a bad haircut and think that you have to suffer waiting to grow it out………you are the perfect candidate for hair extensions.
Do you have fine hair? Mousse can only do so much, however adding more hair can really be the answer.
