COVID Rest and Come together

Hello, my starlings! We haven’t posted for a minute. But we are OK! Angel just needed some time to reseed, even the moon wanes. And that’s OK! A star that burns too hot will burn itself out very quickly. Sustained burn requires rest. Just like chemical processing, low...

Gallery of Galleries

Here they are, the shots, the pics, the proof. I'm not the best photographer, I'm getting better though.

Sometimes I get a model or two, and trust me those are obvious. But mostly I post pics of real people in the place they were done, not just models with perfect hair in front of a perfect backdrop. Here, you will find work on a menagerie of stars. Stars with fine hair, thick hair, pin straight, perfectly coiled, wavy and unruly. Stars with wrinkles, tired eyes, scars, freckles, makeup on and off. Young and cheerfully chubby, perfectly aged and willowy thin, macho shes, and femme hes I got 'em all. I love them, every. single. one.

You won't find any fancy editing here. I might correct exposure or balance. And I may have smudged a pimple or two... cuz I'm a nice person.

I came in for a vivid color and was beyond impressed with the quality of the work and the integrity of the color. The vibrancy of the color was just unreal! I love it! Angel is the go-to stylist for amazing hair color!
