After meeting with my Generation NOW model, it got me feeling really inspired and prompted me to look back through some of the general research I have already done. After going up to London for the Trend Vision show, I have been a little bit obsessed with the new Spring/ Summer trend for 2016 Molten Eclaille. Feel like I’m constantly looking through magazines and looking out for traces of it in the media. This is why I am going to use this as my inspiration for my Generation NOW entry.
I thought I would share some of the Molten Eclaille inspiration I have taken from Pinterest (one of my favourite pass times).
So there it is, just a very quick post. Its more for me really to, gather my thoughts and calm my excitement. Thank you for indulging in my ramblings.
Here are a few little teaser shots from my trend vision shoot. I don’t want to give away too much before I know if I had got through to the next round.
Everything went to plan so I was chuffed with that. I have an amazing team helping me with everything. Just can’t shake the feeling that I’ll be letting everyone down if I don’t get through. I don’t think that I have wanted anything more!
So fingers crossed for regional heats! I’ll keep you all posted on the shoot photos nearer the time! Exiting!

Putting colour to hair.
After doing all my planing, scrolling through the internet and going through endless magazines, making mood boards and trying to get all my ideas together. It was strange to be then stood I front of my model ready to get on and do it. I felt like looking at a blank piece of paper. I thought the best thing to do was just take a deep breath and start…
I am so pleased with my model, she has amazing bone structure and completely virgin hair. Which meant that I could do pretty much do anything, (I found this a bit intimidating). I started with the cut and, very slowly worked my way onto the colour. Half working to a plan and half improvising. I found everything I was doing very exciting because it was all very much to my taste. When I was up in London and the amazing team were talking through the spring/ summer trend for 2015, I felt a real pang of excitement! I thought, “this is right up my street”. This makes it equally easy and hard to come up with ideas. I really didn’t want to put too many of my ideas into the style and over do it, so I guess that is what I found the hardest, raining myself in.
Over all I’m pleased with the look, but I will tweeking a few things before the shoot on Sunday. If it was up to me then I would never stop adjusting little pieces. I’m quite critical of everything I do, especially something so creative and challenging.
I would like to say that I will be able to sleep properly once the photos have been taken on Sunday, but I think I’ll have to wait till the letter arrives saying yes or no. In the mean time, I’ll just enjoy that constant hum of excitement…
The first competition I entered was Trend Vision 2013. Looking back there was so much I learnt from entering. So pleased that I did enter even though I had only just passed my NVQ Level 2, and wasn’t really ready. I learnt that I needed to be more organised and prepared. There is a lot to think about when entering a competition like Trend Vision because you are responsible for the whole look. The makeup and clothing as well as the hair. This is something I don’t that I completely took on. I also don’t think I thought enough about the head shot. You can only enter one image and my head shot didn’t do the whole style justice.
Although I am really proud of the images that I came away with, there is a lot that I would do differently.
I look forward to entering again this year taking onboard what I learnt from the first time round, along with 2 years worth of experiences at Mitchell&Millyard.
Exciting! More on this to come…
