Deandri // Infiniti Fishtail Rope Braid
This week I’m rushing to prepare for my friend’s wedding and a big trip home for my cousin’s wedding! And while it’s easy to let the photos do the talking (especially when they’re this great) I wanted to spend some time talking about how amazing the team was for this shoot!
It’s funny how the shoot started with the model Caylie announcing how she was done modeling but wanted to shoot for the photographer, my dear friend Colleen O’Brien! We were so lucky to have her because as soon as she was vibing to Beyonce during prep she was ready to slay! Caylie is wearing a two piece suspender suit by Deandri. It’s a one-of-a-kind piece and I certainly like to think so considering it’s white amongst all their black clothing. Deandri’s full swim line will be launching in spring of next year and we were so excited to try out one of their sample pieces! While initially the suit looks a little bizarre as two separate pieces, together is creates a beautiful almost one-piece feel and each piece completes each other. I especially loved the suspender snaps the detail they bring.
The braid for this look was done by insanely talented Cherilyn Williams of Nine Zero One salon in Beverly Hills, CA. It’s a high pony tail with an infinity into fishtail braid with tons of texture, just the way we like it! It’s funny to admit as a stylist and full-time hair braider I didn’t know how to do an infinity braid until now. So it was amazing to learn and watch from someone so talented! Cherilyn used all Unite product to create texture in this braid. The amazing red lip and makeup was done by makeup artist Abella Bala of No Makeup! Keep a lookout for what No Makeup is going to create in the coming year, I can’t wait to be a part of it.
