Splish, splash I was taking a bath…..

Bath tubs are brilliant and that’s a fact!

From their familiar oval shapes and decorative accessories shiny taps, vintage legs, vanillary-cream colourings and then there’s the fact that you can fill them up with bubbles, petals even glitter! Heck why stop at just that?

Pure bliss springs to mind with the mere thought of them!

And then there’s bathtubs used as fashion props and well let’s face it… how could you not appreciate the beauty these two references bring out of each other?

With an almost melancholy yet romantic feel, images can either appear light hearted or subtly sad. It’s a wonderful contradiction that works every time!

Yes, yes…bath tubs are brilliant and that’s a fact!

Quentin Jones…..

Fashion film director, model, illustrator, painter and Cambridge Philosophy graduate, one has to ask…is there anything Quentin Jones can’t do?

She has already directed a film for Chanel and Victoria Beckham not to mention a captivating and very intriguing installation for Dark Room.

 There is a repetition in theme seen throughout Quentin’s work- wit, irreverence and a cool way with cutting things up: she’s big on collage, montage, cats and Disney references – and she has a sharp take on the female form.

And frankly we here at The Face London find her vision and take on fashion beautifully modernised and refreshing.

Take a look at some of the really, really, ridiculously good looking wunderkind’s mixed media illustrations…..it’s hard not to want to be her for the day!

A rising star that is as beautiful and real as her work.

Quentin Jone’s we salute you, wonder-girl!

Hairspiration….

It’s been a long build up for this coming weekend and there is a lot of excitement in the air and streets of London.

We thought in honor of the Royals this weekend why not focus our “hairspiration” on the very current and breathtaking style that is the “Princess wave”along with the prefect “Princess pony tail.”

We had a few requests for this look this week and we fell “head-of-hair over heels” for it.

Next time you’re in our studio be sure to ask our winning beauty team for the latest hair and makeup trends to amplify your look!

enjoy!

Photo of the week….

I’m not too sure whether it’s the beautiful sunshine we’ve experienced this week or if it was just down to luck of the draw but this week our clients all seemed like pro’s!

As if they had been doing this for years natural born models ,so we thought it best to ask….turns out 9 out of 10 had never done modeling before and were all a touch nervous about having their picture taken.

For what reason you might ask?  And we agree.

Take a look at the ever beautiful and sweet Marina Ruiz, this lovely lady couldn’t take a bad picture if she tried.

We love this week’s photo of the week and how it perfectly sums up summer.

We hope you love your pictures as much as we do, Marina.
