Louise Burgess wins a day with Zoe Irwin
Our Spotlight winner Louise Burgess won a photoshoot with her idol Zoe Irwin. Here she shares her experience from the day!
"Finally, the day had come to claim my ghd spotlight prize. It was definitely worth the wait! The shoot was in East London on a sunny Sunday with a 10.00 am call-time. Prior to the shoot I’d received my call sheet which included images of the models and references for the story, which gave me the opportunity to research the brief. I researched online for ideas and inspiration. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to meet ghd UK brand ambassador and session stylist Zoe Irwin."
The day was a dream come true, I felt very honoured and learnt so much! Thanks to Zoe Irwin and everyone at ghd for such a memorable experience!
"After a quick briefing, we got going straight-away. I worked closely with Zoe, prepping the hair, colour matching extensions and sewing them to create overall thickness. We curled the hair with the ghd IV mini styler and pinned to set. We dressed the hair out, creating huge amounts of volume and adding more hair to keep the shape. It was beautiful, powerful and very feminine. On our male model's hair we went for a complete contrast. We gave him a smooth blow out, creating volume from the front and finishing with a light shine wax. The day was such a whirlwind, I can't wait to see the finished looks!"
