Its been quite some time since we updated our website photos and I have to admit, it shows! So we finally got our act together after 8 years and arranged for another shoot to brighten up our slide show on our site.
We asked our last photographer Rob (Robert Herrick) if he would be interested in helping us out again and to our delight he was up for it. Since our last shoot Rob has become quite a’ hot shot’ photographer so we were honored when he said he enjoyed the last one so much that we could count him in again.
We asked all 10 of our stylists at Dekko to participate to help find models and to donate haircuts and color time, we decided to use as many clients as possible instead of going out hiring professional models which turned out to be the best idea because Dekko’s clients ROCK! Most of the stylists/salon support team came together and we came up with 10 models to show some salon looks that clients could relate to.
Elaine (Elaine Fujii) the make up artist which we worked with did some fabulous looks with the help of Wendi our receptionist when the other make up artist dropped out. Considering she had so many models to do on her own, we want to give her a big shout out for being such a sport.
All in all, the day turned out to be a really enjoyable smooth shoot, one of the smoothest I’ve ever been on in fact, apart from the couple of unexpected snafu’s everything went as planned and I can honestly say the people who took part that day had a fab time, so a huge Thanks to the stylists who came and of course to Wendi, Sarah and Zoie, our salon support who were great and worked the 12 hour day without a moan or groan. (well maybe just one)
This turned out to be a day that showed how teamwork really should be, with everyone helping each other with the models and I must say I was very pleased with it all. Anyway, So I’d like to share some fun pictures of behind the scenes on the day and the prep time.Stay tuned for when the real pics will be revealed to all…
