Beauty In Print


The Livid Magazine summer #26 issue is out and I’m so glad to finally be able to share. I did this shoot over a year ago with NYC fashion & beauty photographer Joseph Cartright.

The article entitled “Ombré Structures” illustrates amazing hair color blends and skills created by Ashley. A finalist for the North American Hairstylist Awards (NAHA) 2019 in the hair color category. By Professional Beauty Association (PBA).

With the creative direction from the photographer, the dark body makeup in transforming all of the models to have the same tone, with a pop of color on the face for eyes and lips. An avant-garde way to keep the focus on the hair by stylist and colorist Ashley Stewart Wright.
