Behind the scenes at the hair show in the world Trade Centre

YH Studios DXB supported @hairsalonuae at the amazing hair show on the 15th May at the World Trade Centre.

Khaled Bou Kamel owner of, “The Hair Salon” in the Marriott Hotel in the Courtyard, Green Community who is the most stylish, creative and flamboyant hairdresser with his scissors, owned the stage with his team when he was creating and displaying his talents to the eagerly awaited audience.

In preparation of his models The Lipstick Make Up Institute did what they do best and made them look alive, fresh and cool as they graced the stage with the boys. They are stylish in their attitude, appearance and methods.

Not all the models that we did the make up for were getting their hair cut but were walking on stage to entertain and showcase the skills of Mr. Bou Kamel.

Here are a few shots of the kind of high hairstyles that were showcased by the beautiful models on the day.

Classy makeup and such cool hair

It was just a fabulous show.

The team looked so cool and worked together like a dream!








The whole day was about hair and as the models got ready I took them away for a few seconds and managed to get a few shots of them with the beautiful make up, hair then the photography.

Maybe we should all work together all the time. Sounds like a plan to me. Come and get your hair cut and styled by The Hair Salon, make up applied by The Lipstick Make Up Institute then photographed by YH StudiosDXB.

Sounds like a plan to me!!!

Lets do it guys!!

A new concept to hit Dubai, watch this space.


Part 4 of Tips & Tricks of studio lighting techniques/ Split lighting

Split Lighting

Split lighting occurs when the key light illuminates only half the face. It is an ideal slimming light. It can be used to narrow a wide face or nose. It can also be used with a weak fill to hide facial irregularities. For a highly dramatic effect, split lighting can be used with no fill.

For me this is my favourite kind of lighting because its so effective, mysterious and you can create any kind of mood you like. Its not only flattering but can create an essence in a shot that the photographer and the model have between them.

There is always a bond between the photographer and the  model and this is what creates the most effective shots and that feeling pours out with the passion a photographer has inside and if you connect with him/her you will get the most amazing shots ever!

So the motto is:, always be kind to your photographer. They might be a bit weird at times but they are just thinking!!!!
