That time I pretended to be a model.

My BFF, Joy, is in hair design school at the Aveda Institute of Portland.  In fact, she graduates in a matter of days!  About two months ago she needed to present her senior project which was create a hairstyle and have her model photographed and can you believe Joy asked little old me to be her model?!  Of course I said yes, because I’ve always wanted to put what I’ve learned on ANTM to good use.

I was pretty nervous when it came time to actually be in front of the camera I was feeling pretty shaky/nervous/panicky.  I pretended Jay Manuel was there giving me direction and I thought to myself What would Tyra do?  hair_03Me and eyebrows just don’t mix.hair_01hair_02It feels really weird to be throwing all these pictures of myself up here but I’m making myself do it.  Sharing these with the world is a little out of my comfort zone but I’m doing it anyway, because why the hell not?  So here you go world!  My first (And probably last.  I belong behind the camera.) modeling gig.

Thank you Joy for asking me to be your model and making me prettyprettypretty!

  1. Erin,
    Joy did a great job not only on the hairstyle, but also of the makeup. I used to do makeup back in the ’70s when I worked for a beauty supply distributor here in LA and took many Color Me Beautiful classes to teach the techniques to the salons I used to call on. Excellent job. She made you look like a porcelain doll. Absolutely stunning.
