Andrew Fitzsimons Is on Message for The Editorialist
Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists help us put our best feet forward. They highlight our best qualities and help to downplay our less flattering angles. If they do it well, their efforts disappear into flawless ease. But a lot of work goes into making it appear totally natural, and for Andrew Fitzsimons’ latest with The Editorialist, he gives a look behind the curtain. The piece was a feature on makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, but it was Andrew’s hair styling that was crucial to understanding the message.
In the images photographed by Derek Kettela, we get a behind the scenes look at how contouring works. Each layer of color has to be applied before a face is finished and in each photo the models are in varying levels of “readiness.” Since the makeup is in process, it’s Andrew’s styling that tells us where the models are in their development of being ready. Whether it's one model with a polished silky wave and pin straight part (that Andrew has made popular in his frequent work with the Kardashian and Jenner sisters), or a model with a wilder up-do that tells us she’s not quite red carpet ready, Andrew’s hair styling delivers the story we need to know by giving us just the right amount of information with the model’s hair. It’s all about delivering the information we're hungry for, and Andrew is perfectly on message.
