Our Cosmetology School Teamed Up With Nonprofit Modeling Agency For Mountaintop Photoshoot

Photoshoots are the best. Inside, outdoors, editorial, avant-garde... As long as there's hair and makeup to be done, count us in! Earlier this month, instructors and students from our Marietta cosmetology school jumped at the opportunity to work with Elbert Ivory Models, an Atlanta-based nonprofit modeling agency, on a test photoshoot for one of their upcoming modeling competitions.

Behind the Scenes at the Test Photoshoot

While this was a test photoshoot, the professionalism displayed by our students and staff, as well as Elbert and his models, made it feel every bit the real thing! We know the value of photoshoots to our cosmetology school students and their portfolios, which is why we host regular shoots at the academy as part of our cosmetology curriculum and snag opportunities like this one with Elbert Ivory Models. It was such a great experience that we can't wait to repeat!

Check out these pics from behind the scenes (and atop a mountain) at the photoshoot!

We Were All Smiles at the Test Photoshoot

Thanks to the expert hair and makeup looks created for the models, our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy was well represented. Our very own Academy Director Darian Bishop had this to say about the amazing photoshoot opportunity: "Lately, we have had the pleasure of working with Elbert Ivory Models to do several photoshoots, including this one on the top of a mountain! What an amazing partnership that allows our cosmetology school students the opportunity to learn new styling and makeup techniques all while building their portfolio and experience with fashion photography."
