You simply CANNOT have a Halloween haunted fashion show without scary good hair and makeup. Kelly loved Halloween for this very reason. Every year she got so excited, letting her imagination go to weird, unexplored places in order to create breathtaking, shocking, out-of-this world looks for herself, for her son, and for her friends on this most beloved holiday.
Here are just a couple of my favorite Halloween looks she created for me over the years.
For Friscovania, we’ve amassed some of Kelly’s colleagues and friends who happen to be some of the best hair and makeup artists in the biz. They’re going to put together a show that would make our friend proud and so very, very happy.
Please say hello to the hair and makeup teams of Friscovania!
