Premiere Beauty Show 2018 was held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. All the best hairstylists in the world come together for one of the biggest hair shows in the world with over 57,000 people attending to create some of the best hairstyles all year!
This year, I was on the Capture Crew for Matrix Hair as a photographer for the event. I was lucky enough to work with a few of the best hairstylists in the world including a few of my favorites Mustafa Avci, Chrystopher Benson, Philip Wolff, Danielle Keasling, Nick Stenson, Daniel Roldan, HairGod Zito and Dilek Onur-Taylor.

I shot the standard backstage and on stage photos but my absolute favorite was being able to take them upstairs to get some amazing fashion and beauty shots! Photography at a convention center is notoriously tricky – the lighting is some of the worst ANYWHERE but I’m like a moth – I’m drawn to the light. I hunted down this amazing spot with floor to ceiling windows and was able to shoot all natural light, my favorite! It was a stark change from the flash and low light that I was getting backstage but we made magic happen to really show off the best hairstyles.
It’s funny, I started with studio photography, opposite to most photographers. Mainly because I loved beauty photography so much but I find myself doing more and more event photography with a beauty twist and I am LOVING it! I still love my beauty dish but there’s nothing better than whimsical natural light photography.
I can’t express how much I loved working with Matrix and how fantastic it was to work with so many like-minded, creative and inspiring people. Even though I had worked with Matrix in the past and I knew many of the models and styling team, it was my first “official” time working actually working with them. It’s always intimidating walking into a group that has been working together for so long but they were so welcoming! We all clicked right off the bat!
In fact, we clicked so much that I’ll be doing photography for Matrix at the Behind the Chair Award Show in San Antonio, Texas in August! Comment below if I will see you there!
I worked with some of the best hairstylists in the industry and needless to say, the hairstyles were insane! Tell me your favorite in the comments!
Personally, I’m really loving the pastel and vivid hair color trends because everyone needs a bit of color in their life. More importantly, who doesn’t love color?
I mean seriously.. could they be more stunning?
These hairstylists are nothing short of creative visionaries! They created some of the best hairstyles I’ve ever seen and I can’t believe I got a chance to photograph them! Our photos from Premiere Beauty Show have been shared by BehindtheChair, American Salon, Estetica Magazine, Matrix and
It seriously was the best hair show and I can’t wait until the next show.
Stay tuned for photos from Day 2!
