The day started with a visit to Primarily Hair in La Habra California for hair and makeup services. Primarily Hair was a contest sponsor and they opened the salon for just our group that morning. We were welcomed by their smiling staff with breakfast and a big Congratulations sign for our winners. Make Up Artist Gianna Collica then went to the photo shoot location to take care of make up and hair touch ups for the day. Gianna is a veteran of many photo shoots and is always a huge help in keeping things organized. Photography for the photo shoot was by contest sponsor, Painted Pinups Photography. Painted Pinups specializes in Pin Up style photography but they also do some amazing marketing and product photography for us on our shoots. Also taking part in this photo shoot were Metal Sanaz, the gorgeous lady of heavy metal music and our good friend Heath who has modeled for us in the past. Heath was on double duty as he was also shooting video for us as his company HMC Creative does some killer videos.  We just started going through the photos from the shoot and there are some really gorgeous shots. We look forward to getting them up on our site as we add the new styles from the photo shoot onto the web site over the next several weeks.

Thanks again to all of our Contest Sponsors and the Contest Winners for making this a great event. We look forward to doing more contests in the future.
