Studio Session: Oakleigh

Curated by Salon San Carlos, this styled shoot was an innovative collaboration between our in-house artists and a photographer. Using an array of backdrops in an indoor environment, we used a studio setting to explore new creative avenues. Through this, the team blended salon expertise with the artistic vision of our photographer to develop a collection of unique images that merged style and artistry.


We wanted to play into the softer, natural lighting that cascaded into the studio while shooting with Oakleigh. Each model brought a couple of different looks to the table throughout the shoot for a variety of content aesthetics. We took it a step further by changing out green and white backdrops and wardrobe to enhance the glow of the natural light.


Oakleigh’s hair was cut into a French-inspired bob with a short fringe. Wanting to add dimension to her existing hair color, we opted to incorporate subtle highlights throughout that worked nicely in the natural light of this studio setting.
