I just finished working on actress Francelli Chapman’s hair and makeup for her performance on stage tonight in Blues for Mister Charlie here in NYC. The show will be running through July, and Francelli has the female lead; The role is quite demanding and the plot is based on a true story that takes place in 1955; she plays a young student in the south that falls in love and goes through an incredible, emotional story.
To create Francelli’s character’s look, I dug inspiration from popular women’s hairstyles in the 50’s and added a touch of sophistication and romance to it. Makeup was natural and I used neutral tones with subtle highlights and a touch of rosy colors to tie in with the sophistication and romantic feel that I wanted to give her.
