Tips for Walking the Runway! Fashion Week 2015

This past weekend I was asked to walk for Yas Couture at Phoenix Fashion Week. 
Arrival at 2p - Show at 10p

Yes, 8 hours of hair, makeup and fittings for this one single look. This is the life of a model.

One of my friends commented that the stage looks really slippery and the shoes look very high - a combination that is a little scary for most. Add to that a very tight and heavy dress ... obviously the time to pull out all the model tricks for a flawless show. 

I can tell you that you can practice your walk all day long but the real secret ... is in the shoes. 


  • Choose a size smaller and/or add the shoe insets that tighten the fit so you won't step out of one on stage

  • Scuff up the bottom of your shoes and before going on stage spray hair spray on the soles for holding power.

  • When walking you plant securely each step at the ball of your foot. One foot directly in front of the other like walking a straight line.

Best Halo Type Extensions Review Comparison - Model's cheat for Good Hair!

Modeling requires good hair! 
The secret ... Hidden Crown Extensions.

So many models, actresses and celebrities wear hair extensions, and the reason I love Hidden Crown Hair Extensions is because they go in less than a minute and do not damage your hair because there are no clips, no glue and no tape. The weight of your own hair pulled over top keeps them securely in place. 

Not only are these extensions by far the easiest to use ... they are the safest and per gram the least expensive. 100% real REMY human hair. Plus they are double drawn ... very Few companies offer this type of hair! It means that the hair is as thick at the top as it is at the ends. Hair as it grows gets thinner at the ends, but when wearing extensions you want the fullest and thickest hair possible. Hidden Crown is it and I wear mine for all my modeling shoots like this picture above. Color #2, darkest brown.

Long. Longer. Longest
12 inch, 16 inch, 20 inch Hidden Crown Hair

The hottest trending nail polish that will give you that gel manicure technology at home without any Lights to activate it. We love gel manicures because they last a long time, but they are expensive, time consuming and a pain to get off requiring another trip to the salon. Miracle Gel is a 2 step process - polish and top coat and can be removed with standard nail polish remover. Genius!
