Last month I served as a model for my old school Aso College Group students. Students had seen in a competition from the United States to train foreign to style hair. When I was contacted by a person working at my school, I immediately accepted. We were 3 foreign girls (4 the following week) expecting to have our hair done. In fact we were treated to makeup, a dress session and we have to carry a huge and heavy wig. All that in only 3 hours !
We all were send to different teams and each style was really different. I was luck enough to be sent to the team who did the style that I prefered : something between Pretty Cure and KyaryPamyu Pamyu with pink, white, glitters and hearts. I became a real magical girl... for few hours!
My team consisted of 3 people and is well distributed work. Students who did my makeup was really talented, skilled, fast and accurate. I found the result very nice despite the very dark foundation she put on my face . This was also my first experience with false eyelashes. I had a little trouble getting used to ( and I am sure to never wear that again) but they were pretty, with strass and colors.
On the hairstyle side, the two students had a little more trouble, especially on the first day because the wig kept to leaned. They have improved the following week, capping me a bonnet which helped secure the whole thing.
I was also asked to put very long and very beautiful nails. They have been entirely made the by students. Impressive !
The picture above is the wig on the first day . The following week, the students sophisticated it with hearts fabric. I would loved to take pictures with it but due to time constraints it was not possible (and I wore my own clothes underneath) .
It was a very fun and rewarding experience. I could discover a world which I didn't know at all and which I never thought about it. It was also a human encounter as I could chat with students and teachers. I even have even been able to find a student who did my hair at the ASO48 live last year.
I don' know if I can't do modeling job again but as a former student (although a different course) , I loved being able to help juniors. And good news, 2 teams placed 3rd and 4th in the competition !
