Beauty lighting

I was contacted by a hair stylist who wanted to have images of before/after installation of hair extensions. She took the before shots herself (not seen here) and we met in my studio after she already put the hair extensions in, all she had left to do was style them a little so they looked good for the photo shoot. This was not a fashion shoot, she didn't want anything crazy, just a nice example of how the hair will look for potential clients.
I took a "run n gun" footage of the setup so you can see how the models were lit.

All the light heads (excluding the background light) and the power packs (I'm using 2, the second one is behind the backdrop) are Dynalite.
Will be happy to answer any questions you might have :)

While we did a makeup/hair change I wanted to test the Igus slider so I quickly through a shimmery fabric behind the model, moved the lights around and put my Canon 5D2 to work, keep in mind this was NOT a video shoot, that would be a whole other animal!

Both artists and models were terrific, would absolutely recommend them!
