The Big Reveal

The final entry in regards to my friend and her total makeover:  Kara Lee had a great makeover experience with the Oprah team.  The show airs in Arizona on May 12 at 3:00.  It's nice to see a friend get the attention she deserves.  As I said earlier, her original hair inspired a jewelry line called "Curly Girlz".  She wore a piece during her makeover and also gave the item labeled in an earlier blog to Ms. Winfrey.  If you are interested in owning your own "curly girlz" they are available at Arizona Handmade; Fire on the Mountain.

Kara's hair was done by Ken Paves.  Designer clothes, shoes and bag by Diane von Furstenberg.

Oprah Winfrey and Kara's Hair

This blog entry can only be classified as a point of personal privelage. I have a great, grand friend Kara who has hair that all her life could be called "unruly". So my friend Kara, long story short, will be on the Oprah show for a big makeover. She flies out May 3 for 4 days in Chicago with makeover and taping scheduled.

The side story to this very fun adventure my friend gets to participate in is this: as an artist you can't help but be inspired by Kara's hair. I designed a pendant line called "Curly Girlz" to remember Kara's hair. It's crazy. It's curly. It's a great head of hair worhty of fine art.
