Arriving on set of the Laura Ashley Summer 2012 shoot, we greeted one very lovely and essential lady to our crew—makeup artist and hair and fashion stylist Jami Svay. You could easily argue this talented beauty belongs in front of the camera but by trade she is the skilled artist who makes our Laura Ashley models look so fresh and beautiful.

We had a chance to chat with Jami while she worked (secretly hoping to steal a few expert tips).
Laura Ashley: What is the direction for the Laura Ashley look?
Jami: For Laura Ashley it’s always fresh, clean and natural. Styling from hair and makeup to fashion and accessories is simple, soft and feminine. Everyday chic.
Laura Ashley: What’s the secret behind those lovely locks?
Jami: I gave our model loose curls by simply twisting small groups of strands around a one inch curling iron. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray is my go-to product; made with salt water, it’s perfect for achieving a natural looking wave. Work it through damp hair and again post styling for finishing and hold. Remember a little goes a long way.
Laura Ashley: Unfortunately we don’t all have the luxury of a stylist or a lot of time to do our makeup. Can you tell us what’s essential before walking out the door.
Jami: It really is as simple as 1-2-3. Mascara, blush and lip gloss. I’m not loyal to any blush or gloss, but my new favorite mascara is Volum' Express® Falsies by Maybelline.
