Melbourne hair and makeup artist Kristy Bassett shares her tips, inspiration and latest work

Rockabilly with the Chevy

This Rockabilly photo shoot was a collaboration with Adelaide photographer Julia Thomas. We had so much fun with the concept and art direction. We were inspired by the classic 1950s Rockabilly style, love for vintage hair and makeup, vintage clothing and tattoos.
