On Monday Jake, our friend Tadd and I filmed this video. Tadd is a scientist and has this crazy camera that films 1,000 frames per second (or something. that’s what i overheard them saying), so you can see every little detail of the shot. Usually Tadd films bullets being shot under water so that he can study the fluid dynamics (also what i overheard) and sciency things of that sort, but we decided to focus on hair for the night!

Here is what we came up with!

    THIS IS SO COOL! I love the progression of your facial expressions when your whipping your hair back and forth (hey, that’s a song!). And the way your hair forms a perfect mohwak as it whips up and down…SOOOOOO freaking cool!!! Also, it looked like a lot of fun to dunk your head in a bucket.

  2. Rae Says:

    This is SO FREAKING COOL! My favorite part is the second time you stretch out the curl and let it bounce back. Your hair looks so damn shiny and soft, I just want to get my hands all up in it. (Does that sound weird??)
    Awesome work you guys. Loved it. I didn’t want the video to end.

    @berta: thank you! I really agree. i’ve watched it several times and i just keep thinking how lucky of me to be able to be in a video like this. the camera itself is extremely expensive (over 1,500$ a day to rent) and it felt like such a great opportunity to make something like this! once in a lifetime, really!

    You look like Ariel! Kenzie and I used to whip our hair like that at the pool when we were little. I like to think we looked as amazing as you did in this awesome video. I loved the bouncy curl and the bang trim shot with all the little hairs flying about. I loved it!

    This is awesome. It’s like hair porn… you know, if you roll like that.

  16. ellen patton Says:

    Amazingly cool. But everything Tadd does is cool. :)

  17. Kerry W Says:

    That’s awesome! My favourite part is where you pull the curl and it bounces back like a spring. Your hair looks so shiny and awesome in that shot! How did you curl it? Curling iron or straightner?

  18. Shannon Says:

    As someone with a huge head, I’m a little jealous you can stick your head in a bucket…and not get stuck. :)

  19. Adair Says:

    I LOVED watching the shears cut your hair. I think it would be fantastic to see more slow motion shots of dry cutting.

  20. Carol Says:

    Oh! So! Awesome! I wish I could slow motion some moments in life like this. Baby’s first smile, that first kiss, my daughter doing her first pirouette…
