This past Sunday, Nival Salon and Spa joined forces with DC’s top figures of fashion to put together our first ever editorial photoshoot on behalf of the salon. After weeks of preparing for the big day, over 24 models, colorists, hair stylists, wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, photographers, and creative directors, all gathered in Georgetown at Francis Scott Key Park after 5 hours of work in the salon for a total of a 9 hour shooting day. Check out some of the snapshots we took!

For this project, we were inspired by organic versus urban themes–you can see our visual board on pinterest. You’ll find our final product in our ads in Capitol File, DC Modern Luxury, the Georgetowner, and more as well as in our materials in the Nival throughout the year. Until then, check out the behind-the-scenes footage
