Professional Hair Stylist
Working on a model shoot a few years ago, The Paul Mitchell School sent us Francesca Silverstein. What an amazing find. Francesca has blown us away time and time again. From creating tasteful senior portrait hair, to an 1800’s Victorian bouffant to straight off the runway fashion looks for Fashion’s Night Out in Portsmouth, Francesca never disappoints.
The next time you’re in for a little pampering make sure you ask Francesca about her favorite store in Portsmouth. Hint hint, it has to do with the supernatural, and it’s Nick’s favorite store too!
Here is beautiful Fran.
