Barbizon of Akron Grad Gets Another Shoot Under His Belt!

Barbizon of Akron Graduate and now listed model with Pro-Model & Talent Management Ryan Hairston was selected from a pool of kids to do a shoot for Children’s Hospital in Akron.

This wasn’t Ryan’s first photoshoot and that was apparent as the client reported back that Ryan was super easy to work with and really knew what he was doing on set.

Ryan has worked with clients like Dick's Sporting Goods in the past in which he was featured in their magalog and as a life sized version of himself on some of their in-store signage.

Ryan’s mom, Tanisha, said Ryan had a great time at the shoot and was surprised how at ease her son was in front of the camera, thanks to his extensive training at Barbizon of Akron.

What's Trending for Spring and Summer 2012 in Fashion!


Put some spring in your step with 2012’s top fashion trends for the spring and summer season! Try out any of these three new fashion trends for a fresh, bold new look:

Look One: Color Blocking
Essentially, color blocking is a technique where in creating a garment the designers sew together multiple types of fabric in multiple types of bold colors in pieces - creating one brilliant piece! Color blocking has been around for ages but is now making its way back onto the runways. Choose a dress made up of this color blocking technique and you’re going to get a lot of bang for your buck, not to mention turn a lot of heads.

Look Two: Super Bold Prints
Bold prints have been knocking out the runways recently. For a knock out look of your own, try a pair of bold/solid colored skinnies with a bold printed lite jacket or blouse. Think bold, brightly colored floral’ s and graphics. If you’re feeling extra bold, switch it up and pair a solid colored top with boldly printed skinny jeans!

Look Three: Neon, Neon, Neon
As you can see, it’s all about boldness and bright colors right now. Well the biggest color trend of the season is neon. Yes, neon, like 80’s neon. You can already see this trend seeping into the displays at malls near you. Enriching your wardrobe with these neon colors will not only have you looking like you’re ready for summer - but you’ll feel it too. Whether it be a great neon colored top, purse, blazer or even a pair of heels, you can’t help but smile while wearing this stand out color - it’s an instant wow-factor.

Blocks of color, bold prints or bright neon, they all are back in full force and aren’t giving up their tight grip on what’s trending in fashion for spring and summer 2012. Utilizing any of these fashion trends this year is going to make you stand out in a crowd so start stocking up that wardrobe now!
