Max Made



Charming, beautiful and always ready with a smile – the 29-year-old actress (and new mother) Jodi Anasta puts her acting skills to the test, channeling style icons Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, & Elle Macpherson in an intimate MAXMADE EXCLUSIVE shoot and interview for our December cover story.

Shot on location at The Darling Hotel, Anasta plays the character of a screen siren playing out the intimate moments she has in the bathroom. Put her in front of a camera and every frame is a moment. With an understated sense of confidence, and a humour that I can only be describe as nothing less than contagious – the extraordinary beauty that is Jodi Anasta tackles each shot in true style and grace, proving she is at home in the spotlight.

Hair Notes
Step 1; To build volume and protect Jodi’s hair I sprayed each section with Kérastase Resistance Volumeifique Volume Expansions Spray before blowdrying using Shu Uemura’s Paddle brush.
Step 2; Using the largest size wand of the H2D Curlng Wand x3, I tonged and pinned Jodi’s hair in a old-school style set. To give hold and a delicate sheen I sprayed each section with Kérastase Laque Niore Hair Spray.
Step 3; To build that extra volume through the roots and give it a little grip and hold through the mid-lengths, I dusted Shu Uemura Volume Maker & Texture Powder through before brushing out my set and styling.
To Finish; I used Shu Uemura’s Touch of Gloss Brilliant Melt-In Wax to remove any un-wanted fly-aways without weighing the hair down and removing any shape.
