THE BARBER SHOP

Please enjoy this fun commercial spot shot in Brooklyn for US OPEN 2017.  Eurosport and John McEnroe employed wigmaker Amanda Miller to create hair looks from 4 'Tennis Greats' - our favorite is definitely the vintage John.  

 

'Spending two days on set with Mr. McEnroe, my father's all time hero, was a riot!  Fiat Lux put together a clean, efficient shoot.  I'm super proud of the results.' - Amanda

When producer Amy Lo first wrote to me about the project late last year sharing some of Christina's earlier work, my heart melted at THE QUEEN.  Watch Christina's short film now.  Its joyous and lovely and I promise you will be better off for it!
