Amy hits the Playboy Mansion for a night of patriotism
Amy Freudenberg is one busy stylist! When she’s not working behind the chair, Amy is styling fashion shows, photo shoots and special events. This time Amy takes her styling talents to Beverly Hills for a charity event at the infamous Playboy Mansion.
Last May, Amy packed up her styling bag of tricks and headed to the Stars & Stripes Charity Event held at the Beverly Hills Playboy Mansion! She was thrilled to be able to participate as a hair stylist as this event where proceeds benefited veterans wounded during conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Seeing the iconic Playboy Mansion was a dream come true,” Amy says. “But knowing that the festivities were to help our brave veterans made the whole experience worthwhile.”
Amy caught the staff shuttle at the Beverly Plaza Hotel and arrived at the Beverly Hills Playboy Mansion at 8:30am. The hair and makeup team were setup in the mansion’s gameroom, which houses a fantastic collection of Hugh Heffner memorabilia along with classic arcade games and a pool table. The amazing 15-person team of body paint artists were hard at work in an outdoor tent creating pinup style looks inspired by the 1950’s era military.
As part of the hair styling team, Amy worked to develop creative upstyles consistent with the event’s theme and also incorporated the vintage military hats supplied by the body paint team.
Next it was off to the party! Stylists working the event were invited to attend the $2500 per person cocktail event at no charge. Hugh Heffner, along with his girlfriend Crystal Harris, kicked off the party. Amy partied with celebrities including David Hasselhoff, Tara Reid, and Verne Troyer. Guests enjoyed complimentary drinks and a fantastic buffet that included a sushi table, Italian spread and delicious desserts. “I will never forget my day at the world’s most famous mansion!” she says with a grin.
