Every year, Miami hosts one of the biggest weeks in electronic music alongside Ultra Music Festival, the Winter Music Conference/ Miami Music Week. In our latest video installment we’d like to invite you to tag along with Ashley and Kimbo in their adventure to last years Dim Mak x Obey The Kitty Pool Party at WMC. Watch as these two West Coast girls party on with cameos from Steve Aoki, PeaceTreaty, Dirtyphonics, R3hab, Lil Jon, Tommy Gunz, and more.
Its not too uncommon to see women shaving their heads now a days. Natalie Portman rocked it, So did Amber Rose, and even with her baby bump she still looks bomb. It can be considered a bold statement and often prominently displays confidence. I mean yeah, you might end up going crazy and try to stab people with an umbrella but unless you’re like that you should be fine. Anyways, our girlfriend Lacy is one of these women, and if you’ve spotted her at any of our events, you can already tell she brings the party and turns hairy heads. She was such a sweetheart and asked that I would photograph her going all out no clipper guard for what turned out to be a great evening of shooting some awesome photos. After all the the hair was gone (off her head and all over the floor and sink), and still excited to keep cutting, she turned the scissors on one of our new Dirtyphonics tees and with a little DIY, went custom for the night. We strongly encourage this behavior so show us your best DIY custom Dim Mak merch!
