When we say "air guitar," you probably immediately think of Wayne's World or Tom Cruise jamming out in his tighty-whities in Risky Business. Well, we'd like to update your perspective on this faux-form of musical expression. Meet Adrianna Lombardo, a gorgeous Chicago regional air-guitar champ also known as White Flame. Along with spending her time strumming to '80s hits, she manages hot, new salon Smith & Davis. How does she blend the two worlds? Lombardo gives us the skinny — along with plenty of serious beauty inspiration.
But double life she does not live. In fact, Lombardo says that her onstage alter-ego is an enhanced version of herself: completely free, liberated, and confident. Throw a few coats of mascara in with that (one of her faves) and you've got a serious stunner with a way-cool hobby. Talk about a breath of fresh air.
