Today I am going to introduce to you one of Nashville's (in my opinion, best) Styling companies around! Above is Tarryn Feldman creator of Nashville Glam! She is here to tell us all about styling artists from Thomas Rhett, Jana Kramer, and more to her advice for all you ladies out there on makeup and hair! I promise, you are going to want to read this!
NN: Please start by telling us a little bit about yourself? Who is Tarryn Feldman? How did you get your passion and start in the "glam" industry?
Tarryn: I am a very driven California girl trying to make a strong mark on Nashville. I wanted to be a makeup artist when I got my first Kevin Aucion book at the age of 12. I've been professionally doing makeup and hair for over 13 years.
NN: Tell us about Nashville Glam. What is Nashville Glam? Who is part of the team? How did this idea come to be a reality?
Tarryn: I am the creator of Nashville Glam. After I started working with Meg and Stephanie for a while, I stumbled upon Mari and Kristen. I started becoming very busy, as most artists do, and had to pass off work or have one of the girls be me for the day with some of my clients. It just came to me one day to start a team. Labels and other industry people trusted me to send a good artist if I couldn't be there and I thought a team was a stronger force than one single person. I have always been a good leader and never afraid to take a chance so I came up with NG. We are a really good team.
NN: So you specifically do hair and make-up, correct? How do you differentiate from one client to the next so they have their own look? What kinds of things do you use and think about before working with a client?
Tarryn: I do both makeup and hair. When you are good at what you do and have a constant need for education and knowledge... You push your clients out of their comfort zone which helps them create a brand. Glam is always a huge part of ones brand.
NN: Who is one of your favorite artists/celebrity that you've had the pleasure of working with?
Terryn: I honestly love all of my regular clients like Mickey, Danielle, Jana, Maddie and Tae. I adore the women in this city.
NN: What made them be a memorable client for you?
Tarryn: They are supportive of my career and make my job valid. They are strong women and teach me to be a better person. They have become family.
NN: You have worked with many country artists including STELLA//JAMES, Jana Kramer, Luke Bryan, Danielle Bradbery, and many others. I want to focus on Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren for this question. What is your favorite look that you've done for him (and Lauren)?
Tarryn: TR and Lauren are amazing and always a blast!!! My favorite look on Lauren was the big messy side braid and magenta lip:) I believe it was CMT 2014.
TR's hair is great and kind of always looks great:)
NN: Since the last question was geared towards your male looks, what is your favorite female look you've ever done?
Tarryn: Danielle ACM 2015 Mohawk braid
Maddie & Tae ACM 2015 - thier glam was so good!!!
Jana CMT 2015- my first award show and it was killer:)
NN: Do you ever get star struck working in the field with the people that you do?
Tarryn: Not yet!
NN: What is your favorite part of your job?
Tarryn: I love that I actually love my job. So many people can't say that.
NN: Because ladies love doing hair and makeup, if you could give them one tip that you've learned from your career what would it be?
Tarryn: Wash your face every night!
Less is more but sometimes more is f****** awesome!!
Eye brow feathering.. Google it!
