Hi! I'm Taylor.
I'm glad you're here.
I'm a beach bum, book nerd from FL, who moved to Nashville with a dream of doing glam for the music industry. I joined the best Aveda team I could find at William Edge Salon, and haven't slowed down since!
I've styled the ABC Red Carpet show for the CMA Awards and backstage for CMA 360º. I've worked with Reba McEntire, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Chris Young, Lee Brice, Michael Ray, Sarah Darling, Nada Taha and Caroline Kole, to name a few.
With my amazing William Edge team, I've served as lead Makeup Artist for Nashville Fashion Week, creating looks for fashion designers including Anna Sui, Amanda Valentine, Johnathan Kayne and Any Old Iron.
I also volunteer with Look Good Feel Better, teaching women with cancer how to overcome the appearance related side effects of their treatment.
This year, I got to speak in Texas at the AVEDA William Edge Tribal Forum about ways we can better engage with the guests in our styling chairs.
I won Gold Medal in the Skills USA Competition for Cosmetology, and the 1st guest post on TheBeautyDepartment.com with my Boho Braid creation. On my 20th birthday, I achieved my Bachelor's in Studio Art from Florida State University, and I use it every day applying color theory, shape and texture to help others show off their personal style.
Ultimately for me, doing hair and makeup is about channeling people's unique beauty they already have inside. As creator and host of the podcast, Pretty Please, I explore how we can discover beauty beyond hair and makeup, by chatting with empowering people about how to ignite our fire within.
