MEET CASSY

Hi there and welcome to my website! I'm Cassy, a Nashville, TN based beauty, creative, and special effects hair and makeup artist with a passion for transforming the human canvas. With years of experience in the industry, I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse range of clients for various occasions including fashion shows, red carpet events, photo and video shoots, weddings, parties and live events.

 

My journey began in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where I pursued a certificate in Cosmetology at Gogebic Community College. Seeking to expand my knowledge and skill set, I then moved to Los Angeles, CA to complete the Master Makeup Artistry Program at Makeup Designory.

 

Collaborating and networking with other creatives in the industry has always been a dream of mine, and I'm grateful to be living that dream today. My core values of professionalism, attention to detail, and creativity are at the forefront of everything I do.

 

I'm now based in Music City and am available for travel anywhere. Whether you're looking for hair and makeup services, beauty tips, or access to my favorite professional products, I'm here to help. Thank you for your support, and I can't wait to work with you!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

LAUREL | PRODUCTION

Cassy did such an amazing job!! She was great to work with and so kind. I showed her some photos before getting my makeup done and she did it exactly as I asked, I looked better than I could have imagine thanks to her. She also stayed during the photoshoot and helped fix everything I needed! I highly recommend her & I will definitely be using her again!

PAIGE | BRIDAL

Cassy is so incredible! She made me feel gorgeous on my wedding day. We had to replan a very intimate wedding due to Covid (site unseen), and because of all the last minute planning, I was unable to do a trial with Cassy. I sent her my inspirations and ideas for how I wanted to look, and she truly knocked it out of the park. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed and talked me through every step of her process so I wasn't totally surprised once I saw myself in the mirror/walking down the aisle. My family and friends commented on how kind and talented she was. I felt like myself, and that is what was most important. Thank you Cassy. You made this plan b wedding unforgettable! <3

TIFFANY | LIVE EVENT

Cassy did my hair and make-up for an event. She was easy to schedule, arrived on time, very professional yet friendly, affordable, and my make up was awesome. I was in the pouring rain and was the only lady there that still had make-up on. She used quality products. That I have now purchased for myself. I have referred her to so many others. I definitely would recommend over and over. Great job!
