In this blog you will see the unmade face of Jody Gray. Yes, it's true. Raw & uncut :)
A month and a half ago I (Jody) was asked by my super cool and amazing stylist, Korie, to be a hair model for The REAL Unplugged Tour by Aveda coming to Nashville, TN on May 31st. Korie was asked to be one of the four featured local Nashville artists to demonstrate her mad skills on stage to those in attendance and I was glad to accommodate!
The process began two days before with the SUH-WEET Korie cutting only a little of my hair, and then color was done by the AMAZING Valerie. Val is an ARTIST when it comes to color and is THE color stylist you have to see if you want amazing color - whether you want to go for the funky look, or natural and stunning.
Val also does makeup and here she is the morning of the event working her magic on my face.
We waited in the wings as stylist & educator, Tristin Morrison shared with the attendees as well as demonstrated his own skills and techniques (never knew hair cutting was so complex!!).
Then it was time for us to go up in front of the crowd of over 400 Aveda hair stylists!
Korie working her magic...
Getting ready to chop my bangs - gulp!
The MC complimenting my "beautiful eyes" and interviewing Korie about the techniques used.
The great unveiling!
And now some close up photos of the art of Korie & Valerie taken in the lobby! But first, let's show a Before shot, shall we?
These shots were taken in the Sheraton Hotel lobby in Nashville, TN
And here is Korie & I! Isnt't she adorable?
Now you may be thinking to yourself, "That's cool you have a hairstyle that YOU dig and fits you, but my look is totally different..." or maybe you don't even know what looks good on you and you are desperate for a change.
Never fear! Call Unruli salon in Franklin, TN (an Aveda concept salon) and the stylists there are trained to give you what you are looking for and what looks best and most flattering on you.
I never realized how complicated hair could be until I started listening to Tristan speak and Korie explain the different cutting styles that she was doing on my hair. REAL stylists pay attention to not only your face shape, but body type, how much change you are looking for (or not!), how well you take care of your hair, what you like and/or don't like about your current hair, and so many other factors and then they give you a cut that fits YOU.
All that to say, Korie & Val are absolutely amazing, and Uli who owns Unruli salon is a master of hair himself and a great man as well.
So for those of you who desperately need a change... you now know where to go - I did it and so can you! :)
Thanks for reading!
