The 12 Days of Glam: Thursday, December 26thCategories: The Insider
2013 has been an amazing year at Tracey Mattingly, LLC — one of growth, wonderful new friends, and incredible opportunities. As it finally approaches its end, we asked some of our artists to reflect on this past year and dream about the possibilities of the next.
Today, we asked several of our artists to share their most inspiring experiences of 2013... You don't want to miss their amazing stories!
"For me, 'fun' is anytime someone wants me to do their hair for a moment that is a really important to them. This summer, I was asked to go on my first music tour with Ariana Grande as she opened for Justin Bieber. I learned so much about myself and my craft and left the tour feeling like I could do anything I put my mind to. I made some great friends and will look back on those challenging moments as the gift of perspective. I am a more grateful person after that experience!" — Celebrity hairstylist Paul Norton
"Some years seem to pass right by with not much change and growth. This past year, however, has produced some of the biggest life-changers I have ever had! They say good things are proceeded by chaos, and that was exactly true for me! My most memorable moments of 2013 started out with a milestone into adulthood when I moved into my very own place! Then I signed with Tracey Mattingly agency. This was something I was working to achieve ever since I realized I wanted to become a makeup artist. The year got even better when my little brother returned home safely from fighting in Afghanistan. The biggest career highlight was working New York Fashion Week with the Stila Cosmetics team and getting published in Vogue and Glamour Magazine- two of my favorites! I'm so beyond thankful for this year and all the new people I've met through work and the friendships I've developed. I can't forget to mention the biggest life changer: the adoption of my Morkie puppy, Gypsy Rose Lee!" - Celebrity makeup artist Carissa Ferreri
