CHARLOTTE, NC – Beauty & Pin-Ups bolsters their artistic lineup with four additional stylists joining the company, adding depth and dimension to the team.
Ana Vergara and Ellie Carter join Beauty & Pin-Ups for a second year. Vergara and Carter were an integral part of the team in their initial year and are now joined by several other stylists. Amy Swaney, Dyette Spain, James Vestal and Travis Spivey join the team as well, bringing years of educational and platform experience on the 2017 show tour.
Swaney brings 22 years of experience to the team, including 12 years as a platform artist and educator and six years as a salon owner in Charlotte, NC. Spain joins the team with 23 years of experience. Like Swaney, her passion and drive has served her in a variety of roles, from stylist and advisor, to educator and salon owner. Vestal comes from a vast background in the beauty industry. As a stylist, he enjoys the technical aspects of modern styles and the positive impact he has on clients’ lives. Spivey brings over 15 years of experience in fashion and merchandising, adding a unique and valuable point of view to the team.
With individuals from so many backgrounds, the team possesses much more depth and creates a strong educational platform for the brand.
The artists were carefully selected to create a well-rounded artistic team that has a dynamic approach to achieve company goals. “We want to change the conversation surrounding beauty. And we need strong supporters in the salon, on the street, and at shows to do that,” said Vice President of Marketing, Deana Hicks, of their goals for 2017. “We believe that beauty belongs to everyone, and consumers shouldn’t be bound by the traditional definitions created by the industry. We’re empowering women to define what beauty means to them.”
Beauty & Pin-Ups kicked off the season with Spivey, Vestal, Carter, Vergara at Mid-Atlantic Fashion Focus, followed by Nashville Fashion Focus.
