Everything You Need to Know About Our Southern-Chic Look at the 2019 CMT Music Awards

The Dry House and Any Old Iron made me look (and feel) better than ever on the blue carpet.

Over the past few years, the city of Nashville has emerged in so many ways with the biggest ones being the beauty and fashion scenes.

When it comes to hair and makeup, The Dry House tops the list of the best salons in Music City. Located in Green Hills, the prestige blowout salon offers top-notch services and classic southern hospitality. The business is led by frontrunner and beauty vet Ali Ryan and the team’s looks are loved by some of the biggest names in country music and even me, Juliet Schroder.

The Dry House glammed me out last month for the 2019 CMT Music Awards and the results were absolutely stunning. Seriously, I was speechless after seeing the finished product!

With natural-inspired looks being the absolute rage on red carpets, my request included tight waves for the rainy, humid day. Stylist Kayla Logoleo delivered more than expected, making my hair look effortless while sticking to the traditional “big hair” country gals rock on the red carpet and beyond.

To complete the look, makeup artist Julia Bedeaux matched Logoleo’s work with glam that made everyone’s heads turn the minute it was complete. With contour and concealer in all the right places, the young beauty pro topped things off with a soft smoky eye, a pop of pink shadow on my lower lash line and a pinkish nude lip.

With glam that good, I needed an outfit to make just as much noise on the blue carpet and Any Old Iron was the brand of choice.

Recommended by a childhood friend, I visited designer Andrew Clancey’s appointment-only studio in The Gulch and felt like I was in fashion heaven from the moment I arrived. Known for wanting to make stars “stun” on stage with sequin-filled suits, dresses and more, it’s no surprise that stars like Taylor Swift, Elton John and even Beyoncé turn to Clancey for some of their most iconic looks.

After trying on four different pieces, I chose the True Colors Suit as my final look, which is available for purchase here. Paired with a simple bandeau and sandals, the sequin power suit was hands down the best outfit I’ve ever worn and made me feel like a total girl boss while interviewing some of the night’s nominees and performers on the blue carpet.

The Dry House Nashville is located at 2104 Crestmoor Road, Nashville, TN, 37215. You can view their services and pricing by visiting their website and make an appointment by calling 615-678-7064. To browse all of Any Old Iron’s looks, you can visit the brand’s official website at anyoldiron.us.
