We are so fortunate to have been asked to do the hair and make up for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. We got the call 10 days before the event and were asked if we could pull together a team of 10 for this event. I said ” I will try” with such short notice, I gathered my Creative Team together, ran it by them and prayed for a ~yes~…Not only did I get a ‘yes’, I got a ‘hell yeah’! I have the most amazing team in the industry.
They were all so excited to embark on this journey together. We booked our flights to Vegas, leaving at 8:30 a.m. and to return at 11:00 p.m. O.K. game on! We land in Vegas and get picked up in style by a huge Limo…pull up to the Hilton to see the red carpet being rolled out. (not for us 🙂 but one can dream~ We went from our pre-production meeting, to the Hair and Make up rooms, then off to stage right and stage left. There were stars swarming the place. It was very exciting to see some old timers such as Tony Orlando (what a sweetie), Chubby Checker (he serenaded us in our make up room, so cool) and the Spinners.
This Emmy Award Program was also a tribute to Dick Clark. So the people that were on American Bandstand early on, performed this particular evening. There were satellite appearances by Cher, Simon Cowell, Garth Brooks and Barry Manilow to name a few. Marie Osmond, Susan Lucci, Regis Philbin, Ryan Seacrest, David Copperfield were a few of the stars that touched the evening (and we touched them :)…oh, don’t let me forget the Blue Men Group.
It was a great time had by all and we look forward to doing it again and sharing the evening with you…please visit our facebook fan page to get a glimpse of all the photos and videos.
