Meet Tracy Moyer

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tracy Moyer.

Tracy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My mom was a dancer, I was raised in the dressing room of a burlesque club on Century Blvd in LA in the 60s, In the 80’s, I graduated from a holistic beauty school in Mnpls MN called AVEDA. I did hair and make up for a ballet company in Germany and now travel the world doing hair and make up for advertising, celebrity, and magazines. I’m based in LA and thrive on the diversity of employment, people and cultures here with the space to be myself, I feel incredibly grateful.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Freelance artistry is challenging at its core, you’re constantly trying to better your last work, maintain your clients, get new projects to stimulate your soul, find people that inspire you to be a better artist, and hopefully a better person. Things are great now but not always have been stable, and we all need help sometimes, something artist and independent contractors know that’s, I founded @careandconnection a pop-up shop for the unhoused, we provide clothes, shoes, socks, haircuts, tarps, tents, food, water and hygiene products. We care for the unhoused in midwilshire and Hollywood. Last year the number of unhoused seniors rose by 22%

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I specialize in a fresh, easy, undone California lifestyle hair and makeup. I’m strong in vintage hair as well, still with that laid back feel,

I’m so grateful for how long I’ve had some of my clients, and I’m proud of the incredibly talented teams I get to be a part of and campaigns I’m asked to work on, and I’m especially proud of my clients and my agent and friends I’m surrounded by supporting @careandconnection helping service the unhoused.

Acknowledging the crisis in LA and taking it on one tarp, one haircut, and PB&J at a time.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I used to think god turned the trees upside down in the winter.
