  • As a performer, I have worked with several hair and makeup stylists in the Nashville area and they have all been good. Jared Keys is outstanding. The makeup tricks he uses baffle me. I looked my absolute best--fresh and awake for a 6am on camera interview! Then, at CMA Fest in the blazing hot 100 degree full sun, my stage makeup never flinches. Jared has a gift that I have rarely seen. He's more than just a trained makeup and hair stylist. He's an artist. My recommendation is to tell him what you need styling for and give him space to create. He will know EXACTLY what to do. Professionally, Jared is quick to respond and does everything he can to make himself available. His personality is lighthearted which makes him very easy to work with. Truthfully, I hesitate to post this review because I want to keep him all to myself!! He's really that good.

  • Jared Keys is as good as it gets. I have used him several times for many different occasions: a night out with friends, photo shoots and even my wedding. Jared has the most magnificent techniques, with an astonishing drive to make you look and feel your best, when you want to impress more than ever before. Not only is Jared ideal for your most important events, he is also essential for elemental treatments for your hair, skin, trims, cut and color. I highly recommend his services. He will not only do an astounding job, he is also extremely entertaining.

  • Living in LA, I have access to the best of the best when it comes to hair and mau. A few of my Mau's whom have done my red carpet events also work for Cover Girl and MTV. Jared blew them out of the water! I deal with skilled professionals and Jared is a surgeon. I went to Nashville for a wedding and sought out Jared. I was blown away with him literally! First of all the blow out, the hair style he adorned me with lasted a week. I have fine hair and have never found a hair stylist with such skill. Then his artistic touch with make up is a gift! My Mau was cover girl ready. Nashville you're so lucky to have such an artist at your finger tips. If you want to feel gorgeous call Jared, and you better do it before I get him employed in LA. He is a hair/mau Rembrandt!
  • I've known Jared for ages! So not only can I attest to what an amazingly genuine and kind hearted person he is, he's a phenomenal stylist AND provides a healthy dose of laugh therapy during any session with him at no extra charge! He's generous like that.
    Jared styled me for an audition a few years back and despite it being a vocal audition, the panel gave me a call-back to the next round with the caveat that I wear the exact same outfit, hair, and makeup as I did that day to round 2 auditions. Jared has always had a gift for this and he deserves all the success in the world!

  • Jared is my go-to hairstylist whenever I'm in Nashville.
    The experience is a pleasant one (he's quite the character) and I'm always left looking great!
    Thank you so much!
