Fashion Show Benefits the 
Schemerhorn Sympony Center


Famed Designer Selects Vanderpool for Second Consecutive Year
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) April 8, 2008 – Acclaimed cut and colour specialist Michealle Vanderpool
has been selected, for the second year in a row, to lead the hair and makeup team for the upcoming
Oscar de la Renta fashion show to be held at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on April 22.

Having flawlessly readied all models’ hair cut, colour and makeup for last Spring’s very successful
Oscar de la Renta fashion show, Vanderpool was excited to be chosen to lead a team for a second
year.  She shares, “It’s an honor to have been part of the incredible team that pulls this show together.  This Spring’s line of hair and makeup will be fun and exciting to debut on his runway.”

Vanderpool, a well-established cut and colour specialist on the international circuit, established her  flagship salon and colour lab, focusing exclusively on hair at 2916 West End Avenue, last summer. With a charming mix of classic and contemporary décor, Vanderpool provides a relaxed environment for cut, colour and style.  Vanderpool’s goal at Michealle Vanderpool Salon.Spa is to make celebrity styliists accessible to the public.

With credits ranging from Walk The Line, The Bridges of Madison County, and The Green Mile, celebrities have made Michealle Vanderpool one of the most sought-after hair and makeup artists in the world.

Vanderpool studied the chemistry of beauty at ISB, one of the most reputable cosmetology schools in
the U.S.  As an expert on color with more than 15 years as a L'Oréal Educator, Vanderpool has been honored by L'Oréal Paris with its esteemed Visions of Color award in 2000 and 2001.

Her ability to focus on the character of her subject, whether it is industry related or personal was developed with Daniel Perez at Cloutier, Montreal. That experience opened doors to German Vogue, Italian Mossimo, Turkish Cosmo, and earned her key film credits with such programs and movies as “Saturday Night Live” and October Sky. 

A master artist, Vanderpool has worked with three presidents and more celebrities than can be counted. Yet her most memorable experiences are those that have changed people’s lives on a daily basis. For work samples, visit www.mvanderpool.com.  

Michealle Vanderpool Salon.Spa will feature the very latest in L'Oréal Professionnel & TIGI BED HEAD products.  To book appointments, please call: 615.321.2237.

As one of the most highly respected hair and makeup stylists in the world today, Michealle Vanderpool continues to be an innovative force in the fashion and entertainment industry. 

Having honed her craft in creative hubs including New York, Toronto, Miami and Montreal, Vanderpool is sought-after by an ever-growing list of influential clients in music, film and television.  She has spent the past two decades enhancing the images of actors, musicians and other celebrities, spanning the fashion spectrum from the last three Presidents to pop superstar Gwen Stefani.

Her impressive portfolio includes not only European catalogues, and leading international fashion magazines such as German Vogue and Cosmo but also boasts key credit roles in television including, Saturday Night Live, Conan O’Brien, Oprah, Las Vegas and key film credits such as Tobey Maguire’s October Sky, Anthony Hopkins’ Hearts In Atlantis, the Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line, and the Tom Hanks blockbuster The Green Mile.


Currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, Vanderpool’s talents are enlisted by several record labels
and music artists, as they establish the artist’s image in packaging, music videos, commercials and personal appearances.

Unquestionably, Vanderpool’s world-class reputation stems from a unique ability to draw-out an individual’s personal style, from classic to extreme. Her clients consistently rave about her ability to customize a look to their personality and lifestyle.

Michealle’s cuts range from the basic, perimeter-cut, to the very advanced, intensive interior-cut which addresses the innermost layers of the hair, a technique typically executed by master stylists, which recognizes and treats overstressed hair.

Known as one of the world’s premiere color specialists, Michealle melds her unique cutting style and passion for healthy hair with extensive training in the science of color, to offer her clients the latest in color technology, designed to nourish and maintain the health of the scalp and hair.  Michealle’s technical expertise and innovative approach has been recognized by industry leader L'Oréal Professionnel with its “Vision of Color” award, which she garnered in 1999 and 2001. 

Michealle’s philosophy is simple:  Healthy hair is beautiful hair, and when cared for it will do what you ask of it.   She has been dubbed “Hair Therapist,” team leader, educator, and visionary.  She’s a firm believer in education, not only for her clients, but also for those who work with her and she is committed to investing time in each client to develop and draw out their own personal style. 

Already reaching a prestigious audience with her award-winning hair and makeup artistry, Vanderpool is thrilled to be widening her influence to a new client base with the grand opening of a full salon in a modern, private setting on West End in Nashville, in May of 2007. Her new salon will also feature yoga, pilates, massage, extensions and color; each area being handled by a specialist in their craft, offering clients the utmost in personal service and cutting-edge style.
