By Lauren Loudermilk | March 2, 2020 | Style & Beauty


Traci Barrett is no stranger to perfection, having worked with clients like George Clooney, Barbra Streisand and Reformation while representing one of the most respected hair and makeup agencies in the country, Art Department. The Scottsdale native recently celebrated a decade-in-the-making homecoming by opening a one-stop beauty shop in the Firefly Collective in Uptown offering both hair and makeup services as well as mobile beauty services for all occasions in your life on your time. “In a day where everyone is so busy and you can order anything to your house in a flash, why not get your hair done at home?” Barrett is especially excited to offer her one-of-a-kind luxury skills to the Valley. “It’s incredible to be back in the Valley after all these years,” she says. “It feels like home. I’m excited to bring home my experience and knowledge.” Here she shares the products keeping her well-kept.
