Working with some of the top celebrities and artists, being a celebrity hairstylist is one of the industry’s most coveted jobs. For a hairstylist, their job is one of the most important on photoshoot sets or before an event, making sure their client’s hair looks its best at all times. Many celebrity hairstylists are in charge of doing their celebrity client’s hair for award shows, red carpets, performances, music videos, photoshoots, television shows, and more.
Working as a hairstylist can be a stressful, but rewarding experience, as your work is on display for thousands to see. You also have to be familiar with what your client wants, and tailor their look for whatever event they are attending. Matching the hairstyle with the client’s makeup and outfit is also important, meaning that stylists have to have a sense of fashion and an eye for detail.
Today, popular celebrity stylists work with well-known celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Megan Thee Stallion. Let’s take a look at some of these celebrity hairstylists and their clients.
