It takes a village to prep someone for the red carpet. OK, maybe not that much, but if an event that requires putting yourself on display to thousands, if not millions, is on the schedule, reinforcements are required. And for Tinseltown’s most talked-about red carpet stars, that means calling in the best of the best in hair and makeup.
More often than not, celebrities form bonds with their glam squad that go beyond “work.” They become friends or unofficial family members who just get it. Not only do they know how to create hairstyles or makeup beats that turn heads, these looks do an incredible job of reflecting the spirit of whoever is wearing it. And in an era when women are stepping up and speaking out more than ever, we’re glad to see famous beauties like Kristen Stewart, Lupita Nyong’o and more for reminding us that hair and makeup are a means of a self-expression, a way to celebrate our respective cultures, creativity, inner spirit and whatever else we so desire.
Ahead are nine of today’s most talked-about stylist and celeb duos, some of whom tell us what makes their muses true-blue beauty risk-takers.
