Celebrity hair sometimes seems like it holds magical properties. One day it's short (opens in new tab), the next it's long. One day brunette, the next day blonde (opens in new tab). Feats of transformation that seem impossible for mere mortals occur every week for the A-list's boldest members. How do they do it?

The answer is: they don't. Seemingly effortless metamorphoses are actually the ingenuity of star stylists like master colorist Tracey Cunningham, whose A-list clientele includes Cameron Diaz, J.Lo, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Cunningham is the next member of the inaugural class of Image Makers award-winners (opens in new tab) we'd like you to meet. 

We've teamed up with the E! Style Collective (opens in new tab) to do a series of fun video interviews between the winners and Marie Claire senior fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi—here, she chats with Cunningham about how she transformed natural blonde Emma Stone into a fiery redhead, and what makes a new shade look so natural.
