In Hollywood, the real magic happens behind the scenes. Especially when your luggage gets lost and you have to style an A-list actress's hair for the red carpet with basically nothing but your hands.
Enter mane master Adir Abergel, whose wizardry is exactly what makes him one of Marie Claire's inaugural class of Image Makers award-winners. We're honoring him and five other behind-the-scenes powerhouses on January 12 in Los Angeles, right after they've flexed their muscles at the Golden Globes. Because when you're the one responsible for making all those stars look so starry, you deserve an accolade of your own, no?
We've teamed up with the E! Style Collective to do a series of fun video interviews between the winners and Marie Claire senior fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi—here, she talks to Abergel about everything from how he handles the stress of the red carpet to what he does in moments when he's forced to think on the fly.
Check it out, and stay tuned for more fascinating scoop our Image Makers!
