How Celebrities Do It

March 11, 2012 by  

Have you ever been to a concert or seen a performance on an awards show and noticed how absolutely perfect the performer looks? Her makeup doesn’t seem to run no matter how much she sweats, her hair seems to remain free from frizz and doesn’t get wet from all the sweat. How do they do it? Looking perfect seems so hard for normal people to pull off and if you think about it, celebrities surely couldn’t do it without the help of their stylists.

Seeing a girl on a blazing hot stage with dozens of lights on her with flawless makeup makes you wonder why you can’t keep your makeup flawless during a low-stress day at school. The truth behind the scenes is actually…behind the scenes! Stars could never look as great as they do if they didn’t have touch up’s every time they exited stage during breaks. The job of a stylist is to update the performer’s look at every possible second.

For example, Fergie could sprint off stage with straight hair just to “change her outfit,” but when she gets back she has a whole different wardrobe, a new smoky-eyed makeup, and curly hair. This all happens in a matter of about sixty seconds and many people are amazed at how this can be pulled off. A stylist has tons and tons of practice and knows just how the business works: fast-pace and frantic. No matter how hard they may work it out on stage, celebs can always count on their trusty hair straighteners to get through frizz and messed up ends for each moment of the show.

You know those things called dress rehearsals? Yep, that’s how the stylist prepares him or herself and gets ready for the big show. They time everything from curling pieces of hair to getting the ride shade of eyeshadow applied. Of course they have their little secret tools that they love/have to use but it’s all about time and the pace that everyone moves at. The flawlessness is almost impossible to achieve, mostly because no one has the same type of hair as another person. Therefore, there isn’t one trick that is going to help each and every person’s hair; it takes a variety of ways depending on the type of hair you have.
