Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel’s life reads like a Hollywood film. Once a member of the American Ballet Theater in New York City, his tenure was cut short due to an irreversible injury. Although Adir’s dance career was short lived, it helped him hone his artistic eye, a gift that eventually led to a new passion – hairstyling. Relocating to Los Angeles, Adir became acquainted with Arthur Johns, a seminal 70’s hairstylist famous for transforming the locks of leading Hollywood ladies. By the age of 20 Adir was ready to branch out on his own, and quickly became “one to watch” in his field.
Catapulted into the fashion and editorial world, Adir landed work with top publications like Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, V and W. A celebrity clientele soon followed as he continued to work his magic on leading A-listers like Kristen Stewart, Rooney Mara, Jennifer Garner, Keira Knightley, Rachel McAdams, Sienna Miller, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel. This work has taken him all the way around the world and back, from styling Kate Beckinsale in Cannes to getting Kristen Stewart red carpet ready in Tokyo.
In 2008, Adir accepted the title of Celebrity Ambassador for Frédéric Fekkai, the leading luxury hair care brand. In this role, which he held for 4 years, Adir served as a media spokesperson for Fekkai, offering tips, tricks and his insider’s point of view.
Adir Abergel resides in Los Angeles, California where he continues his editorial and celebrity work.
