Kelly Wearstler, Lonny Magazine - June 2013.
"Every time I work with Kelly I'm inspired by her one way or another, whether it's her fearless styles, eye-catching designs, or her wicked sense of humor. Because it was a lifestyle shoot with Kelly and the boys, I went for a clean and fresh look that's simple yet impactful. It enhanced Kelly's natural beauty and worked harmoniously with her outfits in a multitude of styles.
I used some of my favorite products on Kelly- Luminous Silk Foundation by Giorgio Armani, Cappuccino Eyeshadow by Jouer, smolderEYES Liner in Gunmetal by Tarte, Plushlash Mascara by MAC,Illume Bronzer in Sunset by Hourglass, and Color Balm Lipstick in Vivienne by Stila."
- Makeup artist Kristee Liu / Starworks Artists
Lily Collins, Glamour Magazine - July 2013. Hair - Mara Roszak / Starworks Artists.
"Ellen Von Unworths unmistakable style was my major inspiration for the shoot. I had never done a style like that on Lily, so she was into it and excited. We shot in Bergdorf Goodman, which was a unique experience. To be able to skim the room for new shoes and accessories while shooting was a dream!
I used lots of mousse and hairspray to create this /60's inspired look and you could easily get this look at home. Pull your hair in a ponytail, tease the pony tail a ton, then turn the ends under and pin. If there's still not enough volume, take a rolled up sock and stick it under the base of the pony, then tuck the ends under to disguise the sock. That should be plenty of volume."

Michael Shannon for XOXO - May 2013.
Michael's stature easily lends itself to suiting and his complex nature and the often intense characters he plays are easily referenced. But he has an incredible sense of humor and playfulness too that not always obvious in a photography. Whenever we work together I'm always conscious to have some whimsical options, mixing traditional styles and textiles with colorful accents and patterns. I never want the wardrobe to get too serious.
For the cover of XOXO, Michael wears a wool plaid 3-piece suit by Tom Ford, a barrel cuff dress shirt from Eton of Sweden and the Foulard Big Paisley tie by J.Press.

Sofia Vergara for Cosmopolitan Magazine - June 2013.
This was a dream come true! I've been obsessed with Sofia Vergara and her incredible hair for years so I had to pinch myself when I got the call that I would be working with her and it would be on a COSMO cover with MATTHIAS VRIENS-MCGRATH, I mean, add a wind machine and you have the perfect storm needed to reach hair heaven!

TRIPLE THREAT! Hairstylist [Marcus Francis](http://www.starworksartists.com/hair/marcus-francis/portfolio/ Marcus Francis") recreates three of Kerry Washington's winning red carpet looks. (ELLE)
Whether it's the perfume she wore, the way she styled her hair or the quick flick with which she applied her mascara; a mother's beauty routine is often one of the fondest memories passed down to her children. With Mother's Day approaching, we asked our Starworks Artists to reveal some of their mother's style and beauty tricks that they still embrace today.
My mom definitely set me up for success as a hairstylist. When I was a kid, my sisters and I all danced. And in order for us all to be "ready to go" the day of a recital, my mom put me in charge of putting in the rollers. But to be efficient, we did them the night before. So, after everyone had bathed and the hair was towel dried. I rolled up a bunch of pink sponge rollers in all 3 of my sisters hair! At the time, I had NO idea that that would set the tone for my current path. I've been hairstyling since I was kid, thanks ma!
- Hairstylist John D
My mom taught me the importance of caring for my skin. She showed me how to moisturize my face when I was only a few years old, by making small dots with moisturizer then blend upwards. She made sure I never forget to do the same with my neck and hands. My mom said a woman should never reveal her true age and her neck and hands, without being taken care of, will be the two places that may spill the secret.
- Makeup artist Kristee Liu
My mother taught me to love unconditionally, to always believe in myself and treat others how you want to be treated. I can’t think of what better defines my personal style than that.

My Mom has been insisting I wear 'a little lipstick' all of my life, probably even before the age at which it was appropriate to do so. She knows I love the feeling (not the look) of having my hair brushed, so I'll sometimes concede on that. Its also quite normal for me to wake up from a nap at her house and find that someone has put lotion and socks on my feet. So, Mom, thanks for being so lovingly creepy, you make me a better woman.
- Fashion stylist Nicole Vitagliano
What my Mom taught me was to always make the effort. Though she never wore full makeup but NEVER left the house without putting on lipstick. A little league game, grocery shopping, whatever...she had lipstick on. For me this has translated into taking an extra second before I leave to assess how I look, add some eye drops, change my shirt or throw some pommade in my hair. Always make the effort. U never know who you'll run into.
- Makeup artists Stephen Sollitto
I definitely owe my creative and visual sense to my mother. She is an amazing artist and sculpted stone for many years. I recently put together how similar styling hair is to sculpting. Her ability to see the beauty in most things, and creating shapes out of a blank canvas has always and will always be an inspiration. My mother is a true artist, through and through, i can only strive to be that as well.
- Hairstylist Mara Roszak
My mother had the most inspiring vintage style. I think it speaks for itself. (Photos featured above)
- Fashion stylist Jenny Ricker
I always sat and watched my mom get ready when she went out... her beautiful red hair, make-up and clothes were always impeccably put together. I remember asking her why she spent so much time getting ready, she answered, "If you take time for yourself it will always show." I try to remember this always...
- Hairstylist Laini Reeves
My mom has always had classic style with flair.... She loves the Burberry Scarf and Trench, the Chanel Jackets and Ballet Flats but she ALWAYS added her own touch....Shoes with faces (like the marc jacobs mouse, or the YSL lips), or wearing a fur with her hair done in corn rows.... she always had a sense of humor and was clearly always doing her OWN thing. This made her fun, it made people around her smile and of course taught me fearlessness and fun in fashion. Thanks MOM! HAppy Mothers Day!
- Fashion stylist Kris Zero
My mom is actually quite understated with her personal "style" and some would even call it plain. She always told us to treat others how we want to be treated. She also would say that it's not how a person looks or how much money they make that's important, its their heart. That to me is the most stylish and beautiful thing my mother has taught me. Xxoo

This prom season get your winning looks straight from your favorite stars of the red carpet. Hairstylists Adir Abergel and John Ruggiero break down two styles perfect for a night to remember! (MTV STYLE)
For the March Issue of Vogue Italia, photographer Douglas Friedman sets out to capture the natural movement of the Spring 2013 collections. Taking his models underwater, Friedman finds the perfect way to showcase the mix of sporty and flowy garments coming off the runways.
Starworks Artists hairstylist John Ruggiero created the hair story for this challenging shoot. Below he shares his tips and techniques on achieving the striking underwater shots.
ON THE EDITORIAL CONCEPT: I was really excited when I heard about the concept for the Italian Vogue under water shoot. I had never done a shoot quite like it before so it was learning experience to say the least.
ON CREATING UNDER-WATER SHAPE: I knew the hair had to be dramatic and that I couldn't rely on product or curling iron sets to achieve the look of volume. I figured that the 'more hair is better' approach was the way to go ( seeing that it works for mermaids). So, for each girl I started by anchoring super long, full wigs about 3 inches back from their hairline. I did this because I wanted to use their natural hairlines. After using a million hairpins to secure the wig I then applied a bag of long extensions just to bring it to the next level. I then cut the faux hair to give layers for more movement and volume.
ON MAKING THE HAIR MOVE: I experimented with the wigs prior to the shoot and found that jerking the hair and sharp head movements brought the hair to life! The girls followed the direction perfectly giving the hair an almost ghost like appearance.
ON STYLING ESSENTIALS: I didn't use any products beforehand but I used Bumble and Bumble Prep after to untangle the wigs and the models real hair and applied a leave in conditioner after that.

Many of 2012's box office hits looked to costume design to transport audiences to a different time or place. With period pieces like Lincoln, Les Miserables and Django Unchained dominating the awards circuit, it's no wonder the Costume Designer's Guild Awards were packed with celebs looking to show their appreciation. Check below for all the red carpet moments Starworks Artists help create.

Agyness Deyn, InStyle Magazine UK - March 2013
This 60's mod story was inspired by Andy Warhol and the factory girls. We also loved the Marc Jacobs spring 2013 runway look. To create the texture I used Bumble and bumble styling lotion along with some REDKEN Powder Grip.
Hairstyilst Luke Chamberlain for Starworks Artists
Kevin Bacon, TV Guide - Jan 21-27 2013
Kevin's character on The Following wears a dark blue suit. TV Guide wanted to reference that but wanted something more vivid. This Ovadia & Sons suit is the perfect, brilliant blue and made his eyes pop. No pun intended and if you've seen the show you'll know what I mean.
Menswear stylist Michael Fisher for Starworks Artists
Elle Fanning, BULLETT Magazine - Winter 2013
For this shoot, I wanted her eyes to be the main focus on her face. I wanted it to have a shiny, dewy texture. So I started with NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Bouthan. I mixed the two pink shadows and applied it on her eyelid, and then added Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream on top to make it glossy. The rest of her face, I kept minimal. I knew that the photographer [Pierre Debusschere] would photoshop a lot of graphics in (he's known for that), so I thought the glossy eye would add a nice soft texture to the pictures.
Makeup artist Mai Quynh for Starworks Artists.

Aubrey Plaza, ASOS Magazine - March 2013
This was a fun shoot day. The makeup was pretty natural besides a few bold lipstick changes, but it was the energy between Aubrey and photographer Danielle Levitt that was entertaining and fun to be around. They had us laughing all day!
Makeup artist Jenn Streicher for Starworks Artists
Bella Heathcote, 7 Hollywood - Fall/Winter 2013
They wanted a Jean Shrimpton vibe for this shoot, which I love. So I played up her eyes by adding a little dimension in her crease using Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in 47 Dunes. I used the soft brown in her crease and smudged it along her lower lashes. Then I added MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow in White 0 to her inner eyelid as a highlighter. This shadow is matte, so it gave a nice opaque white. I added a full strip of lashes from Ardell and then applied a few coats of YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in High Density Black to her top and bottom lashes. Finally, I added Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink along her upper lash line. I used soft rosy nudes for her blush and lips.

Dave Franco, Wonderland Magazine - February/March 2013
Dave is always so easy to work with. Laid back, funny and easy on the eyes it doesn't take much to make him camera ready. I used the La Mer Tinted Moisturizer on his skin, a little lip balm, brush throw his brow and he is set. In his hair, just some Bumble & bumble sumotech for texture. That particular day was a sunny (warm out of the shade) winters day. We laughed and had fun taking pictures. Not a bad days work.
Makeup artist Adam Breuchaud for Starworks Artists
Emily Vancamp, Women's Health - February 2013
I'm not really sure what my inspiration was I just wanted Emily's beautiful brown eyes to stand out. I had just received a bronzed eyeshadow palette from Tarte. It was perfect for Emily. So I built out the shadow so her eyes stood out and the gold in her eyes was picked up. I kept her cheeks warm with a Jouer blush and a Jouer gloss. She looked healthy and approachable. Just like Emily herself.
Makeup artist Stephen Sollitto for Starworks Artists

Gigi Hadid, GUESS Magazine - Spring/Summer 2013
For the spring/summer 2013 guess campaign I had the good fortune to shoot in beautiful Bora Bora. It wasn't hard to be inspired by this magical place and the stunningly gorgeous Gigi Hadid. Basically, before make up, Gigi and I would walk to the water and I would have her submerge her whole head in the ocean. I set her hair in medium sized braids all over her head. After makeup and within minutes in the hot south pacific sun, her hair would be completely dry. I then shook out the braids and added a touch of Amika Sea Buckthorn Berry oil Treatment mostly to her ends. Super easy.
(To achieve a similar look in the studio I would've used Bumble & bumble surf spray, a blow dryer then touched up a few strands with a 1 inch curling iron.)
Hairstylist John Ruggiero for Starworks Artists
Kid Cudi, COMPLEX Magazine - February 2013
The shoot was fashioned after a "futuristic rebirth" - I loved working with Scott aka "Cudi." I have been a fan of his for many years. We had a super successful shoot - we shot several different setups and he and I love vintage as well as Balmain - needless to say we had an awesome DJ on set - what a fun day. It has been a career goal of mine for 5 years now to work with Kid Cudi. Mission accomplished!
Fashion stylist Jenny Ricker for Starworks Artists
Hailee Steinfeld, FASHION Magazine - March 2013
Hailee had just had her sweet sixteen birthday party. It was fun to hear the details of a young girls birthday party and then turn around and see her in high fashion dresses, looking quite glamorous.

How are we supposed to get into the Winter spirit with photos like this coming across our desk?! GUESS Magazine took their Spring/Summer '13 photoshoot to Bora Bora this year and these photos have us dreaming of summer time. Starworks Artists hairstylist John Ruggiero was on set to create the effortless hair. He had this to say about model, Gigi Hadid's (top left), lived-in look:
It's about 90% Gigi and 10% me. I had her get her hair wet in the salt water, I put it up in a bun and then let the air and the salt water do their thing. I finished it off with a hairspray at the roots to give it a lift. With this hairstyle, less is more because it's super easy.
Another easy way to get this look is if you come to Tahiti, go swimming and have gorgeous hair…that really helps too.
