It’s official: The award season marathon has begun and it has brought along the usual parade of tuxedos, gowns, impeccable updos and jaw-dropping jewels. But the celebs aren’t the only ones who are busy, running from the Golden Globes to the SAGs and the Oscars; their teams of stylists, hair stylists and makeup artists are hard at work, too.
The months of January and February are notoriously grueling for a celebrity stylist. Most of the L.A. wardrobers work with a number of clients simultaneously; they have to ensure that each actor or actress looks picture perfect for every party, red carpet, dinner and premiere. Once upon a time, outsiders could only dream about what happens during a fitting or in the last minutes before a celeb steps into an event, but now we have Instagram.
Here are a slew of the top stylists who you should follow on social media, in advance of the Golden Globes. These professionals have already begun to prep their clients for the Sunday evening award ceremony and you might be privy to a pic of a celeb or two before they hit the red carpet.
