It’s become one of the most anticipated features of COLOR, Cut & Style—the celebrity stylist panel. Scroll down for crazy stories from A-list stylists, and swipe through the gallery for their best advice on how to make it as a celebrity hairdresser! Who will we bring onstage this year? We just revealed the lineup for COLOR, Cut & Style, August 20-22 in Austin, Texas, so get your tickets HERE!


Until then, we thought we’d look back at what we learned in 2016 with panel members:

  • Sally Hershberger (stylist for Meg Ryan, Scarlet Johansson, Brad Pitt)
  • Harry Josh (Gisele Bündchen, Amy Adams, Karlie Kloss)
  • Justin Anderson (Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Emma Roberts)
  • Sarah Potempa (Lea Michele, Margot Robbie, Victoria’s Secret Angels)
  • Anthony Cristiano (Mariah Carey, Adriana Lima, Demi Moore)



Here’s What They Revealed

  • Miley is heavily involved in her hair decisions, Justin revealed. “It’s a trip to work with her,” he said. “She texts me every day with ideas, even though I may not do her color for three months.” Another secret? “Her hair is so hard to lift,” he laughed. “So when she’s platinum, I keep telling her she should keep her hair rooty so I don’t have to do her roots!”
  • Old school celebrities never allow stylists to post them on their Instagram feeds, shared Sally. “You can’t even say you’re doing Brad Pitt’s hair,” she said. “And if Vogue caught you with a cellphone on set, forget it.” 
  • Much of the hair on editorial shoots? Wigs. “When you do editorial, you’re expected to bring cases of stuff,” Harry noted. “Wigs, pieces—you have to be prepared for anything. That’s what’s great about editorial. When you work with a celebrity, they have to chime in. Models don’t chime in at all. You bleach their eyebrows, you put on a crazy wig and they’re going to do it. Actresses, no way.”
  • Sally’s famous “supermodel photo,” shot by Herb Ritts and featuring Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Stephanie Seymour, Naomi Campbell and Tatjana Patitz, happened by accident. “We were at Herb’s house shooting Tatjana, and the other girls came by,” Sally remembered. “We were all best friends. Herb said, ‘Why don’t you take off your shirts?’ and I started doing their hair. It just happened.”
