Academy to Add Two Governors to Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch

Academy to Add Two Governors to Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch

Posted: Tuesday January 29, 2013


Make-up artists and hairstylists will soon have a greater presence on the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. On Jan. 23, 2013 at a regular meeting, the governors voted to increase representation of the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch from one to three governors. The two new governors—one a make-up artist, the other a hairstylist—will join current governor Leonard Engelman after they are elected in a final vote in July.

"I'm looking forward to sharing the task of representing the academy's make-up artists and hairstylists with two of my colleagues," said Engelman. "New governors will bring new ideas, which will help to keep the academy's leadership strong and sharp."

The Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch was formed in 2006; it was the last branch added before the Costume Designers Branch was formed this year. The new governors from those branches will bring the total board size to 48 members, with three governors representing each of the academy’s 16 branches. Governors are expected to attend six annual meetings, as well as special events and award presentations throughout the year.

"Congratulations to our members from these essential craft areas. Movies are a visual medium and costume designers, make-up artists and hairstylists help to create images that tell stories," said academy president Hawk Koch.

The timeline for the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch elections is as follows:

  • Before May 15, all branch members receive a ballot to elect 10 branch members to form a Nomination Committee.
  • Before June 15, the Nomination Committee meets to nominate eight governor candidates (four make-up artists and four hairstylists).
  • Before June 30, ballots go to all branch members for election (to be returned by July 10).

U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland'
On a cold and cloudy Oxford afternoon, U.K. make-up artist Sarah Terry collaborated with photographer Rebecca Parkes, hairstylist Sean Butt and designer Bibian Blue to create this dark vision of Alice in Wonderland. The Victorian and Edwardian eras inspired Terry to contrast creams and gold hues with vibrant reds and smoky blacks. Appliqués, feathers, nail art and Butts’ elaborate hair design gave the looks texture. This particular Alice (Samantha Wilkinson) and White Rabbit (Blossom Blois) look innocent, but there’s a hint of mischief here, too. Let’s follow them down the path, shall we?
