“Just have fun—it’s not brain surgery,” IATSE Local 706 President Sue Cabral-Ebert advised attendees at the Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards, held Feb. 15 at Hollywood’s Paramount Studios. After a 10-year hiatus, the awards were reinstated to honor the West Coast union members’ outstanding achievements in film, television, commercials and live theater.

2014 Local 706 Guild Awards: Gail Ryan and Benicio del ToroThe black-tie awards ceremony was preceded by a M.A.C.-sponsored cocktail reception and a red-carpet parade of nominees and the celebrities—including Benicio del Toro, Ed Asner, Jane Lynch and Tippi Hedren—who introduced them. Comedian Tom Arnold handled the evening’s emceeing duties, opening with a top-10 list of make-up artist and hairstylist-specific jokes (sample: “We have 300 extras. Can you just touch them up?”)

Artisan statues were conferred in 14 categories; Lifetime Achievement Awards for make-up and hairstyling went to Oscar winners Dick Smith and Gail Ryan, respectively. Fellow Oscar-winner Rick Baker paid an emotional tribute to Smith, his 91-year-old mentor, who was unable to attend the event. “Dick’s not in very good health, and it’s very apparent to me that he won’t be there for the rest of my life,” Baker said, noting Smith’s artistry, technical achievements and generosity in sharing information. Del Toro presented the hairstyling award to Ryan, who admitted that she had originally planned to become an accountant before her hairstyling career took shape. “It’s been a fabulous journey, and I’m so glad I got to take it,” she said.

Oscar-winning make-up artist Joel Harlow presented actor-client Johnny Depp with the first-ever Distinguished 2014 Local 706 Guild Awards: Johnny DeppArtisan Award for his “collaborative character development” with make-up artists and hairstylists on films spanning Edward Scissorhands to the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Depp thanked hairstylists and make-up artists including Ve Neill, Patty York and Harlow for helping him “get to the heart” of his characters. Without their aid, Depp said, “I wouldn’t even have come close, if I came close at all.”

The evening, which moved along briskly (“Leave it to make-up artists to come in under time and under budget,” Arnold joked) also saw two of this year’s Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar nominees receiving Artisan statues: Stephen Prouty for Best Special Make-up Effects in a Feature Length Motion Picture for Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa and Robin Mathews for Best Period and/or Character Make-up in a Feature Length Motion Picture for Dallas Buyers Club.

At a post-show dessert reception, Cabral-Ebert called the event a success. “The warmth, the happiness and the excitement in that room made it all worthwhile,” she said, noting that the event had drawn a capacity crowd of more than 500 people. “We had great production, great presenters; Tom Arnold kept it loose and fun, and each person who got a statue understood the meaning of it, and they were grateful.”

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?
