What is an Editorial Stylist?

An editorial hairstylist works primarily in front of a camera, on a set or styling celebrities. The work consists of fashion shoots, advertising campaigns, celebrity photo shoots and runway shows. As an editorial stylist, your main focus is on styling hair rather than cutting hair. The medium you work with expands to wigs, hairpieces and extensions. Editorial stylists usually are represented by an agency. The agency helps guide the artist as to which jobs to take, how to expand their portfolio and build their contact base.
