The two key components to this all-important Glam Squad are costume designer and stylist Marina Toybina, and master hairstylist Dean Banowetz (a.k.a.., The Hollywood Hair Guy) who conjure up, create, and finesse the dresses and tresses each week.
Dean has coiffed such celebrities as Zac Efron, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Ellen DeGeneres, Leeza Gibbons, Ryan Seacrest, Jane Lynch, Kelly Clarkson, and our very own Simon Cowell for red carpets, awards shows, television, film, and more. His motto? "It's never done until it's overdone!"
Marina, who started designed at age 15, is an Emmy Award-winning designer and stylist who has worked with the likes of Usher, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, P!nk, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and on Season 1 of THE X FACTOR. It was her work on the first season of the show that landed her the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Emmy award for Outstanding Costume for A Variety Program or Special. And, her costume designs for Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" music video are on display at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
The two gave us an inside look at their how they do what they do on the set of THE X FACTOR each week in these insightful video interviews.
