About me
Being nominated for Hairstylist of the Year and Make-up Artist of the year for 2003 by the International Photographers Association, and winning the prestigious "Lucie Award" for Hairstylist of the Year, Mitzi Spallas has come full circle in the world of beauty. Beginning her career as a hairdresser in the late 1980's on the East Coast, Mitzi worked her way up to become one of the five members of the artistic council for Zotos International, a team of top hairstylists from around the world who would dictate the next season's beauty trends. During that time, Mitzi also learned to do make-up, and after moving to Los Angeles in the 1990's, began freelancing in both hair and make-up. Her freelance career started out strong when she met punk rock legend Billy Idol, who she still works with today. Working with Billy introduced her to some of the best photographers and directors in the business, such as director David Fincher and photographer Anton Corbin early in her career. She not only toured the world with Billy, but also has since toured with other musicians such as Jewel, Norah Jones, Michelle Branch, and Leann Rimes. Mitzi also worked for almost 10 years for the hip, innovative make-up company "Urban Decay", creating all of the looks for their advertising, in-store promos and merchandising. In 2003, Mitzi was sponsored by Thermasilk Haircare and given intensive media training to go on tour with Michele Branch and promote the Thermasilk Products.€ On doing both hair and make-up, Mitzi says, "I love creating an entire look for a client. I have strong backgrounds in both hairstyling and make-up, so I have a passion for doing either one. I feel fortunate to be able to do both, as I am exposed to many more experiences than I would if I were doing one or the other. Hairstyling is like sculpting, whereas doing make-up is more like painting. It's hard to choose between two very different, very creative art forms. Among her achievements, Mitzi has found much success in many aspects of the business, working on major commercials such as Oil of Olay, Coors Light, Lubriderm, and Showtime; Music Videos for Seal, Norah Jones, Toni Braxton, and Sheryl Crow; doing fashion editorials for magazines such as British Esquire, Marie Claire, and Spanish Vogue; and advertising campaigns which include The Gap, Lee Jeans, Levi's and Sony. Living in Los Angeles and working with The Cloutier Agency, Mitzi has also developed a loyal celebrity following, with such luminaries as Helen Mirren, Joan Cusack and Edie Falco. She has worked with scores of others, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Claudia Shiffer, Robin Williams, and Lenny Kravitz. Several Television Shows ("America's Next Top Model" and Feature Movies with actresses such as Kim Cattrell ("Breaking Point") round out Mitzi's contribution to the world of entertainment and fashion.  Mitzi is also acknowledged in her field by her experience with the Press with quotes on both hair and make-up tips from several major fashion magazines (In Style, Shape); Websites (Sephora.com), and TV and Radio appearances (Tracy Ullmans' "Visible Panty Lines" and MTV) With more than 15 years of experience in the beauty and fashion industry, Mitzi combines her knowledge of past inspirations with future vision, to create a total image unique to each individual and situation.
