NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- L'Oreal Paris, the number one global beauty brand, is thrilled to welcome renowned celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak to the brand's impressive roster of experts. Known for creating some of the most talked-about red carpet looks and coined a "rising star" of Hollywood hair, Mara will lend her expertise for product development, content creation, consumer education and creating trendsetting hairstyles for L'Oreal Paris spokespeople.
Only 27 years old, Mara has built an impressive client list featuring some of Hollywood's best, including Emma Stone, Lily Collins, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana and Kat Dennings. Her roster of clients is the marker to the number of publications attached to her name as well. From top fashion and beauty magazines both in the U.S. and abroad, Mara has mastered manes cover to cover.
Mara exudes raw creative talent as a stylist, marked by her effortless, soft approach to styling hair. She credits her love for fashion and hair to a variety of factors. In addition to the creative talents cultivated by her mother who was a sculptor, Mara derives her artistic motivation from her interest in being a part of a creative concept. Whether creating the perfect beachy, tousled hair look or fashioning a romantic, airy chignon for a movie premiere, awards show or magazine cover, she loves being able to collaborate on a project that is visually stimulating.
"It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome Mara to the L'Oreal Paris family," said Karen T. Fondu, President, L'Oreal Paris. "Not only is she immensely talented, creative and a trend-setter on and off the red carpet, but her passion and extremely likeable personality help inspire both her celebrity clients and women everywhere to look and feel their best. She truly embodies the spirit of our brand philosophy, 'Because You're Worth It.'"
"I feel so lucky to truly love my job. Working with women to help them be their most confident selves is the most satisfying part of what I do," says Roszak. "I have long admired L'Oreal Paris' dedication to helping every woman embrace her unique beauty and couldn't be more thrilled to now be part of that commitment. I am excited to work with the brand to provide women with the most innovative, advanced and accessible haircare products and insider knowledge."
Mara's career began at the young age of 16 years old when she enrolled in beauty school to hone her creative skills. Growing up in Los Angeles, she had been exposed to the diversity of aesthetics from an early age. Her mother encouraged her to explore visual beauty in a multitude of ways. At beauty school, Mara quickly stood out among her classmates as one of the strongest and most promising students. Within a year, she received a call from a friend who happened to be a publicist for several high-profile actors. She was asked to style Sarah Michelle Gellar's hair for a movie premiere and has been working with Sarah ever since.
Today, Mara spends most of her time traveling with her celebrity clients. When not on the road, she resides in Los Angeles with her husband Alex Polillo, also a celebrity hairstylist. In her rare downtime, she loves interior design and has received many accolades for their beautiful Silver Lake home, in which its decor comes across just as effortless as her styling.
Mara is passionate about sharing her love of hair with all women and has been recognized by several publications and sites for her social media channels. She posts amazing hair inspiration, behind-the-scenes images of her clients and humorous images of her dog, Marc Silverstein. In her new role, she will be utilizing these channels and L'Oreal Paris' to share insider tips and tricks, including how to recreate her red carpet looks at-home using L'Oreal Paris products.
