Hairstylist Mary Brunetti is known as much for her celebrity clientele—she most recently created Bette Midler’s onstage look for Bette’s Broadway show I’ll Eat You Last—as she is for training world-class hairstylists. For the past 10 years, Mary has implemented her unique training program at the Sally Hershberger salons in New York City, where she is the Director of Education.
Brunetti has been called upon to style the hair for many celebrities, including Mariska Hargitay, Eva Longoria, Carrie Underwood, Jane Krakowski, Brooke Shields and Giada De Laurentiis, to name a few. She was Ricki Lake’s personal hairstylist on The Ricki Lake Show and made numerous appearances on the air as a makeover expert throughout the show’s 11-year run.
A well-known editorial stylist, Brunetti’s work has been published in Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, New York magazine, Town & Country, Modern Bride, People, Mademoiselle as well as all the leading industry trade magazines. Mary has styled hair backstage at Fashion Week for world renowned designers such as Donna Karan, Nicole Miller, Naeem Kahn and Vivienne Westwood. She is a veteran platform artist and former member of the Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team.
The first woman to be named North American Hairstylist of the Year at the prestigious NAHA awards, Brunetti has since served as a judge for the past 20 years. She was the technical hair advisor for Bravo’s Shear Genius television show.
Intercoiffure USA/Canada, the association of elite salon owners in North America, recently named Mary as Artistic Director of their high profile artistic team.
Mary owns her own salon, Brunetti Hair & Beauty, in the resort area of The Hamptons and consults with top salons around the country on how to implement her tried and true training techniques.
