Terri Apanasewicz

Terri is a leading Makeup Artist and Hairstylist known for creating picture perfect looks for celebrity clientele including Cindy Crawford, Debra Messing, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Carolyn Murphy, among many others. Terri's overall aesthetic philosophy is to enhance women's natural beauty so that they can be the best version of themselves, rather than wearing a mask. Her makeup is fresh and natural, which illuminates her clients' best assets instead of obscuring their faults. And the hairstyles she creates are practically works of art - they are sculptural, without ever becoming precious.

Terri approaches both hair and makeup with a sense of balance and harmony - literally one stroke of color or the placement of a strand of hair can both transform and contemporize an entire look. Her philosophy has resulted in a loyal clientele of some of the most beautiful and admired people who call upon Terri's hair and makeup expertise for editorial, runway, advertising campaigns, music videos, awards shows, television, premieres and other red carpet events.

Terri's work has appeared on the covers and pages of every major fashion and beauty magazine including "Vogue", "Harper's Bazaar", "Details", "W", "Allure", "Elle", "Marie Claire", "GQ", "US Weekly", "Rolling Stone", "Cosmopolitan", and "Esquire". She has worked with top photographers such as Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, and Matthew Rolston, and on many advertising campaigns for such top brands as Revlon, Clarins, Levi's, Coca-Cola, Sony, Polo, Laundry, Mercedes Benz, KMS, Salon Selectives, and more.

In addition, Terri is often called upon to share her beauty expertise, whether it is for magazine press quotes, commentary on television shows for makeover segments, or topical chat about fashion and entertainment, she's their "go-to gal." What's more, Terri has recently taught a master education class for the cosmetics firm MAC.
