Working with Madonna is worth the “challenge”, says hair stylist Martin Samuel.
Martin has almost 40 years of experience as a hairdresser to the stars, and has styled a host of A-listers ranging from Keira Knightley to Madonna.
Martin was heavily involved in styling the actress-and-singer’s stunning locks in 1996 movie Evita, where she portrayed Argentinean icon Eva Perón.
The hair guru admits it wasn’t an easy job, since Madonna has such high standards, but he found making her look perfect was extremely rewarding.
“Anyone will tell that you that working with Madonna is a challenge, but it’s worth it, because she’s a great person to make beautiful, and that’s what that film was about,” he beamed.
Martin came up with a vast number of hairdos for the movie, and also made hair pieces to truly capture the essence of 1950s style. The hair designer wasn’t short of inspiration for the movie, as Argentinean people were happy to offer him style tips.
“I designed Madonna about 42 hairstyles for that film, and made so many wigs. Luckily, there was a lot of material to work from. Evita was the most photographed woman of her era, and when we were shooting in Argentina people would always come knocking on my door to try to show me their old photos or newspaper clippings of her,” he told British newspaper The Daily Telegraph.
