Viva Sydney Guilaroff!

Make no mistake! This post is about the hairdresser artist Sydney Guilaroff, who gave Claudette Colbert her bangs, made Lucille Ball a redhead, gave Judy Garland her ”Wizard of Oz” braids and cut, curled, coiffed and cosseted virtually every other MGM star in a 40-year reign as Hollywood’s most creative and celebrated hairdresser.

Here he is with Ava Gardner and Dirk Bogarde on the set of The Angel Wore Red, 1960.
