Saida Staudenmaier is a Los Angeles-based make-up artist and hairstylist who has been professionally working in the entertainment industry for more than a decade. With a BFA from the California Institute of the Arts, Saida is a true double threat: She offers a keen eye for marrying color with light, and delivers clients a positive, focused, and drama-free work ethic. This has helped numerous directors and photographers achieve the looks they wanted while making talent feel completely at-ease, creating a positive work environment for everyone involved.
Over the years she has helped the Jonas Bros look pitch-perfect, delicately detailed Dita Von Tesse's distinct style, and gave the captain of the Starship Enterprise himself--William Shatner--a commanding presence. Other celebrity clients have included, Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman, Jon Favreau, Ricardo Montalban, Amber Benson, James Marsters, Henry Gibson, Layla Ali, Charles Pheonix, Janine Lindemulder, Sam Waterston, Skylar Grey, Antonina Armato and the cast of High School Musical.
Saida's editorial and advertising clients are just as diverse, ranging from Nike and Giorgio Armani to McDonalds, E! and Disney TV. Other editorial/advertising clients include Pampers, AT&T, US News and World Report, Vogue Hommes International, Joico, Axe, 55 DSL, West Coast Choppers, Honda, MCA Records, Golf Digest Magazine, XLARGE Clothing, and HBO Sports.
With incredibly varied experience and a willingness to jump into any situation with a positive attitude, Saida isn't just a great team player, she's the kind of valuable asset who reduces on-set stress, handles challenges before they become problems, and does it all while delivering amazing work.
