Amal Clooney’s Wedding-Day Hair, By Max Coles

LINk Amal Clooney’s Wedding-Day Hair, By Max Coles

It was long, it was luscious, and it stayed immaculate for four days straight while careening through Venice—we are, of course, referring to Amal Clooney's unflappable hair! Why, The Telegraph even called it “glossier than a copy of Vanity Fair.” Excuse us!

We sat down with Max Coles, the creative director of the Michaeljohn salon, in Mayfair, London, and learned all about the lead-up and the day (or should we say days?) in Venice with one of Hollywood’s leading men—and now Amal's husband—George Clooney.


Vanity Fair: Has she been your client for a while? If yes, for how long? If not, how did she find you? Did someone recommend you to her?
Max Coles: For about a year. Anna Wintour recommended me to her.
V.F.: Can you tell us which products you used to achieve and maintain the look?
M.C.: The products were important for the volume and, especially in Venice, four days on the water. The humidity level was unbelievable. So I used maximizer for the roots and a bit of polishing products to keep the shape. There are lots of great, affordable root-lift products on the market. I use Philip Kingsley's Maximizer Spray. Then I rough-dry the hair using heat on the roots to create as much volume as I can. At this stage I am just using my hands and a paddle brush. I always use a powerful hair dryer with a nozzle to direct the heat exactly where I want it.
V.F.: What was your reaction when you got the call to do her hair for the wedding?
M.C.: I can’t tell you ... because I said no to her! I had other things to do, already planned in advance. She said, “I’ll come back in an hour. Just think about it.” And when she came back, I said yes, of course, and I’m very grateful and honored.
V.F.: How many practice runs did you have?
M.C.: A couple of times, just to feel comfortable.
V.F.: Did you attend the wedding?
M.C.: I didn’t attend the wedding [as a guest], but I was around all the time, just a few meters from them. I was glued to them for every picture, because that’s my job!
V.F.: And what was the wedding like?
M.C.: You know, with beautiful surroundings, as everybody knows. And my hotel was the Belmond Hotel Cipriani. Small wedding … very elegant. Probably more paparazzi than guests!
V.F.: How collaborative was the process? Did Amal come to you with a look in mind?
M.C.: From the beginning, Amal and I decided to go for very chic, casual, elegant, nothing fancy, nothing over-the-top—very glamorous and bohemian. As you can see in her pictures, she always looks the same. She just wanted a very natural blow-dry all the time. Most of the [main] event was in the evening, so we had quite a lot of time.
V.F.: And did you do any practice ahead, or you knew her hair so well?
M.C.: Yes, a couple of times, just to feel comfortable.
V.F.: Any problems that occurred, or any near disasters?
M.C.: Well, if you spend most of the wedding on the boat on the canal ... Yes, let’s face it. [It wasn’t easy.] But no, I think the pictures speak for themselves, and she looks fabulous. And we didn’t know that until the end, because, you know, we were on the boat. You have paparazzi all over, so you don’t know what has happened. But no disasters. Everything was well organized.
V.F.: Was it hard it keep it a secret?
M.C.: Yes. She asked a month before the wedding. I didn’t tell the salon until the final couple of days before.
V.F.: The salon must have been so excited.
M.C.: Anna Wintour’s P.A. called the salon to ask me to do her hair in Venice, but the salon said that I was not in Venice, so that wouldn’t work. [And then it clicked!]

The most interesting thing to me is that Anna Wintour brought Amal to him about A YEAR AGO. So she's known Amal about as long as George has. I wonder how that came about. Hate to say it, but it does lend some credibility to globalchick's theories.

I think once George made up his mind that Amal was it, he set about preparing her for what was coming. He knew what she was in for. And he's a director. He knows what a person needs to look good in pictures.

And let's face it, this is George Fucking Clooney we're talking about. The lower middle class Kentucky boy who built an iconic Hollywood career, who has the best of everything because he has taken control of it. He is humble about what he has achieved, but still, IMO, extremely vain about his image. If he is going to have a wife, she is going to be someone to be reckoned with, and he will do what it takes to get her there.

Besides, who's to say that Amal didn't ask for the stylists etc because she didn't feel she was up to the scrutiny, and he obliged her? The actress... what's her name, the one who always claims "I fucked George"... is a friend of Anna Wintaur, so she could have been the go-between. It's possible.

Anyway, I don't think there's anything to be surprised about. No "gotcha." We know she went through some major upgrades in her appearance shortly into their courtship. We're just hearing some details. Still doesn't mean there's any intent to make her into anything except the woman who looks like she's Mrs. Fucking Clooney.

I think once George decided Amal was going to be his public girlfriend for a while he knew she needed help to look more polished. Enter the style consultants like Anna. 

It's rather pathetic that Stan has advised that Amal's hairdresser give interviews as they continue on with their campaign to turn Amal into the new Jackie O. It won't work. I also believe that that stupid Amal fashion blogger is being paid to do that blog by George's or Amal's PR people. 

Literally I believe they've drafted a PR strategy, an actual document, on building Amal into a fashion icon and celebrity "human rights lawyer" and they are implementing it with a list of fashion media to target and everything. I'm in PR myself - not celebrity PR - and these communications plans are what PR professionals put together. In my opinion the PR stunt wedding was very important as Amal's launching pad. That's why IMO they selected Venice and Amal had all those silly outfit changes and they courted all the media attention the way they did with the waving to all the cameras as they sailed back and forth in the gondolas. It was a massive PR show. As was the full-on selling of all the wedding pictures to so many magazines in the world. They needed to create a frenzy of media attention around Amal. They got it. And then the ridiculous Greece trip where Amal was paraded in front of the cameras and all her movements were leaked to the press in advance to ensure media attention. 

BUT as I've said before, you can try and shape the media to the best of your ability BUT you can't fully control it. I'm quite sure that Amal becoming a Halloween caricature was NOT part of the plan. And I don't think they anticipated the level of dislike towards Amal that resulted from them overselling her. The public can see they are being played hence many comments in social media about the "Clooney circus" and that general vibe in the social media and in comments below articles on Amal of: "Why are they shoving Amal down our throats again like she's the next biggest thing?".

I also think part of the backlash - which these PC people George surrounds himself with didn't anticipate - is dislike of Amal because she is an Arab. 

I also think Stan plus Amal's London based PR people were responsible for working the British media to get her that fashion nomination and the influential woman award. They are trying to manipulate all of us. But because of the 2 reasons I mentioned above the public is not really warming to her. The other reason is that she is not conventionally pretty enough in the way that say, Stacy or Celine was. So she doesn't have mass appeal. To truly be a star women have to want to look like her and men have to want her. Most women would NOT want to look like Amal and most men certainly wouldn't want her. And that's the problem. Angelina Jolie and Jackie O in their heyday had that appeal. So did Queen Noor in her youth and so did Queen Letizia when she was young - she's too skinny now.

Amal just doesn't have that appeal I'm afraid. If I were their retained PR consultant assessing the results of this "campaign" I would think - we have got her the profile that we wanted to achieve - in the sense that they've made Amal, who was really a nobody, relatively famous around the world, but we need to do ALOT of hard work on increasing her likeability which is not going to be easy because she lacks some of the key things I've noted above which you either have or you don't have. You can make ANYONE famous - look at Kim Kardashian - but that doesn't mean people will like her.

And I truly hope you adore all of your clients. Because otherwise, they're fucked.

The fact that Anna Wintour recommended Max to Amal a year ago has created another dark hole for us all to go down into. There is a lot of fiction being written here and it's not very believable. Give me a break. We don't know anything about how Amal knows Anna. But I sure as hell don't think George was so concerned about Amal's looks that he proceeded to refashion her look. She looked pretty damn good before she even met George.

IMO she looked pretty much the same as she does now, only not as thin. Her clothes may be more expensive and her makeup a bit more refined, but her style is the still same. She even wears some of the same clothes she had before. I don't think it would be easy to "mold" her into an image that doesn't fit her image of herself. She seems to know her own mind.

So George meets her a year ago and right away Anna Wintour fix a hair dresser for her?

In my opion either he knew Amal before, which Nina Clooney kind of suggested in one statement or this sounds like an arrangement.

LIZZY - I hate to say it but didn't I post exactly that, please look back on old post.

Anna Wintour I was told was bought in Oct/Nov. Anna, was accompanied by stylists to be based in London. Work really didn't start until mid February. (So obviously things were not sealed until then.)

When I posted I was strongly critiqued by many. So I shut up.

There are non so blind as those who will not see!

You say WTO this is George, the guy from Kentucky, who turn his back on friends and family, as we see not yet Kentucky party, wife to busy saving world maybe. But badly.

Her last attempt in Greece, where she mixed up statue in  speech about head and body, then SHE blames someone else, they wrote speech she was proud to take credit for until it went wrong.  She better off in Kentucky IMO I f she ever goes.  Maybe not, you Way2old mention "class". Maybe not right class for her "set" we heard ALL about last week upper crust diplomat etc party. Alamuddin style not Kentucky style. Yes? way2old?
Good idea keep "classes apart" separate parties.
APPALLING BEHAVIOUR!

Amal does have the same style. She is probably very much the same person. She does, however, have a more polished (and thinner) public image. It's not surprising. In fact, it's expected. Every girlfriend of every A-list star undergoes an upgrade. It's no different, and probably more notable, with George -- and would go double for the woman who became his wife. I'm just saying that I don't think there is anything nefarious in the motives, outside of looking the best she can look.

I have no problem understanding Alisonfan's post. She is making the point that Amal is elitist and snobby from a social climbing family. Blind Freddie can see that. What a desperate attempt at social climbing that Danesfield house wedding celebration was as Amal and her family invited London's Arab high society for a meet and greet with George Clooney who was like a show pony to be wheeled out to anyone that Baria wanted to impress. And then that lovely quote: "We're famous now". LOL

It's true. The inconsistency between Amal's love of luxury, designer dresses, $700,000 diamond rings and lavish no-expenses-spared neverending wedding extravaganzas while professing to care about the poor and downtrodden is EXACTLY the problem with her. The woman is laughable. George has always lived a lavish lifestyle of the Lake Como mansion and private jets but was able to keep it somewhat low key. All George's recent incredibly lavish spending seems to be Amal related. And she is so stupid that she doesn't seem to realise how bad some of it is looking e.g. a lawyer travelling with a personal hairstylist and makeup artist on work trips. Maybe George was furious in the back seat of the car because he realises he's been conned by her and his eyes are finally opened  Mad

PS: Do you think they recycled the china cockatoos from the wedding celebration at Danesfield house? LOL Such a shame to throw such tasteful decorations out..... affraid

I agree W2O4D,  George probably upgrades his girlfriends and of course the wife much more. Why he needed to shorten the hemline as part of Amal's upgrade is beyond me. 

But it is the timeline that is interesting. He couldn’t possibly have know from the moment he met her that she was going to be the next girlfriend or wife. So if he really met her in September 2013, this sounds like an arrangement to me. But a big part of the word uses arranged marriages, works for a lot of people. 

But we don't really know WHEN he met her. He said Italy but he didn't give an occasion.  So maybee he met her earlier when he was still dating Stacy. Maybee the relationship with Stacy was really over long before it was officially over. She did married Jared very quickly but maybee it wasn't so quickly? Or he cheated on Stacy? I know some people want to see George as a serial dater with one woman at a time. But in my experience men who sleep with a lot of women are not the most fateful types. 

I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Stan is behind this hair dresser story to keep us all wondering. I never believed the love story so I am not disappointed. I look at it like a puzzle with many pieces missing and of course I want to solve the puzzle. And maybee this is Stan's plan. If George wanted to convince me and the rest of the word that he loved Amal, he could have done a better job after all he is an actor and being George Clooney is his best act. Looking forward to the next chapter.You are the Man Stan.Smile

Alisonfan - I'm sorry I don't remember your post. If you noticed this before I did, good for you. I still don't know, though, how Amal's collaboration with Anna Wintour came about. It may have been through George. Or it may have been through her mother and her connections. As you say, Amal's family travels in pretty fancy circles. Once Amal met George her mother may have decided Amal needed to spiff up her image if she wanted to hook him.

As for George turning his back on friends and family - that hasn't happened and, IMO, it never will. He is famous for his long-term friendships and his close ties to his family. He has said it is the thing he is proudest of in his life. That won't change. If Amal has a problem with the people who have stood by him all his life she'll either have to get over it or get out of the way, because he won't abandon them. George may be many things, but he's not a snob.

In this country when we talk about what class someone belongs to, we're talking about how much money they have - not that they're better than anyone else. If you make enough money you move into the upper classes. George may not have been born into money, but he worked his way into the upper class a long time ago. He also definitely has class - a quality of elegance of thought and behavior that sets him apart from a lot of rich people who have no class at all.

 They didn't have separate parties because his friends and family are too" low class" to mix with hers. They were introducing George to her family and friends. They'll probably do the same with Amal in the US - though I doubt they'll make as much of a show of it. He's a well established A-lister here. Getting married didn't change his status - it did bump her up the social ladder, and her family let everyone know it.

My opinion? And this is just me talking shit because I have a little time to kill while I wait for work time to start in a different time zone.

I think George and Stacy were over by very early in 2013, the Stacy visit in March just being for show. And I think Stacy had Jared in the wings already. If there was any cheating, I'd vote for her doing it. And I think George's reaction to that had at least a little to do with the timing and rapid development of his relationship with Amal. He is, after all, not the kind of man a woman cheats on -- at least, not until then -- and it altered his MO a bit.

I think he met Amal long before they're saying. In my mind, not the 'love at first sight' story that's been reported, because George is not a chump in a romantic comedy, but she was definitely on his radar. But when he made the decision about Amal, he went all in. That's what he does. He commits only to what he really wants, and once he does, that's it.

I don't think George or Stan would bother about planting a hair stylist story. The stylist has probably been getting a hundred calls a day, and he knows the value to his business to talk. Some things are as simple as they look.

Again, JMO.

Again LizzyNY well said.

Any new tidbit of info that comes to light about George's private life always leads to gobs of speculation. I was looking back at the Stacy thread when the gossip started about them dating, There were like 4 pages of postings on the who, what, when, where. All just guessing. No one knew the real story, George wants it that way. He draws his own line on what he wants kept private and what he's willing to share. We are just not willing to accept that so stories get invented.

My opinion is that George does not makeover his girlfriends. Ridiculous is my mind. Amal was smart and fashion savvy enough before she met George that if she wanted to up her style she could figure it out on her own or go to people she knew. And she probably did become more self conscious of her looks to some extent. God, I know most women would knowing they would be thrust in the public eye by becoming involved with GC.

I suspect I am in the small minority. Most here seem to think George is very heavy-handed in managing the image of any woman he's involved with.

Oh my lots of people Alisonfan. I'm sure we all have been guilty at some time in our lives of not being sincere. Duh - even George. In so many public situations for so much of his life I'm sure he has been less than candid at times. He has even said in an interview that he will lie if he feels it would be hurtful to someone.

Would that be "he'd lie if the truth would be hurtful to someone."
I seem to remember him either saying it or being quoted as
saying it.
Maybe Our Clooney Guru, Melbert, will remember ?

I think it was Vanity Fair piece. George, Daniel Craig and Damon were the cover and it was a quiz. George was asked if he would ever lie and I think he said if it would cause harm.

Sounds familiar.  Thinking maybe an Esquire interview before Amal.  If memory serves me ( and it often doesn't LOL) several A-listers were asked a series of questions such as "what quality do you admire in a woman"  George's answer was "kindness".  Anyone else remember this article??

I agree with you, Donnamarie, and for the scant knowledge we have of Max Coles' professional relationship with Amal, no one actually knows how they made the connection, altho clearly from all reports he's known for being exceptional at what he does.......can see that Anna Wintour would know that, it's not special knowledge, and just to confound things I seem to remember Alisonfan alluding to the fact that Amal was leaving John Frieda's salon a few months ago too.

It wouldn't surprise me to learn that George and Amal were in New York together, early on in the relationship, both possibly for work. She may well have had contact with Wintour. After all her friends and bosses aren't exactly bottom of the heap - Pigozzi, Kofi Annan, Jared Cohen, the Farrows and many more.

George is often in NYC too at events - the Vanity Fair Oscars shoot with Anne Leibovitz, must have been November/December. And when was the Gravity premier?

Alisonfan -A. Not "every person" has a big wedding where all sides mix and are happy. Weddings are expensive, and a huge wedding where all their friends and relatives were invited would probably cost as much as, if not more, than the Venice wedding. IMO, he gave Amal the wedding she and her family wanted.
      Some of his show business friends couldn't attend because of work. I'm sure the same was true of his family members. To my knowledge they are mostly middle-class working people. Attending a big wedding would be an expense for them they might not be able to afford, and it might not have been possible for them to take the time off from work to attend.
     
               B. Their wedding in Venice was, by all accounts, an elegant, tasteful affair. The media circus would have occurred no matter where they got married. If you think that makes them "nouveau riche snobs" who lack class - well, that's your opinion.
 
              C. If you hadn't noticed, I said it bumped HER up the social ladder and HER FAMILY let everyone know it. I think a lot, if not all, of the circus we've been seeing has come from her side. George just let her have what they wanted - just like many grooms do. Now that the wedding is over and they've let everyone know that their daughter snagged George Clooney maybe they'll stop showing off. I don't think George will tolerate that kind of bragging much longer. It's not the way he operates.

perhaps the reason they've been "underground" ( read.. no sightings except the reception) since signing the license?

Also might explain why they were not all smiles in the car enroute to the party.  BTW.. my opinion... one of the smartest things George did in the car was to put some distance between him and her.  If the paps went crazy with just them sitting there, if they were really close/ embracing/ nibbling on ears- the paps would have been out of control.. someone could have gotten seriously injured or even worse.

Possibly in deepest Sonning - or as it's getting chilly here, maybe they've nipped back to Greece ahead of Hail Caesar - and then Thanksgiving in Cabo? -

Oh, and I think they had exactly who they wanted to the actual wedding......catching up with friends and relatives around the world was bound to come later...........didn't he say their families cover 60 countries now when he was slating the Mailonline?

I hope he's either in his production office, on a set, or at a reading table -- doing what he loves to do.

... Not that he doesn't love doing his wife. (Ahem)

Ooh, how did I miss that?!

Where to go, where to go with this...? So many, many choices. I'm actually stymied by the possibilities.

But I'm confused. If she knows this, why does she stay so skinny? Are the lights always on in their bedroom? Does she use a surrogate to keep Brad happy? Do they all? Is Hugh Jackman the only satisfied man on the A-list?

Maybe Angelina wants to go into politics so she can get laid like a real woman.

Bringing it back to topic... ummm... Angelina has long, dark hair like Amal's and they both wore it down for their weddings. But we don't know who Angie's stylist was.

Oh yes on topic.
I liked Amal's hair on her wedding day and
throughout the weekend too.
It's interesting to read Max Coles interview as I hadn't thought about the humidity. It didn't affect Amal's hair though. She's lucky that it's so thick, inherited from her mother I'd imagine.

Staying on topic sort of I wonder if Amal's and Angie's respective husbands yell at them for clogging up the shower and sink drains when they wash their hair? You know how it is when you have lots of long hair. Hair, hair, everywhere. Just a thought.

Oh Way2 what did you mean that maybe Angie wants to go into politics so she can get laid like a real woman? Curious about that comment.
