No wonder American Idol contestants never have a bad hair day. Two weeks before the iconic Fox singing competition signs off for good, head hairstylist Dean Banowetz took over our Instagram account to give us a peek at the contestants’ pre-show prep. And as you can see, this talented celebrity stylist knows how to work some major magic.
Banowetz gave us a peek at his loaded styling station (can we have one of everything, please?), as well as candid shots of Dalton Rapattoni getting flat-ironed, Sonika Vaid getting smoothed out, and a teaser for La’Porsha Renae’s surprising new look, which you really need to see to believe. (One word: Gorgeous.) And Mackenzie Bourg’s ‘do is a real stand out — or is that a real stand up?
In addition, Banowetz shared a snap of Idol alum Katharine McPhee taking matters into her own hands. Maybe he should hide the scissors! Click through to see all of Banowetz’s backstage Idol pics, and get inspired.
American Idol airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
