But they can co-exist and since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like Lily Aldridge, Molly Sims, Kim Kardashian, Ali Larter, Terri Seymour and most recently, Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.
Perfect and just in time to update last year’s list of celebrity glam squads. Last year, I hunted down the various glam squad photos celebs have posted on Instagram, WhoSay and Twitter. This small team that help get a celeb woman ready for an event, award show or other red carpet moment consist usually of a hairstylist, a manicurist, a stylist, a make-up artist and a personal assistant. They work in tandem and sometimes simultaneously and the glam squad photo shows them in action.
Of course, most of the glam squad photos are staged. Let’s be real. I wouldn’t want to be having my hair hot curled while my head is being maneuvered and shifted by the make up artist. Ouch. I’ve had a curling iron dropped on me before and I have the scar still to prove it.
Also, showing off your glam squad is another way of telling your followers and fans that you are that special that you can’t get dressed on your own. This is not shade. I’d hire myself a team in a hot second! And you know this because even famous stylists who once were glam squad members are now celebrities in their own right. (think June Ambrose and Rachel Zoe)
These days, you can even rent one. Companies like Miami-based GlamSquad (pictured above) will bring a team to you starting at $75. Not bad!
Last fall, Her Campus ranked some of the squad members of the biggest celebrities whose work we see on the faces and hair of influential women.
Here are some of the glam squads we’ve seen posted on social media recently.
