S3 | Ep. 6: Serving Looks on The Bear with Makeup Artist Ignacia Soto-Aguilar and Hair Stylist Allyson Vickers

Hulu’s The Bear may be about grief, but I’ve had so much fun in my conversation with Ignacia Soto-Aguilar and Allyson Vickers, the makeup and hair artists behind the new drama everyone is talking about. They tell us about the importance of creating ‘maintainable’ looks for characters, preparing to film theater-inspired scenes, and how they’re gearing up for Season 2. Ignacia and Allyson compare their time working on set to in fashion and glam environments, behind-the-scenes moments, and the creative decisions that has made the show such a smash hit.
