One of the top hair stylists working in fashion today, Serge Normant performs his magic on the most beautiful actresses and models of our time. A tour de force of feminine fantasy, Serge Normant Metamorphosis is a dazzling summation of contemporary style, fashion and glamour - as envisioned by this gifted artist and captured in images by the world's leading fashion photographers. In transforming the looks of such well-known women as Kate Moss, Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Aniston, Liv Tyler and Susan Sarandon, Normant draws on each woman's individual essence and then uses hairstyling, makeup and clothing to turn her everyday appearance into something extraordinary. Whether it is a retro look made into a contemporary statement or a vision taken from the art world rather than the fashion pages, Normant's creations are not makeovers but rather journeys into a realm of enchantment. With a foreword by Julia Roberts and an introduction by Isabella Rossellini, this book will serve as an inspiration for all women seeking to enhance their beauty through the embellishments of fashion.

About the Author:

Serge Normant is one of the most celebrated hair stylists of our time, with clients including such superstars as Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Hurley and Isabella Rossellini. He is the author of Femme Fatale, also published by Thames & Hudson.

From Publishers Weekly:

This high-end, glossy collection of photographs of beautiful people pays tribute to the stunning talent of hairstylist Normant (who has worked with actors and supermodels from Cameron Diaz and Catherine Zeta-Jones to Julianne Moore and Kate Moss) and portrays its subjects in all their come-hither glory. The photos—taken by celebrity fashion photographers including Patrick Demarchelier and Herb Ritts—are staged extravaganzas, whether in color or b&w. There’s Ellen Barkin, draped in fur and sporting fishnets and a glamorous bob; Julia Roberts, seen in profile with an updo and tiara worthy of a Miss America; Bridget Hall on the phone, wearing a tiny, sequined two-piece, platform heels and her hair in Judy Garland-esque curls; and Sarah Jessica Parker as a Renaissance beauty, long hair loosely braided. While the book isn’t one to tote along to the salon in an effort to have a beautician copy a look, it nevertheless delightfully shows off Normant’s wild imagination.
