The Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild will honor Oscar-winning hair stylist Gail Ryan with a lifetime achievement award.

Ryan’s client Benicio Del Toro will present the award to her at the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards on Feb. 15 at Paramount Studios. Past recipients include Colleen Callaghan, Paul LeBlanc, Vivienne Walker and Sydney Guilaroff.

“She was the first staff hair stylist at NBC Studios and designed phenomenal creations on variety shows for the network,” guild president Susan Cabral-Ebert said in a press release. “Whether being the department head hair stylist on ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ or just part of the hair styling crew on a reality show, Gail’s tremendous talent has been inspirational to both seasoned veterans and those new to the business.”

Throughout her five decade-long career, the “coiffeuse to the stars” has created memorable characters through hair styling artistry. The pioneer has worked in TV on “The Dean Martin Show” and “Donny & Marie” and in film on Del Toro’s “The Wolfman,” “21 Grams” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” which earned her an Oscar.

Ryan has also styled Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, who starred in “21 Grams,” as well as Dustin Hoffman, Ray Liotta and Nick Nolte. Del Toro is her latest client.
