The glam squad of numerous of the ‘Real Housewives’ consists of makeup artist, Priscilla DiStasio, and hair stylist, Julius Michael. They are the beauty dream team!
For years, for many ‘Real Housewives’ franchises, Priscilla DiStasio and Julius Michael have been the go-to glam squad. Whether the ‘Real Housewives’ have filming for the show, an event, or an episode of Watch What Happens Live -you can bet that Priscilla and Julius are there by their side to glam them up. Especially when they comes to New York City for long press days, to promote the show. Priscilla and Julius are with the ladies from sun up to sun down.
According to Page Six, Julius explained, “Everyone thinks that we work for Bravo. We don’t work for Bravo. We work for ourselves. So every time that we do work with one of the ‘Housewives, it’s all request. The only time that we actually work for Bravo is press days or anything pertaining to that like cast photos or openers.” Often, Priscilla and Julius do the looks for the confessionals on the show during filming. Plus, they of course do the reunion show looks. Priscilla explained, “When we are at WWHL, we’re not technically the in-house glam. So we are there upon request, which speaks volumes because we’re always there.”
Initially Julius started working with Tamra Judge for The Real Housewives of Orange County and it took off from there. He owns his own hair salon in Scarsdale, New York – outside of the city. Priscilla became close friends with Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey back during season two. Throughout the seasons, you can see Priscilla filming with Teresa. She’s often shown doing Tre’s makeup on the show and travels with her for appearances and events. Teresa even acknowledges Priscilla in her books. Teresa said of their friendship, “Priscilla is not only an amazing makeup artist, she is also one of my closest and most valued confidantes. She is like the sister I never had.”
Years ago, after Priscilla had left her job at a local MAC store, she started a Facebook page and got an email shortly after to do VH1’s ‘My Big Friggin’ Wedding.’ That’s when she met Teresa and has been with her ever since. For a long time, Priscilla would be doing Tre’s makeup and Julius would be doing Melissa Gorga’s hair. Now that the sister-in-laws are on good terms – they both get their hair and makeup done by this duo.
Priscilla said that their work is, “blood, sweat and tears.” She divulged, “We wake up at the crack of dawn, we don’t have the typical 9 to 5. We have the 4 a.m.-’til-midnight. We’re done when production is done and that can take two days at times!” The hours are long for Priscilla and Julius when they are doing work for the ‘Real Housewives.’
The sky is the limit for these two beauties. Priscilla just launched her own lipgloss line with Rincon cosmetics, and Julius is focused on his hair salon and wants to start a hair extension line. Priscilla summed up, “For both of us, it wasn’t an easy journey and it’s still not and to be honest, we’re in such a peak of our careers but it hasn’t even started yet. Doing ‘Housewives’ has been a great staple to be with, but there’s so much world that the world hasn’t seen from Julius Michael and Priscilla DiStasio.”
We will stay tuned to see what is next for this dream team! Priscilla and Julius are both super sweet people. I met both of them during my early days in New York. The first time I met Priscilla was at a winter Posche fashion show in New Jersey, and the first time I met Julius was downtown at an event in Manhattan. They’re both incredibly talented and hard-working. (Which is why they are sought after by all of the ‘Real Housewives’ from all of the franchises!)
