Ridge hairstylist up for daytime Emmy

Trudy Parisien worked on R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour which is filmed in B.C.

Trudy Parisien’s hairstyles for the characters that populate The Haunting Hour are a testament to her creativity.

From fairies and vampires to Russian farm folk, Parisien has no trouble crafting manes to suit the TV show’s fantasy world.

It’s no wonder her talents are garnering accolades from the TV industry. Parisien has snagged a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Hairstyling.

“This nomination is a huge deal, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” says Parisien, who worked on the show for two seasons.

“If I don’t win, I’m still very fortunate to have been nominated. Not many stylists get this opportunity. I’m very grateful.”

Parisien has worked as a makeup artist in the film and television industry since 1997.

After graduating at the top of her class from Blanche MacDonald Centre, one of Canada’s most prestigious makeup schools, she went on to have her work featured in numerous magazine ads and television commercials. Some of her best work came when Parisien got involved in the film and television industry where she worked on shows like Whistler, Far Cry, Alice I Think, Just Deal, Hiccups, and many others. During this time she did makeup for Ali Larter, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Amanda Crew, Antonio Sabato Jr., Dennis Hopper, and Luke Perry, to name a few.

R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour is a filmed-in-B.C. horror-fantasy series, which is nominated for a total of nine daytime Emmys this year.

Like the TV series Goosebumps, every episode features a different cast in a scary situation that would involve witches, ghosts, aliens, and other monsters.

The hairstyles Parisien created for the show included an 1800s look for an upperclass mother and her teenage daughter; hairdos from the 1950s; 1940s Russian farm folk and wispy coifs for old sick vampires.

The 40th annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards ceremony will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, June 16.
