Say what you will about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s style — there’s no denying that they’ve always had enviably thick, healthy hair. And while we would like to believe that the secrets to their lustrous locks lay inside their omnipresent jumbo Starbucks cups, as it turns out, there is an actual hair guru behind the scenes keeping their strands shiny.

Mark Townsend, who is also known for Lea Michele‘s glossy locks and Jennifer Lawrence‘s big cut earlier this year, keeps the twins’ tresses in top shape. And now he’s giving The Coveteur’s The Edit some behind-the-scenes scoop on how the magic happens.

“They have such amazing style, it is so inspiring. And it so personal,” Townsend says. “They don’t follow trends — they are usually setting them — so they do what works best for them, what looks best on them and it’s the same with their hair.”

Affordable Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Designs? Believe It

Much like Miley Cyrus, we believe Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen can do little wrong, stylewise. We’re big fans of Elizabeth and James and The Row and even affectionately admire their favored kooky rich bag-lady ensembles.

But because the Olsens’ designs tend to be priced for those closer to the Olsens’ income level, they generally stay on our “Wish List,” thought that may all change with the news that the sisters have created a collection for Norwegian high street retailer BikBok. With prices closer to Zara than, say, a new Mercedes-Benz (we’re looking at you, $55,000 backpack), we can finally fill our closets with the Olsen’s slightly edgy design aesthetic. There’s just one caveat: They only ship to Norway and Sweden.

Annabel Tollman, Celebrity Stylist, Dies at 36

The fashion world has suffered a great loss: Celebrity stylist Annabel Tollman passed away suddenly at the age of 36, the New York Daily News reports. She was found dead, apparently of natural causes, in her New York City apartment on Thursday.

Tollman’s clients included Scarlett Johansson, Shakira, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Some of her greatest styling moments were dressing Johansson in a form-fitting red Valentino gown for the 2006 Golden Globes and helping Kristen Wiig chicly navigate her Bridesmaids press tour in 2011.

Tollman, born in Brussels in 1977 and raised between the U.K. and N.Y.C, also worked as a fashion director for Interview magazine, and according to The Cut, was developing a Bravo series at the time of her death. She earned a degree in fashion journalism from Central St. Martins in London, and wrote for myriad publications. In 2010, she also became a spokeswoman for eBay Fashion, and was profiled in the New York Times, where she shared her fashion motto: “Make a fairy tale and go and live in it.”

While no signs of suspicious behavior surrounding her death were reported, an autopsy is planned, a NYPD spokesman said via WWD.
