BIOGRAPHY
Adam Maclay is a hair and makeup artist located in New York City. He currently works at Patrick Melville Salon & Spa in Rockefeller Center. There he acts as a Sr. Stylist and Makeup Artist and conducts monthly workshops.


​Maclay is also a freelance artist where he works on many projects in the fashion, media and film industries. His work has been featured in many editorial spreads in both North America and Europe. Adam has been seen on WE Network's My Fair Wedding with David Tutera in seasons 2 & 3. He was also the principle makeup artist for the 2010 MTV VMA's in Los Angeles CA.


He recently participated in an Artist in Residence Program through The Studios of Key West. There he worked on creating headdresses that were made of organic and inorganic materials irrelevant to hair while maintaining shapes indicative of hairstyles. With 20 headdresses in total, the exhibit featured a range and creativity of his work through tactile and visual aids. Headdress making has become Adam's niche within the hair, makeup and fashion industries.


​For the last 3 years Adam has been working Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City where he has been involved in the It Gets Better Fashion Lounge and the Haute Hippie Fall 09' Fashion Show. He was the lead hairstylist for 2 seasons of Buckler (Spring 12' & Fall/Winter 12'). Through fashion and beauty Adam has been able to develop strong relationships with talented artists across the country. He is consistently challenging societal aesthetics and looking for inspiration.
