CUTE COUPLE ALERT: “I knew really early that we would get married—or be together for a long time,” says 31-year-old Alex Polillo of wife Mara Roszak, 29, as she nods in agreement inside their Los Angeles home in Silver Lake. Personifying young, hip Hollywood, the rising celebrity hairstylists met through a mutual friend and soon became inseparable, personally and professionally. Her clients include Emma Stone and Mila Kunis, his, Felicity Jones and Lizzy Caplan—they share Kate Mara—and when one isn’t available, the other steps in. “It sounds like it would be a hindrance, since this is a competitive job, but for us, it’s really worked out,” says Polillo. They have different approaches, but share a similar aesthetic and they often go to each other for inspiration. “We both have this element of ease, where the hair is never taking over the person,” says Roszak, who moonlights as a consulting celebrity hairstylist for L’Oréal Paris. “There is something very cohesive about our styles.”
