Imagine this: You're sitting in a salon chair. A colorist asks what you're going for today. You proceed to pull out a photo of Emma Stone with rich auburn hair or a magazine clipping of Jennifer Lopez' subtle highlights. Whatever the celeb inspiration, it probably came courtesy of colorist to the stars Tracey Cunningham.

The Hollywood pro, who calls Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore clients, is one of the influential tastemakers being honored by Marie Claire's Image Maker Awards—a celebration of industry experts behind the biggest names in entertainment.

In partnership with the mag, E! Style Collective caught up with Tracey to discuss how to find the best color for you (unless you're Emma, who can apparently do no wrong), what clients really mean when they say they don't want ombré (they want ombré) and a few career highlights (hello, Cameron Diaz).

Watch the video below and stay tuned for more exclusive interviews from the creatives behind your favorite celeb trends.
