Marc Pilcher Bridgerton
Marc was the hair and makeup designer for “Bridgerton” season 1. Set in Regency-era England, “Bridgerton” was notable for its large cast and wide variety of ever-changing hairstyles.

In a period piece, it can be so easy because looks from those periods are quite often very similar, so it’s nice to put your own slant on them.”
He won an Emmy Award for his work on “Bridgerton.” His Emmy win for “Bridgerton” came just three weeks before his death. The second season of Bridgerton dedicated its first two episodes to Marc Pilcher.
