Netflix continues to create original LGBTQ-focused programming and the latest addition is “Styling Hollywood.” The show follows the lives and careers of husbands Jason Bolden and Adair Curtis of JSN Studio. While Bolden stays busy styling A-list stars for the red carpet, Adair runs the couple’s interior design firm.
For the upcoming first season, streamable on the service Aug. 30, Bolden and Adair work with such talent as Yara Shahidi from “Black-ish” and “Grown-ish,” “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union and director Ava DuVernay. Adair will also tackle renovating the home of former “Pysch” star Dule Hill.
Bolden made the list of “25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood” put out by The Hollywood Reporter this year. He told Out magazine that the show will feature “two black men who love each other and their careers are doing really well. I personally know what it looks like for me because I live it. But I also look out sometimes and have to say, ‘I don’t see anything that mirrors myself and my husband.’”
The show has already received advance praise from DuVernay, who tweeted, “When your stylist is so stellar he has his own Netflix show. I know I speak on behalf of all the women who you help sparkle, we’re so happy and proud of you, your talent, your verve, your warm spirit. Congrats! XO!”
