LOS ANGELES, April 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Danielle 'Dee' Daly, one of Canada's most prolific makeup and hair artists, will return for season six of the reality TV series, The Next Star hosted by Carlos Bustamante. The show finds, develops and showcases Canada's next uprising music star that is 15 years old or younger.
The Next Star will tour Montreal, Halifax, Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg and Vancouver in April to find contestants. It broadcasts in July on YTV.
Daly has appeared on five consecutive seasons of the show and will serve as Creative Director of Makeup and Hair.
"I think that what I bring to the show is that glitz and glamour," Daly said, "what makeup and hair is about. You can put people in great clothes. They can sing and dance. But until they have their makeup, it's not a complete look."
Daly joins a team of 'star school' stylists and coaches including Jasmine Denham-Baird (Vocals), Michael Riccio (Dance choreography) and Peter Papapetrou (Wardrobe). The expert panel develops new images and performing techniques that match the musical persona of each contestant.
Daly most recently worked on makeup and hair for Drake's music video Started from the Bottom and Kendrick Lamar's video, Poetic Justice featuring Drake.
Daly is the brand ambassador for Head & Shoulders Canada. She's styled many entertainment celebrities including Lady Antebellum, Justin Bieber, Nickelback, David Guetta and Robert Pattinson. She's also crafted makeup and hair for Canada's Next Top Model, Canadian Idol, and Mr. Friday, and for the films Servitude, Textuality and Coopers' Camera.
Canada's next star is voted on and selected by viewers during its season finale. The show's judges are Keshia Chante, Tara Oram and Mark Spicoluk.
"I had the pleasure of working with Dee in 2012," Oram said. "Her expertise and professionalism was refreshing and I believe she has the skills, personality and drive that help enhance our show and make it extraordinary."
Winners receive an opportunity to record a studio single. Season five winner Brooklyn Roebuck was singed to CMT/Corus Entertainment with distribution through Sony Music. Prior finalists who inked record deals include Victoria Duffield (Warner) and Alyssa Reid (Wax Records).
