Denzel Washington honors his longtime hair stylist Larry Cherry at Hollywood Beauty Awards

When you’re an A-list movie star, it’s likely that you surround yourself with people whom you trust to do a good job for you.

And on Sunday night, Denzel Washington turned out for the Hollywood Beauty Awards so he could pay tribute to his longtime hair stylist Larry M. Cherry.

The actor, 64, has had Cherry on his team since he worked with him on the 1992 biopic Malcom X, directed by Spike Lee.

Cherry has been serving as hair stylist for filmmaker Spike Lee since the director’s debut movie She’s Gotta Have It in 1986.

After hitting it off with Washington, he’s continued to be his hair stylist from Courage Under Fire, The Siege and the Bone Collector in the mid to late 90s through to last year’s The Equalizer 2.

Their other collaborations include Training Day, John Q, Man On Fire, the Manchurian Candidate, Inside Man, American Gangster, The Taking Of Pelham 123, Unstoppable and Flight, among others.

In his on stage remarks, Washington described Cherry as a ‘consummate professional’ and as someone who ‘never takes credit.’

The Hollywood Beauty Awards were established in 2014 and recognize excellence in hair, makeup, styling and photography.
