An experienced makeup artist, fashion expert and accomplished actress, Jeannie Mai deliverers her exuberant personality and unbridled talent to The Style Network as Host of the hit fashion intervention series “How Do I Look?”. On the show, Mai joins two accomplices and one professional stylist to transform lucky fashion victims into beacons of style. New 11th season episodes can currently be seen every Saturday at 8pm et/pt on Style.
Mai launched her career as a successful celebrity stylist, with a roster of clients that includes Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys and Rosario Dawson. It wasn’t long before television Network’s noticed her work, and she snagged a position as the spunky, fashionable host on STIR, an Asian American magazine-style show on International Channel Networks. The program also picked up its first Emmy Nomination for 2005. Soon after, San Francisco music channel CMC invited her on as the first female VJ to host her own music countdown. Eager to learn the wraps on writing, she took on the role of entertainment reporter and producer on The WB’s “Daily Mixx” before moving to Los Angeles after being cast as co-host to Frankie Muniz in the MTV pilot, “Granted”.
Since then, she has been a popular reappearing host for E!, Style, MTV, TLC, USA, and Lifetime, just to name a few. In 2008, she took part in TV history’s first ever attempt to revamp Miss America’s 52 hopefuls on TLC’s “Miss America Reality Check,” starred Style’s special “Dude, Where’s Your Style?” and toured the world as the official spokesperson for Never Accept Ordinary, a line of cosmetics. In 2009, Mai joined “Extra” as a correspondent and weekend co-host and also appeared on The Style Network’s “What I Hate About Me” and “Lucky Shops,” TLC’s “10 Years Younger” and USA Network’s “Character Fantasy.”
