Leesburg's Victoria Stiles has no problem crossing the aisle.

Fresh off freshening up Democrat Bernie Sanders for his Time magazine cover shot, Stiles, a local hair and makeup artist, moved to the right Wednesday to groom Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, a conservative senator from Texas.

Stiles prepped Cruz for a segment on the Eternal World Television Network (EWTN), a Catholic-themed programming network.

In addition to serving as the makeup chief at EWTN in Washington, Stiles owns A Little Wedding Studio in downtown Leesburg.

Stiles engaged in some friendly back-and-forth with the first-term senator Wednesday.

β€œI told him he had my father's vote but he'd have to work a little harder for mine,” Stiles told the Times-Mirror. β€œHe said 'challenge accepted, but I think you should listen to your father.'”

The dialogue provided Stiles a nice pick-me-up, she said. Her father is having heart surgery Friday morning.

"I think [Cruz] somehow knew I wasn't quite on the ball today and asked me how my day was going," Stiles said. "I replied, 'Well, it's going' ... He was very sympathetic to the news and said hope all goes well and thank your father for his support."

Cruz is currently fourth in the Real Clear Politics average of national polls, closely behind Sen. Marco Rubio, while Donald Trump and Ben Carson hold the one and two spots, respectively.

In September, it was up to Stiles to spruce up Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, for his Time cover photo.

Stiles has styled many a celebrity, including Vice President Joe Biden (D), business mogul Richard Branson, NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, the Washington Wizards' Bradley Beal, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and a dozen others.
