Hollywood Hair guru George Caroll has cut, colored and styled many a celeb “do”. He’s joining Kidzworld to give you tips on achieving the star hairstyle of your dreams. Let’s first tackle the many looks of Katniss Everdeen herself, beautiful, talented Jennifer Lawrence.

Being a Hollywood film star isn't all parties and award ceremonies. To get into character as Katniss, Jennifer had to change her hair color. Transforming Jennifer Lawrence from a blonde bombshell into a rich brunette for The Hunger Games cost filmmakers $30,000 making it the world's most expensive "dye job"!

To search for her character's perfect hair color and avoid damaging Jennifer’s hair, Linda Flowers, head hair designer for The Hunger Games rented five $6,000 custom lace wigs in different shades, from light brown to dark brown with a little bit of red. The final color selection was a rich deep level five mahogany brown.

Achieving these types of color transformations is tricky and as a Hollywood colorist, we encounter these situations often. “Dying your hair multiple times can damage anyone’s locks” said Flowers. “If the color is too dark or too red you're looking at a much harsher process to take out some of that color. On the other hand, if you know what the target color is, it's possible to just use a color filler with a semi-permanent color which is much quicker and easier when it comes time to return back to your natural color”.

Celebrity stylist Mark Townsend is the man behind Jennifer’s more blonde current look and color, which employs lots of "second-day texture” aka a bed-head look.  For a dressy red carpet look he began by applying gel mousse to Jennifer's damp hair and then blow-drying with a large round brush.

Next he separated out three-inch sections of hair and curled it around a one-inch curling iron. To create the second-day texture effects finish he used a pom mist styling wax. For the chignon (fancy bun) itself, Jennifer's hair is braided and swept up with what looks like a vintage necklace (or two) wound through her braids creating an oval as it encircles the base of the chignon. “Her new color is actually a better look then her pale blond color”, Mark says. “I love her gold highlights with a touch of caramel undertones in between giving her a Spring/Summer look”. Think skin tone as well when choosing a color.

Hiya. My cousin is getting married next Wednesday! The only thing is I really don't want to go. This may sound disrespectful and/or rude, but I don't really get along with his fiancé. I can't talk to her properly (incredibly stiff and hard to talk to her) and I don't think she likes me that much. Also, I'm kinda (largely) unsocial in big groups, and the fiancé apparently has a giant family coming. -.- Also, my dog -which we brought home a few months ago- hasn't had proper vaccinations (we found out she was slightly neglected and had matts everywhere. It must've been so painful) and can't get her into a kennel place (Kennel cough) or dog sitting service on such short notice. My mum will probably be staying home with her and dad and sister is going. But mum can't really say "I have to look after the dog" because they'll find it disrespectful and my cousin and his fiancé doesn't really like my at home family. The last resort is to make a excuse (but my mum doesn't really want to lie) and I'd like to make the excuse of I'm ill and mum needs to take care if me. If I have to go, does anyone have tips for going to a wedding you don't want to go to. sorry for long post,

This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!
