Stylin’ with Jennifer Lawrence

May 10, 2012

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.

Thank you. I don't think it's puberty, though; there are reasons for this depression that I know of, but it won't be that simple to treat. One, my crush probably doesn't like me back, most definitely, my mom is screaming more often, and I have a lot of stress.

Sure you may be going through something but see first how positive your life really is, then see the negative.
