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.

Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

I've been bullied and teased before. Honesty a bullies opinion means no more than anyone else's opinion does so pay them no mind.

I've been bullied. I've been teased. But, you really shouldn't pay attention to bullies. If you compare them to everybody I'm the world, they're one tiny thing, so why should their opinion matter?
