In Style Reveals Hair Secrets Straight From ‘The Hunger Games’ Set

In Style has spoken with ‘The Hunger Games’ hair department head Linda Flowers and she has an interesting and uplifting comment about the movie.

“This was one of the most complex, detailed movies I’ve ever worked on,” hair department head Linda Flowers told InStyle.com. “People are going to be blown away by how beautiful and breathtaking it is.”

Linda Flowers also commented on the number of wigs and time they used on set on the hair.

3,000: People who were processed through the hair and makeup tents each week. “Extras couldn’t just have their normal hair. Everyone had to be in the style of the time,” said Flowers.

500: Cast members and extras who had their eyebrows bleached, including Elizabeth Banks, who plays Effie Trinket.

400: Cast members and extras wearing wigs in a single day of filming. “We went with odd permutations of colors like dusty rose and chartreuse,” Flowers said. “The challenge was to make them look couture and sophisticated.”

45: Hairdressers working in a single day.

20: Minutes spent creating Katniss Everdeen’s signature braid for Jennifer Lawrence.

3: Colored wigs worn by Elizabeth Banks: One pink, one green, and one lavender.

1: Wig worn by Stanley Tucci, who plays Caesar Flickerman. “It’s a dark navy blue wig in a Karl Lagerfeld-style ponytail,” she says.
