LA Confidential’s Look at a Capitol Wig & Interview with the Film’s Colorist

Cherry Petenbrink is talking to LA Confidential magazine about the work she did on the film, and they have this new picture of the colorful wigs used in the film for the Capitol citizens!

Here’s some of the Q&A with Cherry:

How specific was the hair direction on set?
CHERRY PETENBRINK: The director [Gary Ross] was very specific on the lead color makeovers. Josh Hutcherson’s hair is naturally very dark and we had to dye it an exact shade of sandy ash blonde. Jennifer Lawrence is a natural ash blonde with highlights but played a brunette. Thousands of dollars were spent just renting wigs.

How did the books help you develop the hair concepts?
Reading the books several months before the project started was a huge asset. I had a pretty clear vision of each character in my mind. The end result was dead on to my original ideas of how the characters would look when brought to life.

Do you think the look will become a trend?
CP: I predict that we will see a lot of different period influence popping up in fashion, hair and makeup trends—splashes of bright colors in hair, finger waves and up-styles.
