1820-40 HAIR & FACIAL HAIR LOOKS
Dear "Undaunted" Cast & Extras,
Hi, and thank YOU sooooo much in advance for your help on this show.
Below are the looks we need for on this show. Be prepared to let us put you into one of these looks.
In this time period, Men were clean shaven, wore long mutton chops, or chin straps. It was a clean shaven and groomed era, with rare exceptions.
Most of the men (we will be depicting) were church leaders. Even most of the mobsters were civic leaders and would've been clean shaven or had groomed facial hair.
We'd LOVE to get a variety of these looks, so pick what your character had (if known) if not, pick a look you like. If you can shape it before arriving, awesome, if not, we'll take care of it when we see you.
Medium length, just to the nape, no longer, and parted on the side.
For us to create looks similar to these, hair must be clean and dry, with TEXTURE (lots of tight curls all over to create volume and hold).
Please set your hair the night before (if using a heatless method) or before you come (if using heat). Remove any curlers or braids just after you arrive. That will help lock in curl.
If you have tiny pink foam rollers, electric hot sticks, or benders, they’ll work great too. Here’s the method for curling it this way:
Here is a video tutorial of another way to prep the hair for this show if you can braid. https://youtu.be/pfOwWIVF8NU (We need more volume than what we showed in this video, so if you prefer to do braids, please do at least 5 or 6 braids that start at the roots and go all the way to the ends.)
They didn't wear any makeup in this period, so it's a no-makeup look.
If any makeup is used, it should be invisible to the eye, concealer, light blush, and lip balm. No visible mascara should be used, and no lash Extensions (unless they are trimmed to look completely natural)
Nails: Please remove all nail polish and fake nails prior to arrival.
Thanks so much!
