Hairstyles Inspired by Scream Queens
If you’ve gotten hooked into the wildly fascinating, darkly humored show Scream Queens, you should check this rapid fire show full of Chanels. This spooky-themed show from Ryan Murphy borders more on comedy, but everyone want to know more about the hairstyles. The show’s main character Chanel has sidekicks–or minions who absolutely worship her, doing everything she tells them to and wants from them. In exchange, they receive popularity and the supreme position at school. Self-possessed Chanel cares so little about these three that she literally calls them Chanel number two, Chanel number three and Chanel number five. She doesn’t even know what their real names are, and she doesn’t care what they are, either. Recently, Jennifer Johnson (Gossip Girl,) the show’s main hairstylist revealed to the world a lot of details regarding the way she designs the hairstyles for all the show’s beauties, along with their flashy hair accessories. Inquiring minds–of fans who’ve become entranced by this show since it first aired in September–want to know.
A Little Goes a Long Way
Among the questions, Jennifer Johnson’s been answering are some pressing ones regarding the potential for Lea Michele’s character getting a makeover. Johnson credits her five years of work on Gossip Girl for giving her the expertise to be able to pull off her high tone styles with such an apparent ease. She enjoys the fact that her hairstyling history speaks for itself among everyone in the biz. Skyler Samuels plays Grace, and has admitted being a diehard fan of the series, sharing how she and her mom would always watch the show so that they could do the same hairstyles themselves. She confesses that many times, she’ll take a Gossip Girl hair design and tweak it to become a do for the new show. Anytime Johnson is questioned about makeovers and glam effects, her default answer is to tell the questioner to “Tune in to watch the show and you’ll see.”
How They Do it and Manage to Keep Their Hair in Place
All the antics and special features are a bit demanding of the girls’ hair, and a lot more than in the show “Gossip Girl.” In order to make sure the hairdos remain in place throughout, it’s all about the products that really work and hold. Especially as the girls on this show are known to do most of their own stunts. Without the right products, it could be a disaster. And as far as accessories go, the Chanel’s impressive hair accessories–which are a huge focal point of the series–from chains to barrettes–an insider secret. Most of these cool finds are from Etsy and Ricky’s NYC. Earmuffs come from Kizmuffs. These were Billie Lourd’s pastel ear covers–the Chanel number three.
