Breaking Dawn Movie Trailer
November 19, 2011 by staff
The site recently interviewed Beatrice De Alba, the hairstylist for the film, to ask her whose haircut was the most challenging and which actors and actresses had the best and most damaged hair. Look below to see the interview, and make sure to check out the interview on toofab. You can also find toofab on Twitter and Facebook.
toofab: Who was your favorite “Breaking Dawn” character to style?
Beatrice: Wow, that’s a tough one! Each character was my favorite as they were sitting in my chair! It’s an amazing feeling to have an actor sit down and transform into their character as I do their hair or apply their wig. I must say though, Mackenzie Foy (Renesmee) was a little ray of sunshine every time she walked in the trailer and I loved doing her very long wig!
toofab: Whose style was the most challenging?
Beatrice: I try to not make anyone’s hairstyle too complicated on any film because of the time constraints that we work under. The most challenging styles on “Breaking Dawn” were the lace-front wigs though. I am a perfectionist so I am really adamant about a wig never looking like a wig.
toofab: Who has the best hair on the cast?
Beatrice: So many of the cast members have amazing hair so it’s really difficult to say who’s is the best. Ironically, some of the most glorious heads of hair like Ashley’s and Nikki’s were underneath wigs!
toofab: Whose hair was the most damaged?
Beatrice: We had a color disaster with one of the Amazons in “Part 2.” I just made sure that she had plenty of Davines shampoo and conditioner to use at the hotel and that her hair was slathered in Davines conditioner under her wig.
toofab: Was there a style that you tried that didn’t quite work and you had to change?
Beatrice: All of the hairstyles that I designed had to be approved by the director, Bill Condon (love him!), and a LOT producers. Several of my designs had to be altered in some way. For example, I wanted to do Dakota Fanning’s hair in an Edward Gorey-style bob with bangs and the producers felt it was too cute so I pulled it back in a more severe ponytail.
