You wouldn’t guess from the top photo that doing the hairstyles for Sparkle was relatively easy…but they were because of wigs!

The movie’s hairstylist Kim Kimble explained her reliance on fabulous fakes to 8makeup.com. “Wigs were the quickest way to change the hair,” says Kim. The hair wardrobe included about 200 wigs with tools such as 20 boxes of hair pins and 36 cans of hair spray.

8makeup also spoke to the movie’s makeup artist Marietta Carter-Narcisse about enhancing the eyes. She said they had a stock of a “couple hundred pairs” of fake eyelashes!

These insider tips are good news for real women who think glamorous looks are too hard to do. With extensions, tools like bun holders and a little advice from your hairstylist, you can make your hair Sparkle, too.
