Styling Secrets to Carrie Bradshaw's Iconic Hairstyles Part 1 of 3
Zellana: We talked to Sarah Jessica Parker’s lead hairstylist from Sex in the City who lets Bella in on how she created Carrie’s hairstyles for the new movie.
So the crimped half of half down look, tell us about that?
Mandy Lyons: We knew that we wanted to do a different play on semi tease textures that are nothing related to the flashbacks. I think because she was wearing that suit and she was the best man, we just decided to do something completely out there and it's the kind of hairdo where you're going to hate or love it.
Zellana: In a scene with her shopping with Samantha, tell us about that look.
Mandy Lyons: We wanted something that was really easy but wasn’t a bomb. This was just one of those days where I twisted it up. Some of it was falling down. I pinned it and she have to go.
Zellana: Taking that look and going into the formal chignon.
Mandy Lyons: It just made sense that she would be wearing a hair that look more formal, so we did a very large bun that has a lot of pieces in it. And some of the pieces are slightly blonder so you get a sense of different textures, some dimensions and it played in the light really beautifully.
Zellana: The girls night out, Carrie is wearing this beautiful beaded headband.
Mandy Lyons: It's a huge piece. It's from the 20s. She wanted me to put it in her hair and we’d already decided to do something quite big. And it worked well because the band pushed it down and then it just went out from there. I used three or four different sizes of curling irons that the roots and on the ends, that’s how that one came around.
Zellana: The fabulous scarves and hats we’re seeing, tell us who is your inspiration was for that.
Mandy Lyons: While we were in Morocco, I needed to design something that looked constantly good in a wind machine. It was dry, so it was perfect for the kind of waves that we were doing. That was the kind of texture but I went for rushed out waves. A lot of the clothes for Carry Bradshaw were based from the 70s. It all worked into play using the scarves and the turbans. It just really helped to keep it off her face. But she's a pro. She knows what to do if it's blowing across her face. She just turns into the wind and it's gone. Thank you very much everyone for watching Bella TV and I too can't wait to see it on the big screen.
Zellana: Check out part II of our three-part series as Mandy Lyons gives us the inside scoop on how she transformed Sarah Jessica Parker into Carry Bradshaw. Thanks for watching Bella TV, stay beautiful.
