As soon as we saw the trailer for American Hustle, we knew the movie marked (yet another) serious hair moment for Jennifer Lawrence. But, we're all about giving credit where credit is due. So, we gotta say, Lawrence wasn't the only one who really stepped up to the beauty plate while filming the disco-era drama. (Did you catch those curlers on Bradley Cooper?!)
The Cut caught up with the talent behind both the hair and makeup departments for American Hustle. And, after reading their firsthand accounts of the daily beauty routines endured by the actors, we wonder if the whole cast might deserve an Oscar for "Most Commitment to Beauty in a Motion Picture."
Intrigued yet? Click on over to The Cut to learn more about everything from the intricacies of Christian Bale's combover to the why behind our beloved J.Lawr's over-the-top 'do. If nothing else, scroll toward the bottom to discover the shampoo/conditioner combo at least partially responsible for Amy Adams's perpetually shiny hair. (The Cut)
