Hair & Beauty Secrets of Orange Is The New Black

The Cast of Orange Is the New Black 
Elle Magazine Spread







Main character Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is a little more dull and sad in Season 2. To make it look more realistic the make up team did minimal eye, cheek and lip make up. Piper has on D&G foundation and coconut oil in the hair to make it look dry and flat.


Lorna (Yael Stone) Morello is such a cutie pie she is always done up. She is obsessed with her imaginary "wedding", the make up team decided to give her a bridal inspired look for the show. D&G Classic Lipstick #620 and her hair is in curls by tying toilet tissue around it so it looks realistic, cause we all know they don't have curling irons in prison.






Daya (Dascha Polanco) the hair team decided to leave the blonde streaks in the hair on this pretty pregnant latina. They allowed it to grow out with the roots being the natural color just so it can look realistic. The makeup team emphasizes her lips so she can be the attractive one that no man can't keep their eyes off of.

Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) the weird psychotic God-loving meth addict is far more attractive in person, duh. The make-up team use fake dentures and colored them with a funky gray and nicotine color for the rotten look. Later on in the season she shows off her new pearly whites which is Manning's real teeth. Her hair has coconut oil for the dull and messy look.

Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) her hair has to to be combed out with a pick layer by layer in order to get the big curly look that makes her look so dominant. When her character is in the flashback scenes she has on adhesive nails colored and designed by the beauty team which takes a while to do, those of you who go to the nail salon very often should know.


Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" (Uzo Aduba) auditioned for the role wearing the same hairstyle she has on the show, that was jaw-dropping for me. The casting director loved it and let her keep it for the show. She is very beautiful in person but the make-up team does a good job of hiding it.







Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) her hair is naturally very big and poofy the hair team has to use a lot of products to lower it down every day. They
usually scrunch it up and let it air dry.



Red (Kate Mulgrew) for season 2 they brought Red's hair back to life with a mixture of purple and red hair dyes. A whole can full of hair spray in order to keep the hair teased, giving it a lioness look.
